TextRemember that Kerry would have doubled the size of our special forces and added two divisions. There is going to be a draft if Kerry had won or not. Its unavoidable. Remember that there was a draft during WW2. Wed have an even greater army if Kerry was president but at the same time hed have ignored nearly all our threats until it was to late. We are damned either way. His domestic policies would have been as loony left just as Bushs are loony right.
TextUnder John Kerry Bin Laden wouldve been caught or killed by this coming June. It seems W really doesnt care if the worlds most dangerous man is on the loose or not. Come on. If W really backed up all his rhetoric on Bin Laden then Bin Laden wouldnt have lasted for another two months after 9/11. Sure we had the big fireworks display in Tora Bora but when we had his back to the wall we let him go. He did not escape we let him go. Itd be nice to think Bin Ladens dead. Until somebody comes up with an identifiable corpse hes living quite comfortably most likely in an affluent Pakistani suburb planning our deaths. There are no known buisness ties between John Kerry and the Bin Laden family. There are billions worth of shady buisness deals between the Bushes and Bin Ladens going back close to two decades.
TextWake up and smell it folks. No matter where you are on this planet evil greedy men control your fate. W is a terrible liar. John Kerry wouldve been a phenominal liar. Its as easy to tell when W is lying as when Clinton was lying like when Clintons nose turned red and he bagan to scratch himself nervously. Ill go one even better. Al Gore would have gotten Bin Laden but just as Kerry would have lost the war on terror. The Bushes dont really care who dies and this is illustrated in huge bold lettering with Prescott Bush and Hitler.
TextHow much is enough? How much lewd power does one need to have? For Bush for Kerry for the Al Qaedas for the Chi-Coms etc...None of these maniacs truly represent any of their peoples as a whole. None of them. How dare any of them just toy with the lives of millions for personal gain. Remember that the Bushes are making billions off of Bin Laden being on the loose. Chenys Halliburton stocks just rain cash on him. If Bin Laden really wanted to get over on the Bushes hed give himself up so the Bushes wouldnt have an excuse to plunder us.
TextI am not religious at all but I do believe we are all doomed. Even if Kerry was in office 9/11 would still have happened. We would have torn Al Qaeda up by the roots by now though. Its all the factions and sleeper cells with no figurehead that wouldve been ignored and been our downfall. We are all doomed.

John Kerry never wanted or hoped to be president. It was all a front- a running mate for Bush destined to lose,,,,An act right out of Hollywood
TextI just feel despite his goofy liberalism Kerry would have been a more domestcally competent president. Foreign policy would have been bagging Bin Laden and pulling out. Still, Ive never met the man. Did you actually speak to him? Did he just shake your hand on a campaign stop? Kerry and Bush wouldnt consider the average taxed to death not rich enough citizen good enough to take seriously. Neither really represent the population as a whole at all either.
TextThe original point was Kerry would have gotten Bin Laden I and several Marine friends feel the same way. Now Ive never served in the military but probably will when the draft comes around and the cut off age is 35. Im 30. I just hope theyve finally replaced the m16 when I do get drafted. Kerry is an Annapolis graduate and knows eons more about military doctrine than W ever will. Whether you like his politics or not. I dont.
TextKerry has been in real firefights and killed people. The whole Swiftboat Vets for Truth thing was disgusting. I dont care if Kerry was LaRouche disciple he still served quite honorably and its a national disgrace that his military record was dragged through the mud like that. Now, how about this. John McCain would have gotten Bin Laden.
TextJohn McCain would have eaten Al Qaeda for breakfast lunch and dinner. If anybody knows how to deal with fanatics like this its him. Remember when McCain was a candidate? Remember how his own party dared to question his sanity and his patriotism? Remember the televised "town hall" when McCain confronted W about it and W looked like he was about to run off the stage and stuttered his responses?
TextOf course not. There will be another 9/11. As long as W is in office we will not get Bin Laden. If he does Ill be ecstatic to eat my hat but its not going to happen. This is the gravest situation the world has been in since WW2. You know when Ws granddad sold the nazis all that steel and made the family fortune. Id love for someone to debate me on Ws grandad and the Bush Bin Laden connections. Clinton plays a pretty big role in all this too. Nobody remebers that despite signing a secret order to kill Bin Laden Clinton had Bin laden himself in the crosshairs of Predator drones three times and wouldnt pull the trigger fearing it would make us look bad overseas. Its all public record folks. All of it.
TextThe Bushes are here to make money and to be feared. They are doing it at a prophetic rate. Kerry would have gouged the middle class about half as much but his chances of getting Bin Laden wouldve been much much better. His understanding of military politics and what it takes on the ground to get the job done is really only surpassed by the likes of McCain and Colin Powell. Kerrys miltary understanding couldve gotten him. His politics wouldsve cost us dearly. I wouldve followed Colin Powell into hell if he became president. Powell would be such an overmatch for any potential enemy itd be no contest. Of course W who would barely listen to him at all made him sick of politics and this time he wont be back. Powell is an almost perfect match of leadership, political skill and a masters level of military knowledge and experience.
TextIf we survive Ws presidency cause Bin Laden will always be at large during it. One can only hope and hope very hard that Mrs. Powell will convice him to save us and get Bin Laden.
TextIf Bin Laden makes the mistake of trying to cross through the border regions back into Afghanistan weve got 30,000 troops in the mountains and caves waiting for him. A couple thousand civilian mercs too looking for that 50million payday. Heres a prediction. Bin Laden gets seen several times. Each time he gets away and begins to play on us not being able to catch him.Humiliating. All its gonna take is a loose cannon. It wont be an army that gets him itll be one -three very pissed off mercs or spec ops that have just had it. Crossing boarders with ease at night they get within killing distance and draw straws on who gets the first shot. The first shot is a perfect headshot. The other two to the body.
TextThey make it back across the borders at night unseen. Amidst all the chaos nobody could tell where the shots came from. The news spreads like wildfire and Bin Ladens corpse ends up on a Pakistani government slab. During the autopsy they pull out three 7.62x51 US rounds. Anybody could use these rounds though. But the US officials present at the autopsy to make sure hes dead and that its him say "well take those". The three men had been back and made the claim. Nobody believed them untill groups of al qaeda fighters started straggling down out of the mountains with their guns over their heads. The three mens rifles and the bullets taken from Bin Laden are taken for ballistics testing.
TextOne week later its nonstop 24 hour news on nobody knows who killed Bin laden. Somewhere stateside three men split 50million and are entered into federal protection for the rest of their lives.
TextI hope this is what weve been saving him for.

Kerry and Bush were never opponents. They were set up to divide us, and it worked. We have always been divided, but they pretty much split us apart, and burned the seams.
