Bloody John

Since he entered Congress, has John McCain ever not been in favor of American military intervention any time it has been proposed anywhere in the world?

I'm not just being rhetorical. I'm seriously trying to find a scenario where McCain would not be in favor of the U.S. going into a situation with guns blazing. Does anyone have a single example of an American military intervention that he opposed?

He has jumped on board with every military adventure in recent years (even stuff that other members of his party were leery of, like Kosovo, Libya, and Syria). And whenever a president does not want to consider military force, McCain gets on the teevee and demands that that president start killing foreigners to avoid making some terrible mistake. The dude seems to think that the answer to every foreign policy question is to kill someone. Can anyone think of a counter-example?
