Dear Senator McCain: Go fuck yourself. McCain: Obama "Directly Responsible" for Orlando

Shooting.

Your comments, you pos, are unconscionable. Beneath contempt. It will be a pleasure to watch you get blown out of the water in your primary.

With nothing but ill wishes, I remain yours truly.....


Republican Sen. John McCain said Thursday that President Barack Obama is "directly responsible" for the mass shooting in Orlando, Florida, because Obama has allowed the growth of the Islamic State group on his watch.

McCain, who lost to Obama in the 2008 presidential election, made the comment to reporters Thursday while Obama was in Orlando visiting with the families of those killed in Sunday's attack and some of the survivors.

I guess he is either senile or, more likely, desperate about his re-election chances.
How he can not acknowledge that it was our invasion of the Arab World and subsequent brutality that created the various terrorist groups is beyond belief. Instead, he blames it on Obama pulling the troops out.
I will join the OP in a hearty "Fuck You McCain."

1) McCain fully supported Bush and Cheney's war in Iraq that destabilized the region in search of WMD's that did not exist.

2) McCain did not protest when Bush and Cheney installed an Iran-friendly Shia government thus excommunicating Sunnis from the government and military.

3) McCain did not object when Nouri al-Maliki, the new Bush Cheney installed President, severed pensions to former Sunni government and military officials and then sought revenge against those Sunnis who served in the Saddam government.

4) McCain seems to forget that Bush and Cheney's military had the future leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, imprisoned at Camp Bucca but released him in 2004 after he was deemed not to be a security risk.

5) McCain seems to forget that it was Bush and Cheney that negotiated the withdrawal of American troops and were unable to reach a SOFA agreement. The new Iran-friendly Shia government that they installed wanted the troops out and refused to allow Blackwater to continue their atrocities without due Iraqi legal recourse.

6) McCain seems to forget that he and his fellow Republicans have ignored the President's request of 18 months ago to Authorize a Use of Force in the region. In other words, the Republicans have refused to declare war against ISIS because of the political risks created by Bush and Cheney's original poor decision in Iraq.

7) Cheney ignores the fact that, like the Fort Hood shooter and the Boston Marathon bomber, the FBI had the Orlando shooter under investigation and closed the investigation and walked away.

CONCLUSION: IT'S CLEARLY ALL THE BLACK GUY'S FAULT

The first thing I said was "Go fuck yourself, McCain." Except I didn't say it, I screamed it. What a piece of crap. Time to flush the entire crappy Republican Party down the drain and start over.
