REMEMBERING WHEN

October 11 is the anniversary of a day that should be recognized for it's historical significance to Americans. No, not the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus... but the day that 2 years ago John-John Kedwards declared for all time that it really was the RIGHT WAR, RIGHT TIME and RIGHT PLACE.
=====================================================
A piece on www.georgewbush.com notes this special anniversary...

Today is the two year anniversary of the Congressional vote to use force to disarm Saddam Hussein. John Kerry and John Edwards both voted yes and warned of the threat that Saddam Hussein presented. They were two of only four Senators who voted for the war and then voted against funding the troops. In the debate this past Friday, John Kerry again said Saddam Hussein "was a threat," before he said Saddam Hussein "wasn't a threat."

In his floor statement on the vote, Kerry called those who would leave Saddam "alone naïve to the point of grave danger":
"It would be naive to the point of grave danger not to believe that, left to his own devices, Saddam Hussein will provoke, misjudge, or stumble into a future, more dangerous confrontation with the civilized world."
In his floor statement, Edwards said, "We know that he has chemical and biological weapons":
"Saddam Hussein's regime represents a grave threat to America and our allies, including our vital ally, Israel. For more than two decades, Saddam Hussein has sought weapons of mass destruction through every available means. We know that he has chemical and biological weapons. He has already used them against his neighbors and his own people, and is trying to build more. We know that he is doing everything he can to build nuclear weapons, and we know that each day he gets closer to achieving that goal."
