McCain Cowers As Soldiers Get Killed
Yesterday, Republican presidential candidate Senator John McCain went to Iraq to try to justify his support for an escalation of the war there. During his visit, McCain walked around in a Baghdad market to try to prove that it is safe for people to live normally in Baghdad.
During that quick walk through the market, McCain was wearing a bulletproof vest and was guarded by over one hundred American soldiers, three Blackhawk helicopters, and two Apache gunships. When John McCain cites such a heavily guarded incursion into a marketplace as evidence of how safe a neighborhood is, he is only proving how out of touch he is with reality. Ordinary Iraqis don’t even have one armed guard or one bulletproof vest to protect them. They cannot take a small army with them every time they need to go to market.
While Senator McCain cowered behind his armed escorts and proclaimed Iraq safe, six American soldiers in Iraq who did not have the benefit of the extraordinary protection John McCain enjoyed were killed.
If John McCain really thought that the streets of Baghdad were safe, he would have gone on his walk without any extra protection. McCain knew that Baghdad was unsafe, but that’s not what McCain told the American people. McCain would not tell us the truth about conditions in Iraq. How can we trust McCain to be President?
