Presumptive Republican Presidential candidate John McCain, like his President in Washington, does not want to softly deal with suspected Bin Laden-embracing or nuke-developing countries. For him, talking to possible terrorists is a big waste of time. He even criticizes presumptive Democratic Presidential Candidate Barrack Obama for planning a friendly stance toward those hostile countries.

Once again, McCain is certain with what he is saying as if Bush’s war strategy yielded positive results – a war that he strongly encouraged and supported. Years after the United States started a war in Afghanistan, al-Qaeda still remains a hot news item and its leader still speaks confidently on camera against America. McCain’s irony does not just end there as the War on Iraq which he favored and still favors, continues to defeat its purpose.

Obama may have erred in his stance on Afghanistan years ago, but he saw wisdom in voting against the War on Iraq. If he plans to learn from the mistakes that he saw, then such a plan is expected of a man who uses his mind. McCain simply looks beyond what he sees, but the problem is that such “beyond” sights of this veteran senator are clearly unreal. Logic simply dictates us to learn from our past failures. If we listen to McCain and believe that the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq which destroyed more innocent lives than 9/11 are not a failure, then this world would be far worse than too much.
