A very interesting view. I see why we did not invade Iraq with overwhelming force, as the whole Muslim world would panic and say they want our oil(which I do) Like the President says, the Iraqis must stand up on their own, and they are. Another good line is:
"When it comes to stances on Iraq, Bush and Kerry exhibit no major differences. An exception is Kerry's desire to involve European allies and regain their sympathy while at the same time not giving too great a role to the UN." and
"With this in mind, we must judge Kerry's half- hearted allusions to re- building America's alliances and extending a helping hand to the Islamic world."
I dont think it will work as Germany and others have already said they would not help even if Kerry is elected. Why would they, as Kerry has said it is the wrong war..blah blah...and they are PO'ed about us exposing the oil for food scam and the millions they were making off Saddam.
Anyway, It is clear they know where Bush stands. Keep the support there, train the Iraqis, and soon they will fight for their selves. The last major offensive, the Iraqis had two battalions and one US battalion, and it was a success.
