JF Kerry and Rolling Stone magazine
In his latest bid to avoid appearing Presidential, candidate JF Kerry has returned to the scene of yesterday's deleted expletive to grant an interview to that Rolling Stone magazine.
The questions were straight from the ABB arse-kisser's handbook, and I saw one answer which struck my fancy then stopped reading.
Q: Do you think it's [terrorists' hatred] directed at the United States?
A: It is now. Look, there's no negotiating with these guys. They don't hold territory; they don't have a kingdom; they don't have a government; they don't have a guiding philosophy -- they just hate. They hate what they are not. And they want everything to be what they are, and they want that kind of control.
Here's the President from his address to a joint session of Congress on Thursday night, September 20, 2001:
Our war on terror begins with al Qaeda, but it does not end there. It will not end until every terrorist group of global reach has been found, stopped and defeated.
Americans are asking, why do they hate us? They hate what we see right here in this chamber -- a democratically elected government. Their leaders are self-appointed. They hate our freedoms -- our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other.
They want to overthrow existing governments in many Muslim countries, such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan. They want to drive Israel out of the Middle East. They want to drive Christians and Jews out of vast regions of Asia and Africa.
These terrorists kill not merely to end lives, but to disrupt and end a way of life. With every atrocity, they hope that America grows fearful, retreating from the world and forsaking our friends. They stand against us, because we stand in their way.
The President understood it then and there. It's taken Kerry this long, and we cannot be certain that he truly understands it now. His language becomes distracted when he tries to conceptualize.
And he won't concede until February, even after a landslide.
