MCCAIN: Iraq is peaceful and stable country now

From Think Progress

Here are some examples (from just this month) of McCain’s so-called “peaceful and stable” Iraq:

– August 9: A suicide car bomb in Tal Afar killed at least 25 people.

– August 24: A suicide bomber killed 25 people, including women and children, in Baghdad’s Abu Ghraib district.

– August 27: A suicide bomber killed 28 and wounded 45 in Iraq’s Diyala province.

Moreover, while U.S. troop deaths in Iraq reached their lowest point since the beginning of the war last month, they are on the rise again. According to, 20 U.S. military personnel have been killed so far this month in Iraq — up from 13 in July.

But this isn’t the first time McCain’s assessment of the security situation in Iraq has been off. Last May he said the northern city of Mosul was “quiet” despite the fact that a car bomb had killed three and wounded nine there the very same day.

Probably more peaceful and the infrastructure wasn't blown up. People has electricity and running water all the time. How many innocent people has the US killed now? I bet ten times more than Sadam.
