  • John Mc Cain passes away

U.S. Senator John McCain is being remembered for his courage, patriotism and service to his country.

McCain is survived by his seven children and his second wife, Cindy, whom he married in 1980 following a 15-year marriage to Carol Shepp.

John McCain is greeted by President Richard Nixon 1973 after he spending more than five years in a Vietnamese prisoner of war camp.

"I just knew it wasn't the right thing to do", he is later reported to have said.

The support extended to Israel's numerous offensives against Palestinians, including the 2014 bombardment of Gaza, which killed more than 2,250 residents of the besieged territory, the vast majority of them civilians.

McCain said. "Merely preventing your political opponents from doing what they want isn't the most inspiring work".

In 1982, McCain was elected to the House of Representatives. "Neither in Vietnam, nor at the peak of his political career in Washington".

Before the vote, McCain denounced the rise of partisanship in a heartfelt speech from the Senate floor on July 25, 2017.

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh called McCain "a true statesman and an American hero". He won that election as well, and he has been reelected to the Senate for five additional terms - most recently in 2016.

On Friday, Republican Mitt Romney said he was "blessed and humbled" to have been friends with McCain.

"He loved his land with all his might and he recognized Israel's challenges".

Senator John McCain passed away Saturday after battling brain cancer, according to a statement from his office.

'I stood with John, the two of us alone, in the very cell in the Hanoi Hilton where years of his life were lived out in pain but always in honor'.

In a post on Twitter, she said: "My heart is broken".

The scion of a decorated military family, McCain embraced his role as chairman of the Armed Services Committee, pushing for aggressive U.S. military intervention overseas and eager to contribute to "defeating the forces of radical Islam that want to destroy America". In 2008, he considered making independent Sen.

In the 2008 election and later on, McCain was a vigorous advocate of using all means of pressure to keep Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

A year ago - in what would be his last global trip - the United States Studies Centre in Sydney hosted an address by Senator McCain. In 2008, he won the Republican nomination, only to see his hopes dashed by the phenomenon that was Barack Obama and a crumbling United States economy.

The grim prognosis didn't appear to immediately slow down McCain who kept a robust schedule and didn't hold back his pointed criticism of President Donald Trump.

"The damage inflicted by President Trump's naivete, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is hard to calculate".

He made a decisive vote previous year that killed Republican attempts to repeal Barack Obama's health care reforms, and Trump never forgave him.

McCain "was a man of deep conviction and a patriot of the highest order", said Republican George W. Bush (2001-2009). And for that, we are all in his debt.

"One aspect of the conflict, by the way, that I will never countenance is that we drafted the lowest-income level of America, and the highest-income level found a doctor that would say that they had a bone spur", he said. "He put country before self", Ryan said.

"Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford: "My deepest sympathies go out to the McCain family at this time".

McCain's presidential running mate, Sarah Palin: "Today we lost an American original. And I've lost one of my dearest friends and mentor".

Chuck Schumer, a top Senate Democrat, said he would seek to rename a Senate building in his honour.

This comes just one day after McCain chose to stop his brain cancer treatment. He had spent more than three decades in the Senate, looming large in debates over war and peace and the moral direction of the nation.
