Lets examine Kerry's unadvertised plan (because he never talks about it but its known in the media circles):
1. Get allies to participate in the Iraq situation. France and Germany have both said in recent weeks that they won't change their mind. And if they did, the best you would get is maybe 1,500 troops each...which doesn't do anything for America.
2. Involve other middle eastern countries heavily into the situation. The Iraqis don't want anyone else from neighboring countries to show up. They are suspicious and have every right to be that way.
3. Involve the UN. If Bill Clinton does get Kofi Ananans job, which is heavily rumored now...it'll turn into a bigger UN mess.
4. Rapidly decrease troops in Iraq. Some folks think Kerry will cut 25 percent of the troop strength within 12 months of election in Iraq. And at least another 25 percent by Kerry's mid-term, with all troops gone by the next election (thus earning the peacemaker award). This can happen...except Iraq will fall into complete chaos and likely break up into four different countries (3 mostly Muslim and likely to fight each other for years).
Thats the policies that Holbrooke should have talked about.
Truth be told: Kerry has a plan, to have a plan.
oh but he IS...just ask him. IMHO, he has an extremely inflated sense of self-importance.
"Reilly: "Shouldn't Al Jeezera be expelled from the US?"
Holbrooke: "I'll leave that to the Bush Administration"
O"Reilly: "Come on Ambassador I am asking you! You might be in office and you need to think about these things"
Bill: What would Kerry's first step be in Iraq?
Holbrooke: uh, uh Assess the situation.
Bill: Isn't Kerry assessing the situation now?
Tonight was my first night of cancelled cable. I must say I had a pleasant evening.
Screen caps please! ;)
He hopes Kerry has a plan to have a plan.
Greets,,,,Seems to me though, Hollebrooke answered O'Rileys question.. stuttered and dumbfounded look.....Heh....until France shows him what to do.
John Kerry served in Viet Nam?
Have any Freepers been to his stupid website to see if there's actually a kerry "plan" posted? I know we have intrepid Freepers that monitor the Sunday Morning Talk shows, cruise DU, watch colonic Couric on our behalf. Did I miss an official Freeper "ze plan...ze plan!" analysis?
This whole interview about numbers and funding for terrorists in Iraq is in answer to the NYT hit piece. These creeps are so sure they know best. They just keep coming.
BOR had to get his two cents in about the mess in Iraq. I have never heard him make a positive statement about the war.
Holbrooke is the one who said a few years back that the nation state is dead and would be right in there with Kerry giving everything to the UN and the global court.
Yet, half the electorate thinks it is about whether Dems or Repubs get the WH and don't have a clue that their way of living will be on its way to the third world if they vote Kerry.
But I thought that Kerry and his crew were the smartest people ever! I heard about another one of theose "Kerry is too smart for America" articles today. What a load of baloney!
