William Safire on Kerry:

WASHINGTON As the Democratic Whoopee Brigade hailed Senator John Kerry’s edge in debating technique, nobody noticed his foreign policy saw a change. On both military tactics and grand strategy, the newest neoconservative announced doctrines more hawkish than President George W. Bush.

....

‘What I want to do is change the dynamics on the ground,’’ Kerry volunteered. ‘‘And you have to do that by beginning to not back off of Falluja and other places and send the wrong message to terrorists. You’ve got to show you’re serious.’’ Right on, John! Although he added his standard softener of ‘‘sharing the stakes’’ with ‘‘the rest of the world,’’ he issued his radically revised military policy: Wipe out resistance in terrorist strongholds like Falluja, which requires America to inflict and accept higher casualties.

........

in embracing his right to pre-empt — always derided in horror by the two-minutes-to-midnight crowd as impermissible ‘‘preventive war’’ — Kerry felt the need to interject: ‘‘That was a great doctrine throughout the Cold War. And it was one of the things we argued about with respect to arms control.’’

Hold on. Nuclear pre-emption was never America’s ‘‘great doctrine’’ during confrontation with the Soviets. Washington’s strategic doctrine, which some of us remember, was at first ‘‘massive retaliation,’’ later ‘‘mutual assured destruction.’’ Maybe arms control negotiators listed pre-emption or preventive war as a dangerous notion of extremists, but only kooks portrayed by the likes of Peter Sellers called for a nuclear final solution to the Communist problem.
