McCain insane 

I've been off this blog for the past three months, on account of more pressing needs in family, life, career and direct political action. Needless to say, the Dem whitewashing of the Party That Has Lost Its Way was a much-needed ray of hope for the country. Now, if just the Dems would do something.

McCain says about naysayers of the surge "I don't think it's appropriate to say that you disapprove of a mission and you don't want to fund it and you don't want it to go, but yet you don't take the action necessary to prevent it", implying that no reasonable alternatives are proposed.

Here's one. SAY YOU'RE SORRY. We, the US, need to tell the world, "Hey, we're sorry, we screwed up...royally...and we need your help." Forget partisan infights. Forget unilateral macho posing. Say we're sorry, we messed it up big time, we have no exit planned, Mission Accomplished is now Mission Impossible, the Geneva Convention became the Get-Even Convention, and we, the US, lost our way. We became what we professed to hate. And now, even as we as a nation slowly begin to accept what the world has recognized as Global Climate Change for a decade, we come to realize that we, the US, are behind the times, and can learn from the rest of the world. We cannot go it alone, we're only 4.5% of the world's people, and guess what, we're wrong a lot.

SAY YOU'RE SORRY AND ASK FOR HELP. Balkanize Iraq into Shiraq, Sunniraq and Kurdiraq, remember those Dayton peace terms (nothing new here...I've been pressing for Balkanization ever since the bone-headed war started).

How dare McCain and the Republicans chastise the Dems for not having a solution in Iraq. You grabbed us, pulled us out of the plane without parachutes, and now we're halfway to the ground, and you say, "Well, why can't you fix this problem?" Could have, if YOU LET ME TAKE A PARACHUTE. Like our allies and the UN, that's a nice parachute. Ask for help, haploids, you're at terminal velocity.
