I’ve listened to him when he was on the campaign trail and post election etc. His actions and replies to many questions on issues are non sequitur. He seems confused which for a man in his position is somewhat scary. Of course G.W. Bush and Dick Cheney are of the same party, but seemingly Senator McCain has a selective memory to the fact that these two guys were responsible for an unnecessary attack on Iraq based on cooked intel. Once in office the average citizen has no power to hold those in high office accountable, but House Members and Senator McCain while sitting on an impeachment proceeding have the power to do so. Notice that no one has been brought to accounts concerning this deadly duplicity at high levels of government, but John sees that it’s alright to attack a sovereign naton while engaged in a civil war/unrest and when the leader for better or worse tries to quash unrest is tagged as a “war criminal”. It’s not only ludicrous, but bordering on the actions of an unbalanced or worse a cunning, ever-scheming mind. John is for attacking Iran too? Seemingly he’s degenerated to the level of a mad dog biting at its tail. If the Chinese people start a massive uprising and the PRC’s military starts mowing them down is John and his other corrupt brethren in Congress going to shout for us to intervene within Chinese domestic affairs and to try the Chinese leadership for ‘war crimes’. I think not! When people like McCain et al.. speak in such a manner it just indemnifies their duplicity and incompetence. Carl Nemo **== War crimes? Okay Johnny. It’s only a war crime when some one else does it. When we do it we call it “liberation” or “defending democracy” or “Homeland Security”. It looks to me like Gaddafi is engaged in a little homeland security of his own. Which is none of our business. Comments are closed.
