    Assuming that he's elected that is. McCain has made some tough statements in regards to Iran; what are your thoughts?

    In his way of thinking, Muslims helping other Muslims fight off what they view as occupation = radical Islam = terrorism = somewhere to direct War on Terror

    so yeah, I could see a war with Iran in the future...or at the very least, some strategic bombings.

    as George Carlin so appropriately put our penchant for bombing:

    "...especially if your country is full of brown people. Oh yeah, we like that! That's our hobby...bombing brown people! If you're a country and you've got some brown people, tell them to 'Watch the **** out, or we'll ***damn bomb them!"

    Yes he does seem like another bush like B******D hell bent on war. There is no hope for your country if he comes into power.

    i dont see why not. he thinks our military force exists to make sure everyone in the world is doing things the way we like it.
    i'm not sure he cares that iran stopped the nuke program and doesnt have much of a military.
    here's how its going to go down

    Mccain says "iran has nukes"
    congress says "yeah right"
    mccain says "we must attack to protect ourselves"
    dixie chicks say "come on now"
    texans say "anyone who is against this war in unpatriotic. it is america's duty to invade whenever our president feels like it because he is our supreme ruler and has ultimate wisdom."

    Sorry to break it to you, but electing idiots is not an exclusively American affliction.

    LOL, I love the fact that after I read this thread the ad banner at the top was one for John McCain for President. It reminded me I haven't installed adblocker on my new computer... Thx...

    I definitely think McCain would get us into a war with Iran, he seems to share the same mentality as Bush on this.

    Cheney has sold his soul to the devil(s) for this one last chance. I am not primarily speaking about corporate sponsorship (although he has some serious IOUs there too). I am mainly talking about the various republican, and neo-con factions within the party.

    McCain once enjoyed a reputation as a maverick of sorts. He took positions that bounced around on the political spectrum. But, that was eight years ago. The current version of McCain has said his 'acts of contrition'. He toed the line for everyone who could aid his cause. Even those issues, he was so passionate about, have been denounced by him.

    if under the the slimmest of possibilities, he was able to win the whitehouse, this guy is going to be nothing more than an order taker. He owes much to the Israeli lobby, and they definitely want the US in Iran. So, I think he will lobby hard for it. But, congress and the American people are not the same docile, uninformed, fear-driven sheep of 2003. He will meet serious resistance.

    Only if they have an (R) after their names. If it's a (D), then they're the unpatriotic ones sending our brave men and women off to die for an unjust cause. Clinton had to be destroyed remember.

    Bush pretends to be from Texas.

    Similar to McCain's, but less vocal about it while she's bombing Iran.

    (I hope I'm kidding)

    I think this video sums up everything that inspires me about the McCain candidacy. It uses the words of his speeches and sets them to music. I sware, by the end I was crying.

    Thank you, skunk. :D

    The trait that drives a person to enter politics is the same trait that renders one ultimately unworthy to serve.

    When has J. McCain, or any other Republican politician, for that matter, said anything of the sort?

    This was probably one of the best moments of the Bush administration, post 9/11. But there's this little issue of follow-through. To be believed, you have to do more than say it.
