Well, as long as they don't want to send our troops, I'm OK with it. We know Mr. McCain is a brave soldier, but I wasn't aware Mr Graham was military material. I worry he might change his mind once his feet hit ground in Iraq.
Maybe A&E could even do an action-based, money-making series featuring McCain and Graham as the "Falluja Men" — like the Ax Men, Dynasty Duckers, Ice Road Truckers, UFO Hunters, Ancient Alien Theorists, and so on.
You wanna know why advocates for big business and the wealthy are always wanting to invade some place?

Read This...the night show comedians are even joking about it:

"The Army's unwanted tanks"

Last year, the U.S. Army made an unusual request to Congress: Stop sending us tanks. That plea was issued after legislators ignored the Army's objections and approved a defense appropriations bill that included $255 million for 42 new M1 Abrams tanks. With 2,300 M1s already deployed around the world, and 3,000 more sitting idle at a base in California's Sierra Nevada mountains, the military said it simply didn't need any more tanks. But Ohio politicians pushed for the extra M1s, so as to keep open an 800-worker tank plant in the state. "A lot of lawmakers stuff funding into defense bills that could benefit their district,"
said Steve Ellis, vice president of Taxpayers for Common Sense. Republican Rep. Jim Jordan, whose district is home to the tank plant, insisted that he supported the program for reasons of national security. "I think it's in the best interests of the U.S. to defend our country," he said.

In 1960 on his way out of office Dwight Eisenhower took the time to make a speech to the entire nation warning them against the perils of a military/industrial complex and everyone has stood by and watch it develop anyway. We spend more than the next 17 most powerful nations in the world combined, have troops in 140 countries and the last time anybody surrendered to us was in 1945.

Seoul Spring
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seoul_Spring
The Seoul Spring was a period of democratization in South Korea from 26 October 1979 to 17 May 1980.
This expression was derived from the Prague spring of Czechoslovakia in 1968.
Finally the Seoul Spring ended up with Gwangju Massacre on 18 May 1980.

Chun Doo-hwan
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chun_Doo-hwan
Chun Doo-hwan (Korean pronunciation: born 18 January 1931) is a ROK Army general who served as the leader and a dictator of South Korea from 1979 to 1988, ruling as an unelected military strongman from December 1979 to September 1980, and the fifth President of South Korea from 1980 to 1988.
Chun was sentenced to death in 1996 for his role in the Gwangju Massacre, but later pardoned by President Kim Young-sam with the advice of then President-elect Kim Dae-jung, whom Chun's administration had sentenced to death some 20 years earlier.

Gwangju massacre
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gwangju_massacre
The Gwangju Massacre, also known as Gwangju Democratization Movement refers to a popular movement in the city of Gwangju, South Korea from May 18 to 27, 1980.
Estimates suggest up to 165 people may have died.
During this period, citizens rose up against Chun Doo-hwan's dictatorship and took control of the city.
In the course of the movement, citizens took up arms (by robbing police stations and military depots) to oppose the government, but were ultimately crushed by the South Korean army.

American-top1% and military-industry have been making money by exploiting democratization and something-somthing-spiring and by squeezing American-99%!

And, Japs are colluding with American-top1% and military-industry!

NSA Struggles to Make Sense of Flood of Surveillance Data
December 26, 2013
William Binney, creator of some of the computer code used by the National Security Agency to snoop on Internet traffic around the world, delivered an unusual message here in September to an audience worried that the spy agency knows too much.
It knows so much, he said, that it can’t understand what it has.
“What they are doing is making themselves dysfunctional by taking all this data,” Mr. Binney said at a privacy conference here.

They've got something else going for them. We owe them more than a trillion dollars. George W. Bush was the first president in our history who borrowed from Communist Chinese banks. He had to have it to pay for his unfunded oil war. The Iraq fiasco will go down in history as the most stupid and most unnecessary war America has ever started.

Syrian Groups Try to Recruit U.S. Travelers

WASHINGTON — Islamic extremist groups in Syria with ties to Al Qaeda are trying to identify, recruit and train Americans and other Westerners who have traveled there to get them to carry out attacks when they return home, according to senior American intelligence and counterterrorism officials.

"Another American, Eric G. Harroun, a former Army soldier from Phoenix, was indicted in Virginia by a federal grand jury last year on charges related to allegations that he fought alongside the Nusra Front, one of the Syrian opposition groups linked to Al Qaeda. In September, he pleaded guilty to a lesser charge involving conspiracy to transfer defense articles and services, and was released from custody."

I can't believe it! This guy was my translator! We even talked about how nice downtown Phoenix was looking these days.

Its not our "leaders" that are the main drivers here. That is what the sheeple here argue over 99% of the time but with our WAR departments; and we have sooo many now, these are not elected positions. They are also not appointed by elected officials. Sure, the heads of these agencies are but those people come and go pretty quickly compared to the other people at the top in these agencies who will reside in these positions long after the current president is gone. Many have been there since before the current president even got there.
Point here being is there are policies being carried out that have been in place long before any sitting president gets the oval office, and will continue long after any current president is gone. These people are not elected, do not report to, and are not accountable to the people of the US.
It is these polices that help keep us in continual war.
Sure there is much more, but this is one of the most look over facets. You also have the vast military complex rife with bloated spending. The use of private contractors which continually bloat the price of the whole scheme. You also have the current surveillance state which would not be possible without these private contractors which gives the gov even more power to oppress its population. And you need a boogeyman (terrorism) to keep everyone scared and justify these freedom killing policies.
I could go on but topix only gives me so many characters...
