Speaking about the need to confront Iran, John McCain said in 2006, “If the price of oil has to go up, then that’s a consequence we would have to suffer.” Matt Duss responds, “So, to sum up: War John McCain supports waging indefinitely = regional destabilization = increased oil prices = higher revenues for regimes John McCain wants to contain. It would be great if he understood these consequences.”
