Kerry Made a Bush League Error on Iraq: "To win the debates and the election, Kerry needs to establish himself as the clear alternative to a president who has lied us into a quagmire. His forthright speech at the Democratic convention shows he is capable of this: "Before you go to battle, you have to be able to look a parent in the eye and truthfully say. 'We tried everything possible to avoid sending your son or daughter into harm's way. But we had no choice. We had to protect the American people, fundamental American values from a threat that was real and imminent.'"
These guys continue to get it wrong, and I think they do it deliberately. Bush and the American people never said the threat was "imminent." By the time a madman like Hussein gets and atomic bomb and the treat becomes imminent, it is too late.

The threat in Kosovo was not "imminent." In 1941 the threat from Germany was not "imminent." I guess this is what Kerry means by being "sensitive." "Sensitive war" means speaking harshly and kerrying no stick.
