11. I disagree - it wasn't taken out of context.

What he said was that it was not important WHEN troops came home, indicating it was only casualties that were important. Do you think families enjoy having their loved ones in Iraq for years on end? McCain cited South Korea and other countries where there have been peaceful contingents of American troops as his reasoning. In locations where there are peace keeping missions, families are usually allowed to accompany the military person to the location. Can you imagine anyone packing up their kids and heading to Iraq for a year or more? It does matter WHEN we pull out the troops. Families shouldn't be apart, American taxpayers are not a bottomless pit and - not even mentioned - it was the U.S. presence on Arab soils that caused the problems in the first place. Don't give McSame a pass on this one.
