All Hail Crooks & Liars!...
This video is a must-see for all those people you know who still consider John McCain worthy of the presidency.
Crooks & Liars, my favorite source for political and media-related issues, has been doing some great shit, like this post, on John McCain lately. In it, they expose McCain's nonsensical Iraq policy, or lack thereof. I would be amazed by the kid gloves with which McCain is treated in terms of Iraq (not to mention the unending, unchallenged claims that "National Security is John McCain's strength.") if I weren't so accustomed to the fact that our media fucking blows.
If McCain truly believes that we should only leave Iraq when we've either succeeded in establishing “a peaceful, stable, prosperous, democratic state” OR when we conclude that the mission in Iraq is unachievable, I ask:
What are the criteria by which we will know the mission is unachievable? How long are you willing to go before you decide?
I feel that this is something that can and must be quantified. In my mind, you can't just be in a constant state of winning. Eventually, you either win or you lose. I still believe we lost the second we invaded that country. Would someone in the media PLEASE ask him! I beg you.
