A War Criminal's deathbed semi-confession isn't being 'honorable'

All the lies and all the liars can't keep the rotten core from emerging.

The Old City of , Iraq, earlier today. Around 100,000 Christians fled the city when ISIS invaded in 2014. Since its liberation last July, 10 Christian families have returned.

The western press has tried so very hard to pretend that Mosul was 'liberated.'  Out of all Christians that fled, only ten families have returned.  We're approximately six weeks shy of a year into 'liberation' of Mosul but it doesn't look like liberation to those who live there.

Hayder al-Abadi was a great leader, the western press said, a shoo-in for re-election.  But the Iraqi people, they felt differently which is why Moqtada al-Sadr's bloc won the election this month.  Strange isn't it, how the press was so wrong and how they were wrong in just the way the US government was.  It's almost as though the independent western press isn't every independent at all.

For more liars, let's note this.

Note to the - this is what honor looks like: In 's own words the Iraq War “can’t be judged as anything other than a mistake, a very serious one, and I have to accept my share of the blame for it."

Is that what honor looks like?

Let's pretend for a moment that is what honor looks like.

Then, by all means, pass it on the 2016 Democratic Party presidential nominee because Hillary Clinton needs to grab some of that honor.  She's never been as forthcoming on Iraq herself -- despite supporting it the same way John McCain did.

Now let's stop pretending that this honor.  If he made the declaration before knifing himself to death, we might consider it some sort of samurai honor. 

But this isn't bushido, is it?

No, it's a deathbed confession.

Criminals make deathbed confessions.

There's nothing honorable about a criminal.

John McCain believes in God and believes he's about to die.  Therefore, as he is on the verge of passing, he's offering something, anything, that he hopes will carry him safely through an afterlife.

This isn't anything honorable.

Honorable would have been using his power all these years to stop the Iraq War.  But he didn't.

Now when he's dying and useless, he tosses out a few words.

Those words are meaningless.

No dead Iraqi, no dead American, is coming back because of those feeble words.

He is a criminal making a deathbed confession. 

Only a whore for the Democratic Party could see that as honorable.

The blood of the innocent will not wash off of him.  He made a decision to support the war, he dies but the war goes on.

He's a criminal and, if his beliefs in God are accurate, he will most likely face a punishment he so well deserves.  His last minute bargaining with God will be seen as a plea arrangement that heaven overturned.

Bye-bye, John McCain, won't miss you a bit.

      Absolutely no reason for the United States to be in any summit with the DPRK, anyway. The world should boycott and sanction the U.S.
    10. Every black person every day.
    11. N.J. Democrats loved the idea of taxing the rich — until they actually could do it Typical. Democrats show their true colors when they actually have a chance to help us.
    12. Vladimir Putin wants to take over America but he's a cheap skate and was only willing to spend $3,202.
    13. Trump will be partially vindicated thanks to democratic party corruption and incompetence.
    14. Why is announcement happening now? Attempt to discredit or to stop altogether being held in Russia and pipeline from Russia to Germany. War propaganda everywhere.

      We did a *lot* of work explaining how Iraq Body Count was recording perhaps 10% of the Iraqi death toll. Philip Cross has seen to it that our work has been disappeared from Wikipedia history. Does anyone believe this is a lone individual simply pursuing his personal interests?
    16. As a Soviet republic Ukraine also had access to Buk missiles. Just saying. Of course we don’t even know if that is really what shot down flight . So much war propaganda.
