Let's Redeploy - No, Let's Not

Here's a clear and simple foreign policy: Whatever Bush suggests, just assert the opposite.

"As Senator John McCain has said: 'I'm particularly concerned about moving troops out of South Korea when North Korea has probably never been more dangerous than any time since the end of the Korean War.' This is clearly the wrong signal to send at the wrong time."

"I will have significant, enormous reduction in the level of troops [in Iraq]. We will probably have a continued presence of some kind, and certainly in the region. If the diplomacy that I believe can be put in place can work, I think we can significantly change the deployment of troops, not just there but elsewhere in the world - in the Korean Peninsula perhaps, in Europe perhaps."

- John Kerry, on the TV show This Week, August 1, 2004. (Source: Glen Johnson, "Kerry, Edwards Defend Their Agenda, Boston Globe, August 2, 2004.)
