The most bone-chilling political video on youtube!

This is a cross-posting. I posted this yesterday on DailyKos and it was on the rec list for a good part of the day. I was encouraged to repost it regularly and widely.

The video I'm posting here may have been posted in the past. I'm not really sure. A quick search didn't reveal anything.

However...

I think that we are at a different moment of time in this presidential race. I've also posted this video in a few comments on DailyKos and the responses have often been to encourage me to post a diary.

This race is about McCain. About the Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld-Rice quartet of horror.

The Republican convention ran on an agenda of fear-mongering, "POW POW POW", lies, Iraq, war, stealing the change mantra, and lastly, the POW-Palin ticket. Dems have run on change and hope.

So I thought since the Republicans stole change, we ought to steal fear.

Why?

Because, unlike the Republicans, we actually havea lot to be afraid of!

And to prove this, I'm reposting the most bone-chilling 5-minute video about the war-mongering McCain out there.

For those who would rather have the link, or wish to email it (this does need to go viral), here are the links:

The last count as I was writing this was  387,108 views. I really think it needs to be seen by millions!

And here is the video:

Warning for parents: Some of the images in the video may not be suitable for young children!
 


 

Here's a transcript of some of what what Scott Ritter had to say in the video:

My concern is that we will use nuclear weopons to break the backbone of Iranian resistance, and it may not work. But what it will do is this: It will unleash the nuclear genie.
[snip]
And if we use nuclear weapons, the genie ain't going back into the bottle, until an American city is taken out by an Islamic weapon in retaliation!
 

So tell me: You want to go to war with Iran? Pick your city! Pick your city! Tell me which one you want gone! Seattle, LA, Boston, New York, Miami... Pick one! 'Cause at least one's going! And that's something we should all think about before we march down this path of INSANITY!

This Ad Has Been Around Awhile, But

This just makes all the more clear how well a daisy-style ad would work. Take away the gruesome images, keep the footage of Scott Ritter, keep the quotes about McCain. Palin only made this that much more effective.

One ad aired just once. Major national ad buy during some major national show like Desperate Housewives. Something where most kids won't be watching. Don't announce it until the day of or day before. Don't make it too graphic because you don't want to piss people off any more than you have to. Just state your case outright, that we are at war and this is not the time for a leader who makes decisions on a whim or a backup that has a fundamental ignorance about the world.

"Pick Your City" should be the refrain from it, though. That sends chills down the spine, and it's really hard to forget.
