Kerry on with the mayhem

As usual, the WSWS has a great critique of last night's debate between the Skull & Bones warmongers:
Asked whether US soldiers were currently "dying in Iraq for a mistake," Kerry replied: "No, and they don't have to, providing we have the leadership that I'm offering. I believe that we have to win this. The president and I have always agreed on that."
So the war in Iraq is only a mistake if we don't "win," whatever that means. I'm sure that LBJ and Nixon would have agreed.
In one of his more chilling remarks, the Democratic candidate denounced the Bush administration for failing to prosecute the war with sufficient ruthlessness. "What I want to do is change the dynamics on the ground," he said. "And you have to do that by beginning to not back off from the Fallujahs and other places, and send the wrong message to the terrorists."
In other words, just like Bush, Kerry says that Iraqis who recognize the illegitimate puppet regime of Allawi as an illegitimate puppet regime are "terrorists." And the bloodshed is going to increase drastically after the election, no matter who wins.
