Kerry Says Saddam 'Might Be Gone' Had He Been President Fri Oct 29 2004 10:02:35 ET
NBCNEWS Brokaw interviewed John Kerry Thursday evening.
Brokaw: "If you had been President, Saddam Hussein would be in power."
Kerry: "Not necessarily."
Brokaw: "You said you wouldn't go to war against him."
Kerry: "That's not true. Because under the inspection process, Saddam Hussein was required to destroy those kinds of materials and weapons."
Brokaw: "But he wasn't destroying them."
Kerry: "That's what you have inspectors for. That's why I voted for the threat of force, because he only does things when you have a legitimate threat of force. It's irresponsible to suggest that if I were President, he wouldn't be gone. He might be gone, because if he hadn't complied, we might have had to go to war, but if we did, we would have gone with allies, so the American people weren't carrying the entire burden. And the entire world would understand why we did it."
He decided that he might still be there, before deciding he might not still be there.
LOL, LOL Kerry would = Jimmy Carter the 2nd.
Kerry is so indecisive, someone should ask him if he is going to vote for himself!
Wow, this guy is so nuanced.
And Bill Buckner would have fielded that ball in '86 if he was the Red Sox manager.
Was the war in Iraq worth it?
Kerry: "It depends on if we win."
"New York City might be a crater, if I become President"
It could be true. Saddam may have gotten the Boy Wonder's papers from his attorney, and as the good, moral, upstanding citizen king that he was caring the utmost for his people, he may have simply decided to step down.
Kerry thinks he's going to be president too!
Bush better have an ad out on this tonight for the nightly news circuit. This is as clear cut statement that Kerry would not act to defend America as we are likely to get.
Snake oil is historically a patent medicine beverage or ointment concocted from various inert ingredients (commonly including alcohol or stimulants) and sold as a cure for various (if not all) diseases and ailments. The essence of "snake oil" is that the ingredients are unidentified, mysteriously alluded to, or mis-characterized, and generally the product has an unusually wide application as a cure-all or panacea. References to currently fashionable pseudoscience may bolster the product's claims. Often sold with boisterous marketing hype and promoted by travelling "doctors" with dubious credentials, and perhaps an accomplice in the crowd who will attest to the value of the product. Sometimes seen in films depicting the United States of the 19th and early 20th centuries: often the snake-oil salesperson has to leave town in a hurry when the inhabitants start to realize that they have been conned.
I'm confused. Kerry would have gone to war if Saddam had not complied? Or is it that Kerry would have gone to war if we did not have to bear the burden? Or is it that Kerry would have gone to war if the world understood why?
Actually, it sounds like he would have not gone to war unless all of those tests were met. So what he's saying is that even if Saddam were a danger to the US, he would not have protected the US interest unless he could stick someone else with the cost, and the entire world understood.
No, if Kerry were President (gag-choke-spew), Saddam WOULD still be in power because Jean Francois Kerry, wishing not to offend his buddies the French, would never have moved against Saddam because Jacques ChIraq and the rest of the corrupt scumbags that make up the French national leadership would not have wanted their perfidy revealed to the world, their Oil-for-Fraud contacts exposed, and of course, President Kerry would not wish to offend his friends in Paris.
Go pound sound you traitor, there are too many former POWs that did their time in the Hanoi Hilton to let America forget how you gave aid and comfort to our enemies, and how you thrust a knife into our national backside.
Burn in Hell Kerry.
KERRY: President of what?
Oops. Correction. 'Pound SAND you traitor'.
There. That's better.
LOL!! Attention San Francisco, attention Chicago, Attention Seattle, attention Philadelphia, attention New York City...here comes Kerry and not far behind Al Zarqawi and Adam Hassan.
Agree, this is great ad material. NBC will holler for using their interview footage but they shoudl run it anyway.
Mr. Kerry, we went in with Allies. As many as were willing to help. What makes you think you would have convinced more countries to go in with us? They wouldn't have taken you seriously. Nobody does.
