Even though Obama decided we should bomb Iraq and drop some humanitarian supplies to help the Yazidis, it hasn't been enough bombing for John McCain. As usual, he wants more military might 'cause that will, you know, fix everything over in the Middle East.

John McCain wants us to bomb Iraq, and Syria, and maybe Iran and North Korea while we're at it. It seems there is no problem so complex that it can't be solved by dropping a large number of 500-pound bombs from the air—maybe even some bunker busters and depleted uranium, just to make sure things get all peaceful and stuff!

Sure, McCain has a moving backstory as a POW in Vietnam, but does he really need to be given a continual platform as a foreign policy and military guru? You'd think a guy who was so wrong about a thing or two would be a little more cautious, but apparently not. Enjoy the cartoon, and be sure to check out the stories behind the cartoon here.

From the brilliant strategic mind of renowned historian and policy theorist, John McCain, comes . . .

Bomb It!  Fun for the whole family!  Ages three and up.

If you've got an intractable foreign policy problem, John McCain knows what to do . . .  Bomb It!

Bomb it anytime!  Anywhere!

If you're already bombing it, heh, you're probably not bombing it enough, so . . . Bomb It some more!

Don't be fooled by that sissy "pinprick" bombing, Bomb It, like a real American!

As seen on TV, Bomb It is great for punditry and guarantees lots of news show air time!

Bomb It means boots . . . on the ground, that is!

These airstrikes don't call in themselves, you know!  How 'bout some of our boys on the ground to make Bomb It even better!

It's time for the real power of Bomb It-- because when you bombed it before, things got a little out of hand, and now the bad guys have the weapons our boots-on-the-ground left behind last time!

So, Bomb It!  Again!  And again!

Bomb It here!  Bomb It there!

There's nothing that can't be fixed with a little Bomb It!

Instantly bomb away memories of earlier bombers with Bomb It!

History is so history!

Whether you're a Republican, Democrat, or not quite sure-- put a little muscle in your might with Bomb It!

John McCain's done the thinking so you don't have to!

Bomb It more!  Bomb It often!  Just Bomb It!

Ages three and up, some dissembly required.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
