The media rushed to McCainâ€™s side to shower him with love and affection after he told an audience that heâ€™d be happy to stay in Iraq for 100 years. Heâ€™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 Iraqiâ€™s should die in the process too. Not that they seem to matter in his mind. Heck, itâ€™s only their country.
Over 60% of America believes it was a bad idea to invade them even after the Petraeus Propaganda Show. In the latest ABC/WaPo poll 56% of Americans believe we should get out of Iraq even after the media blitz on â€œthe surge.â€
"Do you think the United States should keep its military forces in Iraq until civil order is restored there, even if that means continued U.S. military casualties; OR, do you think the United States should withdraw its military forces from Iraq in order to avoid further U.S. military casualties, even if that means civil order is not restored there? 56% withdraw 41& Keep forces in"
Thereâ€™s no spin here. Their efforts to control the message has not worked. Vote McCain and youâ€™ll get more of the same. Itâ€™s that simple.
