Comments on: McCain sees India, U.S. teaming up against “troubling” China http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2010/11/05/mccain-sees-india-u-s-teaming-up-against-troubling-china/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: MarkoGA http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2010/11/05/mccain-sees-india-u-s-teaming-up-against-troubling-china/comment-page-1/#comment-412069 Tue, 23 Nov 2010 19:32:30 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=31477#comment-412069 Perhaps we should ask ourselves why John McCain would want to escalate the rhetoric in an already tense situation with China so publicly. Does anyone think that the best way to bring our situation with China to a peaceful conclusion would include teaming up with another country and issuing daily public insults about your supposed world partners (ie China)?

I have two theories. One, though certainly no proof exists, is that McCain would like Obama to look bad at all costs, so he has set him up to fail in foreign policy by picking the easiest public fight in history!

The second, though less develish is probably the most likely. McCain really does believe that the best way to change things is through public feuding and insult escalation and furhter through military action and intimidation. This itself is a problem. Shouldn’t war still be the “last resort”? And if you want to go to war or pick a fight with somebody, why not North Korea? They are dangerous and they are furthermore testing nuclear weapons and shooting up South Korean islands with missles.

I can only surmise that McCain really believes these things because the initial explanation is just too scary to think about. That would make him an out and out traitor to the United States and I certainly hope that this war hero would never be on the level of Boehner and that he could somehow rise above that Republican Charleton.

But that leaves this aweful explanation about the military being first and foremost on his mind to use in nearly any situation. He has often said that he would never negotiate with what he perceived to be terrorists. He has made marked comments on how he would never even open lines of communication with people that he perceived to be threats. Well, I ask you, what would be the outcome of that disastrous policy 100% of the time? War. No thanks. Bush gave us enough unjustified war. Let’s work it out this time.

When Nixon went to China the idea was that our engagement would have a moderating effect. Now we have lost most of our leverage as we are more dependent on them than they are on us.

No, he merely spent 7 years as a POW in Vietnam.

You are so insensitive and mean spirited. What makes you so perfect?

Maybe the two of them would rather team up and create the new world order in manufacturing instead of go to war with each other.

Is there any one still there who regards Mr McCain’s comments seriously. During the last election he submitted a one hundred pages medical history. Let us wish him good health.
