NONE of the victories we have won in the last three years would have happened under Kerry's watch - *had he been elected).
No Sunni uprising.
No retaking of Basra and Sadr City.
Just WITHDRAWAL. And the victory THAT would have signaled for our enemies.
Our troops are valiant and courageous and brave and honorable and doing really dangerous work that needs to be done.
But NONE of their brave work would've been possible without you and I winning here on the political fields of battle FIRST.
The same is still true: if we are to defeat the enemy abroad, we MUST first defeat the Democrats in the presidential election.
Nobody should feel that they can sit this one out, UNLESS they don't care if we win or not.
If you think we must win the war against islamofascism and global jihad, then you MUST vote for McCain.
There is no other choice.
We have to win the White House with the candidate we have, not the candidate we WISH we had.
