Ok is it me or did John McCain just restart the cold war with Russia?
Did John McCain just not say that Russia is using Nuclear Weapons to threaten and manipulate the world?
Did John McCain not tell Russia to go screw itself and that NATO should once again get into full force to protect us from the new addition to the axis of evil?
Is Russia the alternative plan to the invasion of Iran?
You tell me, because John McCain in my opinion is not talking about a 100 year war, but the end of all life on this planet.
What did you hear in his speech or your comment.
Here is the TEXT of the Speech
REMARKS BY JOHN MCCAIN TO THE LOS ANGELES WORLD AFFAIRS COUNCIL
EMBARGOED UNTIL DELIVERY
Wednesday, March 26, 2008
ARLINGTON, VA — U.S. Senator John McCain’s will deliver the following remarks as prepared for delivery today at the World Affairs Council in Los Angeles, California:
When I was five years old, a car pulled up in front of our house in New London, Connecticut, and a Navy officer rolled down the window, and shouted at my father that the Japanese had bombed Pearl Harbor. My father immediately left for the submarine base where he was stationed. I rarely saw him again for four years. My grandfather, who commanded the fast carrier task force under Admiral Halsey, came home from the war exhausted from the burdens he had borne, and died the next day.
In Vietnam, where I formed the closest friendships of my life, some of those friends never came home to the country they loved so well. I detest war. It might not be the worst thing to befall human beings, but it is wretched beyond all description. When nations seek to resolve their differences by force of arms, a million tragedies ensue. The lives of a nation’s finest patriots are sacrificed. Innocent people suffer and die. Commerce is disrupted; economies are damaged; strategic interests shielded by years of patient statecraft are endangered as the exigencies of war and diplomacy conflict. Not the valor with which it is fought nor the nobility of the cause it serves, can glorify war. Whatever gains are secured, it is loss the veteran remembers most keenly. Only a fool or a fraud sentimentalizes the merciless reality of war. However heady the appeal of a call to arms, however just the cause, we should still shed a tear for all that is lost when war claims its wages from us.
