[quote]Hillary: Kosovo Shows Dems Better at Prosecuting Wars
New York Sen. Hillary Clinton said Sunday that Democrats have historically been more successful waging American wars than Republicans, boasting that during the Kosovo war launched by her husband in 1999, “we didn’t lose a single American military person.”
“I resent it when Republicans say that they’re better on national defense,” the top Democrat told CNN “Late Edition” host Wolf Blitzer. “It was Democratic presidents who prosecuted the wars that were successful in this past century.”
“I am a strong proponent of a national defense that is smart,” Clinton insisted, warming to her role as head of the Democratic Party’s GOP Convention “Truth Squad.”
“What we need to be focused on is which president is more likely to make decisions that will achieve our objective with putting the least amount of lives at risk,” she told CNN, before adding, “You know, we were successful in Kosovo - and we didn’t lose a single American military person.”
Clinton offered the boast after Blitzer asked whether the more than 900 U.S. troops killed so far in Iraq had “died in vain.”[/quote]
There are strong indications that the Bush admin is gearing up for an attack on Iran by the end of April. However, if that doesn’t occur - don’t give up - we can always rely on the Democrats to take us to war!
