McCain does not realize that Ahmadinajad is great 'buddy' of Obama behind the scenes and calling him 'monkey' will angry Obama. The Iranian foreign Minister Salehi is telling the truth that Obama is hiding from the American people which is Obama new pro-Iranian agenda for the Middle East that approves the Iranian nuke containment and throwing isolated Israel under the bus. The re-election of Obama means green light to the Iranian nuke superpower together with Egypt that Obama converted to Mozlem brotherhood country of Shariya laws that will create new Middle East of the Caliphate with no Jewish state. The nomination of pro-Iranian and Mozlem Brother terrorists of Hezbollah supporter Chuck Hagel as US Defense Secretary is first step to change the US policy in the Middle east and Africa and supporting al Qaida, Hamas, Hezbollah and PLO against Israel. The liberal Democrats of America and the Jewish Elites that financed Obama's re-election hate Israel and love the al Qaida and Hamas terrorists which explain why Senator Chuck Schumer is big supporter of the embarrassing failure Chuck Hagel to become the shrinker of US military and converting the American superpower to new friend of the Iranian regime.

Usual babbling, pre-programmed nonsense from the JeffyBot. Mossad's operators have him back on track and pumping out propaganda 24/7, it appears!

Exactly. McCain did not go far enough. Ahmadinejad is not a cute, cuddly and furry monkey. He is a bloodthirsty, fang-bearing baboon.

Racist, huh? What about all the names Iranian and Saudi authorities routinely call Jews and Christians, like pigs and apes? Only the West is supposed to apologize and be nicey-nicey. Go to hell. What Iran's leader deserves, far from any apology, is a nice fat cruise missile up the wazoo.

VP Biden said there was a possibility of direct talks with Iran. So McCain, in an effort to derail the talks, made some racist joke.
Typical republican.

If what McCain said derails talks, then Iran was never going to talk to begin with.

McCain called Ahmadinejad a Monkey, not the Iranian people. Explain why this is 'racist'.
Let me guess, the shock value is the greatest.

Bogus claim
Was McCain going to be involved in these so called 'negotiations'?
Your claim that my statement is bogus is likewise bogus.
You would find some value in negotiating with the madman Ahmadinejad?
You are further off the deep end than you would dare admit.

It's not open to debate. Calling a member of a different racial and ethnic group whom you don't like a "monkey" is racist.

No one said he called the Iranians monkeys, so save that strawman for someone else.

We've BEEN negotiating with Iran for some time, through various agents. It's always smarter to negotiate to try to find a solution, which is what Hagel has said and why right-wingers have attacked him. They put Israel's interests first, ahead of America's, and don't want a negotiated settlement.

Ahmadinejad, wackjob that he is, is no worse than Netanyahu.

Your childish insults make me laugh, incidentally...:)

Did McCain say he didn't like Iranians EVER?
Calling Democrats Donkey's must also be racist. LOL, talk about a Strawman.

No Professor Fartsack, it IS open to debate because this is NOT a leftist/communist venue where speech is controlled ESPECIALLY by you, you deluded, arrogant ass. You barely control when and where you go to the bathroom.

Negotiations have yielded what?
New higher speed centrifuges?
We are taking Israel's side over Iran's, seems you're on Ahmadinejad' side.
Do you deny the holocaust as well?
Glad to humor you, you're argument makes me laugh.
