That's the title of a must-read analysis by a guy named Doug Bandow, over at Anti-War.com. Here's an excerpt:
Sen. John McCain is a man of physical courage and personal honor. He's also a warmonger, with little concern for those who would die in his military adventures. The Democrats won't say that. But it's the truth.There's a lot more -- check it out.
. . .
Anyone willing to go to war with Iraq, Iran, North Korea, and Serbia is prepared to fight anyone. Most people lean toward peace and believe that only dangerous necessity can justify loosing the dogs of war. Not McCain, who appears to be in permanent "yes" mode. If that famous 3 a.m. phone call came into the McCain White House, he likely would yell "bomb them" into the receiver, then wait until the morning to ask who we had attacked.
And this Bandow guy? He's gotta be some compsymp radical-islamofascist-enabling liberal, right?
Nope, not quite. He is, among other things, a Robert A. Taft Fellow with the American Conservative Defense Alliance who served as a special assistant to St Ronald Reagan and was a senior policy analyst in the 1980 Reagan for President campaign. I'd say that his conservative credentials are pretty impeccable.
So take that, Grampaw McCain. Everyone else, dig down, buckle up and prepare yourselves for the coming battle between The Empire and the Jedi Knights.
