John McCain has been wrong on social justice, on business regulations, and on tax breaks for Big Oil. But probably the most egregious error has been on foreign policy, on military action, and most specifically on Iraq. It could be more tolerable if McCain had not taken his eye off the prize – the capture or death of Bin Laden.
John McCain was a big supporter of the Iraq War – a war with a country that had nothing to do with knocking down buildings in New York. But McCain perpetrated the lie. McCain supported the conflict. McCain said the war would not be difficult. McCain said we would find massive amounts of Weapons of Mass Destruction. McCain said America would be welcomed as liberators. McCain said the Iraqi people were not divided into violent factions. McCain said that Iraqi oil would pay for the war. McCain said that Iraqi oil money would be used to rebuild the country.
What we have is over 4,000 of America’s best citizens killed in the line of duty, no weapons of mass destruction, 10 – 12 Billion dollars a month to a country that has 80 Billion in the Bank, a strengthened and emboldened Al Quaeda, turmoil in Afghanistan, turmoil in Pakistan, and a deep sense of anger toward a brash and arrogant America by the foreign populations.
AND WE HAVE NOT CAPTURED THE PEOPLE WHO ATTACKED AMERICA!
Here is the terrorist’s picture again – in case McCain or others have forgotten what the military mission was.
