Well, I think I heard it best...
Kerry has been in Washington so long, he has had time to form two opinions on ever subject.
"I think it symbolizes how two-faced he is, talking about his war reputation, which
is questionable on the one hand, and then coming out against our veterans who were fighting over there on the other."
"Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry has denied ever accusing American troops of committing war crimes in Vietnam. But his remarks during
an interview on CNN Thursday are at odds with the excerpts of a book Kerry authored in 1971, a copy of which CNSNews.com obtained this
Now this is a conspiracy site. Imagine your father never came home from Vietnam. As chairman of a Senate committee looking into allegations of MIAs in
Vietnam, Kerry defended the Vietnamese. He even went so far as to refer to the families of the POWs and MIAs as "professional malcontents, conspiracy
mongers, con artists, and dime-store Rambos."
Now how would someone that thinks this way, think of all of us here at ATS?
(Those who scream that ATS has spooks and disinfo agents take note!)
Scratched for three Purple Hearts? Any scars? Kerry demanded his tour of duty be cut short by 2/3rds? Regulations require that to be awarded the
Purple Heart, the wounded must be treated for an injury, caused by enemy action by a medical officer. Kerry never saw a medical officer because the
wounds were so minor.
Certainly wasn't caused by "enemy action" was it?
He also asked the draft board for a one year deferment, so he could visit Paris to sit out the war. The draft board refused, so he joined the Navy to
hopefully see little or no action.
Winning a Silver Star for chasing and killing a vietnamese who was already wounded (or already killed) by another swift boat crewman? Most
interesting... People have been tried and convicted for war crimes doing the same thing.
Admiral Zumwalt said of Kerry, "I don't know if I should give Lt. Kerry a medal or a court martial for all the civilians he's killed. I want to put
a straight jacket on Lt. Kerry."
Kerry used "murder" and "atrocity" to describe other soldiers actions in Vietnam were made in "anger" and really not accurate. So today he
admits that he lied back then in "anger"? Can we expect him to lie to us in office out of "anger"?
My fiancee is in the Naval Reserve. Did Kerry fulfill his Navy Reserve obligations or devote all his time to anti-American demonstrations? I wonder if
by encouraging the enemy, he has an idea of how many soldiers and sailors lost their lives?
Kerry wrote a book entitled "The New Soldier" showing mocking pictures of the Iwo Jima memorial. 7,000 Marines died at Iwo Jima, including three
from the famous photo. What does that say to those dead heros?
He states that he voted for the war, but now states that he was only voting for the "process" of the UN putting pressure on Iraq. I would love to
see the word "process." Ninty-nine US Senators can't find the word "process" in the bill that they voted on.
And finally, how can service men and women respect a Commander who would called them all war criminals, demonstrate against them and refuse to believe
the idea that some could have been left behind.
Now...say not all of this is true? But what if some is? This is a conspiracy site. Do you now take an unknown problem over a known one? Or do you just
Deny that you Deny Ignorance.
