The master! Not only written with great style, but absolutely spot on why the war must continue.

<< Readers may recall that I wanted Bush to invade Iraq before the first anniversary of 9/11. >>
Me, flamin' froth-and-foam-flecked, too!
Instead we got big-headed tiny blare [When he wasn't down the Red Sea flagrantly-freeloading off Middle-Eastern dictators] poncing around the globe big-noting, brown-nosing and making like he was the brain and the sophisticate [He was and is a bloody sophist, its for sure] to United States of America's President and Armed-Forces Commander-In-Chief, George Walker Bush's straw chawin' hill-billy.
In return for which bloody charade we gave Soddom and his gang another year to mass-murder and move his munitions and malignant mixtures about the region, gave the un's by that time very-well-brown-nosed one, the Euro-peon Neo-Soviet and moscow's old one and the Canadians enough time to screw another Few Billion Bucks from oil-for-FRaud, had our Man's Army sitting about on its chuff in the Gulf for six months -- got tiny's bunch of clapped out 40, 50 and 60-years-old-gear-equipped, under-paid and ill-fed one-town-garrison soldiers along for the ride.
And may well also get the two johns and the end of Civilization as we know it, to boot!

(Kerry votes against what he believes because he doesn't believe in believing his beliefs. Steyn)
Had President Kerry been in office on 9/11, Ive no doubt there would have been far more UN resolutions, and joint declarations, and beaming faces announcing great progress at Nato summits, and G8, and EU and Apec. But Saddam would still be in power, and so would the Taleban, and no doubt in the latter case, under an agreement brokered by Kerry special envoy Jimmy Carter, Washington would be bankrolling the regime in return for pledges to phase out the terrorist training camps.
Late 2001, early 2002, it seemed like Kerry was frothing at the mouth to take on Iraq, specifying ground troops. What really scares me about the guy is that his messages have been so mixed over the years, I can't predict what his actions might or might not be. I'd feel a hell of a lot more comfortable if I could be sure that Steyn was right, but I can't be. Senator Waffle has been on more sides of an issue than a former governor from Arkansas as been on an intern.

(Which would you bet on? Iraq and Afghanistan? Or Haiti and Kosovo?)
Its a way of nominally continuing the war without being warlike.
That's IT! That's what all the complaining about "unilateralism" and "macho cowboy posturing" and such is about! They know we're at war, they just can't stand all that nasty fighting.

But according to Andrew Sullivan, embracing Kerry in the Sunday Times
Not that there's anything wrong with that (no surprises there) --as long as it stops there and doesn't escalate to:
thats precisely the appeal of Senator Nuance: His basic message to Americans is: lets return to normalcy. The radicalism of the past four years needs tempering. We need to consolidate the nation-building in Iraq and Afghanistan, before any new adventures against, say, Iran....
