John McCain Understands Ethnic Conflict

This gem, Via Atrios:
In May of 2006, as Iraq spiraled down into an orgy of sectarian bloodletting, John McCain had a solution. "One of the things I would do if I were president," McCain told a group of wealthy contributors, "would be to sit the Shiites and the Sunnis down and say, 'Stop the bullshit.'"
He then told the Kurds to shut their traps, while he demanded that the Iranians get off his lawn. John McCain has apparently adopted the Abe Simpson foreign policy.


  1. it's weird, you would think that in the thousands of years of war between the two sides someone would have thought of that earlier. and god how I love that picture

  2. dunno, those guys love their bullshit, not sure if one crotchety old man alone will be able to convince them to give it up.

  3. better yet, what's really needed to end an ethnic conflict almost as old as human history is one elderly, AMERICAN man to sit them down and tell them what's what. that oughta do it.
