Well, Kerry is counting on being able to bring more allies into the fray and speeding up the pace of Iraqi training along with the novel idea of getting them out of where they will be shot at to train. Now if that is a gamble you are willing to take, that's up to you on November 2nd. If you want to go to the records, Kerry and the Democrats have a bigger history of supporting what they call conventional forces in the military. That means getting more people into the volunteer armed forces. Where they differ is that Bush and the Republicans often support big weapons systems and contractors in place of conventional troops. That was the big theme for Rumsfeld when he wanted to remake the military.<br><br>This is all pure speculation and as I said, I don't really stand by all the draft hoopla. I do believe, however, that Kerry's plan is better when it comes to avoiding the neccesity for a draft, if that is what we are talking about. Speaking aside here, we're a long way from Walter Mondale here with, "both of us are going to raise taxes. The difference is one of us is not going to tell you that. I just did." Mondale was right, but he lost... pretty big.<br><br>Those bills that you are talking about were protests on the Iraq War before it started. They were never meant to pass, or if they were, it was meant to keep us out of war in the first place. It's not part of the Democratic platform and I don't see any reason in holding John Kerry to it.<br><br>-- Charlie Alpha Roger Yankee Whiskey<br>
