WHY DO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HATE AMERICA?

Politico reports:
Sen. John McCain continued his blistering attack on President Barack Obama’s handling of Iraq on Friday, again calling for his entire national security team to be replaced and saying his decisions have been very costly.

"The president wanted out and now we are paying a heavy price," the Arizona Republican said on MSNBC....
No, Senator. Not "the president." The country.

Three in Four Americans Back Obama on Iraq Withdrawal

Republicans more likely to disapprove than approve


Americans widely support President Obama's recent decision to withdraw nearly all U.S. troops from Iraq by the end of the year, with 75% approving. That includes the vast majority of Democrats and independents. Republicans, however, are slightly more likely to disapprove than approve.


Oh, and since I know you're going to pull the same diva act eventually with regard to Afghanistan if given half a chance, here are the numbers on that withdrawal:



And, in fact:
Solid majorities of Democrats, Republicans and independents support the decision, although Republicans are significantly less enthusiastic.
So, apart from the members of your party, these were decisions that the American people backed almost universally. So shut the hell up.

McCain led the idiots wanting to "further" the war on fundamentalist terrorists by taking down Iraq, a secular government with a woman and a Christian in the Saddam cabinet, no burksas, and no sharia law. Sure Saddam was a brutal strongman, but nothing but such rule could hold the bitterly divided factions together. Democracy for Iraq was always a joke. But Iraq was a bastion of resistance to our actual enemies, but Cheney wanted Iraq oil, and 9-11 was an excuse. It was inevitable that creating disorder in Iraq would bring horrendous consequences as we may be seeing right now.

What do polls say about American sentiment, today?

I don't recall what they said when Ford asked Congress to send millions in military aid to stop the NVA conquering South Vietnam, and they refused.

@ Unknown, too right. People warned at the time, but the nuts in the White House and all their running dogs weren't listening.

Of course, if McCain had had his way, back in the day, we would still be fighting in Vietnam or we would long since have eradicated the entire Vietnamese people, North and South, rather than just give it up and go home.
