Hey Kerry, save it...

Senator (yeah, still a senator, you lost the election sir) seems to think it is his duy to tell the President what to say when he addresses the nation tonight. Thankfully he didn't take the opportunity to again denegrate America's troops by claiming (untruthfully) that he witnessed atrocities. Nice to see the senator has grown up a bit.

Interestingly the Senator takes this opportunity to do something he never did during his presidential campaign, namely propose a different strategy for the war in Iraq.

The administration must immediately draw up a detailed plan with clear milestones and deadlines for the transfer of military and police responsibilities to Iraqis after the December elections. The plan should be shared with Congress. The guideposts should take into account political and security needs and objectives and be linked to specific tasks and accomplishments. If Iraqis adopt a constitution and hold elections as planned, support for the insurgency should fall and Iraqi security forces should be able to take on more responsibility. It will also set the stage for American forces to begin to come home.

Yes, the administration must draw up a plan with clear milestones and dealines so that the terrorists can plan better and only strike at important times in important places.

It is also telling that Kerry insists on calling the terrorists Jihadists (a euphemism for religious freedom fighter). Why doesn't he call them the murderers and thugs that they are, he didn't have a problem calling the men and women in Viet Nam war criminals, why does he sugar coat these disgusting human beings. I guess blowing up weddings and beheading journalists isn't quite as low on Kerry's list as Viet Nam.

I also like how part of his plan requires "United Nations Security Council approval." Yeah, keep touting the decrease of American sovereignty, US citizens love that...jackass.
