John Kerry would best serve the interest and values of what Peace Corps Volunteers stand for as well as the ideal of the organization. A vote for John Kerry is a vote for the better candidate and best leader out there to serve our country in this very serious time.

The war on terrorism in the long run is a war for the minds and emotions of people over a great part of the globe. The President may be right that we need to fight terrorism with superior force. But he is probably wrong when he believes that using a great deal of force to get a terrorist or terrorist cell based on poor intelligence will help us win the war. This is because if we act on false information, we are much more likely to cause collatoral damage involving the death and injury of innocent third parties.
Hence in the long run we may well have to depend on small groups of special forces, trained intelligence gathers and analyzers with great language abilities and of course more and more allies working to capture terrorists, cut off their supply of money and recruits.
In the past this type of effort has taken decades, and required more police force and less armed forces involvement.
As for playing politics with the words, one aim would be to act to make terrorism an issue which would just be a nuisance as opposed to the main objective of foreign policy and turning that into a statement about thinking that terrorism is just a nuisance issue I refer those who have not already read it to the novel, which I think is called 1984.

I hope for his/her sake that the guy/gal who thinks Kerry is turd--is too old for the draft!

Bush doesn't flip-flop (except when he is forced to); he's as consistent as Attila the Hun. His banalities, blandishments, and generalities don't offend the righteous right, but, conversely, make his loyal followers clasp him to their bosom.
