On the Iraq war, Mr. McCain took a long, if not limitless, view: “Could be 1,000. Could be 1,000 years or a million years.” At another point, he said: “A thousand years. A million years. Ten million years.”
As long as it takes to completely destroy an economy, demolish infrastructure, remain astonishingly ignorant about Middle Eastern culture and Islam, and mismanage the trillions of dollars we are spending to do so at the the expense of acheiving universal healthcare, daycare, and equal rights for all.
I guess its a relief that he will be around that long to oversee these efforts, assuming his maintenance schedules remain consistent.
