Barack Obama’s Rhetoric On John McCain’s 100 Years War

Questioner: President Bush has talked about our staying in Iraq for fifty years…McCain: Maybe a hundred. Make it one hundred. We’ve been in South Korea, we’ve been in Japan for sixty years. We’ve been in South Korea for fifty years or so. That’d be fine with me as long as Americans are not being injured or harmed or wounded or killed. Then it’s fine with me. I would hope it would be fine with you if we maintain a presence in a very volatile part of the world where Al Qaeda is training, recruiting, equipping and motivating people every single day.

Says Barack Obama:

 We are bogged down in a war that John McCain now suggests might go on for another hundred years.”

And: “(McCain) says that he is willing to send our troops into another hundred years of war in Iraq.”

Well, that’s not quite what he said, is it..?
