100 Years Without Solitude

McCain must be gullible or he thinks we are naive.

Trying to backtrack from his 100 years of war in Iraq statement he defends his statement at a town hall meeting at Rice University.

“No American argues against our military presence in Korea or Japan or Germany or Kuwait or other places, or Turkey, because America is not receiving casualties,” he said. “I think, generally speaking, we have a more secure world thanks to American presence, particularly in Asia, by the way, as we see the rising influence of China. But the key to it is American casualties, America’s most precious asset, and that is American blood.”

And there you have in a nutshell why we have the problems we are having in Iraq today.  Iraq is not Japan or Korea.  Dissidents aren’t going to sit around and let our little Air Force Base, Army base or whatever militia we send in there sit unmolested.   And if you think otherwise let me point you to what was said by the Bush administration at the beginning of the war of how Iraqis would great us.

If we stay it’s going to be war so why doesn’t he just say it?
