This Guy Wants to Be Commander-in-Chief?

The New York Times reports:
Kerry Criticizes President's Troop Plan

Published: August 19, 2004

CINCINNATI, Aug. 18 - With repeated references to his own service in Vietnam, Senator John Kerry told fellow members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars here on Wednesday that President Bush's plan to move 70,000 troops out of Europe and Asia was vague and ill-advised in view of the North Korean nuclear threat....
Ground forces aren't a counter to a nuclear threat. For that we have intercontinental ballistic missiles, sea-launched ballistic missiles, and long-range bombers with cruise missiles -- none of them based in Korea. The only thing Kerry learned in Vietnam was the location of the Cambodian border. Nope, not even that.
