John McCain Talks Utter Bollocks On Libya: Nation Listens

by | 24th, April 2011

WITH Barack Obama looking confused on Libya, it is left to John McCain to explain to the rest of the world just how rubbish it would have been had he beaten The One and become American President:

“I believe that with sufficient and efficient, sufficient and efficient use of airpower, we can bring Gadhafi to his knees. ”

“It’s ideal terrain and situation for doing so.  Have no doubt, though, that he and his forces are adapting to this situation by hiding in houses and doing various things that prevent the airpower from being so effective.  But I’ll tell you, when you’re flying around at 25,000 feet, it’s pretty hide – it’s pretty easy to hide from them.

Er..?

“But we need to recognize the government as a legitimate voice of the Libyan people so they can have access to the funds that we have frozen of Gadhafi’s. We need to help them with communications, we need to help them with humanitarian assistance.  We need to – my view, would be very helpful if we took out Gadhafi’s television because when the Libyan people see Gadhafi on television it scares them.  This guy is, you know, in the – by the courthouse in Benghazi, there are pictures of the 1,200 people that he had massacred in one day in a prison.  And so we need to, we need to be more helpful, but troops on the ground is out of the question.”

Scary stuff!
