I don't know about you but the heavy emphasis on the colors of black, red and yellow, which country did that put you in mind of? Did you have an inexplicable urge to invade Poland? Was it only missing a little Wagnerian music?
On the Vietnam war, which the video linked to, McCain said that "I would say [it was a] noble cause," he said. "I still believe that. But do I believe it was winnable? I am not sure."
Now he wants to have an occupying force in Iraq for "a hundred" or "ten thousand years", if necessary, even if it presumably may not be in a cause any more winnable than Vietnam was. Is he living in a fantasy world despite the nine trips he has made to Iraq. Is he utterly oblivious to the mess we are in?I s John McCain an unreconstructed neocon war hawk who has a cavalier attitude with the facts and demonizes anyone who disagrees with him?
Joshua Cohen of Boston University and Brink Lindsay of the Cato Institute discuss these points along with other subjects, in a very listenable bloggingheads tv dialogue, Has anything surged besides McCain's candidacy? and come to a surprising similar conclusion.
