Why Did John McCain Sell Out America?
by Patrick J. Buchanan
Offering more “straight talk” on the Sunday before the Florida primary, John McCain made an arresting prediction: "It’s a tough war we’re in. There’s going to be other wars. We will never surrender but there will be other wars."
Ike promised to "go to Korea" and ended that war. Nixon pledged to end Vietnam with honor. McCain says we may be in Iraq a hundred years and warns, "there's going to be other wars." Take the man at his word.
McCain has urged the expulsion of Russia from the G-8. He wants to expand NATO to bring in Georgia and the Ukraine. This could mean confrontation between Russia and the United States over whether South Ossetia and Abkhazia should be free of Georgia or ruled by Tbilisi, a matter of zero vital interest to this country.
We are forewarned. John McCain intends to be a war president.
Where Bush has lately cleansed his administration of neocons, McCain offers the last best hope for a neocon return and restoration and more wars in the Middle East. And if, as seems probable, Netanyahu again becomes prime minister of Israel, he and a President McCain will find a pretext for war on Iran.
