Kerry Says He Will Repair Damage [Kerry writes Islamic Republic's English Newspaper]
Tehran Times ^ | 2/8/04 | Tehran Times

Posted on 02/08/2004 1:14:42 PM PST by freedom44

WASHINGTON (Mehr News Agency) -- The office of Senator John Kerry, the frontrunner in the Democratic presidential primary in the U.S., sent the Mehr News Agency an e-email saying that Kerry will try to repair the damage done by the incumbent president if he wins the election. The text of the e-mail follows.

As Americans who have lived and worked extensively overseas, we have personally witnessed the high regard with which people around the world have historically viewed the United States. Sadly, we are also painfully aware of how the actions and the attitudes demonstrated by the U.S. government over the past three years have threatened the goodwill earned by presidents of both parties over many decades and put many of our international relationships at risk.

It is in the urgent interests of the people of the United States to restore our country's credibility in the eyes of the world. America needs the kind of leadership that will repair alliances with countries on every continent that have been so damaged in the past few years, as well as build new friendships and overcome tensions with others.

We are convinced that John Kerry is the candidate best qualified to meet this challenge. Senator Kerry has the diplomatic skill and temperament as well as a lifetime of accomplishments in field of international affairs. He believes that collaboration with other countries is crucial to efforts to win the war on terror and make America safer.

An understanding of global affairs is essential in these times, and central to this campaign Kerry has the experience and the understanding necessary to successfully restore the United States to its position of respect within the community of nations. He has the judgment and vision necessary to assure that the United States fulfills a leadership role in meeting the challenges we face throughout the world.

The current Administration's policies of unilateralism and rejection of important international initiatives, from the Kyoto Accords to the Biological Weapons Convention, have alienated much of the world and squandered remarkable reserves of support after 9/11. This climate of hostility affects us all, but most especially impacts those who reside overseas. Disappointment with current U.S. leadership is widespread, extending not just to the corridors of power and politics, but to the man and woman on the street as well.

We believe John Kerry is the Democrat who can go toe-to-toe against the current Administration on national security and defense issues. We also remain convinced that John Kerry has the best chance of beating the incumbent in November, and putting America on a new course that will lead to a safer, more secure, and more stable world.

Kerry is receiving support from the Iranian government in his bid for Presidency. It's rather disgusting that his office felt the need to send an e-mail to the Iranian governments english language paper.

Well, Kerry's got a lock on the Islamist vote. That ought to tell the rest of his supporters something. But I won't hold my breath waiting for them to wake up and smell the coffee.

Disgraceful. Do you remember during impeachment, when the Republicans questioned the timing of Clinton's bombing of Iraq, and the Rats whined that politics stops at the water's edge? Here this sleaze is writing to another country's newspaper and denigrating the current Commander-in-Chief. It's a new low.

Iranians aren't arabs, but the government officials are definitely terrorists.

What's even more disturbing is that this comes at a time of constant demonstrations in Iran for a secular democracy.
What message is that weasel sending to the people of Iran?

And add in the world court to that too no doubt. Bush is turning out to be one lucky son of Gun. Because of this sicko Kerry...Many of us that were not intending to vote for him are going to be FORCED to. Bush only has Kerry to thank for that. He sure has no claim to being a conservative.

Doesn't matter to them. I have been watching DU lately and the question came up about do we care about qualifications and the answer was a big resounding no! Anybody but Bush. But you are referring to Independents and dissatisfied Repubs. If they continue to listen to the media who will cover this up, it won't matter.

The tv ad I'd love to see.........

An interior view of a standard voting booth with Kerry and Bush levers in plain sight.
A hand pulls down the Kerry lever and moves to the curtain-opening, vote-casting large lever.
Move to an exterior of the booth as a bearded and turbaned Osama look-a-like emerges with a big smile and a nod.
After a few seconds the focus zooms in to the iris of one eye to a view of the World Trade Towers smoking and on fire.

Democrats have employed fear and hate against Republicans for decades.

This ad is payback.

I posted the story in a local group and allready got my first liberal response...er excuse.

here it is

"Did you read the story you posted? You may disagree that George W. Bush's foreign policy is one of unilateralism and division, but John Kerry is not "appealing to extremism" by suggesting that multilateralism and cooperation is an important component of foreign policy."

Kerry Says He Will Repair Damage If He Wins Election


WASHINGTON (Mehr News Agency) -- The office of Senator John Kerry, the frontrunner in the Democratic presidential primary in the U.S., sent the Mehr News Agency an e-email saying that Kerry will try to repair the damage done by the incumbent president if he wins the election. The text of the e-mail follows.

As Americans who have lived and worked extensively overseas, we have personally witnessed the high regard with which people around the world have historically viewed the United States.

squandered remarkable reserves of support after 9/11

I'm always slightly amused when I hear this phrase and sentiment from libs. They seem to recognize that world support for America is usually pretty thin and fleeting. So after 9-11, when we got some, they want to depostit it all into a "support savings account" to be drawn on over a long period of time. Milk it for all it's worth. Seemingly not to realize (although deep down I think they just don't want to acknowlege) that if such support is so easily "squandered" it didn't run very deep in the first place.

More pander, more rump kissing to the UN and world community from Kerry.

Follow the money...

1996 : (SENATOR JOHN KERRY MEETS LIU CHAOYING, VP OF A SUBSIDIARY OF CHINA'S GOVERNMENT OWNED CHINA AEROSPACE CORP & DAUGHTER OF A CHINESE MILITARY OFFICIAL, TRADES FAVORS FOR CASH, PLUS CHINA GETS MISSILE TECHNOLOGY) In 1996 Kerry met with Liu Chaoying, the daughter of a powerful Chinese military official who also doubled as vice president of a subsidiary of the state-owned China Aerospace Corp. Before the meeting, held in Kerry's Senate office, Liu's sponsor, Johnny Chung, made clear she was interested in getting her company listed on the U.S. Stock Exchange. The Democratic presidential front-runner was only too happy to oblige and ordered his aides to contact the Securities and Exchange Commission. "The next day," reports Newsweek, "Liu and Chung were ushered into a private briefing with a senior SEC official." Within weeks, Chung returned the favor, staging a Kerry fund raiser at a Beverly Hills hotel that raked in $10,000 for the senator's re-election campaign. Bank records would later show that Kerry's Chinese campaign cash came from $300,000 in overseas wire transfers sent to Chung on orders from the chief of Chinese military intelligence, Newsweek reports. The money was routed through a Hong Kong bank account controlled by Liu, whose company later benefited from waivers granted by the Clinton administration to the U.S. aerospace giant Loral Corp. As Liu and Chung were lining the pockets of the Democratic Party's political elite, Loral handed over top-secret missile guidance technology to Liu's firm. Liu's China Aerospace used the information to perfect Beijing's fleet of intercontinental ballistic missiles, which before the 1990s could not strike the U.S. By the end of the decade, however, China's ICBMs could reach the entire continental United States with pinpoint accuracy, thanks in part to the senator who says now he can be trusted with America's national security. Chung later testified that before Liu wired him the cash to contribute to prominent Democrats, the chief of Chinese intelligence personally told him: "We like your president. We want to see him re-elected." Apparently, Beijing felt the same way about Sen. John Kerry.- "Kerry Took Cash From Chinese Military Intelligence," by Carl Limbacher, NewsMax, Monday, Feb. 2, 2004

A subsidiary of China Aerospace company, by the way, is: China Precision Machinery Import-Export Corporation {CPMIEC)

The China Precision Machinery Import-Export Corporation {CPMIEC), a member of the New Era (Xinshidai), was established in 1980 to market the M-family of export missiles. It is also responsible for exports of liquid and solid rocket motors, precision machinery, optical equipment, radars and varietious surface-to-surface, shipborne, anti-ship, and tactical missiles. The company was sanctioned by the United States in August 1993 for missile proliferation, following its shipment of M-11 missiles to Pakistan in 1992- Source for above is : fas.org, via http://216.239.37.104/search?q=cache:WX7LUTJ1mgYJ:www.fas.org/nuke/guide/china/contractor/casc_other.htm+pakistan+%22china+aerospace%22&hl=en&ie=UTF-8

And speaking of Kerry's little Chinese donation mentioned above, here's a snippet from a NY times article:

The fund-raiser, Johnny Chung, told investigators that a large part of the nearly $100,000 he gave to Democratic causes in the summer of 1996 -- including $80,000 to the Democratic National Committee -- came from China's People's Liberation Army through a Chinese lieutenant colonel and aerospace executive whose father was General Liu Huaqing, the officials and lawyers said. General Liu was then not only China's top military commander but also a member of the top leadership of the Communist Party. Chung said the aerospace executive, Liu Chao-ying, told him the source of the money. At one fund-raiser to which Chung gained admission for her, she was photographed with President Clinton.
... While the amount described is a tiny part of the $194 million that Democrats raised in 1996, investigators regard the identification of Liu as a breakthrough in their long search for confirmation of a "China Plan." The hunt was prompted by secret telephone intercepts suggesting that Beijing considered covertly influencing the American elections.
... Chung met Liu in June 1996 in Hong Kong. She was not only a lieutenant colonel in the military, but a senior manager and vice president in charge of international trading for China Aerospace International Holdings Ltd., according to the company's 1996 annual report. The company is the Hong Kong arm of China Aerospace Corporation, a state-owned jewel in China's military industrial complex with interests in satellite technology, missile sales and rocket launches. Liu's father, General Liu, was China's senior military officer, and as vice chairman of the powerful Central Military Commission was in charge of China's drive to modernize the People's Liberation Army by selling weapons to other countries and using the hard currency to acquire Western technology. In that role, he oversaw his country's missile deals. In addition to his military role, General Liu was a member of the Standing Committee of the Politburo of the Communist Party, the very top circle of political leadership in China. He retired from his official positions last fall at the time of the Party's 15th Congress.
... In 1991 and 1993 the United States barred all American companies from doing business with two China Aerospace units who had made illegal missile sales to Pakistan. In each instance, Liu was assistant to the president of the sanctioned company.
...Those concerns were front and center in 1996, when General Liu was still in charge of the P.L.A. They included China's sale of missiles to Iran and of nuclear equipment to Pakistan, as well as its own bellicose military maneuvers near Taiwan. - New York Times, May 15, 1998
