John McCain’s Bomb It! (Video)

Posted on Aug 14, 2014

By Mark Fiore

John McCain is up to his warmongering ways again when it comes to the latest crisis in Iraq, so Mark Fiore has decided to dedicate his latest animation to helping the Arizona senator sell his all-time favorite product: "Bomb It," which is labeled as fun for the whole family and can be used "any time, anywhere" even if it's already been used before with catastrophic results. Watch the laugh-out-loud faux commercial after you read about Fiore's inspiration below.

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.
