STATEMENT OF SENATOR JOHN KERRY

RE: COMMENCEMENT OF MILITARY STRIKES IN IRAQ

Thursday, March 20, 2003

WASHINGTON, DC – Senator John Kerry issued the following statement in response to the commencement of military strikes in Iraq:

“It appears that with the deadline for exile come and gone, Saddam Hussein has chosen to make military force the ultimate weapons inspections enforcement mechanism. If so, the only exit strategy is victory, this is our common mission and the world’s cause. We're in this together. We want to complete the mission while safeguarding our troops, avoiding innocent civilian casualties, disarming Saddam Hussein and engaging the community of nations to rebuild Iraq.”

WHat? Funny tagline? I got it from Michael's Moore's own personal diary - it is his most cherished wish -

SADDAM HIMSELF is the weapon of mass destruction. It's his AMBITIONS and CONTROL which gave him power. He is the likes of Hitler who was counting on the US to lose their resolve.

BE WISE!

It was a "war of choice" and Kerry publicly admits it was Saddam's choice

Now, I don't see anywhere in there where he says that the sanctions are working and we should continue them, do you?

That is what I have been told he said today.

Shermy, let's not forget that John Edwards himself called Saddam Hussein an imminent threat.
