“They had an election and they elected moderates. They rejected Islamists. And yes, there are al-Qaeda factors and there are extremists in Libya today, but the Libyan people are friends of ours, and they support us, and they support democracy. So you were wrong about — so you were wrong about Libya.”
McCain caught playing poker on his phone while discussing sending Americans to war. Then laughs about it, “Discussing war for three hours is haaaaaaard. Can’t we just drink scotch and play poker and laugh while Americans die overseas?”
“Not only did John McCain participate in a war that killed some 4 million Vietnamese men, women, and children for no damn good reason, but he has been among the leading advocates for numerous additional wars ever since, resulting in the additional deaths of millions of men, women, and children for, yet again, no damn good reason – as part of wars that have mostly been defeats and always been failures even on their own terms. This senator, who sings “bomb, bomb Iran!” accuses Trump of firing up “the crazies.” Kettle, meet pot.”
