JOHN McCAIN’ S UNDERSTANDING OF THE IRAQ WAR IN 2002 WAS DIFFERENT FROM THAT OF OBAMA

WE SHOULD COMPARE WHAT THEY HAVE SAID

JOHN McCAIN SAID:

“Because I know that as successful as I believe we will be, and I believe that the success will be fairly easy, we will still lose some American young men or women.” [CNN, 9/24/02]

“We’re not going to get into house-to-house fighting in Baghdad. We may have to take out buildings, but we’re not going to have a bloodletting of trading American bodies for Iraqi bodies.” [CNN, 9/29/02]

“But the point is that, one, we will win this conflict. We will win it easily.” [MSNBC, 1/22/03]

BARACK OBAMA SAID: in Oct 2002

But I also know that Saddam poses no imminent and direct threat to the United States, or to his neighbors, that the Iraqi economy is in shambles, that the Iraqi military a fraction of its former strength, and that in concert with the international community he can be contained until, in the way of all petty dictators, he falls away into the dustbin of history.

I know that even a successful war against Iraq will require a US occupation of undetermined length, at undetermined cost, with undetermined consequences. I know that 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.

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

MY QUESTION IS “HAS McCAIN UNDERSTOOD THINGS ANY BETTER IN ADULTHOOD THAN WHEN HE WAS 5TH FROM THE BOTTOM OF HIS CLASS AT THE NAVAL ACADEMY?”

  1. There are GOOD NEWS for you:John McCain never passed the Naval Academy.Due to the connections of his father
    he could NEVER fail.
    Incidentally,I really don’t why people in the USA are so reluctant to accept John McCain the way he is his as of today.In reality he is a PRIVILEGED “WAR HERO”,LIAR,COLLOBORATOR and TRAITOR.Due to his collo-
    boration with the North Vietnamese numerous young US-
    soldiers lost their lives during the Vietnam ordeal.
    John McCain spent most of his captivity in the Hanoi Hilton instead of a cell.It’s amazing how the US-legis
    lation works :John McCain never faced a Navy Tribunal,
    instead he has the guts to run for the highest OFFICE.

  2. At best, McCain’s service in Vietnam was honorable and commendable. His war hero status is debateable if it is based solely on 23 combat missions and survivor as a POW.

    At worst, McCain’s recklessness or incompetence cause him to lose his 5th US warplane when he was shot down. He collaborated with the North Vietnamese resulting in other US fliers being shot down while McCain was being serviced by prostitutes.

    Even if he were Rambo, Audie Murphy, George Patton, Pappy Boyington and Eddie Rickenbacker all rolled into one, McCain would be a disaster as President because he is a superstitious compulsive gambler with an anger management problem.
