McCain: Iraq Is 'A Peaceful And Stable Country Now'


thinkprogress.org

Q: Some members of the [Iraqi] government have made it clear in the last month or two that they might want to withdraw before complete stability, before totally secure borders, before some of the completeness of victory as you described. Is there any change, do you think there is some wiggle room there because what you described with Petraeus was an end point that was rather complete — a peaceful, stable country.

MCCAIN: Its a peaceful and stable country now.

I think McCain can't handle all the pressure of this campaign or something.

It's like he's loosing touch with reality and he believes that whatever he says is right, it's the truth, and everybody should believe him and not question what he says!

This quote was recorded by a reporter for TIME magazine. For some strange reason though the quote was left out of the article.

Has he already forgotten the two bombings over there last week that killed 50 people? Is he just forgetting that last month over 350 Iraqi's were killed and that already this month over 25 have been killed?

Now, I'm all for us pulling out of Iraq and letting them take over and get things under control themselves, but I certainly wouldn't say Iraq is now "A Peaceful And Stable Country Now’!

At 51 seconds in, he says "it's a peaceful and stable country now".

I wish I lived in John McCain's world. Iraq is peaceful and stable, the economy is sound... good times. Unfortunately, the world I live in doesn't seem to match up with that.

The man is clearly delusional...

but at least his little dream world understandings are leading him to the same conclusion, pull out of Iraq.


To say "Iraq is a peaceful and stable country now."... mmm, If I knew him personally, I'd be persuading him to seek psychological tests. That level of delusion can't be a result of anything healthy.

BOOM, 50 people dead...
"That was a peaceful and stable suicide bomber."


Yeah... ok... get help McCain.

I'll bet my left testicle that you wouldn't see armed checkpoints and the remains of thousands of dead bodies in LA! I'll bet my right testicle you don't walk down the street fearing treading on a landmine, or being sniped, or being blown to smithereens by a mortar.

Damn mate, you need to get out more and see the world outside your window.

He should have tea with John Lear.

They can discuss the wonders of the democratic utopia that is Iraq while debating which planet has the best oceanfront property, Saturn or Mars.

Meanwhile in this dimension:

Bombs near Shiite mosques in Baghdad kill 24 - Associated Press

Compared to this country, he is absolutely right. How many people have died in LA alone this year? What about Philly, New York, Miami, Pittsburgh, etc... Bash the man all you want, but compared to this country we call home, Iraq is pretty peaceful.

Since violence increased since our arrival and its much less than here in the States then I suppose Iraq was just fine before we got there and should have been left alone.

While the security situation has improved markedly in Iraq due to the surge the country is still a long way from being a peaceful and stable country . The Iraqi government still has to prove that it is capable of governing and the quality of screening and training of the Iraqi military and police has to be vastly improved . Only then alone with a few other things thrown in can Iraq stand a chance of becoming a peaceful and stable country by any reasonable measure .

Well, it's gotta be Saturn - as a gas giant, it's practically entirely ocean whereas Mars is a bit lacking in liquid...come on conspiracy nutters, let's hear how I'm wrong!

Does anyone have that link to the 3000 sunni men who had been captured by the Shiite death squads, raped repeatedly, tortured and left to rot in a cell?

Doesn't the quran say that bum-sex is a bad thing? Or is it simply receiving bum-sex that's the crime?

No offense but probably not the right terminology to use on a conspiracy website

Staggering.

I appreciate that as Republican candidate following on from Bush that it's to be expected that he paints a rosy picture of Iraq; I'd expect that of any party to be honest.

However, it does little to correct the lazy stereotype that Americans know absolutely bugger-all about anywhere other than America.

That's great news


The first order of the day when he takes the reins of power will be to order the complete withdrawal of US forces from Iraq. Mission accomplished and all that.

Seriously, the guy is so delusional and out of touch it's scary. We all expect politicians to be out of touch with reality sometimes but this guy really takes it to a whole new level.

Yeppir! I guess he is selling his palatial mansion so that he can now buy himself some prime real estate in this "peaceful" paradise that our government has created.

Excellent! Iraq is stable. The war is now officially over. We won. Now, John, bring the troops home NOW. NO need to be there. No worry about coming home in 'dishonor'. Bring them home today. Good for you John McCain. You've won the war. Only thing next to do is go to Disney.

The man is not delusionalhe is getting ready in the case of becoming President for the exodus of military forces coming back to the US, as the bail out bill will definitely take a hit at the defense spending, he already knows but been Republican and pro war this is a big flip flop for the Reblican party that has squandered so much money in the Hoax call the Iraqi war.

So no matter what America will not be able to afford the footing bill for having two wars.

Interesting I found this article of how much the tax payer is footing for each soldier in Iraq.

The Cost of Boots on the Ground in Iraq


The Congressional Budget Office (CBO), in its report Contractors' Support of U.S. Operations in Iraq, compared the costs of maintaining a Blackwater professional armed guard versus the U.S. military providing such services itself. Both came in at about $500,000 per person per year.
