AP points out John McCain's detachment from reality

Posted by: Hammer / 9:16 AM

The AP on John McCain's worst fear in Iraq:

"By the way, a lot of us are also very concerned about the possibility of a, quote, 'Tet Offensive.' You know, some large-scale tact that could then switch American public opinion the way that the Tet Offensive did," the Arizona senator said.

Last month, an Associated Press-Ipsos poll found that 62 percent said the United States made a mistake in going to war in Iraq.

Senator McCain, the majority of the American turned against your war a long time ago. McCain goes on to discuss Iran:

"It is in my opinion that it is not whether they are developing nuclear weapons but when, and there is where opinion varies. Some say as short a time as two years, others as many as 10," McCain said.

Assuming McCain is right on this point, don't we have a duty to do something? And what is that something? As near as I can tell, we're going to spend tens of thousands of American lives and limbs in Iraq with no clear result yet. On the other hand, the Bush administration has negotiated a potential disarmament deal with North Korea. I'm not a foreign policy guru by any means, but I do watch Dr. Phil from time to time. Relevant past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior, Phil likes to say. Relevant past behavior here indicates a rush to war with Iran. Since the mushy, soft, negotiations route seems to have produced better results than short-sighted bellicosity, perhaps the Senator from Arizona would like to endorse diplomacy with Iran now?
