Kerry said that the United Nations should have control over most of our foreign military operations. "I'm an internationalist. I'd like to see our troops dispersed through the world only at the directive of the United Nations." :scrutiny:

Of all leftists' wacky views, I truly think this one is the craziest -- that our foreign policy should be determined to a substantial degree by an international body unaccountable to the American people.

Why on earth would an international body like the UN do anything in our interest? 2/3 of the UN's members loathe the US and are jealous of us.

***? If 'the international community' approves of something, that makes it right? France and Nigeria give it the stamp of approval so we should do it? Madness!

Yes...turn over out military power to an external bureaucracy which, by definition, does not have our best interests in mind. Brilliant!

The blatant hatred of the U.S. by the Left is becoming more and more apparent.

Clinton, Clinton, and Soros put out a hit on Dean and successfully shot him out of the saddle. The guy self-destructed in one skinny week.

Now Kerry is riding the horse. I fully expect Clinton, Clinton, and Soros to do the same thing with Kerry. Kerry has more baggage than any political animal with which I am familar. Any stage of the guy's life can be mined for pure political gold. He can be gutted on Vietnam alone. He can be crushed on his geopolitical pronouncements and votes. He can be desroyed by exposing how he has systematically evicerated the intelligence arm of the US.

Kerry is a target rich environment. And Big Media will turn on him at the right time. What Kerry has done is just too spectacular to ignore.

So, waitone, is it your unstated conclusion that the Clinton's et al, are pumping up non-viable dem candidates in 2004, to give Bush the election, thereby paving the way for Hillary in 2008? Or will Hillary jump in at convention time in 2004?

One thing I can't figure out is how Kennedy figures into this...he's actively backing Kerry, and wields some power in the dem party; what's the relationship between Kennedy and the Clinton faction?

He may call himself an "internationalist," but I say he's a socialist parasite—and the next Dukakis into the bargain.

I say he's a traitor. He wants to yeild control of our armies to a foreign entity. And the UN is CERTAINLY a foreign entity.

like pretty much everything else that comes out about the Ketchup King...

I can't imagine how this is going to help him win the election.

Of course, I still don't understand how he's winning the primaries...

I mean, is this sad old clown really the best the Democrats have left?

So...if you don't like the government and it's "international", where do you move?

As a female who hates femenism as it is played out today . I truly dislike John Kerry as much as Bill Clinton hated our military. I do not use the word hate aganist a person because I do not hate a person. But I do hate an ideology. I will never, never trust a democrat ever again in my life. If John Kerry wins I will watch with amusement and fear to some extent to see what happens. I do not trust him. I've already decided if the ???? hits the fan I know where to go and who to trust. (kinda easy if you live in a rural area )If we get socialized health care I as a physician will quit. I spent 12 past high school training to be a physician on my own dollor. I will not play by their rules ---I refuse. And it is not money ---it is the principle of the thing. I have been a physician since 1988 and I have never made over 100,000 dollars but I loathe the paper work and the loss of freedom of physicians and PATIENTS.:fire:

Kerry is far more exposed on the issues than even Dean. If you read the Crimson article you will find that his views have not changed in 30 years. Give him credit for consistency. However, his entire program is morally and intellectually bankrupt. He is a 60's socialist that does not realize that the world has moved on.

I don't have any use for Kerry, but this "Internationalist" stuff is from 1970. Whether Bush, Kerry or Clinton, teeny-bopppers and early-twenties folks have been know to be overcome with a case of the stoopids.

I'm well and truly puzzled by what's going on here. Kerry is an absolute worst-case-scenario, he's the *creepiest* thing the Dems could have come up with.

Much as I'll hate doing it, SO LONG as the AWB doesn't pass, I'll vote Bush against Kerry. Anybody THAT BAD on gun rights must go down in crashing flames. If he wins, it'll be a signal that a serious grabber can win the White House and if that happens...we're hosed.

Seriously, guys: the idea that a hardcore grabber cannot win a national-level election has been acting as a brake on the worst Dems here in California, esp. since the Gore loss. If those brakes come off, God help us all.

I smell the Clinton's hands in all this. They want Bush to win in '04 so Hillary! will have a free shot in '08. Nothing else makes sense.

How old will Hillary be in '08? I don't see her as a viable candidate then... or really having enough dem party influence to make it. Isn't Kennedy pushing Kerry and still pretty much in control of the party in the background, and therefore the nomination? Somebody sure cut off Dean just as he got rolling. Kerry on gun control seems the same old dem stuff like the Klintons were pushing. Scarry.
