It’s the wrong war at the wrong time [but not a mistake!], but I’m committed to winning it; We’re spending too much on Iraq ($200 billion), but I’d send more troops and equipment; I’ll bring in more nations to help Iraq, but the other nations currently in Iraq were coerced and do not provide much assistance; Saddam and Iraq were a grave threat, but Osama is the only terrorist worth pursuing; Terrorists are pour[i]ng into Iraq, but Iraq is a distraction to the war on terror.
This perfectly encapsulates Kerry’s position on the war: sounds great until you start pairing up all the conflicting statements. Though all the inconsistencies may not be there, I think it does show that Kerry still has som un-muddling to do with his position on Iraq.
