CBS News ^ | 2011-08-23 | David Morgan

Sen. John McCain said that as Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi faces an "inevitable" end, the U.S. should concern itself with helping contain weapons from Qaddafi's arsenal.

"We've got to secure these weapons depots," the Arizona Republican said on CBS' "The Early Show" Tuesday. "that have huge, huge numbers of weapons, and apparently mustard gas and other weapons of mass destruction."

OMG what? You mean this hasn’t been handled?

Total ineptitude. McCain is a fool of the worst kind.

Perhaps Mr. McCain ought to have thought of that before loudly cheerleading for Qaddafi’s overthrow at the hands of a mob largely populated by Muslim radicals. What a bumbling, bloviating idiot this man is! Sadly, that was our choice in the last election: an unrepentant but ill-equipped Marxist vs. a ****ing idiot. Let’s not do that again, shall we?

But, but...he also said popular uprisings across the Arab world signal "a much brighter day" for people who have never known democracy and freedom.

If that's the case, why the worry over securing a bunch of WMDs? Everything's going to be sweetness and light...

McCain also said that Americans had nothing to fear from Obama.

We know how that turned out.

Meaning that when this is over and the dust all settles Obama will be unable to find them.

Irony, the mark of Quality Literature.

Well, after W showed America's determination in Iraq Qaddafi voluntarily surrendered his WMD programs and they were contained -- at least until the partisan hateful dems started doing everything they could to undermine and discredit W at every turn.

Yeah, let’s make sure to grab their nuclear program...

Oh hey! they barfed up the entire thing and shipped it to ORNL when the U.S. was steam rolling Iraq.

Thank you President Bush.

I say we just take off and nuke the whole site from orbit; it's the only way to be sure.
