Kerry Meets with Veterans

Kerry meets with unidentified veterans.

"You'd be amazed at the number of foreign leaders active duty personnel who are maybe meeting me in restaurants coming up at events around the country, greeting me in ropelines or coming to rallies and telling me man, you've gotta beat this guy how important it is for us to stand up and fight for those who are not able to speak out for themselves right now for obvious reasons," Kerry said.

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee added: "But the numbers of active duty people quietly coming and saying we need a change, we need to build a modern military, we need to do the things necessary to protect our troops, we need to have all our allies on the ground in Iraq ... that's what this race is about."

Tongue in cheek, sure, but you'd think the guy would at least change the script a little.

Ally - One in helpful association with another.

Mr. Kerry, all of our allies ARE on the ground in Iraq. When you mean France, Germany and Russia (as opposed to our 33 non-allies in Iraq), you should use the word FORMER before the word Allies.

The coalition of the willing, apparent is not very willing. Only the UK has sent a substantial number of troops. Second to them was Spain, and they are pulling out. If Bush gets re-elected, he could solve the problem though. Just reinstate the draft.
