John McCain, from war hawk to peacenik?


United States ex-Republican party presidential candidate John McCain has done quite some political flip-flops in his life.

Like his flip-flop from crony of Gadaffi to 2011 Libyan war hawk and crony of the anti-Gadaffi Benghazi kind of people who recently murdered the United States ambassador to Libya.

However, the latest news seems to be about a McCain flip-flop which, if true, would be a lot more welcome than the other ones.

It was surprising enough to hear this week that Republican C.W. Bill Young of Florida made a u-turn and called for an immediate withdrawal from Afghanistan. But Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), Republican foreign policy leader, former presidential candidate, and hawk extraordinaire takes the cake.

“I think all options ought to be considered, including whether we have to just withdraw early, rather than have a continued bloodletting that won’t succeed,” McCain said.

I’ll leave the commentary to Joey:

This video from the USA is called JOEY SAYS “WHOA!” (complete version).
