"Do you now have a better estimate of when American forces can come home from Iraq?" Matt Lauer.
"No, but that's not too important," John McCain said. "What's important is casualties in Iraq. Americans are in South Korea. Americans are in Japan. American troops are in Germany. That's all fine."
But, no the government isn't into the Imperial Empire Business. Because we don't keep territory. Nope! Never have! Never ever!
The lie that America isn't an Empire is one that continues to be sold to every generation. Read the disgusting comments by Marine General John Kelly,
"We as Americans can be proud of the kind of people we are as we have never retained a square foot of any country we have defeated. We possess no empire. No man or woman call us master, as we have never subjugated any society."Yeah, tell it to the Marines.
HOT DAMN! I figured out why McCain doesn't want to leave Iraq ever! It comes from the Johnny Comes Marching Home lyrics:
And we'll all feel gay when Johnny comes marching home
As we all know teh gay scares warmongering republicans more than Islamfascism.
