I found this website very interesting . Especially now that Kerry is running for the Presidential and he is allways speaking about his vietnam past.

What a " hero " we have there.


" Sen. Kerry, the "noble statesman" and "highly decorated Vietnam vet" of today, is a far cry from Kerry, the radical, hippie-like leader of Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) in the early 1970s.

Soon after Kerry, as a Navy Lieutenant (junior grade) commanding a Swift boat in Vietnam, was awarded the Silver Star, he used an obscure Navy regulation to leave Vietnam and his crew before completing his tour of duty.

After returning home, he quit the Navy early and changed the color of his politics to become a leader of VVAW. Kerry wasted no time organizing opposition in the United States against the efforts of his former buddies still ducking communist bullets back in Vietnam.

You do not have to be a communist sympathiser to know that Vietnam was a huge mistake and waste of life and money.

Perchance, did he realize this and refuse to be a part of an unjust war?

Or should he keep fighting for what he does not believe in.

Glad to know that McCarthyism is still alive and kicking today though.

How else did he get those medals he's so proud of talking about?

You know my father was in vietnam and upon returning home became very critical of it and protested it as well. He also stayed in the military until he retired.

He said it did not make him any less American to oppose Vietnam he felt he had more right to speak against it and to try and bring his buddies home because he had lived through it. I do not know exactly what he did there but it was bad and has affected him his whole life.

He says there are thousands of vets that would have opposed the war like Kerry if they had the money and time Kerry did, most had to return, get jobs low paying jobs and start life. He told me recently when we talked about this very subject that he always believed he was in the Marines to protect people like Kerry's right to oppose war openly...

Kerry is a Vietnam vet with THREE purple hearts and a silver star. Its outright sickening that anybody can bash the man for his stance on that war, because he was right in the frickin thick of it with the scars to prove it. He put his life on the line and he had the courage to stand up against what he found out was very, very wrong. All of his knowledge from the war came from experience!

I agree with everyone else in thinking that it is absurd to say that John Kerry is a horrible person because he opposed the most opposed war in American history. Not only did he oppose it, but he had the most justifiable "right" to oppose it as he was actually there. There are points with which to criticize Kerry, but this is not it.
