Terrorism: Kerry's stress on alliances

By Sridhar Krishnaswami

WASHINGTON, MAY 28. Stressing that he would "never let ideology trump truth" and accusing the Bush administration of undermining "the legacy of generations of American leadership," the soon-to-be Democratic candidate, Senator John Kerry, laid out the essentials of his administration's national security policy that among other things would seek to build alliances.

Mr. Kerry said in Seattle that the accent of his administration would also be on a tough approach to fighting terrorism, but that America was better off going about this with others as well. "...we must take the fight to the enemy on every continent — and enlist other countries in that cause. "America must always be the world's paramount military power. But we can magnify our power through alliances," he said. "We simply cannot go it alone — or rely on a coalition of the few."
