Mea Culpa: Kerry 'Regrets' Voting for Iraq Resolution

By Susan Jones Senior Editor

( - Sen. John F. Kerry, who may be running for president again, says that voting to authorize the war in Iraq is one of his biggest political mistakes. The fact that this idiot is a politician is his biggest mistake.

In a blog on his website, (That doesn't archive his posts or allow comments so it is NOT a blog.) the Massachusetts Democrat noted on Wednesday, "Four years ago today, the United States Senate voted to give President Bush the authority to use force in Iraq. There's nothing -- nothing -- in my life in public service I regret more, nothing even close. We should all be willing to say: I was wrong, I should not have voted for the Iraq War Resolution." How about when you testified before congress and LIED and accused your fellow veterans of commiting war crimes that YOU SAID you witnessed but NEVER happened. Are you proud of that Senator?

Kerry said it's "not enough" to talk about the Bush administration's "incompetence and immorality" in the conduct of the war, and he said it's not enough "just to look backwards." Your the one looking backwards, talking about a vote you made 4 years ago.

"We must change course in Iraq," Kerry insisted. He referred to his "comprehensive plan" to end what he describes as a civil war. Where is your "comprehensive plan" the only thing I could find on your website was one paragraph on what to do in Iraq:
[John Kerry supports internationalizing our effort in Iraq, so our troops are not carrying all the work with more lengthy and extended deployments. He also believes we have to move forward with reconstruction because it’s an important way to win the hearts and minds of the Iraqi people and stop the spread of terror. The January 30 elections will be an important milestone for Iraqis. America must help them achieve a viable government, because it is up to them to run their country.]

Kerry said his plan -- which sets a July 2007 deadline to withdraw U.S. troops -- is the opposite of Bush's "stand-still-and-lose" strategy. (Critics of the "get-out-now" approach, including President Bush, describe it a "cut-and-run.") because that's what it is.

Kerry also called for "real diplomacy" toward Iraq, which he described as "a Dayton-like summit of Iraq and the countries bordering it, the Arab League, NATO, and the Permanent Members of the United Nations Security Council." Yes lets ask the local dictators what should be done in Iraq, and we can't forget China, Russia, and France. Thats "Real Diplomacy" taking direction from the people that want to see Iraq fail and those that profited off of supporting Sadams Regime.

Kerry said since Congress shares the responsibility for getting the U.S. into Iraq, it should "take responsibility for getting us out the right way." Like they did in Vietnam setting the stage so that millions can die in the slaughter and chaos that will follow. Just as the Democrats in Congress allowed Pol Pot to slaughter millions in Vietnam after they pulled out and abbandoned the S. Vietnamese.

He urged Americans to visit the Vietnam War Memorial - to walk down the path and look at all the names inscribed on the black marble walls. Kerry noted that "half the names on that wall were lost after America's leaders knew and later acknowledged our strategy would not succeed. Bullshit

"It was immoral then and it is immoral now to be quiet or equivocal in the face of that kind of delusion. Just think about what that Wall might look like for Iraq," Kerry said. Yeah look at it 4 years of War and only 3000 American Soldier Deaths. The most effective and SAFE War Zone in the history of Warfare. Besides Senator you weren't quiet as you gave false testamony to congress during the Vietnam War, that was real Moral of ya.

Kerry made his comments hours after President Bush once again explained what the U.S. is doing in Iraq -- and why.

Finish the job

At a White House news conference Wednesday morning, President Bush said "stay the course" does not describe his policy in Iraq.

"Stay the course means keep doing what you're doing. My attitude is, don't do what you're doing if it's not working; change." Bush said his administration is constantly changing its tactics to achieve a strategic goal, which he described as a country that can "defend itself, sustain itself, and govern itself."

"Stay the course also means don't leave before the job is done," Bush said.

"Defeat in Iraq will embolden an enemy," he said. "And I want to repeat to you the reality of the world in which we live. If we were to leave before the job is done, the enemy is coming after us. And most Americans...understand we've got to defeat them (terrorists) there so we don't face them here."

According to Bush, "The stakes couldn't be any higher."

The president admitted that the war in Iraq is "tough on the American psyche," but when it comes to the questions of "can we win," the answer is yes.

Bush said he's not questioning anyone's patriotism, but he did note that many Democrats are among those saying, "get out, it's not worth it."

Bush said setting a "date certain" for a U.S. troop withdrawal is a mistake. "That is cut and run," he said.
