Put the UN in Charge? I Think Not...

The United Nations, not the United States, should be the primary civilian partner in working with Iraqi leaders to hold elections, restore government services, rebuild the economy, and re-create a sense of hope and optimism among the Iraqi people. The primary responsibility for security must remain with the U.S. military, preferably helped by NATO until we have an Iraqi security force fully prepared to take responsibility.

- John Kerry

Just like they brought hope and optimism to the Sudan?

"Sen. Kerry (D-Mass.) is the presumptive Democratic nominee for president."

Wait a minute, didn't Kerry win almost all the primaries? Isn't he, in fact, the nominee?

Something smells fishy here!

T'aint over until it's over... if I were them, I'd be keeping my options open.
