My latest John (3-Purple Hearts) Kerry e-mail
johnkerry.com | Oct 26, 2005 | john kerry

Dear Wanker,

Later today, I will deliver a major speech on the war in Iraq.

It asks a hard and essential question: how do we bring our troops home within a reasonable and responsible timeframe, while achieving what needs to be achieved in Iraq?

One thing is certain. It isn't by continuing to pursue the Bush administration's "stay for as long as it takes" rhetoric. And it isn't by blindly following their policy of cutting and running from the truth that underlies that rhetoric.

That's why my speech today will call on the Bush administration to immediately draw up -- and present to Congress and the American people -- a detailed plan with target dates for the transfer of military and police responsibilities to Iraqis so the majority of our combat forces can be withdrawn.

I hope you'll take a moment to read excerpts from this critically important call to action on Iraq.

http://www.johnkerry.com/pressroom/speeches/spc_2005_10_26.html

My speech today will assert that there is no reason Iraq cannot be relatively stable, no reason the majority of our combat troops can't soon be on their way home, and no reason we can't take on a new role in Iraq, as an ally not an occupier, training Iraqis to defend themselves by the end of 2006.

Today of all days, it is important to note that instead of attacking Ambassador Wilson's report, instead of attacking his wife to justify attacking Iraq, the Bush administration should have simply paid attention to what his report revealed.

As I write this, we are waiting to learn whether the administration's attacks will prove to be an indictable offense in a court of law. But for its CIA leaks, and for misleading a nation into war, the Bush administration will most certainly be indicted in the high court of history.

Sadly, there have been a legion of Bush administration miscalculations that have left us having far too few options in Iraq.

It is never easy to discuss what has gone wrong while our troops are in constant danger. I know this dilemma first-hand. After serving in war, I returned home to offer my own personal voice of dissent. I did so because I believed strongly that we owed it to those risking their lives to speak truth to power. We still do.

In fact, while some say we can't ask tough questions because we are at war, I say no -- in a time of war we must ask the hardest questions of all. No matter what President Bush says, asking tough questions isn't pessimism, it's patriotism. If you agree, I urge you to join me in demanding a new course in Iraq. You can start by making sure as many people as possible see this speech.

http://www.johnkerry.com/pressroom/speeches/spc_2005_10_26.html

The American people -- most importantly, the families of the brave men and women serving in Iraq -- can no longer tolerate George W. Bush's failure to spell out a reasonable and detailed plan of action on Iraq. If the President refuses to act, we must call on Congress to take the decision out of his hands.

I urge you to read the speech I plan to deliver at Georgetown University in a matter of hours -- and to forward it to as many people as possible. Most of all, I hope you will resolve to join the entire johnkerry.com community in the weeks ahead as we work to create an undeniable groundswell of public pressure for a detailed, date-specific plan of action on Iraq.

(laughing under breath)

Sincerely,

John 'I have a plan' Kerry

PS. In addition to serving in combat, did I tell you that I won three Purple hearts? If not, I did.

His full name is John Fraud Kerry.

You are exactly right. He should be arrested for theft of a publicly paid salary.

You guys miss the innuendo.

The troop level for Iraq was as high as approx 156,000 for the referendum for the constitution.

I suspect that the military took advantage of troop rotation to get the level up that high. So naturally the military is going to reduce the level of troops in the coming months.

So, 20,000 minus 156,000 = 136,000

I am betting that 20,000 troops were already planned to come home in the coming months and Kerry is going to claim victor for making that request and the military obliging him.

See how much pull sKerry has with the Pentagon. They listen to him /sarcasm

No, I did not. I heard of a lanky, lurch type guy, who went by 'JFK' did serve though. Said he drove a swift boat, or something like that??...

Mmmm, yeessss, Bush is attacking Plame and Wilson to draw attention away from the "Iraq Debacle". It seems to me that John Fleein' Kerry is trying a bit of projection. "Oh, look at me, I'm so special I'll attack Bush's record in the National Guard to get focus off those embarrassing Swift Vets for Truth and their mean media campaign." Not gonna fly really, Kerr-Bear.


Oh, and Bush failed to spell out a reasonable and detailed plan of action in Iraq?

Well, I think Kerry swigged a bit of the Chappaquidick-Chugger's coffee before coming up with that bit of brilliance. Didn't the clear plan of action involve ensuring that Al-Qaeda-"The Wall that must be torn down", didn't get WMD from Saddam or Zarqawi, getting the Iraqi's back on their feet and under a reasonably free government, and then going home.

Exactly what is missing in this detailed plan of action?

And why should Kerry care about the "families of the brave men and women serving in Iraq" when he slimed the memories of the brave men and women who served in Vietnam?

Sorry, this is a bit close to my heart.

Kohn is his real last name, I guess he forgot that he was Jewish. Or it got lost somewhere down the line. Funny how that happens to the Dems.

As for his GPA, I'm sure that he will make that public in the near future. If it was lacking, (according to his book) I'm sure it was because he was so underprivilidged when he was at harvard - Other kids folks had larger yachts.

Next time I put up my Kerry e-mails, I'll add a BARF alert!

The man needs some staff people who can point out these obvious conflicts for him BEFORE he steps in the big steamin' pile....
