Sen. John McCain: “It’s time for action. And it’s time to make the Iranians understand that this kind of violation of international treaties, this kind of threatening of their neighbors, this kind of continued military activity, is
not without cost.”
After Iran’s recent long-range missile tests, presumably in response to all the Bush government rhetoric about that evil country’s presumed intentions, Republican presidential candidate John McCain came up with this convincing response.
Hmm. Let’s see. What if we inserted another world leader as the author of the quote, referring to (gasp!) the United States?
Violation of international treaties… Geneva anyone? Others include:
- Laws and Customs of War on Land (Hague IV)
- U.N. General Assembly Resolution 3314
- Nuremberg Tribunal Charter
- 1972 Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention
Threatening their neighbors…. how about countries all around the globe, from Latin America to Asia to ?
Continuing military activity… Iraq, Chile, Venezuela, Afghanistan, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Grenada, Haiti, Fiji, Liberia, Chad, South Korea…
