...the green light enveloped you securely and you didn't have a care in the world, because John Kerry had "a plan?" Ahhh, those were the days.

But enough of the nostalgia.

What would be different NOW, if Kerry had been president instead of "W."

For example:

What would John Kerry do to prevent the Mullahs from succeeding in their efforts to go nuclear? Well, for starters he would have given them everything they needed to accomplish that task, then trust them not to use it. Really!

He had "a plan"...

"[the] ...policy of accommodation toward Iran's nuclear aspirations is clearly outlined on Kerry's campaign website as well.
Under the heading "Prevent Iran From Developing Nuclear Weapons," the Kerry campaign makes the same point emphatically – that the U.S. should still give or sell the nuclear fuel Iran wants in exchange for a promise not to build nuclear weapons."

More of "the plan"...

" Kerry has embraced the entire political agenda of Akbarpour and other wealthy Iranian-Americans embracing Tehran. Those positions include:
(1) - ending the fingerprinting of Iranian visitors to the U.S.;
(2) - expanding "family reunion" visas to allow extended family members of Iranians living in the U.S. to immigrate here legally and in large numbers;
(3) - offering a "dialogue" with the hard-line, terrorist-supporting clerics in Tehran;
(4) - help Iran join the World Trade Organization."


Perhaps because his three top campaign contributors were Iranian, with varying degrees of attachment to Tehran's Mullahcracy?
(ibid), and...

Nothing like standing with your head in the noose, with the enemy's hand on the trap-door release lever, to make him come to his senses.

Whew. Close call.
