I finally have a blog! This is my place to discuss my job search, my stitching, my addiction to the internet and whatever else crosses my mind! So stay, read, stitch and chat with me :)

If ever anyone needed a clue fairy

It's John Kerry! Could the man be any more clueless about Iraq? He keeps harping on the fact that Al Qaeda attacked us on 9/11, not Iraq or Saddam Hussein, and the invasion of Iraq and ousting of Hussein was a mistake and the wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time. He keeps harping on Afghanistan. Now that the Duelfer report has been released, he's harping on the fact that Iraq had no WMD and how Bush made a colossal mistake in judgement.

How conveniently he forgets to mention the next lines in the report where it was stated that Saddam had the means to obtain WMD courtesy of several European and Asian countries and the intention to do so once the sanctions were lifted. And let's forget the fact that he was skimming the Oil-for-Food program to pay off those countries in exchange for helping lift the sanctions at the UN. I'm sure it was mere coincidence that all of those countries refused to join the US Coalition.

Is intention really not enough for Kerry? Would he really rather that Hussein attacked us first? To use a rather crude analogy, if he had even the smallest bit of evidence that a man had the intent to eventually rape and kill his daughter, would he really wait until the man followed through before making every effort to protect his daughter? Surely not. He'd make darn sure there was no way that man could ever get near his daughter. So why should America not act to protect herself in the same way against the intentions of a rapist and murderer like Saddam Hussein?

I am right there with you on this one, as usual! ;) I am honestly scared of Kerry and what will happen if, by some weird chance, he is elected. I have to have faith that education of voters will win out and Bush will be re-elected, but some days it's hard to have that faith when Clinton was elected TWICE.

God help us.
