Hate will consume you. Learn to let others have a different opinion without making it personal.
No, the principle is the same, they thought that they were doing right.
Jim, they were assassins. McCain is a senator who felt aggressive war strategy was best for our country. The two are NOT at all the same.
How in the hell is needless war, greed and shitting on our constitution an acceptable opinion to have?
Obviously assassins are not the same as US Senators. The former kill their targets up close and personal, while Senators justpass bills and call for DoD to do their killing for them.
Principles of moral conduct are not subject to profession or ethnicity. If it is wrong to steal, cheat, lie and murder as a baker it is similarly wrong to do the same as a cop, doctor, lawyer or judge.
To justify something along the rhetorical lines of 'he did what he thinks was right' is to endorse a subjective standard of behavior that can be distorted into justifying everything from the rail barons of the 1800s, to the Corporate Crony Network of our times.
McCain was wrong for much of what he has done, regardless of whether he was trying to do the right thing or not.
They thought they were doing what was good for the country
how many Americans died because of his neocon rhetoric? How many innocent lives all over the world?
If anything his analogy was in your favor.
Neocons think war is best for our country LOL
WTF OL sometimes you say retardedly stupid ass shit
You two gentlemen are calling a man a murderer for having an aggressive military stance. He felt it was what would keep this country safest. He is not the only person who believes that. I'm not going to argue whether it was right or not, the things he thought. It doesn't matter. What mattered when Jim opened this thread was the call to work together with others to get a solution of some sort that would give everyone some satisfaction. Yet it seems neither of you are willing to let your grudges go because the vote did not go your way.
So keep thinking it over, there, Jim.
Well the point of the OP was that I can overlook McCains status as Alpha Chicken Hawk due to this wonderful speech.
That doesnt mean he still isnt Alpha Chicken Hawk.
