John Kerry Slanders US Troops

John Kerry said on Nation TV: (Full Text PDF)
And there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women, breaking sort of the customs of the--of--the historical customs, religious customs. Whether you like it or not...
Commentary: John Kerry is a US Senator and a ex-navy soldier. From the former he should know that his words are closely followed and carry heavy responsibilities. From the latter he should have learned to show some loyalty and respect.

Regardless if this was a rhetorical slip of the tongue, John Kerry has slandered the whole cloth of the US military. He should immediately retract his remarks and apologize to the brave and professional US military.

Thank God he is not President.

Here's the darkest irony, for me. Instead of condemning the acts described in and of themselves, he said that "Iraqis should be doing that." Namely, by stitching together the part of that which you left out, you get: Iraqis should be (break) going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women, breaking sort of the customs of the--of--the historical customs, religious customs.

Edward: Yeah, several kinds of wrong in one run on sentence. It gets kind of hard to decide which Kerry gaff to address.

If I remember correctly he was arguing for more troops in Iraq a few month's ago. I've personally moved beyond taking his policy ideas seriously and arguing against them directly; he is a has-been and not worth the breath. However, I feel we must stand up and denounce the slander of US troops (and as you point out, Iraqi troops by implication)
