I believe Kerry wants to spend whatever it takes to fix the situation. But he wants to do so with the understanding that we have allies on board who will match the investment with their own blood and money...

How does he go about getting these allies? Sharing the contracts and opening up the bidding process.

You don't really believe that $18 billion in contracts is going to entice allies to send 140K more troops into the war on terror (as Kerry defined it yesterday), do you? Or are you saying that the allies are going to send us tens of billions of dollars so that they can bid on $18 billion in contracts? Also, remember, that Kerry's plan is to turn that reconstruction money over to the UN to let them administer (after they proved themselve so competent with handling money in Iraq), further weakening the argument that you claim he's making.

Listening to Kerry speak today it seems he wants to get the allies into Iraq to replace the US troops and let them win the war. Or lose the war. He doesn't seem to care either way.
