Secret Plan Hinted, Zapruder Film at 11

Kerry Pledges Iraq Troop Cut Within 4 Years

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio, Aug. 1 -- John F. Kerry pledged Sunday he would substantially reduce U.S. troop strength in Iraq (news - web sites) by the end of his first term in office but declined to offer any details of what he said is his plan to attract significantly more allied military and financial support there.

In interviews on television talk shows, the Democratic presidential nominee said that he saw no reason to send more troops to Iraq and that he would seek allied support to draw down U.S. forces there. "I will have significant, enormous reduction in the level of troops," he said on ABC's "This Week."

The incumbent also has a secret plan for reducing the number of troops in Iraq by 2008 - it's called WINNING THE WAR.

What is particularly galling about this is that once again we see, and the press misses, the sheer arrogance of this guy from Massachusetts. He has a plan for reducing the troops in Iraq, - "I know that as president there's huge leverage that will be available to me, enormous cards to play, and I'm not going to play them in public." IOW, you're just going to have to trust him because he knows better and he'll tell you when he's ready.
Reminded that he sounded like Richard M. Nixon, who campaigned in 1968 by saying he had a secret plan to end the war in Vietnam, Kerry responded: "I don't care what it sounds like. The fact is that I'm not going to negotiate in public today without the presidency, without the power."

And that is why you will lose, grasshopper.

We didn't used to have "exit strategies." We had victories. Willy and Joe knew that the only road home led through Berlin. Now that we have "exit strategies" we also have something else that we didn't used to see regularly - losses.
Thanks to a primary system run by party extremists, both parties can now have uber-partisan candidates that are truly unpalatable to the other side! Yum!
