Bush X Kerry

Reader comment on item: In the MidEast, Bush Dared to Be Different

Submitted by Marcos Berenstein (Brazil), Oct 25, 2004 at 08:03


I think that Mr.Kerry's remarks about the war against terrorism a little bit weak, compared with President Bush's actions in Iraq, Afghanistan.

Bush's decisions brought the FIRST free elections to Afghanistan, making Hamid Kharzai the first democratically-elected leader in such a bloodthirsty, dictatorship-ruled part of the world.

If Mr.Kerry was the president, the obscure,middle-aged minded TALIBAN would STILL be ruling Afghanistan,isn't it true?

Iraq will also enjoy this rare privilege of freely choosing its leaders with free elections rather than through coup-d├ętats,military mutiny,death threats,and other very common 'tools' used in the arab/muslim countries.

Mr.Bush gave arabs interested in freedom,a hope that no other western leader was able,willing to do.

Would France do that? Nope...Perhaps Germany? wrong answer!T he world still depends on ol'America to do the heavy,bloody (and so much needed) job, doesn't it?

Mr.Kerry represents exactly what the Middle-Eastern people most fear:An European-minded foreign policy ruling the white house.
