    John McCain Wants To "Bomb Bomb Bomb Iran" 

Mentally Disturbed Senator John McCain Thinks War Is Funny

Senator John McCain, a tireless defender of the failed Iraq war, is well known for his "maverick" straight talkin' ways. In fact, the Arizona Republican and 2008 Presidential candidate travels the country in a campaign bus emblazoned with the words "The Straight Talk Express". On April 19, 2007, McCain was addressing an audience in South Carolina, and briefly serenaded the crowd with a song expressing his profound ignorance and hatred for peace, diplomacy and the Iranian people. 

Responding to an audience member's question about when the U.S. would finally bomb Iran, McCain began to sing the opening chorus to a filthy anti-Iranian song which first debuted during the hostage crisis. Sung to the tune of the Beach Boys' "Barbara Ann", the song goes "Bomb, Bomb Bomb Bomb Bomb Iran" (a takeoff on the original chorus Ba Ba Ba Ba Barbara Ann, its rhyme scheme relies on the common mispronunciation of Iran as "eye-ran". 

McCain and the audience shared giggles over his rendition of the tune [YouTube video below].

Even if war with Iran were entirely necessary and justified, McCain's callous regard for human life is outrageous and deplorable. Attacking Iran would inevitably result in human casualties from at least 3 countries: Iran, USA and Israel. To make jokes about such horror and death, including the lives of his fellow Americans who will unquestionably die if Iran is attacked, is absolutely beyond the pale.

John McCain is also one of many U.S. representatives who claim to believe that Iran has vowed to destroy Israel. After singing his song of death, McCain then said, "Iran is dedicated to the destruction of Israel. That alone should concern us but now they are trying for nuclear capabilities. I totally support the president when he says we will not allow Iran to destroy Israel". [See "WIPED OFF THE MAP" - The Rumor of the Century for a thorough disassembly of this pernicious lie].

Asked about the vicious comments later that day in a stop in Las Vegas, McCain told reporters that, "My response is lighten up and get a life".

John McCain at the 2008 AIPAC Policy Conference

John McCain told more lies about Iran at a June 2, 2008 AIPAC conference: 

In reality--in reality a series of Administrations have tried to talk to Iran and none harder--none tried harder than the Clinton administration. In 1998 the Secretary of State made a public overture to the Iranians, laid out a road map to normal relations and for two years tried to engage. The Clinton administration even lifted some sanctions and Secretary Albright apologized for American actions going back to the 1950's. But even under President Khatami, a man by all accounts less radical than the current President, Iran rejected these overtures [not true]. Even so, we hear talk of a meeting with the Iranian leadership offered up as if it were some sudden inspiration, a bold new idea that somehow nobody has ever thought of before. Yet itís hard to see what such a summit with President Ahmadinejad would actually gain except an earful of anti-semitic rants and a worldwide audience for a man who denies one Holocaust and talks before frenzied crowds about starting another
