Crooks and Liars » McCain Suggests Iraqi War-like Clampdown To Deal With Inner City Crime
"MCCAIN: And some of those tactics - you mention the war in Iraq - are like that we use in the military. You go into neighborhoods, you clamp down, you provide a secure environment for the people that live there, and you make sure that the known criminals are kept under control. And you provide them with a stable environment and then they cooperate with law enforcement, etc, etc."
The above outlines the gist of what we know as the Surge. It involved a door to door sweep through Iraqi neighborhoods. Long gone are the columns of offensive equipment that highlighted our latest technological advances. On occasion, they use our smart ass bomb technology that hit their target and everything around it. This is the same smart ass bomb weapons that create a insurgency loop. After killing an innocent, lets say a child, the relatives of that child become the next wave of insurgents hell bent on revenge.
I know John McCain cannot be thinking of this kind of offensive in the streets of America. While I know the use of smart bomb technology is out of the question, if they steal another election, I do see McCain using door to door tactics to quite opposition. The media has been very busy trying to give the impression McCain is close to Barack Obama and ready to take the lead. Hell, I would not be surprised if Gallup release a poll tomorrow with McCain in the lead. There is no way in hell McCain is beating Obama or even close to him. What you are seeing are polls made to order. Yet, I can’t help but feel we are being soften up for another stolen election.
I was watching Tom Brokaw on “Meet the Press.” He was interviewing Barack Obama during his European trip. Brokaw was so dismissive toward anything positive Obama did during the trip and wanted only to talk about hypothetical scenarios. I sat in front of the TV calling Brokaw every kind of bastard I could think of. He made me feel unimportant and I was not even there. After the program, I pondered what would happen if all of the media treated Obama in this way. There is no doubt Obama would have a problem. We would have to brace ourselves for another 8 years of Republican rule. I don’t think this country can live through another conservative administration.
