Kerry Said What?

I actually wrote this on Wednesday during my self-imposed exile from political speak, enjoy.

I would encourage all undecided voters and current and past members of our armed forces to read this article in the Washington Post and pay special attention to the 3rd paragraph where Mr. Kerry says in response to a question about the justification of American soldiers being killing in Bosnia, and I quote "If you mean dying in the course of the United Nations effort, yes, it is worth that. If you mean dying American troops unilaterally going in with some false presumption that we can affect the outcome, the answer is unequivocally no."

Let's all think on exactly what he said. If American soldiers die in a unilateral action, their sacrifice is not as great as if they died in a UN sanctioned action. Boy, to me that sure sounds like a man that will be at the beck and call of the United Nations. As unforgivable this comment is, Kerry has held to this belief for many of the years he has been in public service. Please read the article and pass it on to your family and friends, this speaks to Kerry's core values about American and serves as another reason why he should not be President much less a Senator. Later Troops..........

I will say this: I really wish Kerry wasn't the Democratic candidate. That comment does sound pretty assinine, but I still believe he's better than Bush.

I'm very concerned about what's going to happen to the troops, since I have a brother-in-law is going back to Iraq for the third frickin' time. (Actually, he's not the only service person in my family. Every male in my family, including my husband, has been in the service.) He signed up because he really believed that he was fighting the bad guys, and now we're not even sure that's the case. This doesn't sit easy with me.

But I'm going to get off that, because as interesting as politics is, the whole thing just makes me sick. Politicians make me sick. Blah!

By the way, I really enjoyed your "Things I Hate About Mondays" post. I especially identify with #1. Being happily married with no children has its perks! :)

Thank you for your comment.

Your brother-in-law will be in my prayers for the safety of all our Troops.

chaoticspring,

Stay strong! Your friends and family are doing good work in Irag and they ARE fighting the bad guys! Even John Kerry believed this once, infact, at one time we were all sure. I have yet to see evidence that we were wrong. Vote your conscience and good luck to you and yours
