The New York Times conducted a sit down interview with John "Give Peace A Chance" Kerry today. Amongst the nuggets are these forceful comments:
He said that if he were president, he would be pressing Haitian rebels to back off their goal of toppling Mr. Aristide, perhaps by threatening the deployment of an international peacekeeping force.
"I think you've got to be real and threatening," he said. His message to the rebels, he said, would be: "You're not going to take over, you're not kicking him out, this democracy is going to be sustained, we're willing to put in a new government, new prime minister, we're willing to work with you, but you're not going to succeed in your goal of exiling" Mr. Aristide. "And unless that's clear, you can't necessarily stop it in its tracks."
So, does that mean he now supports the President's strong actions in Iraq? Well, we don't and apparantely neither does the more liberal senator from Taxachussets because apparently:
Mr. Kerry acknowledged that he did not fully know the diplomatic strategy of the Bush administration to deal with Haiti's crisis.
Isn't that something he should figure out before leveling criticism?
