Maybe he thinks that the first 3 years of a century don't count?

This is nothing. In another speech (or maybe the same one) he referred to the Russia/Georgia thing as the "first great international crisis" post-9/11.

John McCain has been led to believe that the 21st century began in 2004.
Georgia is a sovereign nation ran by democratically elected leaders, Iraq was ruled by a dictator. Plus we didn't invade them, we liberated them. We gave Iraq back to the Iraqis, I don't think Russia plans to be as nice to Georgia.
What's that smell? Oh, troll droppings.
Oh Cena_mark, you keep proving that you're even stupider than the meathead "wrasslers" that you admire. It's so cute.
The S. Odessans wanted to secede from Georgia and become part of Russia. It was Georgia that started attacking them. Read a few news articles on the event before jumping to the "Russia invaded so it must be evil" conclusion.
Besides, Iraq was a sovereign nation too when we invaded them. And we didn't just invade the Kurdish region that wanted us to, we took the whole damn country and toppled the government. (And now we're fighting the Kurdish insurgents because they hate us, they just hated Saddam even more.)
I'd be more inclined to believe the "gave Iraq back to Iraqis" bit, if the Iraqi people's and government's requests for us to leave weren't met with laughter.
We don't have a moral underpinning for which countries we support and which actions we sanction. Pretending otherwise usually just results in grim comedy.
"But were we wrong to invade? No." -- John McCain in his 2004 artice, "Despite Everything, the Right War"
As a side note, it's been deleted from his site but is still present in the Google cache. Look it up in spite of McCain's best intentions. In conservative America, you see, 'truth' is a dirty word.
Hey, cena-mark, do me a favor and tell me exactly where and when we gave Iraq back to the Iraqi people, could you? I haven't been following the news lately, so I missed the entire US military pulling out of there.
Oh, I would also like to point out that McCains loudmouthed involvement in this whole thing is actually against the law. The Logan Act to be precise which was enacted in order to discourage exactly the kind of asshattery that can come from someone engaging in their own style of unofficial diplomacy when they have something to prove (like during an election season). Nothing will come of it, no one has the balls to actually call him on it, but it's still worth noting.
Mark Cena: When are we leaving Iraq? I would like to know. You just seem to know so much about the world.

In his defense, the man's not stupid. It isn't that he forgot any of these other invasions.
Its just that he subscribes to the "George W Bush" theory of responsibility: "It can't be wrong or a bad idea if we're the ones doing it".

I'm certain that immediately after saying that, his mind frantically dashes through as many reasons as possible to exclude Iraq.

It's not a real country...they had sanctions! And what about that funny language they speak! There's something foreign about it!

Perhaps becoming the republican nominee automatically makes people lose 50 IQ points.
Well he certainly seemed more articulate than the shrub.
|Lurchi - 2008-08-17 |
He manages to be stupid, arrogant and condescending in a completely different way than Bush.

Senile. The term is senile.
The Republicans are taking their Reagan nostalgia a bit too far, is all.
