The latest on the McCain shootdown

You might have missed this:
A retired Red Army Lieutenant has confessed to downing the plane of defeated US presidential candidate, John McCain, in the Vietnam War.

Trushechkin, in a St. Petersburg hospital, said he still hated John McCain and he was very happy that McCain did not make it to the White House.

"He always hated the Russians. He knew that it was our rocket that downed his plane," he said.

The veteran says he was 28 years old when he went to join Soviet forces in Vietnam, where they fought against the US together with local soldiers.

Yuriy Trushechkin said that McCain got lucky because ejected US pilots were usually beaten to death with pickaxes.
