Cardinals, Arizona teams honor Sen. John McCain

Read			John McCain War Hero and

Senator John McCain, the Vietnam veteran turned senator and presidential candidate, has died at the age of 81. McCain was a Captain in the U.S. Navy and saw active service during the Vietnam War, where he was held as a prisoner of war from October 1967 to March 1973, and was routinely tortured.

"I've known great passions, seen unbelievable wonders, fought in a war and helped make peace".

McCain is expected to be remembered at ceremonies in Arizona and Washington this coming week or next, if the family prefers to give more time for Congress to return to the Capitol from its summer recess.

Mr McCain's office said he died on Saturday following his battle with brain cancer. "On behalf of the people of Taiwan, thank you". Local residents brought flowers to honor the late politician.

In July 2017, McCain was diagnosed with a tumour called a glioblastoma, which is an aggressive type of brain cancer but returned to the Senate after his diagnosis and cast a pivotal vote against a Republican bill to undo the Affordable Care Act - Obamacare.

Liverpool vs. Brighton & Hove Albion - Football Match Report
Simply put, it's all going well for Liverpool at the moment and there's a real sense that this could be their season. We didn't show the same patience and it was a more open game and there was absolutely no need for that.

Tsai said in a tweet on August 26 "I'll remember John McCain as a friend & a fighter".

A rare Republican critic of Trump, McCain accused the president of "naivete", "egotism" and of sympathizing with autocrats.

All living former U.S. presidents lined up to praise McCain for his deep integrity. After gambling on political neophyte Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate, McCain lost in 2008 to Democrat Barack Obama, who became the first black US president.

"Today we lost an American original. Sen".

"John McCain was a man of deep conviction and a patriot of the highest order".

The late senator "was a man of honor, a true patriot in the best sense of the word", wrote Democrat Jimmy Carter (1977-1981). "Americans will be forever grateful for his heroic military service and for his steadfast integrity as a member of the United States Senate...."

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.

Nancy Pelosi, the Minority Leader of the U.S. House of Representatives also mourned McCain: "He was a patriotic, courageous hero who served his country above all".

Following a brain cancer diagnosis previous year, he had been absent from Washington since last December but remained vocal during that time, heavily criticising President Donald Trump and urging defence of of the post-war liberal democratic order.

Former presidents, including those who blocked McCain's own White House ambitions, offered emotional tributes.

Elon Musk says cutting back on work hours isn't an option
Musk stated that his past year had been the "most hard and painful year of his career" and he almost missed his brother's wedding. It's a sum that would help the 11-year old company start production of its first auto , the Air , before the end of the 2019.

In September a year ago, Cayetano recalled his meeting with McCain at the Capitol Hill where they discussed the challenges confronting Manila and Washington, and how the partnership can be further strengthened to address nontraditional security concerns, such as drug trafficking and violent extremism.
