No one, right, left, or center, is stupid enough to suggest that Iraq was never at least a potential threat to some degree. That's what your Kerry quote reiterates.
Hence, Iraq should have been forced to comply with its own international agreements regarding weapons inspections, as I've already stated numerous times. This does NOT automatically imply the heavy-handed solution of invasion and extended occupation, but apparently you think it does. This is where we disagree. So yes. You have your side of it and I have mine. I'll see you in November.
Btw, I would object to a witch-hunt against Bush, under similar circumstances as the one against Clinton. I honestly do not care if my President tells a lie under oath about his sex life. Honestly, I just don't. So sue me.
