Skip to comments.McCain: Iran situation a 'train wreck'

U.S. Sen. John McCain says he is disappointed with his party's presidential candidate for sidestepping world affairs in his campaign for the White House, but reserves his most scathing words for the current dweller, blaming Barack Obama for inaction while the situation in Syria and elsewhere "cries out for American leadership."
In an interview with The Associated Press in Italy on Saturday, the 2008 Republican presidential candidate criticized the man who won that election for not aiding rebels in Syria, abandoning Iraq and Afghanistan, and delaying tough decisions on Iran's nuclear program.
"In a way it's almost like watching a train wreck," he said of the apparent failure to stem Iran's nuclear efforts.

This guy never knows when enough is enough
If only that little NVA surface-to-air missile guy had been a better shot, and spared America the following 35 years of treason, insanity and duplicity.
McCain knows that.
Obama may have an affiliation with the Shi'ites, although it's pretty clear by now he doesn't care what happens to Christians in the Middle East.
McCain remains the only ex-military man I know who is ready to commit American forces at the drop of a hat -- before he even knows which side they should be on. If either...
I applaud his military service. But, as for his subsequent public service, I'm inclined to believe the country would've been better off without him.
STFU, McLame.....Worst, candidate ever.
I’m inclined to believe the country would’ve been MUCH better off without him.
I can respect that point-of-view. I voted for the SOB in 2008...but it was, by far, the most distasteful vote I've ever cast.
In contrast, it will be much easier to vote for Romney this time around than it was for McCain in 2008.
Last guy I want to heed is old “face down, butt up McCain”
Terrible pilot too.
Well John, you more or less supported the guy for election.
He did say we had “nothing to fear from an Obama Administration”.
I will repeat myself, “STFU, McLame!”
Where were such attacks four years ago?
McCain wants to help the Muslims kill off the Christians.
John - when the gray headed woman at the rally in 2008 asked you point blank if there was ANYTHING TO FEAR from Barack Hussein Obama as President of the United States; you hemmed and hawed and endorsed Obama (a totally unqualified FRAUD). NOW you tell us, a day late and a dollar short. Such a courageous pronouncement, but, spare me.
I am glad world affairs are taking a back seat. The deficit, economy, and tyranny at home are the pressing issues. We don't need to go looking for more.
Romney’s ALREADY being called a war monger.
“McCain: Iran situation a ‘train wreck’”
Hey, Panama Juan....
You are not a train wreck.
You were, though, a plane wreck serval times over.
Don’t be so glad. Plenty of rogue nations (and empires) abroad that are happy that our eye is off them. That said, McCain’s policies on that are not those to be followed.
Funny how the left works. If you’re in the party that they want to Emmanuel-Goldsteinize, even doves are suddenly hawks.
