    Not such an explosive issue 

    Why in the world has the Kerry campaign settled on the "missing" explosives in Iraq as its last-minute-push issue? Tommy Franks is amazed, too. The United States has managed to destroy about 400,000 tons of explosives since it's been in Iraq, while it was deposing Saddam, rebuilding the infrastructure, keeping insurgents at bay. Now, 380 tons, one-tenth of one percent -- MAY be missing, in the chaos of war. It may have gone missing before or after our arrival. We might even have destroyed it. Nobody knows. Even Bush says so. But this is proof that Bush is incomeptent?

    All it really shows is how incompetent Clueless Kerry is about articulating anything coherent about Iraq. There WERE weapons of mass destruction there, and he's arguing they may be in the hands of people who want to do us harm. Guess it wasn't the wrong war in the the wrong place at the wrong time, after all.
