"If (Iraq) survives as a democracy, I do believe that
you're going to be able to say that the price was worth it."

-- Bob Kerrey

Where do I begin....
First of all it is interesting that he said "...YOU'RE going to be able to say.."
Not WE or I. YOU.

Then you have to wonder who he means when he presumes it will be worth it. To the U.S. public, to the U.S. soldiers, to the people of Iraq, to the oil companies and corporations?
Who is he speaking for?

Well, at any rate, try to catch the Bill Moyers Journal and judge for yourself:

This week on Bill Moyers Journal (check local listings)

Former Democratic senator Bob Kerrey is making his case for a refocused mission in Iraq. The 9/11 Commission member and Vietnam war veteran tells Bill Moyers why having US military forces in Iraq is necessary in fighting terrorism, but calls for a bipartisan plan to end US policing and occupation in the war torn nation.

One of Washington's most influential public advocates, Joan Claybrook of Public Citizen, talks about what is at stake in the ethical reforms under consideration in Congress.

Bill Moyers shares his perspective on the Vietnam war in an essay featuring archival audio of conversation between President Lyndon Johnson and US National Security Advisor McGeorge Bundy.
