The Odd Couple

For you, Mr. McCain and for you Mr. Graham, my advice would be to regain your long-term memory and also some thinking abilities and accept that you two are irresponsible chicken hawks.

McCain and Graham fools
Tough guys. Sacrificing lives of others

“While many Iraqis are responsible for this strategic disaster, the administration cannot escape its share of the blame,” the senators said in a joint statement.  “When President Obama withdrew all U.S. forces … over the objections of our military leaders and commanders on the ground, many of us predicted that the vacuum would be filled by America’s enemies and would emerge as a threat to U.S. national security interests.  Sadly, that reality is now clearer than ever.”

“The administration’s narrative that Iraq’s political leadership objected to U.S. forces remaining in Iraq after 2011 is patently false,” said McCain and Graham, military hawks with an active interest in Middle East affairs.  “We know firsthand that Iraq’s main political blocs were supportive and that the administration rejected sound military advice and squandered the opportunity to conclude a security agreement with Iraq.” http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/01/04/mccain-graham-blame-obama-for-al-qaeda-related-takeover-fallujah-call-situation/

Sound Military advice?  Sound military advice?

For you, Mr. McCain and for you Mr. Graham, my advice would be to regain your long-term memory and also some thinking abilities and accept that you two are irresponsible chicken hawks.

Talking heads
War criminals responsible for countless death’s and sectarian violence.

And it would serve you well to remember that you supported this unlawful invasion in a country that posed no threat to America. And, the two of you, considering your frequent advice to President Obama, should have known that invasion and destruction of the Iraqi society would lead to sectarian violence.

And now, after this totally unnecessary and criminal war caused mayhem and destruction in Iraq, with thousands of Americans dead or injured and a ruined economy, you have the nerve to blame President Obama for ending the war, ending the disastrous campaign that could not be sustained anymore?  Have you no shame?

Military advice?  Military’s function and duty is to execute orders of the Commander In Chief, not to make policy.  It is your job, your duty, to conduct sound policy here and abroad.  And both of you have failed!

And it would be a sound policy for the two of you to shut up and go away…for the greater good of our country.

We emigrated from the Soviet Union in 1979. I am proud of my children who grew up here in America. America is truly a great country and I am trying to do what I can to keep America great. We the people need to participate in a Democracy. I think that in a Democracy we need to constantly be vigilant and work to uphold our way of life. I am fighting for the freedom of speech and expression and against all kinds of extremes including political correctness.

  1. Nathan, Your blog about Senators McCain and Graham rekindled my unresolved rage at the Republicans for an endless stream of blame and finger-pointing at President Obama. It has been the Republicans singular effort to discredit Obama for decisions made by them during previous administrations. Do they really think we’ve forgotten about the criminology of the Iraq War? Is it there own memory problems in leaving out the facts or are they hoping we will forget what happened? I will never forget the injustices done to our soldiers or to our country. I haven’t forgotten Viet Nam…why would I lose track of the following names: Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz. They are war criminals who have not yet had their Nuremberg.
