Kerry says U.S. needs terror war allies

NEW YORK, Dec. 8 (UPI) -- U.S. Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., said the United States must convince other countries the war on terror is to protect our common security.

In prepared remarks to the Council on Foreign Relations in New York Thursday, Kerry said the war on terror has "drawn us smack in the middle of an internal struggle in the Islamic world," and that region must be helped to change politically, economically and ideologically.

"One, he said, "make sure the right side wins the war of ideas within the Islamic world; two, build up diversified economies and civil society; and, three, end the empire of oil. These three challenges make it abundantly clear this is not a war the United States should fight alone."

Kerry said that "at home, in the Middle East and around the world" U.S. officials must convince people the war on terror is a "common fight against a threat to our collective security, not just America's fight against terrorists."
