Graham and McCain’s peace “train” should roll on.


Egypt does not want McCain and Graham?  How strange.  The new government says it does not want to be interfered with by ajanib (foreigners).  How strange.  Bill Burns, the EU people, the Qataris, etc. have all been made to look foolish and the United States along with them.

It has been a long time since "the music died."  These days it is difficult to hear even a distant echo. 

Having tried so nobly to tell Egypt how to behave it would seem only right that the McCain/Graham peace train should roll on to yet more and even browner pastures.  A bus trip across Sinai and through the territory of their friends would  bring them to Damascus where they could once again work their magic.

A useful extention of their voyage northward would give them a chance to counsel Erdogan and the Ataturk Turks to love one another

And then the road or track will lead east to the Iraq that they did so much to transform.

The Iranians will undoubtedly greet them at the border as peacemakers and they can work out whatever difficulties there may be with President Rouhani and be back home to enjoy the rest of the Summer recess.

    Col. Lang,
    With your permission…

    I bet none of this ever figured in your predictions/wishes for the new millennium back in 2000. I can imagine they involved nothing more than a leisurely bit of hunting, fishing and shooting.

    I don’t think McCain and Graham were what Cat Stevens had in mind when he sang “Peace Train”. The Twit Twins should come home and embarrass us no more.

    I don’t know which would be more appropriate for this pair, a Monty Python animation sequence or a Benny Hill chase scene.

    Perhaps it would be better for us if they did not come home.

    Given their success this deserves a Motown soundtrack; since we all know how Detroit’s doing nowadays.

  9. “How did it come to this?”
    Through a five week straight vacation with play, coupled an unlimited USAF VIP Squadron travel budget (what sequester?) and an abundance of certifiably crazy primary challengers.
    That’s how.

    Maybe we could get McCain and Graham to take up permanent residency in the ME? Make them Honorary Presidents of Jordan and Bahrain?
    Their gain would be our gain…

    Does anybody know about the bulls eye flag in the photo? Kind of Brit WW2ish n’est pas?

  14. turcopolier says:

    those are the flags of the Egyptian armed forces and the nation on the right. The one with the roundel is that of the air force. pl
