Kerry Would Have Kept Saddam in Power

Kerry Accuses Bush of Incompetence in Iraq

John Kerry claims that our world would be more stable if George Bush had kept Saddam Hussein in power. Using the twisted logic of the pacifist, Kerry would have a President of the United States contain evil within certain boundaries hoping that it would spill out no further. Nevill Chamberlin once hoped evil could be contained by ceding Poland to a similar dictator; in Kerry's case, he would have ceded Iraq. Thus, John Kerry proposes to become the Dutch Boy of the White House by sticking his finger in the Dike of Terror. It worked in the fabled tale because those who did not notice the problem eventually came to help. No such help exists among the pacifist French, Russian and German governments who ignored the problem plainly evident to them.

Winston Churchill said, "Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery." Totalitarianism has the virtue of imposing degrees of the misery of Socialism in equal proportion to the whims of cruelty devised by the dictator.

John Kerry has devised just such a formula in his political attempt to snatch the Presidency using the same dis-honoralbe tactics he foisted upon the American people in Congressional hearings more than 30 years ago after returning from Vietnam.
