Will we let John McCain start World War Three?

Covering up any real public attempt to answer the question John McCain's suitability for the office of president is the incessant blather that he was a prisoner of war and therefore a hero.

Getting shot down on a mission may be nothing more than an indication that he is a bad pilot, and the additional evidence of his numerous other lost aircraft would seem to support that finding. We know that McCain was passed over for promotion to the rank of Admiral and left the Navy as the first failure in his military lineage, so we know that even if he could explain away such things as flying a Navy jet into the marsh on his way to the Army Navy football game, McCain cannot explain away the fact that his judgement on military matters has been a dismal failure and costly in money and devastating in the cost of lives for our Military.

Even before George W. Bush began the beat of his war drum, John McCain was already calling for the invasion of the sovereign nation of Iraq!

...the emotion of Sept. 11 overwhelmed his former cool-eyed caution about deploying American troops without a clear national interest and a well-defined exit, turning him into a tool of the Bush administration in its push for a war...


John McCain called for the first target in the war against Al Queda and retribution for 9-11 to be Iraq. As we knew then, Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11. As we know now, Iraq had absolutely ZERO Weapons of Mass Destruction. As we should all know then and now, John McCain has exactly No Rational Judgement on these matters...He simply wants war.

McCain has been nearly as great a failure as George W. Bush in his life, his military career, and his judgement. Other "heroes" who survived the same POW camp have gone public and stated that McCain is not fit for the presidency. They do not want his vicious temper, so ready to strike out at anything and anyone when he is angered, to be anywhere near the trigger for war...Especially nuclear war.

In the aftermath of the dismal failure of his beloved Iraq war, we have to ask whether McCain has learned anything? Apparently not as his saber rattling for a war in Iran so obviously indicates:

The Sept. 11 attacks “demonstrated the grave threat posed by a hostile regime, possessing weapons of mass destruction, and with reported ties to terrorists,” Mr. McCain wrote in an e-mail message on Friday. Given Mr. Hussein’s history of pursuing illegal weapons and his avowed hostility to the United States, “his regime posed a threat we had to take seriously.” The attacks were still a reminder, Mr. McCain added, of the importance of international action “to prevent outlaw states — like Iran today — from developing weapons of mass destruction.”


So has McCain learned anything from the tragedies caused by his championing Ahmed Chalabi and the mishandling of the Iraq war? Thousands of our troops died, remember. Well, no! His immediate call, when Russia rolled into the Republic of Georgia, was for Georgia to immediately be inducted into NATO. This was a stupid call on McCain's part. If Europe had been so stupid as to heed McCain's call, we would be facing off with Russia in what could easily become World War Three.

John McCain is a warmonger who, having failed in Vietnam, failed in Iraq, failed in Afghanistan, failed in Pakistan, is looking for a war he can win. What in the name of all that is peaceful and good does he think he will accomplish by picking a fight with the one other super military power in the whole freaking world with the capability and the will to decimate America? Of course it will decimate Russia as well, but who the hell wins in this kind of confrontation?

McCain has nothing in the way of temperament or international diplomacy skill that can guide America through the treacherous world climate that he himself was so instrumental in creating. He is that proverbial man, who has only a hammer in his tool box and therefore sees all the world and its complex problems as a nail. Given his track record of being exactly wrong on every single international issue, he cannot be allowed to take his little hammer out into a world that has the capability of hitting back with disastrous results.

Democrats must make the case that is so obvious...John McCain is unfit to lead America into anything except World War III.



Peace,

    His thefts, lies, plagiarisms, dramatically inflated war record....
    The facts about McLame are face value. He doesn't even know how many houses he has, nor was he even slick enough to just say something like "I leave that stuff to my wife". He actually said, "I don't know".
    LOL, sounds like a Republican. "I don't recall".

    He's senile and belligerent. Not qualities the majority of Americans want to deal with for four more years.
    He needs to back out of the race and needs to be sitting at the end of the bar putting quarters in the electronic poker machine is.

  2. BE AFRAID OF PRESIDENT JOHN MCCAIN - THE FRIGHTENING MIND OF A SADISTIC WARMONGER WHO WOULD START WORLD WAR III

    According to former Democratic Phoenix AZ Mayor Paul Johnson who knew John McCain personally: "JOHN MCCAIN’S VOLATILITY BORDERS IN THE AREA OF BEING UNSTABLE. BEFORE I LET THIS GUY PUT HIS FINGER ON THE NUCLEAR BUTTON AS U.S. PRESIDENT, I WOULD HAVE TO GIVE CONSIDERABLE PAUSE.”

    According to former U.S. Congressman John LeBoutillier (R-NY): “I THINK SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN IS MENTALLY UNSTABLE AND NOT FIT TO BE PRESIDENT."

    SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN WAS THE U.S. NAVY’S WORST PILOT AND WORST STUDENT AT ANNAPOLIS

    EVERYTHING WE HAVE EVER HEARD ABOUT SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN BEING A HERO IS A COMPLETE LIE. JOHN MCCAIN IS A LYING WEASEL WHO HAS NEVER ACCOMPLISHED ANYTHING ON HIS OWN IN HIS ENTIRE LIFE.

    Despite graduating in the bottom 1% of his Annapolis class, John McCain was offered the most sought-after Navy assignment -- to become an aircraft carrier pilot. The most accomplished midshipmen compete furiously for the few carrier pilot openings. After four abysmal academic years at Annapolis distinguished only by his misdeeds and malfeasance...no one with a record resembling McCain's would have been offered such a prized career path – except a 4-star U.S. Navy Admiral’s son!

    So McCain was made a pilot because his father was a 4-star U.S. Navy admiral. That's the stuff of legend. And McCain was such a bad pilot he crashed 5 fighter planes because of his poor pilot skills. Then the Navy made sure he was never in the newest planes, forcing him to fly outdated fighters so his mistakes were less costly. McCain was never in a fighting squadron. "He was thus on the outer end of the flying totem pole."

    John McCain, the below par Navy pilot, lost U.S. 5 military aircraft, the first during a training flight in 1958 when he plunged into Corpus Christi Bay while trying to land. The Navy ignored the crash and graduated McCain in 1960.

    While deployed in the Mediterranean, the hard partying drinking John McCain lost a second aircraft "Flying too low over the Iberian Peninsula, he took out some power lines which led to a spate of newspaper stories in which he was predictably identified as the son of an admiral..."

    Flight instructor John McCain lost a third aircraft while flying a Navy trainer solo to Philadelphia for an Army-Navy football game. McCain radioed, "I've got a flameout" before ejecting at one thousand feet. McCain parachuted onto a beach moments before his plane slammed into a clump of trees.

    The Navy dismissed the crash as "unavoidable" and assigned McCain to the aircraft carrier USS Forrestal in December 1966, which was patrolling the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean. In Spring 1967, the U.S.S Forrestal was assigned to join the Operation Rolling Thunder bombing campaign against North Vietnam.

    McCain lost his fourth plane on board the Forrestal on July 29, 1967 when a rocket inadvertently slammed into his bomb laden jet. McCain escaped, but the explosions that followed killed 134 sailors. McCain was transferred from the badly damaged U.S.S Forrestal to the USS Oriskany. Shortly afterwards, on Oct. 26, 1967, he was shot down and captured by the Vietnamese.

    At best, this sucker is a jinx!

    In the course of this campaign he has ouright admitted to lacking knowledge in some rather notable areas such as economics, use of computers, the internet, etc ... and his own military record is actually quite lackluster beyond his crowning achievment of being taken prisoner.

    At all cost, he must be kept away from any position of executive capacity.
