"For two years now, John McCain has been entirely consistent on Iran: every last statement he’s made—at least, those that I’ve seen—has been (a) fabulously uninformed and (b) dangerously bellicose. He’s still at it, apparently. There is no question that President Obama’s more prudent path is the correct one right now. There is also no question that the neoconservatives are trying to gin up this situation into an excuse for not engaging with the Iranian government in the near future—and also as a rationale for their dearest, looniest dream, war with Iran.That's the big problems with people like McCain. They're always looking for a fight, some war or conflict to start. To them its always 1961 and its time to "bear any burden" and to hell with all that boring domestic stuff - why Paraguay is on the march and must be stopped, its Hitler all over again! Always its the same story - we need to go on a crusade & blow up stuff.
***The point is, neoconservatives like McCain and Wehner just can’t seem to quit their dangerous habit of making broad, extreme statements based on ideology rather than detailed knowledge of the situation in Iran and elsewhere."
We need to be engaged in the world, but remember what two Presidents said:
"America does not go abroad searching for monsters to destroy" and "Speak Softly, and carry a Big Stick".
