Good Point Lew… McCain is inconsistent.

John McCain, Foreign Policy Expert
Posted by Lew Rockwell at March 25, 2008 08:03 AM
Here’s what he told CNN in 2002:

“I am very certain that this military engagement will not be very difficult. It may entail the risk of American lives and treasure, but Saddam Hussein is vastly weaker than he was in 1991. He does not have the support of his people.

“And I’d ask one question: What member of the Iraqi army is willing to die for Saddam Hussein when they know he’s going to be taken out? So I don’t think it’s going to be nearly as difficult as some assume.” (Thanks to Tim and Notable and Quotable in the Classical Liberal Tradition.)

Interesting to see McCain wondering how many Iraqi soldiers are willing to die for Saddam, while he and the rest of the establishment at least pretend to believe that Iraqi soldiers will be willing to die for Bush, if “trained” (i.e., indoctrinated) sufficiently.
