Response to Bush has his detractors, eh?
Sometimes Kerry supports the war other times he doesn't support the war, I guess it depends on what crowd he is talking to on that particular day. While Kerry does flip-flop a lot he is definitely not an anti-war candidate. He's only the "I'm not George W. Bush" candidate.
Kerry voted for the war. Kerry said knowing what he knows now he would still vote for the war.
I can't defend Kerry's stance on Iraq because I don't really know what it is. He just gurantees us that he will do a better job than Bush. My guess is that Kerry wants to get more international involvement in the region. He has criticized Bush for alienating many US allies in the international community. I doubt he will be able to achieve this though.
The only difference would be the desire to start another war in the region. I believe that many neo-cons (Cheney) are itching for another conflict, particularly with Iran. I believe Kerry would be less aggressive in this area.
"Nonetheless, it seems, a majority of American Jews continue to lean toward Kerry, as a recent poll by the National Jewish Democratic Council is said to have found. According to the survey, an astonishing 75 percent of US Jews back the Massachusetts Senator, while just 22 percent support Bush. "
Kerry can't be that much of an "appeaser" then.
Of course I realize that many Jewish voters are scared of by the "Amen corner" in the Republican Party. I don't blame them.
