No no no no! McCain the imperialist.

Al-Pazeera (aka the AP) reports thusly:

KABUL, Afghanistan - The United States needs permanent military bases in Afghanistan (news - web sites) to protect its "vital national security interests" in the region, Arizona Sen. John McCain (news, bio, voting record) said Tuesday after talks with the Afghan president.

Wow, as it stands now there are way too many people in the world who paint our actions in Afghanistan as a loot and pillage mission. McCain's comment is only going to reinforce that notion.

Shame on you Senator McCain.
