John McCain's Recipe for a Police State

Steve Benen at Thecarpetbagger report has an excellent article up here

Essentailly, Benen asserts, "if you've got a problem, John McCain's got a surge" for you. McCain now thinks that since he knows so much about how to "win wars," that he can apply it to everything else. For example,

ABC News’ David Wright reports: Answering a question at the Urban League about his approach to combating crime, John McCain suggested that military strategies currently employed by US troops in Iraq could be applied to high crime neighborhoods here in the US.

Yeh, that's just what we need back hone. Not that it was needed in Iraq either. They didn't have WMD,. remember. Iraq hadn't really threatened us, remember. That's little comfort concerning the US legacy in Iraq. But imagine bringing house-to-house combat to a neighborhood near you. Barricade the doors. John McCain is coming!
