LET Confusing 'negativity' with truth
An article in the Los Angeles Times stated "Kerry is considered by much of the international community as the antidote to a bullying Bush in November."
Roman newspapers last month quoted Britain's ambassador to Italy, Ivor Roberts, describing Bush as "the best recruiting sergeant" for the al-Qaida terrorist network. Listening to the first debate on the radio it sounded to me that Kerry was making the point that the "King" had no clothes.
In the article Galina Babayyan, a Moscow mathematics professor, commented: "It would be more appropriate to compare the U.S. not with a global policeman, but with an ill-natured teenager sent back to the first grade. He is bigger and stronger than anybody else. He bullies everyone around him. But he is slow on the uptake."
I did not serve in the U.S. Navy as did columnist Richard Nicely, I served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam. In conclusion, I don't think it's Kerry's "negativity" that bothers Mr. Nicely, I think it's the truth.
