|| By FITSNEWS || With America’s military-industrial propagandists having successfully fearmongered up a new war, it makes sense that the elder scaremonger – former “Republican” presidential nominee John McCain – is running for another term in the U.S. Senate.
McCain, dubbed “McWrong” by this website, made it official this week.
“Our nation faces unprecedented national security threats from abroad and major challenges at home, and how we act in the next few years may determine the fate of our great country,” he said. “I know that America needs strong, experienced leadership now more than ever, at this critical point in our history.”
Wait … didn’t taxpayers just spend $4-6 trillion (and thousands of American lives) waging a “War on Terror?”
How on earth, then, are we still facing “unprecedented national security threats?”
Seriously, what in the hell did we spend all that money for?
And in prosecuting this “War on Terror,” didn’t McCain propose weaponizing many of the same terrorist groups our country is now supposed to be fighting?
“You can’t argue with someone like John McCain on foreign policy,” we wrote last year. “Why not? Because the answer is always going to be more intervention and more weapons (a.k.a. more blood and more money). And when that fails – as such approaches have invariably failed – the answer is always to double down on the same failed approach.”
The only thing less successful than McCain’s warmongering? His 2008 presidential campaign.
Seriously … is it too much to wish this guy would hurry up and die?
Because supporting his reelection campaign is the same thing as wishing death on thousands of U.S. troops … to say nothing of the American citizens endangered by his perpetual, reckless interventionism.
