WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican John McCain warned Monday that a nuclear-armed Iran would threaten Israel and cautioned that withdrawing troops from Iraq would weaken the entire Middle East as he courted Jewish voters wary of Democrat Barack Obama.

"The threats to Israel's security are large and growing, and America's commitment must grow as well," the likely Republican presidential nominee said in a speech, expressing strong support for a U.S. ally and raised doubts about Obama.

Obama offered the same

Obama offered the same divestment bill in 2007:

We should privatize the sanctions against Iran by launching a worldwide divestment campaign," he said. "As more people, businesses, pension funds, and financial institutions across the world divest from companies doing business with Iran, the radical elite who run that country will become even more unpopular than they are already."
But, as demonstrated by the CNOOC anecdote, if choking off Tehran's economic lifeblood is McCain's goal, he could have personally started down that road years ago -- with his own advisers.

... In 2007, moreover, Obama sponsored an Iran divestment bill that he claimed "would educate investors and pressure foreign companies to reconsider doing business with Iran by requiring the U.S. government to publish - every six months - a list of companies that invest more than $20 million in Iran's energy sector."
It was Alabama Republican Richard Shelby who held up the measure in the Senate in what was described by the Israel paper Haarezt, as "a favor" for the Bush administration. Today, it is still on hold.

Stupid McCain is another GW, with more shit in his head than Hitler even did. Looks like the brain cells(if he had any) stopped working while he was in Prison for his crimes in Vietnam.
