  • Kerry hit on Iran nuke plan: See video of his Iranian fund-raiser trashing idea

    11/01/2004 11:19:51 PM PST · by JohnHuang2 · 1 replies · 128+ views ^ | Tuesday, November 2, 2004
    As the nuclear ambitions of Iran continue to strengthen, with Tehran's supreme leader now threatening to pull out of nuke talks with European nations, Sen. John Kerry's chief Iranian-American fund-raiser has repudiated, under oath, the presidential candidate's policy of accommodation toward Tehran, declaring the Islamic regime should not be trusted with nuclear materials. His comments come in a videotaped deposition obtained by WorldNetDaily.As WorldNetDaily previously reported exclusively, Hassan Nemazee, 54, a New York investment banker and former board member of a pro-Tehran lobby, delivered a one-hour deposition earlier this month in New York City in a $10 million defamation lawsuit...
  • Iran's threats discredit Kerry nuke policy

    11/01/2004 11:18:13 PM PST · by JohnHuang2 · 128+ views ^ | Tuesday, November 2, 2004 | Art Moore
    On the eve of the U.S. presidential election, Sen. John Kerry's campaign continues to advocate normalizing relations and providing nuclear fuel to Tehran's radical mullah-led regime despite the Iranian parliament's defiant, anti-American vote to proceed with uranium enrichment, a key process in development of atomic weapons. Shouting "Death to America," and "Death to Israel," Iranian lawmakers decided unanimously Sunday to back the outline of a bill that would require the Islamic government to resume uranium enrichment. An activist in the Iranian democracy movement believes the American mainstream media is ignoring the impact the parliament's message has on today's U.S. presidential...
  • Kerry Policy on Taiwan Differs From Ten Months Ago

    Pacific Rim Bureau ( - In an apparent policy shift, Sen. John Kerry has told an Asian newspaper that he does not support the notion of Taiwan reverting to China under the "one country, two systems" formula which governed Hong Kong's return to the mainland. Kerry reportedly told Hong Kong's Chinese-language Sing Tao Daily that the "one country, two systems" model could not be replicated for Taiwan. That position differs from one outlined by Kerry last January, when he spoke in favor of "one country, two systems" for Taiwan. Taiwanese are divided over whether the island should be incorporated...

    Within 72 hours, America faces the most important election choice in decades. Voters will determine where America and our civilization will go in the global war on terror and in leading the world. This election is about our fundamental national security and our nation's future. Why? WE ARE AT WAR. The central issue for America is terrorism; the central battlefield of terrorism today is in Iraq; and so the future of Iraq and the future of America is intertwined. In this war on terrorism (or more precisely,war on global Jidahist terrorism), we have a choice: 9/10 Senator versus a 9/11...

    The issue of relations with Russia takes an important position in the foreign policy program of the Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry. Kerry's advisor for Russia, Graham Allison, from Harvard University says that the program outlines the priorities of the policy with Russia. If John Kerry is elected president, he will pay special attention to the anti-terrorist struggle. Russia is said to play USA's most important partner at this point. According to Allison, Kerry believes that Russia's wish to build the modern democratic society with market economy is important not only for Russia in particular, but also for the USA...
  • Kerry continues to belittle countries all over the world who are fighting the War On Terror

    10/24/2004 8:30:54 PM PDT · by nontrifler · 2 replies · 348+ views
    Recently, in the debates America heard how Senator John Kerry denigrated the countries of the "Coalition of the Willing" in Iraq, who are helping to fight the War On Terrorism. Perhaps, these countries, some of which have seen their share of oppression for decades realize something Senator Kerry does not. Take the case of Poland for example, once under the brutal dictatorship of the Soviet Union. Perhaps, it's fitting that this country, who symbolizes what standing up to brutal regimes and winning, along with the United States (e.g., Lech Walesa, President Reagan) can make a difference, when it comes to...

    The Soviet Union might still exist and Saddam Hussein might control the Persian Gulf and possess nuclear weapons had Democrat John Kerry been president when the United States faced those regimes, Vice President Dick Cheney said Saturday. "I think it's a good thing that he wasn't in charge," Cheney said. Kerry asserted Friday that had he been president during the war in Afghanistan, terrorist leader Osama bin Laden would be in captivity or dead. The Democratic nominee has long criticized President Bush for abandoning the pursuit of the alleged mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks so that U.S....

    We just got a tip......that a major newspaper will break a front-page story Monday morning that could create a serious problem for the Kerry campaign. We don't yet have any details, but it relates to a foreign policy issue, and it will call into question--amazingly enough--John Kerry's truthfulness. We'll watch for the story Sunday night and post it as soon as it becomes available.

    Town Hall ^ | October 22, 2004 | Charles Krauthammer [Washington Post Writers Group]
    The centerpiece of John Kerry's foreign policy is to rebuild our alliances so the world will come to our help, especially in Iraq. He repeats this endlessly because it is the only foreign policy idea he has to offer. The problem for Kerry is that he cannot explain just how he proposes to do this. The mere appearance of a Europhilic fresh face is unlikely to so thrill the allies that French troops will start marching down the streets of Baghdad. Therefore, you can believe that Kerry is just being cynical in pledging to bring in the allies, knowing that...

    John Kerry and Foreign Policy I have been asked to write a brief article that summarizes my thoughts in this coming Presidential election. I have received many inquiries from independents, non political types, and those just becoming interested in politics. For whatever reason, I have found that people don't know much about Kerry, or have serious misconceptions about his record. This is an attempt to fairly define the Democratic Presidential Nominee via the single issue of Foreign Policy. Foreign Policy was chosen because it is (rightly) of utmost importance to many voters in this election. Also, Kerry has sat on...

    October 17, 2004 -- THE ISSUE: The Iraq war and corruption in the U.N. Oil-for-Food program. The Post's commentary on the Oil-for-Food program was an eye-opener ("John Kerry's 'Allies' — Bought and Paid For," Editorial, Oct. 8). It is crystal clear why the French did not want us in Iraq. Jacques Chirac and his cronies were lining their pockets with cash skimmed off the U.N.-sponsored program. One wonders what the world would look like today had President Bush left Saddam alone and in power. I now know we did the right thing by invading Iraq and driving this madman from...

    Reviving Frankenstein in the Balkans Where oh where, then, could an incoming Kerry regime look for a quick foreign policy victory, if Iraq and everything else has gone to hell? Welcome back to the Balkans – where the "victory" envisioned will prove a disastrous one, dangerous not only for the region but for the long-term interests of both Europe and America. The Balkans is the region of greatest experience for today's Democrats and, thanks to them, some of it remains a mess even today. And so the famous "something must be done!" interventionist rallying cry still has some life in...

    Comments made by Senator John Kerry more than seven months ago may have helped trigger the recent wave of violence afflicting Haiti, according to the Brazilian commander for the UN peacekeeping troops in that Caribbean nation. In an interview posted on the website of Agencia Brasil, the Brazilian government's official news agency, Lieutenant-General Augusto Heleno Ribeiro said comments made in March by Kerry had raised the hopes of supporters of Jean-Bertrand Aristide that the former Haitian president would be able to return to power. "Statements made by a candidate to the presidency of the United States created false hopes among...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) - US Secretary of State Colin Powell, who has stayed largely out of the presidential campaign, said he doubted claims by Democratic challenger John Kerry that he could attract more US allies on Iraq if he defeats President George W. Bush on November 2. "I don't want to get into the political debate, as you noted, and Senator Kerry can make these statements, but I'm not sure that he can really back them up or that suddenly support that is not there now will magically appear with a change in the presidency," Powell told Fox News.

    There is a bloc of voters that may easily decide the forthcoming election. A little over a million Serbian-Americans—their exact number is uncertain but this is a conservative estimate—are likely to vote this year in greater numbers than ever before. The significance of this group becomes obvious if we look at its geographic distribution. After Chicago, the main Serbian-American centers are Pittsburgh, PA; Cleveland, OH; and Milwaukee, WI. There are thousands of retirees in Florida and sizeable pockets in St. Louis (MO) and suburban New Jersey. In each of those states the size of the community exceeds the likely margin...

    (KRT) - John Kerry has been so busy on the campaign trail spouting "wrong war, wrong place, wrong time" and trying to woo voters with how he's going to "build alliances" to make Iraq all better that he probably hasn't had time to review the tape of fascinating and frustrating testimony that took place in Washington three days before the second presidential debate. The House Committee on Government Reform's subcommittee investigating the U.N. oil-for-food program heard disturbing accounts of how our "allies" - some of the same countries that cited moral grounds for refusing to back President Bush's pre-emptive move...

    Over the past year, John Kerry and his surrogates have repeatedly attempted to suggest that the Clinton administration made significant progress in dealing with the North Korean nuclear weapons threat, and that all of this is being undone by the Bush administration. During the first presidential debate, for example, Mr. Kerry suggested that, thanks to the policies of the Clinton administration, "We had inspectors and television cameras in the nuclear reactor in North Korea. [Kerry adviser and former Defense Secretary] Bill Perry negotiated that under President Clinton. And we knew where the fuel rods were. And we knew the limits...
