Kerry and Edwards never went to Iraq. 233 members of Congress did.

I think it was stated that no one remembers Kerry at the cease-fire signing. He was back in Kuwait at the hotel.

Flipper says he knows how to bring our allies to the table, yet he has a funny way of showing how he would do it.

Kerry has described the coalition of 30+ Nations who are contributing in operations on the ground in Iraq as "Window Dressing" and a Coalition of the "Coerced and Bribed". I'm sure his rhetoric is not well receives in Great Britain, Poland, Italy and Australia, who have all had soldiers killed in Iraq.

John Kerry has had a long history of sucking up to the enemies of freedom and denouncing our efforts to spread liberty. If you don't believe me... just ask Daniel Ortega. or visit the war museum in Vietnam where Kerry is honored for his efforts to demoralize our troops and undermine public support here in the good old USA.

John Kerry is an opportunist scumbag whose only concern is his own desires and could care less about this country or the soldiers who defend it.

Kerry thinks that by denegrating America, allies, and countless others he can make inroads with the terrorists.

The old saying, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Only Kerry is characterizing America as the enemy, and frankly the terrorists aren't impressed. Terrorists just prefer a lot less impact on their spread of hate and any alternative to Bush.

NO, Kerry was not in Iraq or Kuwait on the day of the cease fire in 1991. He arrived 14 days later in Saffron, Iraq as part of a congressional delegation that was briefed by the commanders in the field.

KERRY LIED AGAIN

Oddly enough, all Kerry had to say in the beginning was "We have 30+ nations in this coalition and that is a good beginning. But we should have tried to get more nations involved before we moved. That's the rash mistake that the president made."

That statement would have gotten him out of alot of hot water.

Same thing with the Vietnam vets. "When I was younger, I made some foolish decisions. I have since realized that they were wrong and I apologize to those with whom I served and all those who honorably served this great country in a very trying time."

Would these things have been too hard to say? Guess I'm just an idiot in pajamas or something.

In European circles, to blame America for everything is Chic. Has been for a long time. I think the Euros really are bitter that we bailed them out in WWII. As for the terrorists, well I don't think they're as worried about who's elected as we are worried. They're going to do the same things. It would just be easier under a Kerry administration.

Just wondering: If all these martyrs get 72 virgins when they die, won't they run out of virgins eventually? I really am curious about that, not just jesting.

Those words would have to come from a leader. John Kerry is not a leader, his only contribution to anything involving the security of this country, was to criticize the leadership of every military action we have ever undertaken.

His record is clear

That is exactly my beef. Kerry want to be Commander in Chief, yet he has not found it necessary to visit the troops either in Afghanistan or in Iraq. Neither has he found it necessary to visit the wounded at Walter Reed or any military hospital here in the states. Or comfort the widows, husbands, children, mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters of thos brave troops who gave their lives.

I don't think so

Kerry wants to be Commander in Chief

John Kerry has publicly stated that he a has *No Clue* why Dubya is in Iraq.

Great.
If John Kerry was Commander in Chief, he would, in his mind, be in a quagmire, on day one of his on-the-job training.

It would be Saigon 1975 all over again.

That's what he claims, but there is a whole analysis about the timeline, that he may have been there shortly afterwards, but doubtful he was actually there for the signing.

He also said he was in Iraq at the signing of the armistice after GW I. He wasn't, he was there a couple of weeks later with a group of Senators visiting troops.
Just amazing how he can talk about being someplace and 'I could feel the land whatever blah blah blah...' and NO-ONE but us calls him on it!!!

I thought in one of his interviews after locking up the nomination, Kerry said he had gone to Iraq. [That interview would have been months ago.]

[Maybe I am thinking of his saying he was 'there' for the end of Gulf War 1.]

Neither was present to vote to make the tax cuts for the middle class permanent, yet still claim they are for middle class tax cuts. Cheney pointed this out in the debate with Edwards. Bush should have done the same to Kerry.

The democrats had better start looking for some people with those qualities, and stop pandering to the far left of their constituency, before they find themselves without a chance of even organizing a Filibuster that can't be voted down. Not to mention possessing the keys to the White House would not be surprised to see some of the moderate democrats from the South break away from the extreme liberals who now set their agenda. Tom Daschle and Nancy Pelosi have taken their Party so far to the left, that I doubt they can recover. When Nancy Pelosi takes to the Microphone, whatever is left of the Communists across the Globe must stand up and cheer

Kerry did say in this last debate that he met with all the members of the UN Security Council the week before we went into Iraq [shades of his meetings in Paris 35 years ago].

No one called him on that. What was his 'authority' for doing so?

Did he really meet with them, or is this another fabrication? Kerry has been caught telling so many whoppers, fibs, lies, that one has to question each thing he says.

You nailed that quite well.
The democrats will do what political parties do, though. When the message is unpalatable to "the unwashed masses", they tweak the message until they are acceptable again. However, it's not so much the message that worries me, it's the core-beliefs, ie "The U.S. is at fault for everything".
I'm a middle-class white male, and frankly, I'm tired of everything being my fault.
Okay, I promise not to whine anymore.

Kerry has also claimed he has visited our wounded at Walter Reed. I seriously doubt he has ever spoke to any of them. He might have been in the Hospital, but I have yet to see a single picture of him beside a hospital bed or shaking the hand of any of our troops at Walter Reed or Bethesda Naval Hospital, believe me, I have searched for a picture or an article or transcript of any such meeting. They don't exist

I only saw the part of the transcript that's posted at the Captain's Quarters, but here it is:

"KERRY: I didn't say necessarily the Kurds. There are other members of the opposition. There are people who are outside the country prepared to go in. There are others inside the country. And I believe -- I mean, I was in Safwan. I went there when the signing of the armistice took place at the end of the war."
