Skip to comments.Terrorism = Illegal Gambling? (Who Else but Kerry)
Posted on 10/10/2004 1:44:44 PM PDT by PhiKapMom
In an interview with Matt Bai published in todays New York Times Magazine, Kerry made a very, very, very significant statement about how he would fight the war on terror. Kerry compared the war on terrorism with eradicating prostitution or illegal gambling.
''We have to get back to the place we were, where terrorists are not the focus of our lives, but they're a nuisance,'' Kerry said. ''As a former law-enforcement person, I know we're never going to end prostitution. We're never going to end illegal gambling. But we're going to reduce it, organized crime, to a level where it isn't on the rise. It isn't threatening people's lives every day, and fundamentally, it's something that you continue to fight, but it's not threatening the fabric of your life.''
Terrorism, a nuisance?
This is the latest in a series of statements where Kerry views the war on terror more as a law enforcement operation than as a war. The article also has some other revealing tidbits about how Kerrys closest advisers dont believe we are in a war, and Kerrys lack of a clear vision.

Thanks for this.
I guess Kerry loses the mafia and prostitute vote.
Who else in there?
Please make sure this hits every media outlet in your area -- call Talk Radio, write a letter to the editor, email this to your TV outlets. Whatever you do make sure this gets as widespread circulation as you can get.
Kerry needs defeated by large enough numbers that his lawyers cannot contest this election. Do your part and get Republicans to the polls and any Dems for Bush out to vote!
this is why we call him SKERRY
What a great idea, John Kerry! All we gotta do to tame terrorism is TAX it. Let the government make money on buildings being knocked down, thousands killed, pizza parlor explosions, and on and on. Innocents will still die, but at least the government can rake more taxes in to increase in size.
He is an annoying nuisance!
He is losing votes right and left -- these comments shocked me and I thought I was beyond shocked with John Kerry!
This idiotic statement should be Kerry's final kiss of death. This proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that he WILL NOT protect the USA!
Terrorism is just a nuisance? Where is this man's brain??
It's pretty clear--a vote for sKerry is a vote to surrender to terrorism. Remember, Terry Kerry has publicly implied that Americans are arrogant to think that they can live terrorism-free lives while people elsewhere in the world can't. She's obviously been listening more closely to her husband than the paleomedia has.
I wonder how much he and the Ny Slimes and ABCNNBC BS are being paid with Middle East Blood money to down play Islamofascist terrorism.
When was the last time that whores or drug dealers flew passenger planes loaded with innocent Americans into buildings with innocent Americans to commit mass murder?
Yeah I can definitely see his point about the similarities./sarcasm off
"not threatening the fabric of our life"?
If I was blown to pieces, I think the fabric of my life as well as the fabric of my clothes might just be threatened.
He doesn't get the war on terror at all...at all. "Just live with it?" Sounds like the UN telling the Iraqis...."Just live with Sadaam!"
Complete and utter gobbelty gook.
What an arrogant pr&ck - he's smarter than EVERYONE. The press is stupid and WE are all idiots.
Yep, this little article should really finish him for sure.
"If you haven't volunteered to help Bush-Cheney '04 win, do so tomorrow -- call your state GOP and volunteer -- we cannot let John Kerry win!"
You are so right PhiKapMom, I always wonder when I am at the RNC, where is everybody, George needs help here.
So Osama and Heidi Fleiss are about the same in Kerry's mind huh? The guy is an idiot!
Hey Kerry, ask the victims of September 11, 2001 if the "fabric of their lives" were threatened. A$$h@le!
