Who was the McCain Surrogate just on MSNBC? He said an attack on Iran
was the only way to ensure an end to Iran's nuclear program. I thought they called him Frank Kagan, but I am not sure.

1. PNACer Frederick Kagan, author of "the surge", lol.

He is not supporting McCain; he is still true to the PNAC agenda - complete takeover and permanent presence in the ME. McCain just happens to be the guy who wants to bomb Iran and stay in Iraq forever.

6. They portrayed him as a McCain supporter. A lot of bush advisors are
now working in the McCain campaign. Of the two candidates, McCain seems to be the one that will continue policies that would further the PNAC goals.

From reading the PNAC article "Rebuilding America's Defenses" it appeared that the Mideast was just a gas station for a conquest of south Asia and then a sweep into Korea and finally China.

8. This is the first time i've heard about the march to Korea and then China.
Why do they let that out of the proverbial bag?

10. the article spells out their desire to control the world militarily.
That's where the "Pearl Harbor" reference came from. They said they needed a Pearl Harbor to get their agenda on the front burner. 9-11 became their avenue into Iraq.

12. No wonder they're all hung up about world conquest.
From the looks of that pathetic, nebbishy, bloated, pasty-faced, shifty-eyed little nerd, that's the only way he's gonna feel like a real man. Too bad more than four thousand of our finest have had to die for his overcompensation complex.

9. The Daily Kos essay on this guys 'expertise' is fascinationg. I would say, however,
that he probably has his certificates from the bi-annual Karl Rove Seminars titled How To Talk Like An Expert on our Republican TV Shows and C-Span.

3. That's what he said. He said it was the ONLY way to stop Iran, and that it was
wishful thinking to try and sit down and talk them out of building a bomb.

He's the archetype for the kid we used to kick the shit out of in grade school.

I'm sorry.

5. When your only tool is a hammer
all problems are seen as nails. Tunnel vision is another word for these guys.

11. MSNBC has had a seemingly endless string of McCain supporters on this morning
one after another.
