John McCain's Shameless Call for Escalation in Iraq
by Allan Uthman

The idea that the war hurts McCain is just plain dumb. Americans may regret the war, but most Republicans still hate the idea of admitting defeat. McCain's hawkishness will help him secure the GOP nomination, perhaps the most difficult obstacle between him and the White House -- and the reason for all the fundamentalist footsy with Falwell. And a still-roiling quagmire in Iraq would be huge boon for McCain in a run against soft-on-slaughter Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, his most likely opponent.

people are sick of this war...and this even in light of the fact that no one but the troops has sacrificed one iota. The troops (and we are talking about volunteer forces) are calling for an end. They cannot sustain the agony of almost uninterrupted duty there. Iraq will decimate our military. The top officers are worried. McCain is a hypocrite who has whored himself to be president; we must let everyone know everytime we get a chance.
