Waterloo - couldn’t escape if I wanted to

The US is opposed to the war in Iraq:
"Do you favor or oppose the U.S. war in Iraq?"

John McCain loves him some war in Iraq:
John McCain believes the current force structure and power vacuum persisting in many areas of the country demands a more robust counterinsurgency strategy. Iraqi and American forces must not only use force to clear areas occupied by insurgents but to stay and hold these areas to deny them as a base for insurgent forces and allow economic and political development to occur in a secure environment.


The US doesn't like Guantanamo:
Has the prison system at Guantanamo Bay helped or hurt the United States in its fight against al-Qaeda?
87% Hurt 13% Helped

Mitt Romney says he loves him some Guatanamo:
My view is we ought to double Guantanamo.

And yet these are the guys who are winning in the Republican primaries?

It's like watching lemming run over the cliffs: sad, yet inevitable.
