McCains statement is made for the same reason we got dragged into the Bush/McCain immoral/illegal war, Cultural Illiteracy.
If Westerners were still in Vietnam the Vietnamese people would stillbe killing the Western occupiers and the Vietnamese are not religiousfanatics. Do you remember the Western Israel/Palestine war? is it over?were we just attacked on 911. Only a Culturally Illiterate mad man would plan on occupying Arab land for 100 years and not know that they would be killing the occupiers everyday of the 100 years.
Bush says 50, McCain ups him 50, do I hear 150 absolute madness.
