Pete Coors on War & Peace
2004 former Republican Senate Challenger (CO)
COORS: We have an enemy who is a horrific enemy. These are barbaric people who want to destroy our civilization. Every vote, you go with the best intelligence you have. I don’t think it’s appropriate today to second-guess what decision would be made today based on the information we have. I suspect that given what we know today, there would be a much different outcome than we had a couple of years ago.
Addressing the war in Iraq, Coors said, “Our young men and women didn’t go over there to pick a fight,” but the war was a decision of Congress and the President, which American troops are bound to uphold. “We need to support them when they come back home,” he said.
A: Yes. Our nation and the world changed dramatically on September 11, 2001. We are now engaged in a war like none other. For the safety of all Americans we must check the spread of terrorism wherever it exists.
