The warhawks are rallying yet again, this time in an effort to provoke a war with Iran. One that will likely benefit both corporate interests and the Republican Party, which knows nothing stirs up patriotic fervor like a war that coincides with a national election.
This week, Bush administration officials rattled their sabers in response to Iran's test firing of several long- and medium-range missiles.
Gee, I wonder why Iran would feel the need to defend itself from potential American aggression?
The worst part is how the assembled media laughed at McCain's horrendous statement.
Here's a candidate who has a good chance of becoming the next president of the United States, and he jokes about bombing Iran and killing Iranians. He's a staunch warhawk who also believes that preemptive war is a sound and reasonable policy. Additionally, he happily envisions occupying Iraq for at least a century.
Is it any wonder that the Iranians fear for their lives and their nation?
