    That is pure political spin.

    Kerry said he wanted to get "back to the place...where terrorists are not the focus of our lives, but they're a nuisance."

    The Bush campaign has taken this and said that Kerry called Terrorists a nuisance.

    The thing is IT IS IMPOSIBLE TO REMOVE HATE FROM THE MINDS OF EVERY PERSON THEREFORE IMPOSIBLE TO REMOVE ALL TERRORIST. this is a war that can not be won in a conventional sense not that any war is realy won.

    This is a battle that will never end, but i think what kerry meant is that we can reduce the terrorist threat to a point where we need not fear being tourist and where the people of our allies need not feel threatened for supporting us.

    When is it a "nuisance" to murder people?

    Not only did Kerry pick a stupid point to try to make (the goal is to eliminate all terrorism, not reduce it to a tolerable level) but he picked the wrong word.

    Of course, we can't eliminate it but by using the word "nuisance", Kerry really stepped in it.

    the choice of one word is really petty and kinda pathetic to base a political argument on expecialy if its being repeated by people who have a biased silly opinion and probably incorect interpretation of the word.

    Spin spin spin. Before 9/11, that's about the effect that terrorism had on people's lives-- it was almost a non-issue in this country, a nuisance at best. Do you LIKE constantly jumping when the government says jump, ducking and rolling where there's a red-alert, and constantly fearing terrorism? John Kerry wants to succeed against terror to the point where you don't have to spend so much time worrying about it.

    WRONG!!

    Kerry has been sited as saying he wants to return to the tactics of Bill Clinton, where terrorism was treated like a criminal act. He has stated that he wishes to return to the time where it was treated as a law enforcement issue and not a matter of war. In that article over the weekend in the NYT, he had an unguarded moment wher ehe slipped and said that he feels going to war over terrorism was the wrong idea. He truly feels this war was wrong all around. Not the timing, not the cleanup, the whole thing. If Kerry were president on 9/11, we would have never gone to war in Afghanistan or Iraq. We wouldnt be fighting Terror in over 100 countries worldwide, on the high seas or be leading the world in a "Proactive" effort to solve the problem.

    You liberals can vote for Kerry all you like because of your hatred for Bush. Just understand that not only will your taxes be raised, but the threat of this country being attacked again will rise as well.

    Yeah that's right, he did say that.

    But didn't Kerry say he wants to increase the military size by 40,000 servicemembers? Which I disagree with in the first place based upon the reason given during the last debate. If he isn't going to treat terrorist acts as a matter of war, why the increase?

    John Kerry: On the issues, he's everywhere you want him to be
