John McCain wants everybody to know that just because American troops will remain in Iraq for somewhere between 100 and 10,000 years, the war is also going to end soon, although it "will go on for years and years and years."
When he says things like that, it makes my brain hurt…
"My friends, the war will be over soon … for all intents and purposes, although the insurgency will go on for years and years and years," the Arizona senator said. "But it will be handled by the Iraqis, not by us."
On a previous episode of The Middle East According Mack, he reminded us that…
"We've been in Japan for 60 years," he said. "We've been in South Korea for 50 years or so. That would be fine with me, as long as Americans are not being injured or harmed or wounded or killed."
So, American troops will remain in Iraq and fighting will continue for possibly decades, but the American troops won't be involved. They'll just be watching from the pool side and drinking margaritas. Or something.
