Kerry calls for Dems to rally around pulling troops out of Iraq
Boston Herald ^ | Sept 9, 2006 | AP

Posted on 09/09/2006 6:26:20 PM PDT by wouldntbprudent

BOSTON —Sen. John Kerry is calling on Democrats to rally around his plan to pull U.S. combat troops out of Iraq by next July and redeploy some to Afghanistan.

The Massachusetts Democrat gave a speech this morning at Boston’s Faneuil Hall.

On the eve of Congressional mid-term elections, Kerry says Democrats must propose a new direction to defeat terrorism.

He said Bush “pretends again and again” that Iraq is the central front on the war on terror, but Kerry said it isn’t and “never has been.”

Kerry says the military commitment in Iraq weakens the United States’ ability to respond to threats in Iran and Afghanistan.

Okay, so now John Skeery is sabre-rattling for military action in IRAN?

What will he think of next?

I'd heard this rumor that John Kerry served in Vietnam, is this true?

It used to be, "If we all work together, we can win this war."

Now, it's "If we all work together, we can run away, say we won, and make the President look bad!"

During WWII, people like Kerry would have been called traitors. During the Civil war, he would have been imprisoned, and quite possibly hanged or shot.

John F'in Kerry remains traumatized after witnessing all those hideous war crimes reminiscent of Ghenghis Khaaaaan (pronounced the way Kirk pronounced it in Star Trek II but minus the loud volume and gravitas). P*ss on that lying traitor.

Has he asked about the logistics train to Afghanistan? How many more troops would it support/ What are these troops going to do? Walk around the mountains with picture cards of Bin Laden. Why wouldn't our NATO allies pull out if the US is going to make their contribution look paltry?

Try again John. Maybe when the war is over you can tell your grandkids you were on the front lines. "I have this hat, you see, given to me by the guy who bagged Osama".

" redeploy some to Afghanistan"

What a politically and climatologically idiotic theme.

In a month the Afghan fighting will die down for the winter.
By November Afghanistan will be idyllically peaceful... and Dems will be screaming to send more troops there?

P*ss on that lying traitor. I'll second that. What a complete freaking butt-wipe of a human being. Normally I try to post something thoughtful, without a vulgarity. Kerry doesn't deserve thought. Nothing I say can be as vulgar as him.

My DREAM is that somehow the R's hold everything just to make people like him crazy. Charlie Rangle d-Harlem said he'd leave the house if the R's win. Man that's motivation.

In the immortal words of Big John McCarthy of the octagon fame "lets get it on". I'm sick of lying leftist scum. I don't want them in our country any more. How do we get rid of them. Which states can we politically cleanse first?

I would like Mr. Kerry to expound on his conclusion that the war in Iraq is weakening U.S. ability to respond to the threat in Iran.

Because I presume he must be referring to our ability to respond militarily to the threat in Iran.

So I am presuming Mr. Kerry is going to support military action against Iran should, in the judgement of the Commander in Chief, such action become necessary?

Or would that, in the view of Mr. Kerry, be yet another "wrong war at the wrong time?"

IOW, is Mr. Kerry supporting military action against Iran before he doesn't support military action against Iran?

Help me out here, John. And, BTW, why the long face?

John Kerry is a lying, vacillating, slithering traitor.

That a creature like this came so close to the Presdiency is a disgrace.

That Massachusets continues to re-elect this bufoon and his inebriated, treasonous sidekick to Congress again and again is a sad testimony to the intelligence of some Americans.

Kerry is a member of no organized political party. He is a Democrat. The Democrats wanted Lieberman to be Vice President of the United States just two years ago. Today Lieberman has been thrown overboard. By the way Mr. Kerry, you are polling about 12 percent as choice for a Democrat nominee in 2008 -- do you really think you can rally your way out of a wet paper bag?

Remember when Murtha first started blammering about cutting and running and J.D. Hayworth finally said, okay, introduced a bill on it and said vote for staying or going in Iraq and then STHU.

Only about 2.5 Rats had the courage/stupidity to actually vote for cutting and running.

So what makes Skerry such a political genius that he thinks he can rally even just the Rats to this point of view?

Oh, I forget that he did serve in Viet Nam.

bbbwwwaaahhhh!

But, seriously, the man said the war in Iraq weakens our ability to respond to Iran.

So is he saying we could go to war with Iran if it weren't for that pesky little war we were already fighting in Iraq? I hope someone has the audio of this, b/c I see a campaign commercial in the making.
