McCain Confused over Iraq War

John McCain at a town hall meeting today said, "My friends, I will have an energy policy that we will be talking about, which will eliminate our dependence on oil from the Middle East that will prevent us from having ever to send our young men and women into conflict again in the Middle East". On the surface this statement by McCain can be taken to mean that our young men and women are there to protect oil interests.

Later in the day ,when challenged by the press, McCain trying to clarify his earlier hazy statement on war by declaring that he was talking about the first Iraqi War. "No, no, I was talking about that we had fought the Gulf War for several reasons," Mc Cain claimed. One reason he sighted was that Hussein had invaded Kuwait. Continuing to try to weasel his way out of the earlier statement Mc Cain blurted out the truth. "But also we didn't want him to have control over the oil, and that part of the world is critical to us because of our dependency on foreign oil, and it's more important than any other part of the world," McCain continued. McCain is running on his experience in foreign and military affairs, so I would image he would know the truth about why we would have gotten involved in Iraqi. Speaking of Iraqi Oil, where does all the Iraqi Oil revenue go, are they repaying the U.S. for liberating them. The mantra of the Administration was that the oil revenues would pay for the war. When will the repayment begin and what is the payment schedule. What monetary value was placed on the lives of the dead US Military, how much for the maimed, and how much for the disabled. The money from Iraqi oil must go somewhere, where does it go?

The Republicans can not be happy with their choice for President. So far McCain has admitted that he didn't know much about economic issues, he criticized the Federal response to Katrina, which in Republicanville was a job well done by Brownie.

The Republicans fear a McCain Presidency so much that their radio and television propagandist are encouraging their lemmings to cross party lines and vote for Sen. Clinton. In fact, it seems that the main stream right wing media favors Senator Clinton's nomination and election.

As McCain continues to campaign it will be interesting to see how many other issues he flip-flops on and how many Republican secrets he tells us. MCain's lack of Economic policy was fixed by hiring the ex-CEO of Hewlett Packard, who on her first round of cable talk shows tried to tell the American Public that the rise in gas prices had nothing to do with the Iraqi Occupation. So much for learning Economic from his economic adviser.

Will Sen. McCain hire a an executive from one of the Republican Para-military corporation to speak for him on the war?

SPECIAL for May, 2, 2008
Today the President submitted his supplemental budget for the Iraqi Occupation and request ANOTHER 70 BILLION DOLLARS on top of the funding request for 108 BILLION which is still pending for this catastrophe that he created in Iraqi, 46 Billion of which is to support combat operations. Five years and 1 day ago, this same President said that "major combat operations have ended", That is a lot of money for a war that doesn't exist.

Tax rebate stimulus checks that is suppose to dig the U.S. Economy out of the economic depression that it is in totaled 120 Billion Dollars... less than 1 year appropriation for Iraq, something is rotten in Denmark.
