One sentence says it all, or does it?

OpinionJournal - Best of the Web Today:

"So in 1971 Kerry's view was that American servicemen in Vietnam were murderers. In 1992, they were no better or worse than anyone else. Today he proudly claims the mantle of war hero."

Check out what the tehran times has to say in response to an email from Kerry's group:

"The office of Senator John Kerry, the frontrunner in the Democratic presidential primary in the U.S., sent the Mehr News Agency an e-email saying that Kerry will try to repair the damage done by the incumbent president if he wins the election."

One of my favorites:

Kerry - "The United States is still reacting in very much the 1945 mood and postwar cold-war period when we reacted to the forces which were at work in World War II and came out of it with this paranoia about the Russians and how the world was going to be divided up between the super powers. . . ."

So I guess when Russia took over East Germany that was just paranoia? How about when they backed North Korea and North Vietnam. How about the cold war? Did he forget about that too? Crap I'm not even old enough to have been through all of that but it's right there in History, he lived through this stuff with a very very warped perspective. The perspective of an altruistic American that believes the world's logic follows the same path as his own.

People like him believe that Communism poses no threat to the U.S or it's "interests" so long as it's not on American soil? They do not see or choose not to see the big picture. The big picture is world economy and balance of power. Damn.
