McCain criticizing Obama’s foreign policy. There is honestly so much objectionable content in this speech I can hardly contain myself, but again, does nobody have a sense of irony?
“The Cold War ended not because the world stood ‘as one,’ but because the great democracies came together, bound together by sustained and decisive American leadership,” McCain said. “If I catch Sen. Obama’s drift, then, our failure to ‘lead by example’ was the liberation of Iraq. And if he really thinks that, by liberating Iraq from a dangerous tyrant, America somehow set a bad example that invited Russia to invade a small, peaceful and democratic nation, then he should state it outright — because that is a debate I welcome.”
Exactly, you maladroit twat! The cold war was won through containment, in no small part due to “mini-internationalism” on the scale of NATO. What happened in Iraq was almost entirely unilateral which is one of the reasons it was such a god awful idea. I mean, how can you be running for president and not understand how unbelievably flawed this comparison this is? I’m very flustered.
