“The leading advocate for escalating the war is Senator John McCain. I have served with John in Congress and I respect him. But John McCain is wrong, dead wrong to think that we can solve Iraq’s political crisis through military escalation.”
“There are no quick or easy answers to the crisis in Iraq. Our choices are between bad options and worse ones. Some prefer military escalation. Some choose staying the course. These options are illusions. The only realistic choice we have is to stand down militarily and let the Iraqis stand up and face the political crisis which only they can resolve.”

We Need More
We need more voices like Bill Richardson. He came out today and spoke the truth about John McCain. The call for more cannon fodder in Iraq is insanity and it is against the will of the vast majority of the American people and equally important the rest of the world. There is absolutely no way we can win in Iraq(whatever win means) using military force. McCain and his chorus of Lieberman and Graham are still absolutely wrong as they have been for four years. Iraq is toast, we fucked it up big time, screwed, blued and tattooed. Thank goodness there are some that will speak out against this insanity. Thanks Bill Richardson.
