Who is Committed to Fighting Terrorism

Reader comment on item: 9/10 vs. 9/12 on [Election Day] 11/2

John Kerry the Vietnam Veteran turned Vietnam War Protestor is an odd choice for the Presidency in the middle of a war. He won his nomination no doubt due to his heroic service as a combat veteran. His character, however, is questionable. After leaving the service he made many false accusations about his comrades in arms.

He claimed that he himself committed war crimes, as well as his fellow servicemen. Recently he admitted that some of those comments were "over the top".

What we have is a man who made false accusations about US foreign policy and once claimed to be a war criminal running for President.

It is ironic that this man is making many more accusations today about US foreign policy in another war. Meanwhile the war in Afghanistan has reached a turning point with its first democratically elected President in its history. This is a major victory in the face of the Taliban, its many warlords and ethnic strife. The lack of violence on election day was a signal that the Taliban are finished and the warlords are ready for democracy.

Kerry is so desperate for power that all he can do is try to discredit the US internationally and insult our allies. He will do or say anything to gain power. In a election I understand one must attack one's opponent, but to undermine our foreign policy I think is too far.

Bush has done a great job.
