The Straight Talk Express Derails Again

WASHINGTON - Sen. John McCain defended President Bush's Iraq plan on Friday as a difficult but necessary move, parting company with lawmakers fiercely resisting the military build up. "I believe that together these moves will give the Iraqis and Americans the best chance of success," said McCain, R-Ariz., a leading presidential contender for 2008.

McCain also took a shot at Democrats who say the United States must bring some troops home within four to six months. "I believe these individuals ... have a responsibility to tell us what they believe are the consequences of withdrawal in Iraq," he said. "If we walk away from Iraq, we'll be back, possibly in the context of a wider war in the world's most volatile region."

He has no shame whatsoever.

Hmm, did anyone ever tell us what would be the consequences of WAR in Iraq?

I beleive the consequences of withdrawning troops are much clearer than for adding troops.
