Hillary Clinton said, "We’ve begun to change tactics in Iraq and in some areas, particularly in Al Anbar province, it’s working." when she spoke to the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Dick Durbin stated, "The surge has resulted in a reduction of violence in many parts of Iraq." Senator Carl Levin had to be strong and fight his emotions to say, "The military aspects of President Bush’s new strategy in Iraq…appear to have produced some credible and positive results." Brian Baird, D-WASH, said, "We are making real and tangible progress on the ground, for one, and if we withdraw, it could have a potentially catastrophic effect on the region."
John Kerry has removed himself from the logical base, if it even exists, of his fellow Congressmen. There is a reason he lost the election - why do people still care what he has to say?
Peace will ultimately be achieved through strength. If we show weakness now, we will ultimately waste all of what our troops have fought for. But, perhaps that is what John Kerry wants. Right now, he's working on invitations to send to all of the troops to have a medal burning party at his Massachusetts mansion. But, this would cause a surge in pollution from the smoke. I don't envy you John Kerry. I'd be a nervous wreck.
