    John McCain's Son To Head To Iraq With USMC

    It's in the NYTimes:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/04/06/us...FfsHDvorc0QQoA

    I don't know who's cooler, his son for not using his dad's influece to get a cushy job ala George W or Senator McCain for not using his son as a campain poster.

    God's speed, young man.

    Axx, not to rain on your parade, the fact this is being announced is no accident. This kid IS a campaign tool right now. By the time the election rolls around he WILL be out of Iraq. The Secret Service can't protect him in a war zone. It'll be a Prince Harry security issue.

    You really think McCain is going to keep his son over there?? I can't even see Hillary or Obama allowing him to stay.

    He'll go for a bit, but then be removed from the war zone. His going to Iraq is going to fall right in to the war supporters cheers about McCain's boy being there and not Chelsea, etc...

    No WAY the USMC is going to allow the boy to stay in a hot zone if McCain's The President.

    I have to disagree. I did NOT vote for McCain in the primary, but I guarantee this is NOT a publicity stunt. John McCain will NOT even TALK about his kids' service, let alone make it a campaign issue.

    Check into it, then get back to us. He told Sean Hannoty in an interview to change the subject when Hannity (classlessly, I may add), tried to make this a campaign issue. McCain refuses to do so.

    Unless you find McCain or his direct people pushing this, I disagree, respectfully.

    McCain sincerely believes what he believes. And obviously is ready to sacrifice a lot for his ideas. He is a respectable man, no doubt.

    It just so happens that his ideas on the Iraq war are totally wrong.

    I have to agree with this, except for the Iraq thing. Regardless of what we say about going in, we at the very least owe it to those people to finish this crap. Remember, McCain fought Rumsfeld from the beginning on how we have fought this.

    We owe it to which people? The Iraqis? I don't ever remember anyone asking them for their opinion. I mean was there ever a vote over there: A/ The US should stay, B/ The US should go?
    So no one knows what the Iraqi people would prefer, and no one has bothered to ask them. Until we know that's not a reason to stay.

    Now JC Janko, you say we should "finish this crap." Or some other ppl say 'get the job done." But no one DEFINES what this means. If no one defines when the job will be "done" how can we know when to leave? Isn't this an excuse to stay 100 years, like McCain wants? If the job was removing Saddam, the guy's gone, so let's bring the troops home, no?

    Last but not least, people never define what they're ready to pay to get the job done. Like if you had to personally pay $10,000 a year to maintain the troops there, would you? My guess is no. And even though McCain is prepared to give his son, would you?

    Sometimes I'm surprised by how much love some people have for the Iraqis. Ready to sacrifice so much for the well being of Iraq and its people. Unless there's another reason...

    OK JC, I'll go and concede the campaign issue then. I was not aware of him not talking about it. But you'll have to give me the point that if McCain is elected, his son is done in Iraq. McCain as President makes his son Priority Target #1 for any insurgents or terrorist groups. Like with Prince Henry of Britain.

    Regardless of whether it is a campaign tool or not.....the kid is still going. Can't say that for any other Senator or Congressman or person in Government. (That being said I don't know every Senator or Congressman)

    Same thing when everybody talks about McCain being a POW. I'm sure some people use it as a campaign tool.......but.....the fact remains...John McCain was a POW and he can be considered a hero....


    Plus hasn't his son been in the army for quite some time now? I remember hearing about his son and the army and Iraq a couple years ago.

    McCain may have his issues but he will never whore out his son for a political advantage. He was tortured as a POW because he did not take an early release that was offered to him. Nobody can question his devotion or his families devotion to the military.

    Hmm we'll lets see, of course McCain is going to pull his son from iraq after he is elected, its a security issue at that point. No one would allow the possiblity of the son of a nation's leader to out in the open for capture.

    McCain has to be elected first, that's still a long shot.

    Senator Biden's son in in Iraq now serving his country. It can be done, ask Teddy Roosevelt Jr.

    Here's where we agree. We should have all of our troops home from Germany, Korea, and Japan first though. I'm pretty sure those wars are done.

    The 100 year thing may happen in Iraq like it did for those places, as McCain has articulated.

    You're right, and might I add that John McCain was in the same boat when he was captured while his father and grandfather were Admirals in the Navy. So it was a big deal for the North Vietnamese to catch this John McCain, and a much bigger deal if he is the President and his son is in harm's way. They'll keep him out of combat.
