John Kerry's Plan for Iraq
...to not simply abandon Iraq, but to toss out the sovereignty of its freely elected constitutional government and invite the terrorist states of Iran and Syria to help make decisions over Iraq's future.

I can't come up with adequate language with which to insult this guy. Thank God he's not the president.

SA 4203 . Mr. KERRY submitted an amendment intended to be proposed by him to the bill S. 2766, to authorize appropriations for fiscal year 2007 for military activities of the Department of Defense, for military construction, and for defense activities of the Department of Energy, to prescribe personnel strengths for such fiscal year for the Armed Forces, and for other purposes; which was ordered to lie on the table; as follows:

On page 437, between lines 2 and 3, insert the following:


(a) Withdrawal of Troops From Iraq.--

(1) SCHEDULE FOR WITHDRAWAL.--The President shall reach an agreement as soon as possible with the Government of Iraq on a schedule for the withdrawal of United States combat troops from Iraq by December 31, 2006, leaving only forces that are critical to completing the mission of standing up Iraqi security forces.

(2) CONSULTATION WITH CONGRESS REQUIRED.--The President shall consult with Congress regarding such schedule and shall present such withdrawal agreement to Congress immediately upon the completion of the agreement.

(3) MAINTENANCE OF OVER-THE-HORIZON TROOP PRESENCE.--The President should maintain an over-the-horizon troop presence to prosecute the war on terror and protect regional security interests.

(b) Iraq Summit.--The President should convene a summit as soon as possible that includes the leaders of the Government of Iraq, leaders of the governments of each country bordering Iraq, representatives of the Arab League, the Secretary General of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, representatives of the European Union, and leaders of the governments of each permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, for the purpose of reaching a comprehensive political agreement for Iraq that addresses fundamental issues including federalism, oil revenues, the militias, security guarantees, reconstruction, economic assistance, and border security.
Hasn't he done anything treasonous enough yet? I wanna impeach him, and put him on trial.
You know nothing ever gets accomplished in meetings. All the real work is done by the most important guy and one or two of his henchmen, just before or just after the meeting. They just use the meeting as cover to make it look like everybody got a chance to talk. We should assemble all these jokers he wants in a room -- all the Arabs, EU leaders, UN guys -- and let them all talk to each other till kingdom come. Meanwhile America should keep its troops in Iraq for at least the next ten years and kill as many insurgents as they possibly can. Also try to keep the electricy turned on in Baghdad. Whenever the power goes out in the big hotels the journalists get really edgy.

The real danger of a President Kerry (G-d forbid) is that he would take the meetings seriously and try to let all these clowns dictate American foreign policy.
And even worse, Toby, he'd let them dictate Iraqi domestic policy.
OK, totally off-subject, but Happy Father's Day to the Coffeehousers! : )
I just saw the most fun throwback to the election... a bumper sticker that said "John Kerry - it's time for some sanity in the white house."

I think they got the wrong letter. S isn't all that close to V, but I'll excuse it.
