John Kerry, Then and Now 
"Those who believe we are not safer with Saddam Hussein's capture don't have the judgement to be president or the credibility to be elected president."

--John Kerry, Capital Gang, December 2003

"Saddam Hussein took us to war once before. In that war, young Americans were killed. He went to war in order to take over the oil fields. It wasn't just an invasion of Kuwait. This man was heading to the oil fields of Saudi Arabia. [Kerry voted against the war to liberate Kuwait. --Jason] And that would would have had a profound effect on the security of the United States.
This is a man who has used weapons of mass destruction, unlike other people on this earth today, not only against other people but against his own people. This is a man who tried to assassinate a former president. A man who lobbed 36 missiles into Israel in order to destabilize the Middle East. This is man who is so capable of miscalculation that he even brought this war upon himself. This is a man who if he was left uncaptured, would have continued to be able to organize the Baathists, he would have continued to terrorize the people just in their minds, because of 30 years of terror in Iraq."

--January 11th Interview on Meet the Press.

"We have traded a dictator for a chaos that has made us less safe."

--September 20th 2004

“George, I said at the time I would have preferred if we had given diplomacy a greater opportunity, but I think it was the right decision to disarm Saddam Hussein, and when the President made the decision, I supported him, and I support the fact that we did disarm him.”

--Democratic Presidential Debate, Columbia, South Carolina.

"It was the wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time."

--John Kerry (Can't find the date. It's an audio clip)

"It was right to hold Saddam Hussein accountable. Absolutely correct. And anybody who doesn’t believe it wasn’t correct ought to go dig around in those graves or even make a judgment about what would happen if you left Saddam Hussein alone to do this."

--Meet the Press, 31 August 2003.

Hey, excellent website. A great Iraq resource is Deaths in Iraq. It breaks all of the casualties down by age, race, branch of the military, country, etc.
