OUCH - this is NOT good for Kerry..............
Kerry WANTS Iraq to be a failure because it would be a bonus in his bucket. He's willing to play dice with millions of lives for a few extra points at the polls. Sick punk.
I hope we see more of these types of speeches from Allawi. Good news from Iraq is good news for America.
That was a powerful speech. I'm so glad for the Internet. We would not have been able to access this if the MSM still ran the show!
As MN Sen. Mark Dayton claims he would boycott this speech....for shame.
Wow!!! What a great speech! So long, Johnny, you girlie-boy...
Are you listening, Senator Kerry? . . .
Brilliant speech from a very courageous man.
PM Allawi gets it.
He knows that by supporting Pres. Bush, he gains the continuing support of american/coalition troops in Iraq, thereby allowing them to continue down the path of Democracy/stability.
He also is painfully aware that if Kerry is elected, there is a high, no VERY HIGH liklihood that that support evaporates given J. Flip-flop K.'s track record.
Very sharp and very prgmatic.
My wager is that the MSM will virtually ignore this speech.
Thanks for posting this link...
This speech is a 'keeper'.. print and mail to our soldiers!!
"Your decision to go to war in Iraq was not an easy one but it was the right one."
I'd love to see the people who clapped........(and who didn't.)
"But there are the tiny minority who despise the very ideas of liberty, of peace, of tolerance, and who will kill anyone, destroy anything, to prevent Iraq and its people from achieving this goal.
Among them are those who nurse fantasies of the former regime returning to power. There are fanatics who seek to impose a perverted vision of Islam in which the face of Allah cannot be seen. And there are terrorists, including many from outside Iraq, who seek to make our country the main battleground against freedom, democracy and civilization."
The insurgents, no doubt.
Allawi speech, Pong
