BARACK OBAMA IS SOOOO NAIVE

Filed under: BARACK OBAMA, Bush, hillary clinton, John McCain, life, mideast, news, politics, war — gasdocpol @ 7:15 pm

THAT HE DISAGREED WITH JOHN McCAIN AND GEORGE W. BUSH WHEN HE SAID THE FOLLOWING IN 2002:

1. Saddam poses no imminent and direct threat to the United States, or to his neighbors

2. The Iraqi economy is in shambles,

3. The Iraqi military a fraction of its former strength, and that in concert with the international community he can be contained.

4. Even a successful war against Iraq will require a US occupation of undetermined length, at undetermined cost, with undetermined consequences.

5. An invasion of Iraq without a clear rationale and without strong international support will only fan the flames of the Middle East, and encourage the worst, rather than best, impulses of the Arab world, and strengthen the recruitment arm of al-Qaeda.

6. I am not opposed to all wars. I’m opposed to dumb wars.

AN IRAQ WAR WOULD BE A DUMB WAR.

APPARENTLY JOHN McCAIN DID NOT LEARN ABOUT HOW TO RECOGNISE A DUMB WAR DURING HIS STUDIES AT THE NAVAL ACADEMY.

WHY DOES IT NOT SURPRISE ME THAT HE WAS 894 IN A CLASS OF 899?

  1. What you think of your man backing the warrantless spy bill after all the liberals were against it! I can remember all that was said of President Bush about the spy bill…does all those comment apply to Obama now?

  2. Make sure that no McCain supporters Google: “Opiate for the Mrs”
    or “The wife U. S. Republican John McCain callously left behind”

    They may not remain McCain supporters.

  3. Iraq was a smart war, that was poorly executed, but is going to turn out to be as positive a turning point in western civilization as the Magna Carta. The establishment of a freely elected government in a region and among a culture that has never seen one is pretty significant. The war in Iraq in 1991-2008 looks a great deal like an extension of the Arab Rebellion of 1912 with a far better result. Those who condemn the war in Iraq without reference at least to the history of the last couple os centuries is selling their analysis short. Those who judge whether or not wars are good or bad or smart or dumb without at least the perspective of years, clearly slept through history class.

    The great thing about Obama is that no matter which side of an issue you’re on, Obama has a position that supports yours.

  4. Nice post! Obama is ‘soooo’ naive. Yet in his naievity he is smartter than and shows better judgement than McCain. McCain may be a hero but that doesn’t qualify him to be President. He seems to want to be President just because it is a ‘goal’ or something. He doesn’t seem to have America’s interest at heart otherwise he’d know it’s time to ‘fold them’. He doesn’t seem lucid half the time and that’s very scary. And he has no diplomacy skils, none. He knows nothing about the economy. He just seems stuck on war — that’s his platform. More war, war war. Crazy. What were the republicans thinking when they nominated him?

    I even question McCain’s war hero status. His 23 combat missions were relatively few and undistinguished and ordinarily would not qualify him as a war hero. At best, his 5 1/2 years as a POW qualify him as a survivor not a war hero. We only have McCain’s version of what happened. He has blocked access to North Vietnamese records of his internment. We know for certain that he cooperated with his captor’s SOME but it may have been A LOT. He may well have enjoyed the company of prostitutes when we was pretended to b e in solitary confinement. He appartently lost several US Navy planes and almost sunk the USS Forestal and killed 168 sailors resulting from his juvenile hot dog capers.

    As a result of what you call a smart war, we have the following results:

    1. Iraq which previously acted a a buffer to Iran now no longer serves that function and now the war mongers have an excuse to attack Iran.

    2. Over 4100 Amaerican soldiers have lost their lives, At least 13000 are maimed for life.

    3. It will drain the US Treasure of at least 3 trillion dollars. (One trillion is a stack of $1000 bills extending 42 milles into space.)

    4. It distracted us from Afganistan which is now going badly and has tied up our troops and run down our equipment.

    5. The USA has lost credibility, respect and good will internationally.

    6. It has created a mess for which there are no good solutions only less bad ones.

    And that is just off the top of my head.

    History? How about the decline and fall of the Roman Empire and Emperors like Nero and Caligula? GW Bush and McCain got to where they are now by heredity too.

    A. My room mate at Columbia who got a PhD in History there, was fond of saying that “History is a pack of lies that everyone agrees to”.

    B. Even GW Bush says that history will revindicate him. My guess is that he will be condemned even more.

  6. Very deep and interesting! Wow!!!

  7. Paulette,

    I really do not see how McCain has gotten to be a ‘war hero” . The Fact that his father and grandfather were 4 star admirals might have had something to do with it. In order to get away with all those fights in high school and his misbehaving as a Midshipman and a fly boy he no doubt got good at BS.

    In any case, even if, indeed, he were an authentic war hero, that would not necessarily qualify him to be President.

  8. Gas Doc — I agree. Being a hero does not make a President.

    I find your posts to be very clear and educational.. Thank you.
