Senator Kerry hopes that he can spin the rhetoric on the conflict in Iraq...and is betting that you won't catch him doing it.

"The president was flown to an aircraft carrier to announce that hostilities in Iraq had ended," Kerry, a highly decorated Vietnam combat veteran, said at a Capitol Hill news conference.

"Now, clearly, it's time for the president to step forward and tell the truth that the war is continuing and so are the casualties."

No, senator. The President did not announce "hostilities had ended". In fact, what he said was: "(M)y fellow Americans: Major combat operations in Iraq have ended."

So to this nonsense senator, that the President should step forward to "tell the truth that the war is continuing and so are the casualties", do you senator take the American public to be complete idiots?

We all know the war is least those of us who have any sense of global awareness. In fact, in that same speech from the aircraft carrier the President said "We have difficult work to do in Iraq. We're bringing order to parts of that country that remain dangerous. "

Sounds a lot like "it isn't over yet" to me. What about you senator, now that you've been reminded of the facts outside of your little charade to gain political points on the backs of US servicemen and women?

And those of us with loved ones in Baghdad can tell you the body count on any given day, senator. As the president said just yesterday, senator: "There's no question we have a security issue in Iraq, and we've just got to deal with it person to person. We're going to have to remain tough.''

All in all senator, your efforts to spin and shave this into political points for your presidential campaign disgust me.

You are a veteran. You should do better by your brothers in arms.

What's worse is that you believe you can get away with this revisionism because you hold with such little regard the intellect of the average voter.

Go away and come back when you have a real message.
