Just under Sen. John McCain’s 2010 tweet congratulating George W. Bush, not President Obama, for the last combat troops leaving Iraq, a link from today reads, Iraq crisis: ISIS battles for Baghdad.” In that link it says, “Group claims mass killings of Iraqi troops, as militants battle security forces 50 miles from Baghdad.”

McCain wants boots on the ground. He wants us to go to back into war, and it’s rather telling of his personality, and also because he was defeated by Obama, that he’s now blaming this president for the previous administration’s actions. Republicans are chomping at the bit for another bloody war.


U.S. troops were withdrawn because our military was no longer welcome there. We had already liberated that country to death. 
In 20011, former Iraqi Prime Minister Ayad Allawi, a pro-American politician, said  he refused to endorse a U.S. troop extension and instead indicated that they should leave.

He said, “We have serious security problems in this country and serious political problems. Keeping Americans in Iraq longer isn’t the answer to the problems of Iraq. It may be an answer to the problems of the U.S., but it’s definitely not the solution to the problems of my country.”

So, if Bush is given credit for 2010, then he certainly deserves credit for 2014.

This isn’t a game.

      I bet she cringes even more when he walks IN the door.

        You’ve got it.

        Well played.

      Um no – Cindy Lou does just fine here in the Valley of the Sun when he is gone. It’s a well known “secret” that she was terrified he might actually WIN in 2008 because she refused to move to DC. Palin was literally the reason Cindy Lou got to stay in Phoenix – she has hated DC since Nancy Reagan was nasty to her.
      And don’t forget that Johnny McInsane called her (Cindy) a “c_nt” in front of reporters.
      We have all wondered how her wrist got broken during the campaign.

    Perhaps after 4 major surgeries for malignant melanoma, it has finally metastasized into his brain? It was a BIG concern – especially after he picked Palin!

    ‘This is not a game.’
    Sure it is!
    “How long does it take to make Americans to support another Endless Occupational Invasion to ‘LIBERATE’ Iraq’s selected despot, AGAIN”.
    Funny, that in the quickly formed Charlie Rose round table sit down how Richard, Michael and Dexter were in such a hurry to knock a hole of equal size on the other side of the Titanic to let the water flow through so it wouldn’t sink, that in their assessment of willing to share the blame EQUALLY (POTUS Bush, POTUS Obama and DESPOT Maliki) in order to keep American Troops as the bulls eye on the Corporate Target Range, the security for the entire world (eventually) is threatened unless we (USA) jump back in with both feet fully committed to allowing Despot Maliki to Command US Forces, no questions asked!
    If nothing else, even though the entire mid-east (noted several times by name) – Iraq, Iran, Syria, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and even Afghanistan (if we can’t leave enough US Troops in country to make POTUS Obama a liar), the security of Israel and Palestine are helped by the current uprising against Despot Maliki – you’d have thought they would have AT LEAST mentioned it ONCE, if it wasn’t?

      Very well said!

    Thank God that John McCain is not our President American would be in trouble

    • BanditBasheert June 15th, 2014 at 12:07 pm

      IF John McCain had won the election, he would have already died in a mysterious way and Palin would have succeeded him. We would be at war with Queen Elizabeth.
