Let's look over what Kerry said...<br><br>"No president, though all of American history, has ever ceded, and nor would I, the right to preempt in any way necessary to protect the United States of America. But if and when you do it, Jim, you have to do it in a way that passes the test, that passes the global test where your countrymen, your people understand fully why you're doing what you're doing and you can prove to the world that you did it for legitimate reasons." (source)<br><br>Once again, "Prove it to the world that you did it for legitimate reasons."<br><br>If a President cannot prove that his own reasoning, heading into a war, was legitimate after the fact, than there is a significant problem with that president's leadership. Where is this asking permission stuff coming from?<br><br>-- Charlie Alpha Roger Yankee Whiskey<br>
legitimate reason? what about convincing 1/2 of your own population that the country you are attacking is an exporter / trainer / supporter of terrorism even though there's no supporting evidence? even though the most recent WMD report indicates that saddam might have pursued WMD some day to protect itself against iran but not to use for terror? <br><br>iraq could still yet end up just like iran. we're losing the war there.<br><br><br>--<br>one of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. -Plato
