Letter From 'Irak'...

9/11 and Iraq Vet To Kerry: Stop Stealing Saddam's Old Talking Points

November 2, 2006 -- In a moving letter to The Post, a heroic New Yorker serving in Iraq had a blunt message yesterday for John Kerry - lay off the troops!

"In his remarks, Sen. Kerry inferred that many of us over here are in Iraq because we are not smart enough, didn't study hard, and had no other options in life," he wrote to The Post.
"Let me just tell you, there are many other people who share that view - the enemy."


He pointed out that Saddam Hussein tried to spread exactly the same propaganda about American forces and said that the terrorist insurgents are still trying to propagate the myth.

Yes, Kerry made a mistake--a big one--but not for the reasons most people think. Kerry blew his political chances, not for what he said and not for his apology after, but because the entire issue showed him to be a weak man.

He showed himself to be weak by being so angry in the first place--angry about the last election, angry about the Swift Boat vets, angry about everything. He showed himself to be a wimpy man by reacting so quickly to the criticism, and by allowing it to change his behavior and his stance.

Kerry looks weak when he allows the opinion of other people to so easily rule him and influence what he does and how he feels. Having someone so easily malleable--and by the same people for whom he expresses such contempt--will never make him look strong. In the end, he ends up looking like some little kid who wasn't chosen first for the ball team and pouts all the way home.

He'd have come out better if he'd stood by his own words. People could've forgiven his thinking the military is dumb, but they're not going to put a little kid in the office of the president. If Kerry is so easily influenced by OUR opinion of him, what would he do with the feelings of those overseas?

Trying to please everyone means you're ruled by your emotions. We need somebody a hell of a lot stronger and sure of himself than that. His own insecurities did him in; he Swift Boated himself.

BROOKE--Yes, he thinks he isn't talking to 'real' people--that his words won't impact them, or maybe he thinks he's such a great guy that everyone will always love him.

What an idiot!

Brooke-This "opinion" has been held by politicians for 70 yrs. or better! My Dad, who was AF,told me about how military were treated, especially by dhimmicrats after wartime! Go read about what happened to veterans after WWI, it wasn't pretty during the Depression!
Leftistas have despised our military as "lesser" humans, tools to be used because they can't "think" for themselves!
