So the War for Iraq Is Equivalent to the Bay of Pigs and John F. Kerry is Another John F. Kennedy?
From chilled to boiling hot. Kerry gives me that visceral reaction. This time he is comparing the War in Iraq to the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba in 1962. Believe me, the only comparison he can make is that they were both done for the purpose of freeing people from tyrannical dictators.

The battle to free Iraq is nothing like the hapless Bay of Pigs invasion was not one of America's shining moments. At the last moment the planned landing site was changed from a lightly fortified to a heavily fortified beach and the promised air back up was not delivered.

John Kerry must believe that Americans don't know the difference nor do the Iraqis. However the disillusioned and betrayed Cubans exiles of Miami do.

If Kerry wants to compare himself to the other JFK, that's all right with me. With his overblown hype, I never thought much of the other either.
