War: So Awful He Said It Twice

Apparently much of John McCain's language about how much he hates war was lifted from a 1996 speech by Rear Admiral Timothy Ziemer. Interestingly, back in 1996 McCain didn't love war nearly so much as he has for the past ten or so years. Since that time, though, no matter how much McCain may say he hates war, he also keeps advocating for things like a land invasion of Serbia, war with North Korea, war with Iraq, war with Iran, more troops for Iraq, a ratcheting-up of hostilities with Russia, etc.

UPDATE: And now it seems that perhaps Ziemer was plagiarizing from McCain, and McCain's just been using this sort of language since 1995.
