Kerry: Bring 20,000 Troops Home from Iraq

The irrelevent one speaks. Odd position considering it wasn't long ago he was screaming for more troops. Obviously been hanging out at the Waffle House again.

Sen. John Kerry says President Bush should bring home 20,000 troops from Iraq over the Christmas holidays if the December parliamentary elections there are successful.

Defeated by Bush last year and a potential candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008, Kerry called for a "reasonable time frame" for pulling back troops rather than a full-scale withdrawal advocated by some Democrats. He said it could be completed in 12 to 15 months.

"It will be hard for this administration, but it is essential to acknowledge that the insurgency will not be defeated unless our troop levels are drawn down, starting immediately after successful elections in December," Kerry said in a speech prepared for delivery Wednesday at Georgetown University. Excerpts of the speech were obtained by the Associated Press.

Now that's what I call some seriously contorted reasoning.

Just goes to show that my readers are sometimes more on the ball than me. Thanx to Chad for the heads up.
