news from war candidate Kerry

Kerry Vows Zealous U.S. Terror Hunt, Recalls Vietnam
Democratic presidential nominee and Vietnam War veteran John Kerry (news - web sites) tried to burnish his national security credentials on Saturday by vowing to hunt down terrorists with the same energy he used to pursue the Viet Cong.

"If that's the debate he wants to have, I'm prepared to have that debate because I can wage a better war on terror than George Bush (news - web sites) has."

"With the same energy ... I put into going after the Viet Cong and trying to win for our country, I pledge to you I will hunt down and capture or kill the terrorists before they harm us," Kerry said. "And we will wage a war on terror that makes America proud and brings the world to our side."

Kerry said he will create two new active-duty divisions to send to Iraq, and that he intends to pull out most of the National Guard forces. Those forces, he said, would be deployed domestically to fight "the war on terror" at home.
