10 out of 10 Terrorists Agree, Kerry for President

The Washington Times has quotes from a hardline muslim cleric who supports the insurgents in Iraq. Not suprisingly, he hopes the casualties in Iraq will cause Kerry to win, thus leading to withrawal and defeat.

"If the U.S. Army suffered numerous humiliating losses, Kerry would emerge as the superman of the American people,"

"American elections and Iraq are linked tightly together," he told a Fallujah-based Iraqi reporter. "We've got to work to change the election, and we've done so. With our strikes, we've dragged Bush into the mud."

After seeing what happened in the Spanish elections, who knows what could happen.
Vladimir Putin has also made some comments, recognizing that the terrorist community would love for Bush to lose the election. He stated:

"International terrorists have set as their goal inflicting the maximum damage to Bush, to prevent his election to a second term."
"If they succeed in doing that, they will celebrate a victory over America and over the entire anti-terror coalition," Putin said.
"In that case, this would give an additional impulse to international terrorists and to their activities, and could lead to the spread of terrorism to other parts of the world."

In reality, terrorist are going to be happy no matter who wins. If Bush loses, they'll take it as a victory, recognizing that they have power to influence the most powerful nation in the world, animating their cause even more and giving them a sense of invincibility. If Bush wins, they will not concede defeat, but will try to rally the troops behind someone who has taken a hard stance. For it is always easier to be against a man of principle, then a man of nuance.
