100 Years

I've read the numerous attempts by conservatives and mainstream journalists to complain that somehow people are being mean and unfair to Huggy Bear by taking his "100 years" comment "out of context" or "distorting it" or whatever. For the life of me I don't understand what their complaint is. His point was perfectly clear, that he's happy to stay in Iraq as long as it takes to "win" and then he's happy to stay there even longer.

They could perform some actual journalism by asking him just how long Americans should keep getting killed in Iraq, just how much taxpayers' money he's willing to spend or how many American lives should be lost in Iraq just so we can get to the point when no more American lives are being lost in Iraq.
