McCain, Hillary, Iraq, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and other bugs

Something is bugging me.

I'm listening to John McCain and he wants us to believe everything that he and his buddy George W. Bush have to say about how great the United States surge in Iraq is working.

I wonder if anyone asks the parents and children of Iraq if the surge is working? I guess America should feel proud of the Bush/McCain/Clinton policy of blowing up Iraqi children, and the providing the children wheelchairs. I guess Hillary should be proud of her vote to go to war?

This as Iranian President Ahmadinejad arrives in Iraq.

(ABCNEWS.com) Yes, Ahmadinejad went to Iraq taunting the US during his historic visit to Iraqi capital As reported by ABC News, "It was also a show of defiance to the United States, which accuses Iran of contributing to the destabilization of Iraq.

Unlike visits by President Bush, which are kept secret until the last minute for security reasons, Ahmadinejad's visit had been telegraphed long in advance.

The United States did not provide security for Ahmadinejad's visit. Instead, the Iraqis brought in hundreds of extra police and soldiers to protect the route from the airport into the center of Baghdad.

The Iranian president was due to spend the night at the residence of Iraq's president, Jalal Talabani, and not in a villa inside the U.S.-controlled Green Zone, which is where most high-level visitors stay.

Ahmadinejad criticized the United States at a press conference with Maliki, saying that "the Iraqi people do not like America."

He has repeatedly called for a U.S. withdrawal from Iraq -- something that even the Iraqi government opposes in the short term.

The Iraqi defense minister recently said he thought some U.S. troops should remain for 10 years until the Iraqi army is ready to defend the country on its own."

AAPP: What! - 10 years until the Iraqi army is ready to defend the country on its own? Oh hell to the no! All of this as Iraqi Children experience this:

Iraqi boys staged a mock execution Monday in Baghdad, with a 4-year-old, center, playing the role of the condemned. Children in Iraq have been heavily influenced by violence. Among other games the youngsters play is one that imitates a clash between militias and the police.
They have also been
disabled at crazy numbers.


Candidly, I think John McCain is nothing more than an old fart and a bug that just needs to go away and retire. I wonder if there is anything in the Iran leaders accusation of US terrorism ?

Hopefully the American people will decide the Bush/McCain/Hillary Clinton plan for Iraq is just as bad as the Bush/McCain economic policies. I don't like bugs. Do you?
