Kerry Lies About Iraq

John Kerry now says he never would have gotten us involved with Iraq. DON'T BELIEVE IT. Below is what he said a few months ago on Meet the Press. This angers me to no end because it is IN DIRECT CONTRADICTION with what he now says about the war. This guys is a liar. Read his position now and read what he said below. Proof positive that he is not telling the truth about what he would have done in Iraq. Watch the video here.

NBC'S TIM RUSSERT: "You said this about Howard Dean, and this is, I think, at the core of your candidacy against Howard Dean. '...those who believe we are not safer with [Saddam Hussein's] capture don't have the judgment to be President - or the credibility to be elected President.' As we speak this Sunday morning, Senator, do you believe that Howard Dean does not have the judgment to be president or the credibility to be elected president?"

SEN. KERRY: "I think the judgment of a nominee who doesn't understand that having Saddam Hussein captured will make it extraordinarily difficult to be able to beat an incumbent wartime president who captured Saddam Hussein. And let me tell you why, Tim. Saddam Hussein took us to war once before. In that war, young Americans were killed. He went to war in order to take over the oil fields. It wasn't just an invasion of Kuwait. He was heading for the oil fields of Saudi Arabia. And that would have had a profound effect on the security of the United States. This is a man who has used weapons of mass destruction, unlike other people on this Earth today, not only against other people but against his own people. This is a man who tried to assassinate a former president of the United States, a man who lobbed 36 missiles into Israel in order to destabilize the Middle East, a man who is so capable of miscalculation that he even brought this war on himself. This is a man who, if he was left uncaptured, would have continued to be able to organize the Ba'athists. He would have continued to terrorize the people, just in their minds, because of 30 years of terror in Iraq." (NBC's "Meet The Press," 1/11/04)

While Kerry is flip flopping to some degree on the war to play up on the fact that things are going so drastically poorly over there, he still could legitamately have agreed in principle to the idea but now hates the way it is being carried out (no-bid Haliburton contracts, etc). Kerry is, at his core, a politician, his years in Capitol Hill have softened his soul if you will to the point where perhaps he cannot take strong stances on issues. Perhaps he overthinks the issues too much. However, here is a link to a great article desribing the true reasons for the war on Iraq and some other tidbits our lazy, and stupid American press will not touch.

I don't want a man like this running America. Period.
