    During the past US Presidential election - and since, the American Left went out of its way to demonize President George W Bush. Their most important reason to oust Bush from having four more years was the way he acted unilaterally in global issues. The mantra from the Left was simple: Vote for Kerry and he will reestablish America's relationships with our old allies such as France and Germany. Elect John Kerry and he will reestablish America's prestige with the United Nations. But . . . reelect George W Bush. And America will be assured to continue going it alone....

    One of the most riveting lines of John Kerry's 1971 testimony before the Senate was a question: "How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?" Kerry was talking about Vietnam but he has described the war in Iraq in similar terms, as a "mistake" or a "colossal error." Nevertheless, he expects voters to believe that if elected, he will persevere rather than cut and run. Put another way, voters are being asked to elect a candidate who's willing to order men and women to die in a war he believes is a...

    On August 5, 2004, speaking to about 7,000 minority journalists at the "Unity 2004: Journalists of Color Conference", John Kerry reportedly said "I believe I can fight a more effective, more thoughtful, more strategic, more proactive, more sensitive war on terror" than President Bush. While briefly reported by USA Today, and The Atlanta Journal Constitution, it was largely ignored by the press at the time the comment was made.

    In the campaign’s final days, Kerry continues to claim that Bush “outsourced” the job of going after bin Laden in Tora Bora (search) to Afghan warlords. But the Democrat’s charge rankles not only retired Gen. Tommy Franks, a strong Bush supporter on the campaign trail, but also Army special forces soldiers who say they searched for bin Laden in Tora Bora’s treacherous mountains.

John Kerry (news - web sites)'s first response to Osama bin Laden (news - web sites)'s new videotape was to take a poll to find out what he should say about it. A spokesman for Kerry's campaign did not deny polling on the bin Laden videotape, but suggested President Bush (news - web sites) has done so.

    It occurred to me after watching the Sunday News Shows, that what John Kerry is proposing, when he says he can manage the IraqWar/War-on-Terrorism and make better decisions than President Bush, is exactly what caused the Vietnam debacle, Bay-of-Pigs disaster and the failed Iran Hostage Rescue. Add to those losses, the stalemates of the Korean War and Cuban Missile Crisis, plus 8 years of useless UN Resolutions during the 90's, it becomes obvious that what Kerry promises if elected - micro-management of the War - is not in our county's best interests and will definitely lead to a less safe,...

"As Americans we are united in our determination to destroy, capture, kill Osama bin Laden and all of the terrorists.

    After Osama bin Laden released his pre-election video yesterday, John Kerry repeated his criticism that President Bush let the terror kingpin get away by "outsourcing" the job to Afghan forces when we had him cornered in the Tora Bora mountains. But it turns out that in December 2001, when the Tora Bora operation was underway, Kerry endorsed Bush's tactics during an interview with CNN's Larry King. Kerry said the Bush plan to get bin Laden "is having its impact, and it is the best way to protect our troops and sort of minimalize the proximity, if you will." Lest anyone...

    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...

In the commercial, as seen on Fox News (Thurs. Oct. 21, 2004), Kerry criticizes President Bush for casualties caused by the war in Iraq, and then offers this gem of a statement. "If president, I will stop at nothing to keep terrorists from attacking this country," Kerry is quoted as saying in the commercial. Kerry apparently does not realize that he just told millions of voters that he will do "nothing" in the war on terror, and...

    --SNIP-- The main problem with changing the War on Terror from a military back into a law-enforcement conflict is that in law enforcement, the terror-criminal has to commit the crime first before being brought to justice. This is precisely the reason Bill Clinton admitted that he turned down the offer of Osama bin Laden by the Sudanese, way before the attack on 9/11. Clinton said that he knew that bin Laden wanted to harm Americans, but he didn't have a legal reason to accept the offer. Wrong plan — wrong then and wrong now.

Third, and most important, that there is precious little substantial disagreement between the two candidates on war strategy going forward.

As President, how will you go about repairing relationships with friendly Muslim nations? John Kerry: Well, first, let me say this. President Bush has waged a war of unmitigated destruction upon the Muslim nations of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Moreover, he has indiscriminately bombed hot-bed Iraqi cities—such as Falluja and...

    During the debate on foriegn policy, Sn. John Kerry said of going into Iraq, "We had Saddam Hussein trapped." And in a speech at New York University, New York, NY, September 20, 2004: "I would have tightened the noose and continued to pressure and isolate Saddam Hussein--who was weak and getting weaker-- so that he would pose no threat to the region or America." Yet, in a speech before the Committee on Armed Services and Committee on Foreign Relations, U.S. Senate, Joint Hearing, September 3, 1998, Kerry Expressed Opposition to ``Policy of Containment:'' "So we've got a major set of...

    Among the other sound-bytes Kerry provided for the Bush campaign tonight, let's not miss out on this one. All Bush has to do in his next ad is just list all the weapons system that Kerry voted against, followed by the clip of Kerry saying "I'm going to shut that program down". The ad can end with "Don't let Kerry shut-down the development of the weapons our soldiers need to fight terrorists." Heck, this could even be an RNC ad if they don't tell you who to vote for, since it's advocating the issue of developing new weaponry. Okay, for...

    I have watched John Kerry promise the American people in numerous campaign speeches this year that his administration will be much more successful in securing assistance from "America's traditional allies" to support the U.S. in the war on terror. Almost from the beginning of his run for the White House he has criticized the Bush administration, and I believe unjustly, for alienating friendly nations, ignoring the U.N., and deciding to go it alone in Iraq, leaving the American people to pay the cost in blood and treasure. But while Kerry's promises to secure meaningful support for the U.S. have been...

    "As president, I will finish the job in Iraq and refocus our energies on the real war on terror." I think most of us understand what his real plan is versus his flip flopping rhetoric. American's understand why he has taken so many positions on the Iraq and GWOT issue, because at some point in the future whether elected or not he can point back and say SEE, I said that would happen or we should've done this or that. From what I've gathered here is Kerry's real 4 point plan... 1. Cut and run from Iraq [bring troops hom...

    CRAWFORD, Texas, Sept 25 (AFP) - US President George W. Bush and his allies are increasingly warning voters that Democratic White House hopeful John Kerry is undermining the war on terrorism and US-led efforts in Iraq. Standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi at the White House on Thursday, Bush said Kerry's criticisms of his handling of Iraq "can embolden an enemy" and "can dispirit the Iraqi people." Vice President Dick Cheney warned on September 7 that if Kerry wins the November 2 election "then the danger is that we'll get hit again, that we'll be hit in a...

    KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. (Reuters) - President Bush suggested on Wednesday that Democrat John Kerry's aggressive new attacks on the White House's Iraq policy show that the Massachusetts senator may not be up to the task of leading the broader war on terrorism. In a sharp verbal counterpunch at a campaign stop in the battleground state of Pennsylvania, Bush accused Kerry of wavering from his early backing of military intervention in Iraq as the Nov. 2 election approaches. "He has had many different positions on Iraq. Incredibly, this week he said he would prefer the dictatorship of Saddam Hussein to...
