McCain: If Iraqis Are Dying The War Is Fine

McCain: Permanent Presence In Iraq Is Fine As Long As Iraqis Are The Ones Dying

We posted a video of Senator John McCain saying he’d be ok with the U.S. being in Iraq for 100 years, and during his appearance on Meet The Press this morning, McCain stood by that statement and was absolutely giddy about President Bush’s surge.

As long as Americans aren’t being wounded or killed, and it’s the Iraqis who are fighting and dying, McCain believes that Americans are just fine with the United States having permanent bases there, and keeping a large military presence all over the world. He also points out that the Saudis didn’t want our base in their country, but it’s worth noting that Bin Laden was angered by our presence there as well — but according to the Republicans in last night’s debate, terrorism has nothing to do with American foreign policy.

McCain: ” It’s not American presence that bothers the American people, it’s American casualties, and if Americans are safe wherever they are in the world, American people don’t mind that. So, what I believe we can achieve is a reduction in casualties to the point where the Iraqis are doing the fighting and dying, we’re supporting them, and over time then there will be the relation between the two countries.”

Isn’t that what’s been happening for the past four years?


McCain: Iraq War Fine With Or Without WMDs

Raw Story
January 7, 2008

According to presidential candidate John McCain, only the handling of the Iraq war was a mistake — not the war itself.

“It’s not American presence that bothers the American people, it’s American causalities,” said McCain in an interview with Tim Russert on NBC’s “Meet The Press” on Sunday.

The validity of this conjecture is questionable, as fifty-nine percent of Americans say the U.S. should “stick to a withdrawal timetable.” But McCain said in a recent New Hampshire debate — and reasserted as much on Sunday — that as long as Americans aren’t dying, he sees nothing wrong with US troops staying as many as 100 years in Iraq.

“What I believe we can achieve is a reduction in casualties to the point where the Iraqis are doing the fighting and dying [and] we’re supporting them,” McCain said.

He said it would be “hard to say” how many U.S. troops would need to stay in Iraq, but assured that they would be “out of harm’s way.”

When Russert asked him if, like Bush, McCain would have supported the Iraq war even if no weapons of mass destruction were believed present in Iraq, McCain seemed to dismiss the question as irrelevant.

“If frogs had wings … we can talk about lots of hypotheticals,” he said. “The point is if we had done it right, you and I wouldn’t even be discussing it now.”
