McCain REALLY Wants to Be President

From Time:

This September, Senator John McCain's youngest son, Jimmy, 18, will report to a U.S. Marine Corps depot near Camp Pendleton in San Diego. After three months of boot camp and a month of specialized training, he will be ready to deploy. Depending on the unit he joins, he could be in Iraq as early as this time next year, and his chances of seeing combat at some point are high. Of the 178,000 active-duty Marines in the world, some 80,000 have seen a tour in Iraq or Afghanistan, and 25,000 are now bearing the brunt of some of the worst fighting in Iraq. About 6,000 Marines have been wounded there, and about 650 have been killed. "I'm obviously very proud of my son," says the elder McCain, "but also understandably a little nervous."

I swear, with Republicans if they aren't flinging bombs at babies, they are flinging babies at bombs!

  4. Let me ask you guys one question, lets say, there is a terriost group in Mexico and they are lobbing missles into say New Mexico at your family, wht do you think the answer would be, call a truce so they could lob them at you on another day or just go in and wipe their ass off the face of the earth.

    Now give me one good reason why Israel should give them another chance to kill more of their citizens....LJ you are nothing but a no talent liberal ass monkey if you think a truce will stop the missle from flying into Israel,

  5. Hello, olerockytop.

    You make one huge assumption: that they will wipe them off the face of the earth. By carpetbombing Lebanon's infrastructure and killing more civilians, we have united the rest of Lebanon and the rest of the Arab world against Israel. Ordinary Lebanese (including Christians and Druze) now support Hezbollah. What (neo)conservatives fail to understand is that fighting back in such a disproportionate way adds fuel to Hezbollah's fire.

    And I will refrain from responding to your insult with another.

    "carpetbombing Lebanon's infrastructure and killing more civilians," LT what about the civilians that Hezbollah is killing, why do we not talk about that, are you afaird Hezbollah may come after you..

  7. Hezbollah's killing is wrong. That goes without question. That a) doesn't mean Israel should respond in kind, and b) the invasion has only strengthened Hezbollah. Today, Hezbollah launched the most missiles since the beginning of the campaign.

    Hezbollah is a friggen terriost org. They need to be wiped out plain and simple, no second chances, to bad George did not give Israel about 5 or 6 of the MOAB's it would have been over with, now if you want to continue supporting the terriost your choice, like I said before you are a NO TALENT LIBERAL ASS MONKEY

  9. Let us not forget also that the people of Lebanon do not want this nor have they done anything to deserve it. Also Israel is twice the size of Lebanon, with twice the people and a very strong military with very sophisticated weaponry thanks to US largely. Hezbollah is a big bad gang of thugs, but let me tell you that if in this situation all of the Crips and Bloods in the country united in, lets say, California and started lobbing bombs at Nevada (just for the sake of argument here) our military would not be justified in carpet bombing California. The staggering loss of civilian life would be CONSIDERED, and we would instead go in surgically and get them. Yes innocent lives would still be in danger, but not just forsaken as is the case in Lebanon today.

    That is about the lamest fucking argument that anyone could come up with, of course not, dumb ass we are not talking about civil strif within a country, we are talking about a supported terriost Org. within a country attacking another country...you fucking get it?....Lets not foget who started this show, wasn't Israel, it was a terriost Org supported by Lebanon...We all know these cut-throats hide behind the civilian population...use them as shields....to protect their cowardly asses....carpet bomb California, what a fucking joke, only goes to prove my point Liberalism is a fucking Mental disorder that can never be cured
