  •  Credibility, Cynicism, and Emotional Dissonance (4+ / 0-)

    SEN McCain alone proves that personal sacrifice does not bestow an American with any unique credibility on topics of national security.  You would think that an accomplished field-grade officer of the US Navy would well understand that in armed conflict, sometimes those in charge don't have an absolutely clear understanding of the situation 100% of the time, re. that the President didn't call the Benghazi attack a "terrorist" attack less than 24 hours after the event.

    Of course, I do think he understands the timeless principle of the Fog of War, which just demonstrates how cynical he is.

    And regarding his enthusiasm for American involvement in Syria, it's absolutely breathtaking that a man who suffered so much serving his nation in executing an ill-conceived, purposeless war would be so fucking eager to engage that nation in another.
