The Johns of War

Over the past few days, several prominent American politicians have lobbied for a no-fly zone to be enforced over Libya. In response, here is White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley:
"Lots of people throw around phrases of 'no-fly zone' and they talk about it as though it's just a game, a video game or something."
The answer is so appropriate, no further commentary is necessary here. But hey, there is never a bad time to recite the Warmonger Roll Call (abridged):

John "Hoar of War" Kerry: "[We should] prepare a no-fly zone in conjunction with our allies, not implement it." (Right. I am going to put a glob of toothpaste on my toothbrush and patiently stand in front of the wash basin, not brush.)

John "War Shrill" McCain: "This would send a signal to Gadhafi that President [Obama] is serious when he says we need for Gadhafi to go."

Ladies and gentlemen, if you have ever wonder why ~ 100,000 people were needlessly killed in Iraq, remember it was because of people like these.
