What's McCain thinking?

May 3, 2013 

Every time Sen. John McCain opens his Republican mouth he sounds like a warmonger. Now he wants President Obama to go to war with Syria. Haven't we had enough war in Iraq and Afghanistan? If McCain thinks we have not, he should leave the Senate, put on a military uniform, grab combat gear and rifle, and go into combat himself. I guess being a POW in North Vietnam wrecked his brain. I am glad he lost the presidency in 2008.
