While John Kerry is off jet setting across the world in Tear-aye-saah’s jet, burning thousands of gallons of jet fuel, he’s lecturing other nations on how baaaad the ‘ol United States is.
Every day I thank God he’s not our president.
The United States must rebuild the power of the United Nations and help “end the empire of oil” if it wants to win the “war on terror,” U.S. Sen. John Kerry said Sunday. The Massachusetts Democrat avoided explicit criticisms of the Bush administration during a wide-ranging speech on the global dynamics of terror. But he said Bush’s policy of imposing democracy in Iraq and Afghanistan risked looking like a crusade.
Kerry, who lost to President Bush in the 2004 presidential election, avoided explicit criticism of the U.S. administration during a wide-ranging speech on the global dynamics of terrorism. But he said Bush’s policy of imposing democracy in Iraq and Afghanistan risked looking like a crusade in Arab, Muslim eyes.
“If it is seen as the result of an army marching through Muslim lands, it will fail,” Kerry told an audience at the University of Ulster in Londonderry, the second-largest city in Northern Ireland.
Kerry said developing effective replacements for oil-based fuels also was key. The West’s appetite for petroleum from the Middle East “has frustrated every impulse towards modernization of the region, while giving its regimes the resources to hold onto power. The international community of democratic nations cannot afford to continue funding both sides of the war on terror. We must end the empire of oil.”
And just which one of your half dozen SUV’s do you plan to destroy John, in the name of ending the empire of oil?
More ‘Do as I say, not as I do’ psychobabble from the most liberal Senator in the nation. It’s a pity that the press follows him around.
