    McCain wants U.S. Troops to Die!

    In January, McCain told a questioner in Derry, N.H., that U.S. troops could spend "maybe 100" years in Iraq "

    on NBC's "Today" show, McCain was asked whether he could estimate when U.S. troops could leave post-surge Iraq. "No, but that's not too important," McCain said.

    McCain called for a minimum of six additional Army brigades -- roughly 25,000 soldiers -- to be sent to Iraq

    He warned that his recommendation “will mean more casualties and extra hardships for our brave fighting men and women” and that “the violence may get worse

    OMG! McCain wants our troops to DIE!

    See how silly this is? Lets take quotes out of context from sketchy sources and put a completely slanted spin to further our own agendas, jlohm1?

    Obviously McCain does NOT want our troop to die, and the surge actually appears to be working. I can admit it, can you admit that paying a little more for gas now could lead to America becoming oil independent quicker?

    Now everyone can go ahead and rip this up and down. In fact, I expect and encourage it. Because it is bush league (no pun intended) crap to throw up ridiculous slanted thread titles that are so obviously bastardizations of the true spirit behind one candidate's or another's intentions.

    brilliantly played, bosox!

    people really need to open their eyes sometimes and realize how susceptible they are to misinformation and blatantly-slanted headlines for one agenda or another.

    I don't agree with saying McCain wants troops to die. However, if he is elected, the war situation is going to go downhill fast. The war is already a waste, like what ccugrad1 said. So, may as well not waste our time and SAVE lives, rather than waste more time and soldiers lives. My brother is going into the Air Force next year, so I am hoping this war is over before he is shipped over to that deathtrap.

    Thanks Broadway! I gotta admit, I don't usually like to do this sort of thing, but I come to the election forum several times a day, and the "Obama wants higher gas prices" thread title pisses me off every time.

    they become indentured servants...

    come on this is common knowledge people!

    I dunno about you guys, but I enjoy the Daily Show b/c they call out the ridiculousness of the news media. Recently this moron on FOX News(big surprise) accused Obama of plagerizing a Mario Cuomo speech. They played both clips back to back and they were like night and day. Then they had the text from both speeches and not only were they different, but "of" "the" and "we" were the ONLY words they had in common!!!!!

    ...then the guy goes to his counterpart, "Is this plaigerism?" hahahaha the news media at its best!

    So your admitting that you like the higher gas prices so people will use less?

    The war right now is a waste. You can't force Democracy on people!! Bring the troops home or better yet, send McCain out into the field!!!
    So your saying you want McCain hurt or dead?

    Thanks Broadway! I gotta admit, I don't usually like to do this sort of thing, but I come to the election forum several times a day, and the "Obama wants higher gas prices" thread title pisses me off every time.
    Did all the McThreads we had going make you mad too?
    YES

    would that be any better or worse than thousands of young men and women needlessly dying for an idiotic and unjustified war? the purpose of his statement is similar to that of black sabbath's "war pigs" - why don't these politicians fight the wars they start? why don't they step out from behind their heavily-armored board rooms and executive suites and man up to what they've caused in the first place.

    if you think he's simply implying that mccain should die, you're comprehension skills are remedial at best.

    of course you could just be trying to sensationalize and intentionally take out of context that base of that statement.

    Yup. Probably why I get heated when I'm posting in there. I decided to go with a new strategy of just writing questions. We'll see how that works. Otherwise, it's time to pull out the old ignore command.
