I made note of this at someone’s comment section yesterday…. I forget where…and Boortz notes this morning, a WaPo story about Kerry’s approach to foreign policy:

“‘Kerry’s belief in working with allies runs so deep that he has maintained that the loss of American life can be better justified if it occurs in the course of a mission with international support. In 1994, discussing the possibility of U.S. troops being killed in Bosnia, he said, ‘If you mean dying in the course of the United Nations effort, yes, it is worth that. If you mean dying American troops unilaterally going in with some false presumption that we can affect the outcome, the answer is unequivocally no.’ ‘”

Dale at Q&O notes

“Notice the last paragraph in particular, because it reflects a mindset that reflexively looks to the UN for legitimacy.”

Dale goes on to say, too, that;

This simply highlights, once again, Mr. Kerry’s essential weakness on matters of national security, as well as an excessive skepticism about the use of American power. He was just as wrong about Bosnia as he was about the Gulf War.”

And so, dear reader, what this boils down to is, in Kerry’s view, the United States isn’t worth dying for. The UN is.

You who have served in the military, or you who have family in the military; or who have had people who served and died in the military; You’ve just been called international war criminals again. You’re being called fools, by the man who would have your vote.

And no, this is current Kerry… not a tape from the 1970’s lies he told before the Senate. There’s a reason he hasn’t backed of from that testimony… There’s a reason Kerry hasn’t issued any apology for those lies he told, even when people like Jane Fondle, have done so… He still thinks that way! THIS is why what he did and said during Vietnam is of such import… it’s a good view of John Kerry today. And Kerry has a long history of this kind of nonsense.

Boortz says:

“Put these statements together with some other favorites .. the famous “global test” line for instance.  Can it be any more clear?  Kerry is, as I have been warning for six months, soft on sovereignty.  Kerry, as president, would feel compelled to play a grandiose game of international “Mommy May I?” before he takes steps to protect this country and its citizens. “

Do we really want to give the reins of power to a man whose designs include a weaker America, and the sacrafice of American sovereignty, to a group of people (the UN) who really doesn’t want the US to succeed? The world cannot afford John Kerry as President.
