Frankham BS: Scott Ritter:Kerry also to blame for war (258* d) RE: BS: Scott Ritter:Kerry also to blame for war 14 Feb 04


At the risk of receiving another flame, I will say this about Kerry.
Ritter's statement is simplistic.

"But John Kerry seems to share in this culpability, and if he wants to be the next president of the United States, he must first convince the American people that his actions somehow differ from those of the man he seeks to replace."

Maybe, maybe not. It depends upon how he interpreted the intelligence given to him at the time. He, however, was not responsible for the unilateral pre-emptive strike on Iraq. Aside
from Ritter's accusations, there is no credible evidence to support this view. He may have been confused on the issue. Who wasn't?
He is a military guy and this motivates his thinking.

I understand that Dean supported the Vietnam War and that Kucinich did not. Does this make Dean an accomplice to the debacle in Vietnam?
