7. He stood up and said, this War is immoral
Edited on Mon Nov-06-06 09:28 AM by TayTay
and wrong. It is not just a bad decision, it is not just bad people in command and it is not just a failed policy. It is immoral.

It is immoral.

Think about that for a minute. There is no counter to that. Hillary doesn't have one, neither do the other Vichy-Dems. The Repubs don't have one and don't care.

It is immoral.

This is 'check' on the political game board. It is not 'check-mate.' The board is reset on Nov 8th. And this damn war is still immoral.

What stronger voice or opinion is there? Kerry knows this. He is under constant attack because he speaks about this in moral terms and asks people to consider what we are doing, as a nation, in Iraq. That is what you do after the election. You talk about Iraq. The haters will hate you, no matter what. There is no counter to that. They hate, it's what they do.

Again, it's check, not check-mate. Stand up and say it again. And again. And again. And again. Because that is the only way it's not about you. It's about 'us.' This is what brave men and women of character and integrity do. They take the hit, get back up, dust themselves off and go back to work. Becuase it's not about them. It's about us. And we have to get out of this war before we destroy our very souls.
