Deathbed confession. McCain admits Iraq war a mistake.

via Vox.
Sen. John McCain has made a shocking admission: The Iraq War was a “mistake,” and he’s taking the blame.

In his new memoir, McCain who is battling brain cancer, writes that the Iraq War “can’t be judged as anything other than a mistake, a very serious one, and I have to accept my share of the blame for it,” as Politico reports.

McCain is among the most hawkish Republicans in the Senate and was an ardent supporter of the George W. Bush administration’s decision to go to war with Iraq and a later US troop surge. 
Story here. 

I didn't even read the rest.

All I wanted to do is to see with my own eyes the guy that NEVER SAW A WAR HE DIDN'T LIKE admit that he fucked up.

Strange that it didn't make me feel better.

Dude still has blood on  his hands and while he did suffer as a POW in Vietnam, he inflicted countless pain and suffering on others because of his hawkish views.

To be blunt the guy has pushed for warfare thru out the Middle East and seemed to revel in it.  Am I the only one that heard that "Bomb, bomb, bomb, Iran" diddy he did during his run for the President and felt bile rising to his throat?

How many good men and women died because of his ideology?  How many people I'll never know suffered because of his jacked up belief system?

When you do evil shit, a deathbed confession (or memoir) isn't enough to wash away the stain.

I'm just glad God has to deal with this shit.  If I was running things he'd be in the pit of hell .... but thats emotionalism on my part.  This kind of judgement demands the power and knowledge of the dude sitting on high.
