Sen. John McCain on the ISC's Report

At the Senate Armed Services Committee hearing Thursday, Sen. McCain summed it up succinctly:

On the overall ISG recommendations: "There's only one thing worse than an overstressed Army and Marine Corps, and that's a defeated Army and Marine Corps. I believe [the ISG report] is a recipe that will lead to our defeat sooner or later in Iraq,"

On negotiations with Iran and Syria: "I don't believe that a peace conference with people who are dedicated to your extinction has much short-term gain."


Good for Sen. McCain. We simply cannot let Iraq become another Viet Nam. And those of us who came of age during those unglorious days of the 60s must lead the charge. We must. And we shall.
