Responding to a student who had criticized his 100-year remark, McCain added, “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.”
If no American argues against maintaining bases all over the world, then what are we – is this like “with us or against us“?
And then he goes on to say:
Maybe 100. As long as Americans are not being injured or harmed or wounded or killed, it’s fine with me, and I hope it would be fine with you, if we maintain a presence in a very volatile part of the world where al-Qaida is training, recruiting, equipping and motivating people every single day.
So, if Americans are still dying in a few years, McCain will cut and run?
Finally, McCain adds,
[The US] will win the war in Iraq and win it fairly soon.
But hasn’t the war already been declared over?
