The media rushed to McCain’s side to shower him with love and affection after he told an audience that he’d be happy to stay in Iraq for 100 years. He’s tried to say that American casulties are his bench mark. Well sir, how many Americans do you consider expendable in Iraq? And how many Iraqi’s should die in the process too. Not that they seem to matter in his mind. Heck, it’s only their country.
And John McCain says it would be "fine" with him for US troops to stay in Iraq for maybe 100 years.
Too bad a majority of Americans believe otherwise. According to some recent ABC/Washington Post polling data:
- 63% believe that it was a mistake to sent troops to Iraq.
- 64% don't believe the war was worth fighting for.
- 57% don't believe the US is making significant progress in Iraq.
- 56% believe that we should withdraw our military forces from Iraq in order to avoid further US casualties, even if it means civil order is not restored there.
All majorities. All Americans. All against continuing the slaughter of American troops in Iraq.
John McCain wants it to continue.
