(July 30th)John Kerry said Friday he would put Osama bin Laden on trial in U.S. courts rather than an international tribunal to ensure the "fastest, surest route" to a murder conviction if the terrorist mastermind is captured while he is president.
Put him on trial? I thought that just killing him would be the proper response. But maybe I'm too "simplistic". I mean, OBL has only admitted and bragged about being the head of Al-Qaeda, masterminding the 9-11 hijackings, and is a known terrorist. But gee, let's put him on trial. That's assuming he isn't currently a smear on a cave wall in Tora-Bora. And what do you expect from a man who says crap like this:
Let there be no mistake: I will never hesitate to use force when it is required. Any attack will be met with a swift and certain response.
That one quote says it all. Rather than prevent an attack by taking out terrorists whenever possible, John Fonda Kerry will sit back and let an attack happen before he'll actually do something about it.
That is the Democrat philosophy. That is their forign policy in a nutshell. Only do something AFTER thousands of Americans (or more, g-d forbid) have died. Don't do anything till then, because we wouldn't want to provoke the American hating genocidal madmen who have already declared war on us!
With all the problems I have with Bush, there's a simple reason why I will be voting for him. He wants to protect Americans. He believes in STOPPING any attacks from happening, before American lives are lost.
John Fonda Kerry will sit back and wait for the blow before he does anything. And he just admitted to it.
