A Question For McCain

Tonight I was listening to the news and heard the media laud praise on McCain for his "personal history tour" or whatever the hell he is calling his tour across the country. He made his usual comment about how it would be a terrible tragedy for us to pull out of Iraq now instead of later. The story also pandered to the fact that he was a POW during the Vietnam War. All of a sudden it hit me. The perfect question to ask him. See if you agree.

Senator McCain, you spent five and a half years as a POW in Vietnam enduring a great deal of torture. Here we are 30 years after the war, where if we did not stop Communism RIGHT HERE AND NOW, America would forever live under a Red threat, and we now have normal diplomatic relations with Vietnam. You were freed because the US decided to pull out with the signing of the Paris Peace Accords. The treaty essentially declared a stalemate. The US DID NOT stop communism in Vietnam at the time. So, knowing what we know now, would you have preferred to stay a POW for, say, 2 more years, with, say, 10,000 more US dead, with total US victory, or would you have rather that we signed the treaty, Vietnam remained communist, but you and all of our boys were safe back home?

WHY ISN'T THE MEDIA ASKING HARD HITTING, GET-TO-THE-POINT QUESTIONS LIKE THIS?!?!
