McCain Has Tough Words for Democrats on Iraq, Environment


Framed by a painting of the Iwo Jima flag raising, Republican presidential candidate, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., speaks during a town hall meeting Monday, March 24, 2008, in Chula Vista, Calif. (AP.)

By Juliet Eilperin
CHULA VISTA, Ca. -- In his first public event since returning from overseas, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) told a friendly crowd of older veterans this afternoon he remained committed to staying in Iraq after observing first-hand how U.S. troops were faring there.

Speaking before a 200-person audience at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2111, McCain did not take note of the fact that the U.S. death had just reached 4,000 in Iraq, instead arguing it remained "a central battleground in the battle against al-Qaeda" and that the U.S. should stay there now that the war was succeeding.

"I don't care what anybody says, I've seen it on the ground," said McCain, who just visited Iraq, along with Israel, Jordan, France and England. He added that the occupation will ultimately translate into greater stability in the Middle East. "There's a lot at stake here, my friends, and the benefits of success are phenomenal."

McCain -- who received a hearty round of applause by declaring he would rather lose the presidential campaign than jeopardize the war effort in Iraq -- also took a swipe at Democratic Sens. Barack Obama (Ill.) and Hillary Clinton (N.Y.), saying they were pushing for a hasty withdrawal: "Democrats have time and time again raised the flag of surrender. We've been able to beat that back."

In a press briefing with journalists McCain was even harsher, saying that when it came to the Democrats' position, "I don't know if it's naiveté or what the problem is, but they're dead wrong when they say we should leave Iraq."

When asked why he had not mentioned the fact that the death toll there had reached 4,000, McCain retorted that on "hundreds of occasions" he had paid homage to "the sacrifice great and brave young Americans have made in Iraq and elsewhere in the world in the struggle against radical Islamic extremism."

McCain did not explain how his plan for Iraq would be different from the current strategy President Bush is pursuing, but said, when it came to showing voters how he was different from the president, "I'm offering them a record of having objected strenuously against a failed strategy for four years."

The senator spoke briefly during his talk about the need to revive the economy, without delving into specifics -- "People are hurting now, let's not deny that," he said -- but spent more time explaining why his recent European tour had strengthened his commitment to forcing a new global pact on climate change. In the event that global warming proves dangerous, he argued, the U.S. could not afford to allow greenhouse gas emissions to continue rising.

"Don't we have an obligation to the next generation of young Americans here? I think we do. I think we do," he said, adding that such action would please both our allies and younger Americans. "It's a big issue amongst our friends. It's a big issue among our young people. It should be a big issue for all of us."

McCain, who said he would push to make sure any successor to the Kyoto Protocol "includes China and India," declined to comment on the differences between his and the leading Democratic presidential candidates' plans, saying that he was unfamiliar with their plans because they do not have the same long legislative record he boasts in fighting climate change.

"I don't know what their position is because I haven't seen them show any particular commitment in the U.S. Senate or elsewhere" on climate change, he told reporters. "I have proposed legislation and fought for amendments."

In fact, both Clinton and Obama back an 80 percent reduction in U.S. greenhouse gas emissions compared to 1990 by mid-century. McCain backs a 60 percent cut over that same time period.

McCain squeezed in a town hall meeting in between two fundraisers Monday, one in La Jolla and another in Palm Springs, both of which were closed to the press. He said that while he was "painfully aware" that no Republican had won California since 1988, he was confident he could carry the state.

"I will go everywhere in the state, everywhere," he said, before heading to the San Diego Airport to catch his flight to Palm Springs.

Comments

John McCain's supposed tough talk about how badly the war is being prosecuted consists of a partial complaint that there might be mismanagement, followed by an immediate back pedalling on the subject when he refuses to complain about the President, (he has to make the decision...) or about the White House alternative to DOD (never has criticized a single West Wing Chickenhawk) or about failures to increase the Army to a size appropriate to the wars we are in, (including how to actually meet the current, pitifully small increase of about 15%, to 570,000, which won't be finished until the NEXT Presidential Election after this) or about how to pay for the army, the war, the nation building, or how to cut the massive fraud, waste, abuse, and corruption in contracting in Iraq, Afghanistan, Domestic DOD projects, contracting out military functions, etc, etc, etc,.

Having done such a wonderful job telling us how his administration would be different from George's on Military Matters, he says the Democrats are deficient on the Environment, where he hasn't actually bought in to Global warming, (If CO2 emissions...) but doesn't accept Democratic CO2 emissions reductions, or the Kyoto Protocols.

The most obvious message from the Primaries is that by a substantial majority, Americans want change, ESPECIALLY in Iraq, on health care, and on the economy, and John's whole message is that he is the best man to bring about that change, because there isn't anything about the current administration that is wrong enough to fire somebody over.

His administration will simply give the current set of gross incompetents a chance to shift around the offices they aren't up to administering, and a different boss to protect them while they continue robbing taxpayers blind.

He is just the TOP's sacrificial victim in a presidential election they decided they had lost as early as October, 2006.

Clinton and Obama have no conscience or national honour hence their pyramid of lies which has grown continuously at an exhilarating pace. therefore their flight's of illusions and wildest imaginations will lose them the title of President. leaving McCain a clear winner.

I feel the only way McCain would have a chance to win is to bring someone like Rep. Jeff Flake onto the ticket who wants to cut all those earmarks on the bills which all politicians relish. He should focus on the economy, not a foreign war that the Republicans screwed up on handling correctly.

You would think someone with so much "foreign policy experience" would know the differences between Iran, al-qaeda, shiites and sunnis.

Maybe Lieberman can hold WcCain's hand during his speeches to keep the senility from showing so much.

TOP 5 LIES ABOUT THE IRAQ WAR

1. The Bush Administration predicted the war would cost between $50-60 Billion. However, recent estimates by the Congressional Budget Office say the real cost is between $1-2 Trillion.

2. The Bush Administration used several rationale for invading Iraq - principally, it was to find WMDs that could be used to attack America. However, it is now 5 years later and there are still no WMDs were found.

3. Another rationale for invading Iraq - consistently mentioned by Dick Cheney (and others) was that Iraq was linked [however tenuously] with al-Qaeda and since they attacked us on 9/11 we had to wipe them out. However, 5 years later the Pentagon finally issued a report that went through some 600,000 documents and thousands of hours of interviews with Iraqis and found NO LINK BETWEEN AL-QAEDA AND IRAQ.

4. A favorite expression around the time of the war was that we had to "take the battle to the terrorists" instead of allowing them to attack us at home. However, the war in Iraq has actually served to re-constitute al-Qaeda because the majority of the terrorist network is in Pakistan and Afghanistan. By not capturing and/or killing Osama bin Laden, we have not followed through on pledges by the Bush Administration to strike back for what allegedly happened on 9/11.

5. After we captured Saddam Hussein, the Bush Administration told the world that our mission was now to train the Iraqi troops so they could provide their own domestic security. Years went by and hundreds of billion dollars later, the Iraqis still are not able to provide their own security. Then, a "surge" military strategy was implemented so the Iraqi government would have "breathing room" to make decisions on key legislation that would strengthen the country and allow it to be self-sufficient. However, even with military gains and victories achieved with the introduction of 30,000 more U.S. soldiers, the Iraqi government is no more closer to national reconciliation that they were before the "surge." In short, after "Mission Accomplished" the Bush Administration continues to create new rationale and goals for our presence in Iraq by moving the goalposts further back and obscuring the real reason we are still there.

If McCain is worried about the environment and global warming, then he needs to meet with Hillary and sign an agreement to stop the hot air that rises each time these two speak. In addition, he needs to think about which party he represents. Republicans don't "believe" in global warming. In a few years, when many of them drown in the rising seas, that will be jehovah's way of telling them they were wrong.

Suddenly John McCain has become concerned for the welfare of the youth of America, wanting to make the world a better place for them. Perhaps he would have been better advised to take these heavy concerns when he voted with the Republican leadership that put the American youth in debt to the tune of 10 trillion dollars. A debt that will still exist for generations to come. To be repaid by children still not born.
Perhaps continuing the Bush tax cuts to the rich will repay the borrowed money quickly enough. (Don't hold your breath waiting for that to happen.)

Poor McBush, he can't tell the truth or is too senile to know it. Actually, he wants troops in Iraq for the same reason Bush sent them -- to secure Iraqi oil fields for American oil companies. How much have they given to his campaign? So much for investigative reporting -- news organizations never did tie business contributions to Bush's policies that enriched them ...

No I didnt read the whole artical, why because I already have an oppinion and here it is. Democracy is not what all other contries want. why should we force our beliefs in government, when they see how our country is run and the way we treat other countries. Did the peolpe of Iraq say come get Sadam out of here? Isnt it that the peolpe shpould overthrough the Government if they dont like it. dont get me wrong here,everyone knows Sadam is a Madas and should not have been left in power. so once we killed him off shouldnt the Iraqies have the choice of Government they want? Is it our responsability to force them into a Deocracy? why dont we just let them kill themselves off and then go over and help IF THEY ask for it. L.G.Borne

Harsh words from John McCain deserve some reality for what his continuation of the Bush policies brings to the table.

Bush declares...... "American military sacrificed in Iraq did not die in vain."

Why is it the Iraqi government of Al Maliki has closer ties to Iran, signing one treaty after another with the radical Islamists, than they are with the liberators that are sacrificing their lives for Iraqi freedom?

Not giving their lives defending American interests, not even American security as Bush claims it will eventually secure through their sacrifice. American security will be achieved with the destruction of Al Qaeda, something that will remain as work to do, when the Democrats end the Republican monumental "blunder" that is the "occupation" of Iraq. The Bush "war" is an "occupation" of Iraq, not a war against terrorism.

Not worth one drop of American blood, nor one dime in American money.
A vote for John McCain is a vote for more of the same, another 4 years of carnage and chaos.

Onward to 5000 American dead and appropriate another $140 billion each year. Continue the more than 1 million Iraqi dead and 3 million displaced and refugees.

John McCain is full of crap. Worse yet, he knows it. I don't know how he sleeps at night. For a veteran, I'm ashamed of him and his stance on the war. He knows Bush has ruined his party and, once again, takes the opportunity to act as "the Maverick" and try to revive his party by not admitting what a crappy mess they've gotten our country into. He only cares about being a maverick. He certainly is not representing the 80% of the people (his job is to represent the majority!) with his stubborn stance on the war.

Now that the news stories are out that McCain considered joining Democrats in a couple different ways (joining a Dem. ticket or switching parties), it's not unreasonable that he could win Calif. or N.Y., as he says, especially if a certain someone is crowned as the Dem. nominee.

Did I hear Sen.McCain say the E-word meaning Environment, maybe I should run over to the Republican ballot and sign up for the Green Pastures without using fertilizers. Did he mention Global Farming that has destroyed are waterways in which cancer is grown in the drinker. I am looking for the right person to take Agriculture the # one polluter in America. Yes the winner will get my vote because I cannot set here with a polluted well and watch my Down Syndrome daughter bath in high nitrates and other farm cancer chemicals in which a new batch was sprayed here yesterday. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation is responsible because of there lies to line bufferzones all around the country because of there Agricultural membership in which over the last thirty years water quality only got worse if thats possible. My Congressman here loves to receive farm subsidies for his campain in which he has left us for dead in which Epa lied for him. Here in the Ringtown Valley Schuylkill County is where environmental crimes go unreported because the newsmedia dont want to report how many babies died here because they are receivers of farm subsidies also . Sen. Casey who is against abortion I hope will stop the above. Corruption here because of lawmakers in office to long in Harrisburg while Agriculture gives them farm subsidies also. People who drive south on 339 better wear resperators or get cancer from the daily spraying by one farm family with no love for the environment or there neighbors and have been chased off of rented farms because of the cancer . Left for dead but will never give up , future cancer receipient.

Obama's efforts to connect to the Republican Party, specifically Bush, and Dick Chaney, of the Halliburton Company, dates back to the Presidents Grandfather, Prescott Bush, and indeed Chaney was once an executive officer of Halliburton.

The American military pounds Iraq with Artillary, bombs, and the like, destroying large sections of cities, and infra-structures, then Halliburton comes in to rebuild. Halliburton and Halliburton associated companies have raked in ten's of billions.

Obama is just like the BIG HALIBURTAN. Haliburton has contracted to build detention centers in the U.S. similiar to the one in Quantanammo Bay, Cuba. Halliburton does nothing to earn the Two Dollars for each meal an American Serviceman in Iraq eats.

http://www.halliburtonwatch.org/

Halliburton was scheduled to take control of the Dubai Ports in The United Arab Emiirate. The deal was canceled when Bush was unable to affect the transfer of the American Ports.

Now we see what some might suspect as similiar financial escapading from the Democrats.

Two years ago, Iraq's Ministry of Electricity gave a $50 million contract to a start-up security company - Companion- owned by now-indicted businessman (TONY REZKO) Tony Rezko and a onetime Chicago cop, Daniel T. Frawley, to train Iraqi power-plant guards in the United States. An Iraqi leadership change left the deal in limbo. Now the company, Companion Security, is working to revive its contract.
Involved along with Antoin "Tony" Rezco, long time friend and neighbor of Democratic Presidential hopeful Barack Obama, and former cop Daniel T. Frawley, is Aiham Alsammarae. Alsammarae was accused of financial corruption by Iraqi authorities and jailed in Iraq last year before escaping and returning here.

LIKE FATHER LIKE SON --
Recently, Obama's campaign staff have been vetted by the IRS to disclose his connection to the criminal money generating underworld. Besides, his connections to the REZCO MAFIA types, his up-coming tax fraud charges -- Obama needs to disclose why he is a MUSLIM "PATWANG-FWEEE" and disclose Obama's MUSLIM Farrakhan mob connection to Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ. Its minister, and Obama's spiritual adviser, is the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. In 1982, the church launched Trumpet Newsmagazine; Wright's daughters serve as publisher and executive editor. Every year, the magazine makes awards in various categories. Last year, it gave the Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. Trumpeter Award to a man it said "truly epitomized greatness." That man is Louis Farrakhan. Farrakhan and Chicago's Trinity United Church are trumpeting Barack Obama AKA Barack Hussein Obama as the second coming of the messiah. Obama should stop suppoting our intervention in IRAQ. It's time to introduce this false, fake Xerox - X box Obama and invite the self-indicting thief plagiarizing pipsqueke "GLORK" Xerox - X box to meet the Buffalo "GAZOWNT-GAZIKKA" Police Department Buffalo Creek.

In the second prawn: Obama's speech takes credit for Ashley's dream. A dream of unity Martin Luther King, Jr. borrowed from Ashley for his historic "I Have A Dream" speech. In Obama's speech, the connective bond Ashley, the elderly black man and Obama's grandmother share; represents Obama's self-indicting rise to the Harvard Yard. For Obama, the grand flag of language is the semi-fore of words, bestowed upon our nation by the messiah-alumni from Harvard. Obama's Swoon-Song Apologia to the nation represents a failed hymn -- a hymn that fails to heal the nation, repair the world, or make this time different than all the rest. Obama's speech is a brilliant failure.

Hi people. Please remember their are still four possibilities for president of the United States. I'm glad McCain found a crowd of older vets to talk to. I'm confounded by anyone else listening to him. How is the war suceeding? Has anyone defined sucess? The benifits of success are phenomenal? Anybody ask the citizens there? Is is not sad that McCain has had to pay homage "hundreds of times" for the 4000 deaths and 100 of thousands disabled soldiers our country has sacrificed. Global warming is way down the priorty list as it is not even proven as fact. Hillary, Ombama or McCain are all the same ole same ole, polictics as usualy. Promises and no facts. Dr. Ron Paul is the only voice with the financial expertise, medical background and concrete plans to restore this great Nation. His voice can not do it alone.

John McCain has tough words for the Democrats, but the media never publishes a harsh word about John McCain. Here is why...

Here is the feature line-up of the media
supporting John McCain's bid for president.....

The Washington Post
The New York Times
The Los Angeles Times
The Washington Times
The New York Daily News
The Wall Street Journal
CNN
FOX News
CBS
MSNBC
Just to mention a few!

You might ask, "Why are all these corporate media outlets giving John McCain a big hurrah or a pass on all criticism??"


Because John McCain is in a position to advance Big Media's financial futures. He has hired lobbyists from Big Media and all of them (including the Washington Post) are banking on him winning. That translates into favorable coverage or ignoring his problems. Like the fact that his campaign is being run by lobbyists from Big Media with a direct line to the news desks.

Here is an article to support my claim in case you think this is anything other than serious business- Original from USA Today
www.truthout.org/docs_2006/032408C.shtml


Snip- " McCain is a senior member of the Senate Commerce Committee, which oversees the telecom industry and the Federal Communications Commission. He has repeatedly pushed industry-backed legislation since 2000, particularly during a second stint as committee chairman from 2003 through 2005. His efforts to eliminate taxes and regulations on telecommunications services won him praise from industry executives."

This befuddled old gentleman from Arizona is absolutely the last person who should have his finger on the button. al-Qaeda in Iraq is not a threat. Civil war between the minority Sunni and majority Shi'ite maybe but not al-Qaeda. Get the US out of there and al-Qaeda won't last a week. He better keep Senator Joe L. handy to help him remember the difference.

As for the "let's start a war for no good reason so that we can accuse anyone who opposes it of being a latte-sipping, French loving, surrender monkey" approach to foreign policy...that's worked really well so far. Trillions in debt, thousands dead and the guy who started it all still at large. Good call John, try to sell that in November.

I'm buying stock in Geritol.

Also, I think that he could win California and/or New York with the right running mate . . .
