McCain wants U.S. troops out NOW . . . from Haiti

(In 1994.) But they can stay "100 years" in Iraq? (See my post here.) We invaded Haiti to restore a democratically elected president to power. We invaded Iraq on the basis of George Bush's lies, because Saddam Hussein "tried to kill my dad." 3932 Americans have died and 28,938 have been seriously wounded in Iraq as a result, along with tens of thousands of civilians. (Not to mention that 4 million Iraqis have been displaced from their homes.) And, not only is the war not cheap but apparently doable ($2 billion a week--roughly the cost of a universal health care plan in the U.S.), but American taxpayers have been cheated out of more billions by Bush's war-profiteering cronies (see Alan Grayson post below and follow the links).

Seen at Alan Colmes' new website (which I found out about at AmericaBlog, which he cites for this video. I hadn't seen it before.).
