Senator Kerry Confirms His Hatred Of The Military

On December 6, 2005, WorldNetDaily reported,

"In accusations about American troops reminiscent of what the young John Kerry said to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 1971, the senator and 2004 Democratic presidential nominee told CBS "Face the Nation" host Bob Schieffer there was no reason for U.S. soldiers to continue "terrorizing" Iraqi children.

"And there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women, breaking sort of the customs of the – of – the historical customs, religious customs," Kerry said Sunday. "Whether you like it or not ... Iraqis should be doing that."

On Monday, October 30, 2006, in a speech at California's Pasadena City College Kerry said, "We're here to talk about education, but I want to say before - you know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't you get stuck in Iraq."

Then on Tuesday in response to calls he apologize for the remarks he made on Monday, Kerry defiantly said, "I apologize to no one for my criticism of the President and his broken policies."

And he went on, "My statement yesterday, and the White House knows this full well, was a botched joke about the President and the President's people, not about the troops."

On Wednesday, amid a torrent of calls from within his own party that he apologize, comes this "statement" posted on his official government web site:

As a combat veteran, I want to make it clear to anyone in uniform and to their loved ones: my poorly stated joke at a rally was not about, and never intended to refer to any troop.

I sincerely regret that my words were misinterpreted to wrongly imply anything negative about those in uniform, and I personally apologize to any service member, family member, or American who was offended.

It is clear the Republican Party would rather talk about anything but their failed security policy. I don’t want my verbal slip to be a diversion from the real issues. I will continue to fight for a change of course to provide real security for our country, and a winning strategy for our troops.

Unfortunately, Kerry keeps spinning his comments as a "joke," and seems to feel that the only way you could have been offended by his remarks were if you "misinterpreted" his remarks. The truth is that Kerry looks down his long nose at those in the military, and generally hates the military.

In response to the remarks Senator Kerry made this week a group of soldiers from the Minnesota National Guard stationed in Iraq made up the following poster which speaks for itself.
