Senator Kerry after coming back home from serving our country in
Vietnam, began protesting our being there. The thought of most
protestors was that we should leave Vietnam. Unfortunately, we didn't
do that and tens of thousands more U.S. soldiers were killed as a
result of the continuation of that tragic war.
I believe that what John Kerry did was right and honorable. He was
doing his patriotic duty by trying to prevent the deaths of more
American's from a war that was seen as unwinnable. But Dick Nixon
didn't want to be the first U.S. President to lose a war. Ironically
he became the first President in U.S. history to lose a war, when we
lost in Vietnam.
I haven't heard yet that G W Bush has any plan. Whatever the plan,
all he says it is not like Kerry's. Instead of talking about his plan
he chose to spout more 'mumbo-jumbo' rhetoric to attack Kerry by
calling him a lifelong liberal, etc.
Maybe Bush's plan is similar to his failed policies of the past four
years. I'm fairly certain it will be 'more of same' from Bush, if
unfortunately for our country he is re-elected. Do you really expect
anything new from him?

"No war is glorious, it's a tragedy. It's even more of a tragedy especially when people are being killed unnecessarily, as a result of the greedy, power-hungry agenda of their governments" ~ MOPEDER
