Typically, the GOP will muck things up and leave it someone else to clean up a horrible mess. Nevertheless, McCain wants to keep US troops in permanent bases in Iraq for ”hundreds of years”, possibly 10,000 years and concedes that an Iraqi insurgency will likely continue for “go on for years and years and years.”
…the war will be over soon, the war for all intents and purposes although the insurgency will go on for years and years and years. But it will be handled by the Iraqis, not by us.
It’s doubtful, therefore that the Iraqi people –left the pile of dung dumped on their country by Bush and his gang of GOP fascists –will be grateful for the US leaving them a war which McCain says may go on for hundreds of years after the US packs up and gets out. It is doubtful that the Iraqi people will be grateful to the US for attacking Iraq upon a pack of proven, malicious lies.
A cadre of idiots around Bush had envisioned US troops being greeted as liberators. Just as that did not happen, you can bet Iraqis will not bid teary-eyed farewells to the likes of Blackwater, the perverts of Abu Ghraib, the mass murderers of Countless My Lai Massacres in Iraq
The BBC has uncovered new video evidence that US forces may have been responsible for the deliberate killing of 11 innocent Iraqi civilians.The video appears to challenge the US military’s account of events that took place in the town of Ishaqi in March.The US said at the time four people died during a military operation, but Iraqi police claimed that US troops had deliberately shot the 11 people.A spokesman for US forces in Iraq told the BBC an inquiry was under way.The new evidence comes in the wake of the alleged massacre in Haditha, where US marines are suspected of killing up to 24 Iraqi civilians in November 2005 and covering up the deaths.

McCain’s stupid rationalization, lipstick on a pig, describes the seeds that have been sown. From those seeds will sprout more hatred of the United States lasting generations, perhaps McCain’s one “hundred years”. But –faced with an election –McCain in effect tells Iraqis, “uh…yeah..we…uh…screwed up your..uh…your country…but ..uh…there is little more that we can do …so…uh..lottsa luck. Uh …can we take that discount on oil now?”
John McCain recently admitted that because of the war, he just might lose the election. Are we to interpret that to mean that the GOP has abandoned plans to steal it? Stealing elections is bad enough but what the GOP did with stolen power is reason enough to deny them power. Clearly –McCain’s comments are proof that among the GOP rank and file there is no remorse for Bush’s official crimes, nothing has been learned. This party has been overtaken by events and public consciousness and just as surely: the GOP just does not get it! It is ironic that while the GOP has learned nothing, it has taught us that those who desire power most must surely be denied it. Forever after, this power mad party will be denied the public’s trust. The survival of the US as a nation may depend upon showing the GOP the door and barring it securely upon their ignominious exit.
