I don't have access to You Tube or a video link, but anyone who has been following this election cycle has to remember him saying that.
Why would any one be ok with that? Have some folks forgot what war really is? Do some people think that this is some video game?
Who does not have a problem with McCain saying this.
Obama's campaign managers better get off their asses and do an ad with the video clip with this old man who gets wood over the thought of war, saying this and the poor joke about bombing Iran to a Beach Boys song.

Mc Cain says such things because he is an Economics ignoramus. Wars have increased our national debt from 6 trillion just before the Iraq war started to over 9 trillion today. Never in the history of this country has the national debt grown so rapidly.

I really want to hear from Republicans with this one, sorry to sound like I'm baiting, but I thought I would get more responses. Maybe you can't defend something that's proably indefensible?
My guess is I'll hear the "fight the terrorists there, so we won't fight them over here" argument. However, humans are still dying, it's not some video game.

Both Iraq and Afghanistan war are costing about $5000/second or $410 million dollars/day. This money could be used to fix the real estate crisis and get the economy back on track.

Because there WILL be more wars..I don't care who's in charge...there was world war 1, world war 2, the cold war, the iraq war, vietnam. Iraq war is NOT the last war there will be more. History repeats itself. Are wars a good thing..no. But there are more bound to happen.

Isn't the job of the president to try to stop wars instead of provoke them. America in the past has tried to stay out of wars not cause them.

Because most people feel that we are right and just in our actions. There are no repercussions for our actions, they all occur in a vacuum. The lives of innocent civilians, as long as they're not of European descent, are expendable. Most people haven't connected the dots yet to realize that our currency is weakening due to the amount of money we are printing to fund these wars and maintaining our empire.

And all of this is ok... as long as there's not a shot of a nipple during the halftime show. Then we've got real issues to deal with.

Because the fact is, wars are part of human history since the beginning of time.
