Why don't some politicians and government officials think PTSD is a real disability?
 
 
PTSD is called a disability for a reason.
Whether intentional or not...   For a government agency or government official to exacerbate and/or take advantage of the disability of honorable veterans is a disgrace and should be a crime.

Amnesty International: Insurgents are guilty

The Amnesty International report — "In Cold Blood: Abuses by Armed Groups" — said (terrorist) insurgents were guilty of direct attacks intended to cause the greatest possible loss of civilian life, indiscriminate attacks resulting in the deaths of civilians, targeting humanitarian organizations, abductions and killing captured and defenseless police and military personnel.

"There is no honor nor heroism in blowing up people going to pray or murdering a terrified hostage.  Those carrying out such acts are criminals, nothing less, whose actions undermine any claim they may have to be pursuing a legitimate cause," Amnesty said.

Investigate New Jersey's Office of Attorney Ethics Vice-Chairman Robert Correale and his Law Firm
 
Due to this major Conflict of Interest within New Jersey's Office of Attorney Ethics, the New Jersey Government should call for an investigation outside the Office of Attorney Ethics on their Vice-Chairman Robert Correale, Esq. and his Law Firm . 
    Since I'm a disabled, PTSD Veteran, I requested the Federal Department of Justice (DOJ) to please carry out this investigation due to this major Conflict of Interest in the State of New Jersey, but the DOJ refused.   The DOJ wrote that I had to have this resolved in New Jersey.   Since I felt that New Jersey didn't give me Equal Rights Of State Laws, I felt my civil rights were being violated under Statue II of the Disability Act.

LETTER OF APOLOGY

Author unknown - sentiment shared.

For good and ill, the Iraqi prisoner abuse mess will remain an issue.  On the one hand, right thinking Americans will abhor the stupidity of the actions while on the other hand, political glee will take control and fashion this minor event into some modern day My Lai massacre.   *

I heard some Arabs are asking for an apology.  I humbly offer mine here:

I am sorry that the last seven times we Americans took up arms and sacrificed the blood of our youth, it was in the defense of Muslims (Bosnia, Kosovo, Gulf War 1, Kuwait, etc.).

I am sorry that no such call for an apology upon the extremists came after 9/11.

I am sorry that all of the murderers on 9/11 were Arabs.

I am sorry that Arabs have to live in squalor under savage dictatorships.  I am sorry that their leaders squander their wealth.

I am sorry that their governments breed hate for the US in their religious schools.

I am sorry that Yassir Arafat was kicked out of every Arab country and hijacked the Palestinian "cause."

I am sorry that no other Arab country will take in or offer more than a token amount of financial help to those same Palestinians.

I am sorry that the USA has to step in and be the biggest financial supporter of poverty stricken Arabs while the insanely wealthy Arabs blame the USA.

I am sorry that our own left wing elite and our media can't understand any of this.

I am sorry the United Nations scammed the poor people of Iraq out of the "food for oil" money so they could get rich while the common folk suffered.

I am sorry that some Arab governments pay the families of homicide bombers upon their death.

I am sorry that those same bombers are seeking 72 virgins. I can't seem to find one here on Earth.

I am sorry that the homicide bombers think babies are a legitimate target.

I am sorry that our troops died to free more Arabs.

I am sorry they show so much restraint when their brothers in arms are killed. I am sorry that Muslim extremists have killed more Arabs than any other group.

I am sorry that foreign trained terrorists are trying to seize control of Iraq and return it to a terrorist state.

I am sorry we don't drop a few dozen "Daisy Cutters" on Fallujah.  (Note: a "Daisy Cutter" is a 10,000 lb bomb, used to clear helicopter landing zones)

I am sorry every time terrorists hide they find a convenient "Holy Site".

I am sorry they didn't apologize for driving a jet into the World Trade Center that collapsed and severely damaged Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church - one of our Holy Sites.

I am sorry they didn't apologize for flight 93 and 175, the USS Cole, the embassy bombings, etc.

I am sorry Michael Moore is American; he could feed a medium sized village in Africa.

I am sorry the French are french?

America will get past this latest absurdity. We will punish those responsible because that is what we do.  We hang out our dirty laundry for all the world to see. We move on. That's one of the reasons we are hated so much.  We don't hide this stuff like all those Arab countries that are now demanding an apology.

Deep down inside, when most Americans saw this reported in the news, we were like - so what?  We lost hundreds and made fun of a few prisoners.  Sure, it was wrong, sure, it dramatically hurts our cause, but until captured we were trying to kill these same prisoners. Now we're supposed to wring our hands because a few were humiliated?  Our compassion is tempered with the vivid memories of our own people killed, mutilated and burnt amongst a joyous crowd of celebrating Fallujans.

If you want an apology from this American, you're going to have a long wait.  You have a better chance of finding those 72 virgins.

On St Patrick's Day, I marched up Fifth Ave. in the NYC Parade with my old high school, Power Memorial Academy.       It's was a beautiful day.  (Last year it snowed!)
 
Power Memorial was a great school, which had some excellent sports teams.  Many of you basketball fans may have  heard about it.  Power's 1963 Varsity Basketball Team was voted the best high school team in America's history.  I never played on the basketball teams, because I stunk.  However, I was a great cheerleader.    I wasn't a geek, but I took the stats for the 1969 varsity team.  http://powermemorialacademy.com/

Below is another great opportunity to feel proud of our American Military as well as yourself.  The sergeant has a simple request...
 
My name is Sgt. Lamar Price.   I am currently with the 278th. Regimental Combat Team at Camp Caldwell Iraq.   I am writing to ask you for help with a project I am trying to start here.
     A few weeks ago the 278th. opened a school in the area near here.  I became aware that a lot of the children did not have shoes and were going to school barefoot in 50 degree weather.  I am asking people to mail one pair of children's shoes to my address in Iraq.  They can be any size boys or girls.  They do not have to be new just serviceable.  I will then collect them and give to our patrols and convoys to pass out.   My address is
Sgt. Lamar Price
RHHT278RCT PLT7
Camp Caldwell Iraq
APO AEO 09374
 
A number of caring Americans on my mailing lists have asked, if Sgt. Lamar Price's request is legitimate.  Based on the internet sources, where I found his above request, I would proudly say yes.   During the Vietnam War, CAP Marines did the same thing.   (Be part of the solution in Iraq.)

----- Original Message -----

  In the last week, I came across two stories involving the War on Terror.  One angered me beyond words; the other uplifted my belief in the honor and humanity of our troops.  You probably won't hear about either one in the mainstream media, but I figured they were worth sharing.   

The first story came out on Monday, via the New York Post.  Apparently, one of our troops based in South Korea, only ten miles from the North Korean border, received a package from school children.  Pfc. Rob Jacobs, whose home is in New Jersey, had received a bunch of letters from the William Alexander School (JHS 51) in Brooklyn, New York.  As any soldier will tell you, letters from home, even those from strangers, are a blessing to receive.  They break up the boredom of the lonely off-duty hours.  They make you feel just a little less isolated when you're thousands of miles from home.

Or at least, they should have that effect.  Sadly, however, this was not the case for some of the letters in this particular batch.  The teacher of this particular social studies class, one Alex Kunhardt, apparently instructed his class to write the letters, but didn't seem to give much direction as to how those letters should be tailored.  Out of 21 letters, nine of the students decided to go into an anti-war, anti-Iraq, anti-Bush diatribe.  I am guessing that they may have been coached.  They berated this lone soldier for his involvement in the destruction of mosques, the murder of civilians and the usual lib/dem/soc/commie diatribe we've come to expect from the MSM and the NEA.   

Perhaps someone should have informed Mr. Kunhardt that American soldiers are not destroying mosques, nor are they murdering civilians.  Further, he should buy a map.  The war his students were decrying is going on in Iraq.  Pfc. Jacobs is based in South Korea.  Despite the same last name, there is a significant geographic difference between the Middle East and the Far East.  Lastly, for middle school students, their spelling and grammar is atrocious.  It's even worse than mine!

Now, think about this for a minute.  You're a Private in the United States Army.  You're farther away from home than you've ever dreamed you'd be in your entire life.  You're less than a 20-minute drive from a country run by an incompetent whack-job despot with nukes, missiles, and not a whole hell of a lot to lose.  If Kim Jong (mentally) Il decides to make a first strike, chances are you'll either be overrun by about a hundred thousand starving, well armed, and seriously honked off North Korean soldiers, or you'll end up as a shadow on the concrete wall behind you.  Throw homespun hate mail into the mix, and chances are this is not going to do much for your morale.
   
Pfc. Jacobs, indeed all of our US military, deserve a major apology from this sorry excuse for an educator and those seriously deluded students who decided to attack a man whose job is to keep them safe.  Jacobs deserves better, as does the rest of our military. 

However, as angry as this situation makes me (and, I hope, you as well) another story gave me hope.  It was in the form of a letter, but not from students to a soldier.  It was, instead, a soldier's letter about students.  Iraqi students. 

A fair number of the posters on the ChronWatch Forum are fans of a certain talk radio personality.  No, this time it's not El Rushbo.  In Atlanta, there's a talk show host by the name of Neal Boortz.  I've never heard his show, but from what many of our posters say, Mr. Boortz is the bee's knees.  I've read his website (http://boortz.com) and it's very informative, funny, witty and infuriating in its accuracy of displaying the worst of lib/dem/soc/commie ''culture'' (and I use that term culture such a growth or colony of bacteria).  I sincerely wish that his show were broadcast where I live.  Well, maybe someday.

Anyway, Mr. Boortz does a daily update on his website called ''Nealz Newz'' - ah, another bad speller like me - and he had a letter that he included from a soldier in Iraq: 

Dear Mr. Boortz,

My name is Sgt. Lamar Price I am currently with the 278th. Regemental Combat Team at Camp Caldwell Iraq. I am writting to ask you for help with a project I am trying to start here. A few weeks ago the 278th. opened a school in the area near here. I became aware that a lot of the children did not have shoes and were going to school barefoot in 50 degree weather. I am asking people to mail one pair of children's shoes to my address in Iraq.  They can be any size boys or girls.  They do not have to be new just servicable.  I will then collect them and give to our patrols and convoys to pass out.  My address is
Sgt. Lamar Price
RHHT278RCT PLT7
Camp Caldwell Iraq
APO AEO 09374

As you know the United States does more good for the people of Iraq than ever gets reported in the media.  Mr. Boortz, any advice or help you can give to get the word out will be deeply appreciated. 

Thank you

Sgt. Lamar Price 

For those of you about to jump on Sgt. Price's spelling, I'd remind you that 1) he's in a war zone, 2) not all e-Mail systems include spell-checking software, and 3) he doesn't have a teacher from Brooklyn looking over his shoulder telling him how things should be spelled.  Also, please note that when the sergeant talks about 50-degree weather, he's not talking Fahrenheit.  He's referring to the Celsius scale.  I know from personal experience that you don't want to be walking barefoot on anything when it's 122 degrees Fahrenheit outside.

Here's a soldier smack-dab in the middle of a war zone.  He's just one of over 140,000 men and women dedicated to protecting America and ensuring the freedom of 25 million people.  Is he asking for sympathy?  Is he asking for support?  Is he asking for armor for his Humm-V?  Is he asking for Fig Newtons?  No.  He's asking for shoes.  Shoes for Iraqi school children.  Boys or girls, new or used, fancy or plain, doesn't matter.  He puts his life on the line every single day, like every one of his compatriots over there, and his thoughts aren't for himself.  They're for the kids he helped free, to make sure they don't burn their feet when they go to the schools that US soldiers have either rebuilt, or started from scratch. 


I'm planning to write to both Mr. Kunhardt and Sgt. Price this week.  For Mr. Kunhardt, I'll be filing a complaint to his principal and his district supervisor, asking how they could allow an educator to use a social studies project to spit vitriol at a brave American soldier.  For Sgt. Price, I'll be heading over to Wal-Mart to pick up a couple of pairs of kids shoes, and a great big Thank You card. 

Two men who represent the worst America has to offer, and the best. 
~~~~~oo0oo~~~~~

If you'd like to complain to the school and the district about Mr. Kunhardt's heartless class project, here are the addresses -

December 20, 2004
By ANDREW BORENE

Minneapolis - IF the Pentagon hopes to start bringing American troops home from Iraq while also increasing security there, it will have to find a way to do more with less. One approach could be expanding the Marine Corps combined-action program, an initiative that was successful in Vietnam and has shown early promise in Iraq.

The concept behind the program is that if American and foreign troops operate together, each will gain knowledge from the other as to the best way to counter an insurgency. In Vietnam, platoons were created that combined marines and Vietnamese militia members. The Americans were handpicked, chosen because they had shown particular respect for the local culture. They were expected to live in the villages they were assigned to defend, striving to "work themselves out of a job" by training their Vietnamese counterparts in police work and security operations.

The most striking success of the program was a rapid increase in actionable intelligence. Living in Vietnamese hamlets for months, the marines got a chance to get to know the locals, who in general had kept a careful neutrality in the war. This helped to humanize the American presence and reduced the passive support many civilians had been giving to Vietcong guerrillas. For many, their respect for (or fear of) the communist guerrillas waned, and they broke their silence about intelligence leads.

In the long run, it was one of the few efforts that managed to win some "hearts and minds" in Vietnam. Unfortunately, the top brass lost interest in the program in the early 1970's and, well, the rest is history.

Last year, under the leadership of Gen. James Mattis, members of the First Marine Division in western Iraq began adapting the program to aid poorly trained Iraqi National Guard and police forces. Although it is too soon to declare success, reports from the military and the news media suggest that Iraqis in the combined-action program perform better in combat, have higher morale and are considerably more reliable than their regular Iraqi military counterparts.

Expanding the program would be best accomplished by teaming coalition troops with Iraqi security troops, or even paramilitary groups as in Vietnam, and placing them in cities along the main supply routes. This would significantly bolster the coalition's ability to gauge popular sentiment and gather intelligence leads on the pursuit of enemy leaders. It would also reduce the high profile of the coalition forces.

While the situations in Vietnam and Iraq are not identical, when it comes to battling insurgents it is always vital to erase their advantages in popular support and local knowledge. A few good marines learned how to do that during Vietnam; perhaps trying it again in Iraq can bring about a different ending.

It's time that American Democrat Leaders got behind a solution and pushed it forward, instead of their DOOM and GLOOM forecasts.  John Kerry is still the Democrats top forecaster.  Does any Democrats think the Iraq Election was a major step forward...   Or are all Democrat politicians afraid of John Kerry, Ted Kennedy and their soon to be elected leader, Howard Dean?

Rice: Iraqi Voting Exceeds Expectations

WASHINGTON - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (news - web sites) said the Iraqi elections went "better than expected" Sunday, despite incomplete reports about the extent of voter turnout in areas plagued by intimidation and violence.

She also called insurgents "terrible thugs" who will not succeed in stopping voting and the progress of democracy in Iraq (news - web sites).

"Every indication is that the election in Iraq is going better than expected," Rice said on ABC's "This Week."

But Sen. John Kerry (news - web sites), D-Mass., sounded a note of caution in an interview on NBC's "Meet The Press."

"It is hard to say that something is legitimate when whole portions of the country can't vote and doesn't vote," Kerry said.

The government has reneged on a contractual promise made to career military men and women.

The United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has said, "They served their country for at least 20 years with the understanding that when they retired they and their dependents would receive full free health care for life". The Court also said, "Perhaps Congress will consider using its legal power to address the moral claims raised by Schism and Reinlie on their own behalf, and indirectly for other affected retirees".

Troops Report 'Atrocity Sites' in Fallujah
Sun Nov 21, 2:56 PM ET
 Middle East - AP

FALLUJAH, Iraq - U.S. troops have found close to 20 "atrocity sites" used by insurgents to imprison, torture and kill hostages in Fallujah, a U.S. military officer said Sunday. 

Marine Maj. Jim West said that in addition to numerous weapons caches, troops clearing the city after a major U.S.-led offensive had found rooms containing knives and black hoods, "many of them blood-covered."

Briefing reporters at a base outside Fallujah, West said one room had "handprints on the walls and along the sides of the walls ... There was blood covering the entire wall and along the floorboard area."

He said troops had found signs of "torture, murder, very gruesome sights."

"We found numerous houses where people were just chained to a wall for extended periods of time," he added.

West did not provide more details, but said "a few less than 20" such sites had been found in the city, a stronghold for insurgents 40 miles west of Baghdad.

At least 34 foreign hostages have been killed by their captors in Iraq (news - web sites) this year, including three Americans. Many of the victims have been beheaded and their deaths shown on grisly videos posted on the Internet. Iraqi police and other security forces have also been killed after their capture by insurgents.

West said more than 1,400 people were detained in connection with the Fallujah offensive. More than 400 of them have been released after interrogators determined they were non-combatants.

The military says an estimated 1,200 insurgents and more than 50 U.S. troops have been killed in the assault.

On Friday, Lt. Col. John Sattler, commander of the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force, said this month's offensive had "broken the back" of the insurgency. But U.S. troops and their Iraqi colleagues have continued to come under attack while searching for holdouts.

Marine Lt. Col. Daniel Wilson said troops were searching an estimated 30,000-50,000 buildings that could contain pockets of resistance. He said small numbers of insurgents managed to move in and out of the city but that a U.S. Army cordon around Fallujah kept most of the rebels contained.

Kerry Says He's Not Ruling Out Another Run

Wed Nov 17,12:46 PM ET
 Politics - U. S. Congress

By MARY DALRYMPLE, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - Sen. John Kerry (news - web sites), who has $45 million left from his record-breaking Democratic campaign, hinted on Tuesday that he may try again for the presidency.

On his first workday back in the Senate since losing his White House bid, Kerry remained far from the spotlight, granting interviews to hometown reporters and joining the depleted corps of Democrats as they elected the party's new Senate leaders.

In his first extensive interview since his Nov. 2 defeat, Kerry was asked by the Fox News affiliate in Boston about running again in 2008 and reminded the questioner that Ohio is still counting votes from 2004.

He then said, "It is so premature to be thinking about something that far down the road. What I've said is I'm not opening any doors, I'm not shutting any doors." Kerry added, "If there's a next time, we'll do a better job. We'll see."

Reflecting on his loss, Kerry said he was not sitting around thinking about it. "You've got to go on," he said. "Do I find it some mark of failure or distress, the answer is no."

The former presidential nominee described himself as a "fighter," and added, "I can envision a lot of years of fight ahead of me."

In an interview with WCVB-TV, Kerry said, "Fifty-thousand votes — we'd be in a different place, having a different conversation," a reference to Ohio, which decided the race.

The Democrats have no clear front-runner for the 2008 nomination. Kerry has a distinct financial advantage over any rival based on his fund raising.

Kerry had roughly $45 million left in his primary campaign fund as of mid-October and could use that as seed money for another presidential bid. In addition, he had about $7 million on hand in a legal and accounting compliance fund that he could use for legal expenses in a 2008 campaign.

Because Kerry accepted full public financing for the general election phase of this year's race, he will have to give any of that money that remains back to the government.

During his day in the Senate, Kerry's colleagues thanked him, congratulated him and wished him well.

"Every time his name was mentioned, there was enthusiastic applause. Literally, every time his name was mentioned," said Sen. Debbie Stabenow (news, bio, voting record), D-Mich.

Democrats met in a closed-door session to choose their leadership team for next year in what is certain to be an uphill struggle for the party. Not only did Democrats lose their second straight presidential election on Nov. 2, but the Republicans increased their numbers in the Senate and the House.

In January, the GOP will control 55 Senate seats to 44 for the Democrats with one Democratic-leaning independent.

Sen. Joe Lieberman (news - web sites), D-Conn., a former vice presidential candidate who lost in 2000 and a one-time presidential aspirant who fell short in the 2004 primaries, spoke from experience in offering Kerry words of support.

"He has a lot to be proud of, and I hope he'll find what I did — that it was great to have the U.S. Senate to come back to," Lieberman said.

Senators predicted that Kerry would find an expanded role as he eased back into his old job.

 

"Obviously, he brings some experience, and people are interested in what he has to say," said Sen. Ben Nelson (news, bio, voting record), D-Neb., pointing out that nearly half the country, if not quite enough to elect him president, voted for Kerry. President Bush (news - web sites) received 60.5 million votes to Kerry's 57.1 million.

Kerry didn't make any remarks on the Senate's pending legislation nor did he deliver any speeches at the Democrats' meetings. He met privately with Sen. Tom Daschle, D-S.D., the former Minority leader who, like Kerry, lost on Nov. 2. Kerry also thanked other Democrats one-by-one for their support.

Kerry got a two-minute standing ovation from his staff, whom he thanked for giving "your heart, your soul and even your vacation time," one aide said.

The day belonged to another Democrat, Sen. Harry Reid (news, bio, voting record) of Nevada, the party's newly elected leader. Questioned on a range of issues as he assumed the job, Reid predicted that Kerry will find a role, pointing to the four-term senator's past work on banking and foreign policy issues.

"Senator Kerry is not a shrinking violet," Reid said. "We are looking for John Kerry to find what he wants to do. We are sorry that he's not in the White House, but we're glad that he's back on Capitol Hill."

Kerry also met with his policy staff to talk about health care, energy and other legislation that might build on themes from his campaign.

Not since George McGovern lost a bid for the presidency in 1972 has a senator returned to the Senate as a defeated presidential candidate, according to the Senate Historical Office.

*******************************************************

In 2007, Honorable Vietnam Veterans Will Be Ready For KERRY Again...  The next time, he runs for president, John Kerry's full military record will be exposed.   Why didn't a Federal Judge order the release of his military record for this past election...?     (A Federal Judge ordered Bush's military record to be released.)

From: Joe Oliver

Vietnam Veterans Are Vindicated Finally and Forever!!!

Yesterday’s (ELECTION DAY) decision made by the American public was a referendum on America itself… I believe this election was easily the most critical in my lifetime of forty years… America has been fighting a cultural civil war since the late 1960’s, and I’ve had the honor and privilege to live through it… yesterday’s election had our society as we know it in the
balance…

For those of our veterans’ community who served honorably and have lived with a terrible burden of charges of unsubstantiated war crimes, of
claims of dereliction of duty, of broad based, excessive drug use, and the pall of defeat that has hung over their collective heads for thirty
years… the honorable, duty bound men and women who left their families and lives behind to risk their own persons in a far away land most had never heard of; and the 58,000 plus members who never came home from the unpopular war in Southeast Asia, have been vindicated by America’s citizenry once and for all.

With the resounding defeat of Senator John F. Kerry for his bid to become Commander in Chief of our Armed Forces, America has repudiated
the far Left in this country who seem to believe that the United States is the root of all evil in the world… America has decided who is contemptible… not the Hollywood elites, nor the Howard “Deaniacs”…

Michael Moore, who as a 21st century Joseph Goebbels created the propaganda film "Fahrenheit 911” and was allowed to sit at the most prestigious seat in the democratic party convention next to former President Jimmy Carter, has been dismissed by the American voters as the real “extremist” in America… NOT the average American in this nation that believe that marriage should be defined as a union between one man and one woman…

America also gave France and the other nations in Europe and the rest of the world who have refused to support the US and her allies in the War on Terror the middle finger!!! Those who will give away the security of the entire civilized world for financial gain – Germany, Russia, France, and others – will be even more minimized in the affairs of the civilized
world because of the decision made by American in yesterday’s elections…

We elected a president with the largest number of affirmative votes in the history of American Politics…we have also sent a clear and concise
message to our enemies and their willing accomplices, that America has the resolve to do what’s right, regardless of what the world’s popular consensus might be… the better America prevailed with yesterday’s decision to return President Bush…

Our enemies and their accomplices will have to face the realization that they will have to endure four more years of attempting to dig deep enough holes that our Armed Forces and our Intelligence Community cannot
locate them in…

The man who came home from Vietnam and joined the anti-war movement along with the likes of Hanoi Jane Fonda to publicly work against his
government and the servicemen and women while the war was still being waged, was not rewarded by giving him the opportunity to lead this
nation… his actions thirty years ago that he has built his entire political career on the defamation of American Servicemen was soundly
rejected by America…

The man that made his own service in Vietnam a potential rally point for much of the first half of his presidential campaign and then later dishonored his own service and the service of hundreds of thousands of fellow veterans who did their service time honorably, in most cases for YEARS not months, was told by America that this nation has NOT forgotten
his participation in smearing the good name of America’s veteran community…

The man who all these years as a Senior United States Senator whose own service record was dubious at best and not expunged until the Carter Administration’s Amnesty for the Vietnam era draft dodgers allowed for him to upgrade his Other Than Honorable Discharge to that of Honorable Service Discharge was told by America that he was not acceptable to be our Commander in Chief nor the single most important leader of the free world…

The man who supported the treasonous lies of the Winter Soldier Conference in Detroit and mocked the Flag Raising on Iwo Jima with an
anti-war book that trashed the service of America’s involvement in Vietnam for his own political gain… at the expense of American POW’s still in captivity… was told once and for all by the American public that his personal actions against our community have been made
dramatically clear. Does America believe in Michael Moore’s vision of America our do they believe in President Bush’s views…

The man who spent his early days in politics railing about false atrocities purportedly being levied against the Vietnamese by the lowly American servicemen, John Kerry will now be thrown onto the trash heap of history and the demons he helped create for an entire generation of American servicemen and women, have now been vanquished with his defeat…
HIS views of America’s Armed Forces have been repudiated – completely and forever!!!

Americans have resoundingly decided that good will triumph over evil, that the world IS in fact, a better place without the likes of Saddam Hussein, his prison for children, his son’s rape rooms and without his assistance directly and indirectly to terrorist organizations that make America and the entire world a more dangerous place…

Vietnam veterans had a significant impact on this election, and their service in Vietnam may not be an issue in American politics ever again… Yesterday, the American People have decided that it was time to finally say “Welcome Home” to those in our Armed Forces who served in Vietnam…

In a world that has been upside down for many of them for over three decades… they woke up today and found the world right side up!!!!

Welcome home brothers and sisters of Vietnam… YOUR victory yesterday (ELECTION DAY) against those who have spent their lives speaking out against your
honorable service for over three decades without apology - is better than ANY welcome home parade could ever be!!!

Swift Justice

Bold John sailed forth in his faux scow,
Till the Swiftees fired across his bow;
And legions of irate attorneys,
Could not defend Cambodian journeys,
Nor stories of his fabled hat,
So voters sensed they smelled a rat.
And while the networks denied them prime,
The Swiftees surely got their time.

While John screamed it was all a smear,
O’Brien came across sincere,
And forced Big John to duck the press,
To run, to hide from his specious mess.
But relentless those old Swiftee guys,
They bit, hung on, exposed his lies.
These brave old warriors once again
Stood for their country, for their kin.

They made us all look one more time
At the traitor who’d charged them with crime,
And gave false witness to their deeds
For nothing more than political needs.
It’s a smear proclaimed the New York Times
Those liars all committed crimes.
Chris Matthews raged, foamed at the mouth,
Still the turncoat’s campaign headed south.

So the Swiftboat Veterans’ charges stuck
And made poor John a sitting duck.
He had no answers, no glib replies,
To cover up his treasonous lies;
That made us think, our minds aware,
The Swiftees had some truth in there;
What if he’d faked his combat valor,
Were all those medals tinged with pallor?

Dan Rather would not pay them heed,
But still the Swiftees made John bleed.
The mainstream pundits called them liars;
But no lefty slant could staunch these fires.
The blazes that these Swiftees set
Were burning John Boy’s *** you bet;
And those Swiftboat fires just burned away
Till they fried John’s *** on election day.

Now all you heroes on that Wall
Take solace seeing Kerry fall.
This scheming pol who stained your name
Has been denied his claim to fame.
The Swiftees stood and did their best,
Denied the traitor his life’s quest.
You can rest in peace our honored kin
Your honor restored by honorable men.

Robert  loved the Vietnamese People in our peasant- farming village.
 
While on patrol, he died rushing to the aid of another CAP Marine, who had stepped on a booby-trap.
 
Robert Pierce believed in the United States.   And he believed in what he was doing, trying to save the Vietnamese peasants of the Duc Duc Resettlement Village from terrorists.  
      For Robert, it was not about politics...   It was about honor, and what was right!

LIBERALS TAKE ALL AMERICANS AS FOOLS

LIBERALS TAKE ALL AMERICANS AS FOOLS

As I Already Mentioned LIBERALS Take All Americans As Fools.

      The Constitution of the United States of America defines treason as follows:
''Section 3.  1.  Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.  No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.''
 
U.S. Constitution, Article III, Section 3.
 
Let's look at some facts.
 
1.    The Cover Up of Military Records.
 
       It has been widely reported for months, and not contradicted by John Kerry, that he has never signed the Form 180 required to fully release his military service file for public scrutiny.  Various news stories from multiple sources over the last few months report that somewhere between 31 and more than 100 pages of his records have not been released.  See ''Navy Contradicts Kerry on Release of Military Records,'' Marc Morano, CNSNews.com, September 16, 2004.  See http://www.cnsnews.com/.
 
       The Big Media, openly and completely complicit in the Kerry campaign, have never demanded that he do so, although the same Big Media have spent the last year parsing every word of President Bush's service records (George Bush signed Form 180 and fully released his service records years ago, while running for governor in Texas).
 
       The obvious question is: Why does John Kerry not want to release the rest of his service records?  What is in there that he does not want me, or you, or anyone else, to see?
 
       John Kerry will obviously do anything he can to win this election.  If his concealed records would help him, you can bet the farm he would publish them.
 
       Since he keeps them covered up, so to speak, you can bet the farm that they would hurt him, and that he knows it.  It's a pretty simple deduction that he knows releasing them would hurt him even worse than taking the heat for not releasing them.  If releasing the records would help his campaign, he would.  If releasing the records would help his campaign, he would have done so a year ago.
 
       What, exactly, is in them?  I don't know.  I haven't seen them either.  But whatever it is, it can't be good for his election chances.
 
2.    Kerry's 1971 Direct Ties to North Vietnam
 
       According to two new articles published in World Net Daily on October 26, 2004, ''Discovered Papers: Hanoi Directed Kerry,'' and on October 28, 2004, ''Another Document Ties Kerry to Hanoi,'' authenticated documents recently found in the Texas Tech University's Vietnam Archive in Lubbock, Texas, confirm that Kerry made two, and possibly three, direct contacts with Madame Nguyen Thi Binh and the North Vietnamese Delegation to the Paris Peace Talks in Paris, in he summer of 1971, where she is reported to have instructed him on how he and the Vietnam Veterans Against The War could ''serve as Hanoi's surrogates in the United States.''
 
        See www.WorldNetDaily.com articles numbered 41106 and 41142.
 
         John Kerry returned to the United States and on July 22, 1971, held a press conference publicly calling on President Nixon to accept the North Vietnamese's 7-point ''Peace Plan''--essentially calling for the surrender of the United States to North Vietnam.
 
        The seven points John Kerry and the North Vietnamese advocated were:
 
1.    The U.S. must agree to a date certain for total withdrawal of all U.S. and allied forces from South Vietnam.  If the date was set in 1971, North Vietnam would agree to a safe withdrawal of U.S. forces and a release of all POWs.
 
2.    The U.S. must no longer interfere in the internal affairs of South Vietnam.
 
3.    The North and South Vietnamese will ''settle the question of Vietnamese armed forces in South Viet Nam in a spirit of national concord.''
 
4.    The reunification of North and South Vietnam.
 
5.    That South Vietnam would pursue a ''foreign policy of peace and neutrality.''
 
6.    The U.S. would pay reparations for all the losses and destruction it had caused to the Vietnamese people (North and South).
 
7.    The parties, the United States and North Vietnam, would ''find agreement on the forms of respect for and international guarantee of the accords that will be concluded.''
 
[I have summarized these points for the sake of brevity.  Source: Liberation Press Agency, July 1, 1971, translation by Robert K. Brigham and Le Phuong Anh.]
 
        I.e., the United States would unconditionally withdraw from South Vietnam, and would not interfere with the completely predictable takeover of South Vietnam by the North Vietnamese communists.
 
        In this press conference, John Kerry advocated that the United States surrender to North Vietnam on the terms and conditions proposed by North Vietnam, at a time when John Kerry was a reserve officer in the United States Navy, the United States was at war with North Vietnam, and American POWs were being held and tortured by North Vietnam.  This followed just three months after Kerry's famous congressional testimony in April 1971, when he falsely claimed that American troops in Vietnam, including himself, had committed war crimes and atrocities on a daily basis, with official sanction.
 
       Men who were POWs at the time, including Senator John McCain, have since reported that John Kerry's congressional testimony and other anti-war activism was used as propaganda against them by their torturers.  See ''Stolen Honor.''
 
        This conduct by John Kerry, which appears to be thoroughly documented and undisputed, clearly appears to give ''aid and comfort'' to an enemy of the United States, in a time of war, and to be prosecutable as treason.
 
3.    The Crime of Private Diplomacy
 
        John Kerry's meetings with Madame Binh and the North Vietnamese Delegation appear to violate 18 US Code 953, which provides:
''Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.''
 
        I.e., Congress by 18 USC 953 has declared it a crime for a private citizen to conduct private diplomacy adverse to the public policy and interests of the United States, without the prior authority of the U.S. Government.
 
       And this is exactly what John Kerry appears to have done--he met with the North Vietnamese Delegation and attempted, in collaboration with an enemy of the United States, to effect the surrender of the United States to North Vietnam.
 
       His office has denied this, and claimed that he just happened to be taking a honeymoon in Paris when he just happened to drop in on Madam Nguyen Thi Binh and the North Vietnamese Delegation for a spot of tea and strumpets, sorry, I mean crumpets, or croissants, perhaps, and a couple of  weeks later he just happens to give a highly publicized anti-war press conference in America calling on President Nixon to accept all seven points of the North Vietnamese surrender demands forthwith - this explanation doesn't even pass the straight-face test!
 
       Just how many honeymooning couples in Paris that spring just happened to drop in to see Madam Nguyen Thi Binh of the North Vietnamese Delegation to the Paris Peace Conference, do you think?
 
       See ''Kerry's Meeting With Communists Violated U.S. Law,'' CNS News, May 20, 2004.
 
4.    The Discharge Mysteries
 
       In the New York Sun, October 13, 2004, in an article entitled ''Mystery Surrounds Kerry's Navy Discharge,'' Thomas Lipscomb describes how unusual circumstances surrounding John Kerry's discharge from the Navy and the reissue--the reissue--of his medals after Kerry joined the Senate on June 4, 1985, suggest that he received something other than an honorable discharge.
 
       For brevity, I shall simply refer you to the article at www.nysun.com/pf.php?id=3107.
 
5.    The First Amendment Breach
 
       In the last few months and weeks, John Kerry and the Kerry Campaign have at least twice violated, or attempted to violate, the First Amendment rights of American citizens, the right of free political speech.
 
       In August, 2004, Kerry's lawyers threatened to sue the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth, and any television station that carried their ads, when the Swiftboat Veterans, men who had served alongside John Kerry in Vietnam, began running te;evosopm ads expressing their opinion that John Kerry was ''Unfit for Command.''
 
       In October, 2004, Kerry's lawyers again threatened Sinclair Broadcasting Group, Inc., with lawsuits and retaliation if it ran the documentary, ''Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal,'' which highlights the testimony of former POWs who describe how their imprisonment was lengthened, their torture was intensified, and their physical and emotional pain was aggravated, by the aid and comfort John Kerry's anti-war activism gave to the enemy in the early 1970s.
 
       The freedom of speech is the very second right guaranteed by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, following only the freedom of religion.  Indeed, modern liberalism kicked itself off with the ''Free Speech Movement'' at Sproul Plaza at UC Berkeley in the 1960s with loud and often profane demands that nobody interfere with its First Amendment right to speak freely and say anything!
 
       It has come full circle, and the Free Speechers of yesterday are now doing all they can to suppress the free speech of anyone who disagrees with them today.  John Kerry's efforts to suppress the freedom of his political opponents to speak freely and publicly, while not precisely an act of ''treason,'' is clearly an act in violation of the United States Constitution, in violation of the First Amendment, and in violation of John Kerry's Senatorial oath to ''protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.''
 
       This is, in my opinion, a wholly despicable act, an act beneath contempt, an act that betrays John Kerry's utter and complete disregard of the Constitution which John Kerry has twice sworn to protect and defend, an act that betrays John Kerry's utter and complete disregard of the Constitution he will again swear to protect and defend if he is elected president, an illegal act by John Kerry, a presidential aspirant, a senator, and a lawyer, who of all people should know better.
 
       America cannot afford a president who holds the First Amendment of the Constitution in such deep contempt that he will violate it at will to get elected.  If he does not respect the First Amendment while campaigning for office, I fear the disregard in which he and his administration may hold it, and any other amendment, if, or while, he holds office.
 
       John Kerry has not been tried for treason.  He has not been convicted.  He may never be tried, and if he were tried, he might not be convicted.  I cannot predict the future.  But he hasn't even been elected, and these circumstances are already the beginning of the first great scandal of a Kerry presidency: Kerrygate.
 
       The Democratic Party cannot afford to elect a Democrat as President who has committed treason, or who has given aid and comfort to an enemy of the United States, or who has acted with open disregard of the First Amendment in the conduct of his presidential campaign; a man who may be subject to removal from the presidency after he takes office, without impeachment, but simply by a judicial determination that he is disqualified from the presidency by the U.S. Constitution, Article III Section 3, and by the  U.S. Constitution, Amendment 14 Section 3.
 
       The Democratic Party cannot afford to elect this man, not if the Democratic Party wants to remain a credible, respected, and cohesive force in American life and politics.  Not if it wants to survive this election, or a Kerry presidency.
 
       The euphoria of the election will quickly fade in the litigious aftermath of the voting discrepancies, real and imaginary, and then the lawsuits contesting John Kerry's eligibility to be president at all will come.  This will begin one of the most heated and contentious legal and political battles in American history.  And the blood will be on the hands of the Democratic Party which has nominated and elected a man who appears to have committed treason, to have given aid and comfort to any enemy of the United States in a time of war, to the presidency.
 
       And if Kerry is removed from office, then the Presidency will fall on the shoulders of John Edwards, a one-term senator from South Carolina who would not be re-elected to the Senate if he ran again, a trial lawyer who has made himself rich by suing doctors, a man with no military experience, no international diplomatic experience, no national political experience before this election, a man whom even John Kerry has called unqualified to be president!
 
       And what if this legal challenge to the legitimacy of a Kerry presidency occurs at a time of great danger to the United States?  In the midst of a war on terrorism?  If it disrupts the ability of the administration to conduct that war?  What if the election of such a candidate is, itself, an act of giving aid and comfort to an enemy of the United States?
 
       These are serious questions, and serious issues, about which I see no public discussion, certainly not in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, the San Francisco Chronicle, or on ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, MSNBC, or even Fox News. 
 
       We are on the verge of an election.  John Kerry is still covering up some of his own service records, and whatever is in them, and the American people deserve to know what he doesn't want us to know.  Where is the ''Peoples' Right to Know'' now?  We need to know, before we vote.  We don't like cover-ups.  We have called them Watergate.  Iran-Contragate.  Whitewatergate.  Monicagate.  They have brought down some presidents, and humbled others.  We may call the next one Kerrygate.
 
       And John Kerry and the Democrats will have no one to blame but themselves.

And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction  ...

The word about John Kerry must be spread on the internet, because the American News Media is completely behind his lies of 2004;  just like the American News Media was completely behind his lies in 1971.

Please pass the word about John Kerry.  If you read some thing on the internet that moves you about this traitor,  please print it off so non-internet Americans will learn the truth.

From: lou rizzo 
 
FORKED TONGUES  - SO NOW EVERY ONE OF THESE SAME DEMOCRATS SAY PRESIDENT BUSH LIED--THAT THERE NEVER WERE ANY WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION AND HE TOOK US TO WAR UNNECESSARILY ?

It is amazing how the facts are unimportant to so many, and how soon they forget!      Were their words just that words or did their words mean something else?  (read through to the bottom!)

"One way or the other, we are determined to deny
Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line."  - President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

"If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by
Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."  - President Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998  

Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face." - Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998 

"He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."  -
Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998 
 
"[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs."  - Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sen... Carl Levin (D-MI), Tom Daschle (D-SD), John Kerry( D - MA), and others Oct. 9, 1998

"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."  -
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998 

"Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on b building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies." -
Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999 

"There is no doubt that ... Saddam Hussein has invigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop p longer-range missiles that will threaten the
United States and our allies." - Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen.... Bob Graham (D, FL,) and others, December 5, 2001 

"We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and threat to the  peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandated of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them."
- Sen.... Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept.. 19, 2002

"We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."  -
Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002 

"Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power" - Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002 

"We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction." -
Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002 

"The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..." - Sen... Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002 

"I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force-- if necessary-- to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security." - Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002 

"There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years . We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction."-
Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002 

"He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do" -
Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002 

"In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members.. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."  -
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY),  Oct 10, 2002 

"We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction."  -
Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002 

"Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction  ... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real"  - Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003

       Jack Cunningham (Sussex, NJ) and George Dros (New York State) are sitting at a table in a Duc Duc Resettlement Village peasant hut near the market place.  Our eyes were shut, because of complete exhaustion.  It was July 1970.  At the time this picture was taken, the Americans in the Duc Duc Resettlement Village were not sure whether the CAP Unit would be pulled out of the village or whether it would be wiped out.  The last three months, we had been experiencing some heavy combat.   Intelligence reports were coming in daily that the Communists wanted to punish the village, while the Americans were still there. 
       By wiping out the Americans in CAP 2-9-2, the communist terrorists hoped to leave an example to other CAP Villages.   With alerts at the highest level, night ambush responsibilities were 100% watch throughout the night.  With two long patrols a day going outside the village, it didn't leave much time for the eight or so Americans of the CAP Team to sleep. 
       Around the day this picture was taken, an intelligence report came in from Marine Division Headquarters in Da Nang that the high Communist Command wanted to speed up President Nixon's troop pullout from Vietnam.  They wanted to embarrass the Americans on a wide-scale and influence the American People into pressuring a faster troop pullout.  The communist plan called for wiping out the Fifth Marines at the An Hoa Combat Base.   It was going to involve thousands of Communist Forces.   The Duc Duc Resettlement Village was on the large Marine Base's perimeter and was said to be the main route for the Communist attack.
     Our orders that night in July 1970 was to set up in the most well-protected position of our village.  Our Cap Unit was expected to hold off the Communist drive off as long as possible.  We were expected to serve as a warning for the Fifth Marines at the An Hoa Combat Base.
 
       In March 30, 1971, a large number of  regular communist army forces, along with terrorists (VC)  burned much of the Duc Duc Resettlement Village down.   Over 250 men, women and children were killed, wounded and missing.   The slaughter was left out of American television news reports.    WHY...

LIBERAL POLITICAL AGENDA IN AMERICA'S PUBLIC COLLEGES

From: CAGDOC66@AOL.COM        (A CAP Navy Corpsman)

By Barbara J. Stock

Over 30 years ago they put away their medals and their uniforms. They buried their anger and bitterness and moved on with their lives--and they waited.

Revisionists are trying to change history, claiming the returning Viet Nam veterans didn’t suffer all that much when they returned home. All that talk of being labeled animals has been exaggerated over the years. But the veterans know better. They were there.

On the radio last week, one man related that he had unpacked the uniform that he wore home from Viet Nam all those years ago. It had not seen the light of day for over 30 years. He showed it to his children and grandchildren and, for the first time, spoke of the day that he returned home from war and was spat on, cursed at, and literally had to run a gauntlet of protesters who threw human waste and rotten fruit on him and his fellow vets. With the words “baby killers” ringing in his ears he was warned by laughing policemen not to retaliate or he would be arrested. So he ran. The able-bodied helped the wounded as they do on any battlefield because those on crutches or in wheelchairs were not spared the profanity and bags full of feces that were thrown at them by the raging anti-war protesters.

This now middle-aged vet went on to tell his family that he had hid in the bathroom at the airport for over two hours, bewildered and afraid. He wondered if he had landed in some foreign land where Americans were hated. Finally, he cleaned up the uniform he was still proud to wear as best he could and made his way to his plane, where he suffered more insults from the passengers. When he got home, he packed up his medals and his dirty uniform, just as it was, and he knew that one day, he would take it out again and he would have his say. That day has come.

One POW stated that he had never put a face to the name until he heard the words “Genghis Khan” pronounced only as John Kerry does and suffered his first flashback to the time he was being tormented by Kerry’s words in a North Vietnamese prison camp.

They buried their anger and the bitterness --and they waited. Most of them didn’t know who or what would be the signal to make their move, but they knew they would recognize it when it happened.

On July 29, 2004, it happened. John Forbes Kerry came to the podium at the Democratic Convention and uttered three words that made many Viet Nam vets skin crawl: “Reporting for Duty!” At last the time had come for these long-suffering veterans.

The past was staring back at these wrongly disgraced vets from their television sets. The face it bore was that of John Kerry, the man who had shredded their honor without a thought and climbed over the bodies of their fallen friends to launch a political career. Kerry had stripped them of their dignity the day he sat before Congress in his fatigues and portrayed them as “baby killers” and “murderers.” Kerry did the unspeakable. He had publicly turned on his fellow vets while they were still in harm’s way and American prisoners were still in the hands of the enemy. Kerry accused them all of being out-of-control animals, killing, raping, and pillaging Viet Nam at will. The anti-war movement--the protesters--had their hero and he was a Viet Nam War veteran, an officer, a medal winner, a wounded warrior: John Forbes Kerry.

Many Viet Nam vets buried the memories of their less-than-welcome homecoming, and John Kerry moved off the national scene. The feelings of betrayal had faded, but they were never resolved. The unprecedented injustice inflicted on the Viet Nam vets has always lain just under the surface, waiting for a chance to be uncovered. The war had stolen their youth and innocence and John Kerry stole their dignity and rightful place of honor in history.

Like an unlanced boil, the anger festered but there was nothing that could ease the pain. These vets didn’t ask for “forgiveness” because they had done nothing wrong in serving their country. They never asked to be treated as heroes, just good soldiers. All they have ever wanted was the respect due all the men and women who have worn the uniform of this country. Being allowed to march in a few parades wasn’t enough. A long over-due memorial was not enough. The Viet Nam Veterans moveable wall only brought back the suffering as they searched for the names of their fallen friends whose memory had been defiled and disgraced by people who considered them rampaging killers instead of men who died with honor for their country.

Now before them stands this man who would be president--this man who holds his service in Viet Nam up as a badge of honor now that it suits his purposes. This man Kerry brags about his medals and his tiny wounds and demands the respect they were denied, yet he offers no apologies for what he did to them. “I will be a great leader!” Kerry proclaims, because of his brief and self-proclaimed valiant service while wearing a uniform--the very same uniform that they wore and were spat upon because of it.

All across America, soiled uniforms and memories of being shamed and humiliated have resurfaced and Vietnam vets demand their rightful place in history. John Kerry seems bewildered by the reaction of his “fellow vets.” He has become defensive and angry because now his service and honor are being questioned. Kerry seems oblivious to the pain he caused three decades ago when he stole all honor and dignity from those same “fellow vets” for personal gain. Now he wants to use them again, for the same reason.

All across America, Viet Nam vets are smiling. At last, perhaps they can bury their demons. These angry vets are demanding that this man who sentenced them to being shunned as criminals, tell the world that he was wrong and that he is sorry for what he did to them. Kerry must admit that he lied about them.

For many, it would still not be enough. Satisfaction and hopefully peace will come when Viet Nam vets see and hear John F. Kerry give his concession speech the night of November 2, 2004 with the knowledge that it was their votes that helped defeat him. There are approximately 2.5 million Viet Nam veterans in America and they have not forgotten.

Kerry denied them their rightful place as heroes and they will deny him his dream of the presidency. Angry Viet Nam veterans, silent for so long, will finally have their say. Payment in full will be delivered to John Kerry on November 2, 2004...

*What News Stories Were Covered by the America News Media back in March/April 1971?
 
In the Vietnamese peasant-farming village, where I lived (24/7) back in 1970, most of the villagers hated the violence surrounding them everyday...   For more details and pictures about this massacre and details about the Hue City Massacres, please visit this link.    (The Duc Duc Resettlement Village was just outside the wire of the Fifth Marines Combat Base at An Hoa.  Maps ) http://home.earthlink.net/~ducducvietnamfriends          The men, women and children of my peasant-farming village hated everything to do with war TOO!    All they wanted to do was live normal lives with their families.    
       In the end, the Vietnamese Communist Army, communist terrorists and their supporters punished the village.  
        In March 1971, my Duc Duc Resettlement Village was burned to the ground.  Eight hundred (800)  homes were burned down and hundreds of men, women and children were murdered, wounded or missing. 
 
        Although this slaughter took place, it was not covered by the American News Media.

Attack on Duc Duc Information for HML-167

And HML-367  For date 710329

 

 

HML-167 was a US Marine Corps unit in Vietnam  HML-367

was a US Marine Corps unit in Vietnam

 

Primary service involved, US Marine Corps

Quang Nam Province, I Corps, South Vietnam

Location, Duc Duc

 

Description: At 0210H two battalions of the 38th NVA Regt

 reinforced by two VC sapper battalions, attacked Duc Duc, a

District Headquarters just west of An Hoa, defended by the

412th RF Company and the 1123d PF Platoon with a handful

of US Army advisors. At 0254H the 1st MAW’s Black Hammer

helicopter patrol, which consisted of a HML-167 UH-1E,

equipped with infrared observation device and a Xenon

searchlight, and two HML-367 AH-1J’s, launched from Marble

Mountain.  The cloud ceiling of 600 to 800 feet prevented

fixed-wing air support during the night.  The VC sapper had set

fire to a number of villages around Duc Duc and this actually

helped the helicopters locate the area.  For the next fours hours

the Sea Cobras expended 2,800 rounds of 20mm cannon and

64 rockets.  As the NVA force fell back, they used boats to

cross the Thu Bon River and the Cobras sank six of them

while killing at least four NVA.

(Da Nang was about 20 miles northeast of Duc Duc.  The flames must have been pretty bad, for the helicopter pilots to see it from Da Nang.)

 

Back in 1971, how could something like the Duc Duc Resettlement Village Massacre  NOT be covered by the American News Media.  Just think, if the American News Media carried this story instead of Kerry's CRAP, where would Vietnam be politically and FREEDOM WISE today...

 

This is why the Communist Country of Vietnam considers John Kerry a hero for communism...  He has his own wing in a Hanoi Communist Patriots Museum.

Communist Vietnamese honor John Kerry, the war protestor, as a hero in their victory over the United States in the Vietnam War -- Part II.

On Memorial Day, May 31, 2004, Vietnam Vets for the Truth broke an extraordinary story about a photograph hanging in the Vietnamese Communist War Remnants Museum (formerly known as the "War Crimes Museum") in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). The photograph, displayed in a room dedicated to foreign activists who contributed to the Communist victory over America in the Vietnam War, shows Senator John Kerry being greeted by Comrade Do Muoi, General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam. Jeffrey M. Epstein of Vietnam Vets for the Truth acquired the photograph during the Memorial Day weekend in response to a general request for photographs and records detailing Kerry's activities on behalf of the enemy.

Vietnam Vets for the Truth has now further documented the photograph. Photographer Bill Lupetti returned to the War Remnants Museum in Saigon on June 2 at the request of Dr. Jerome Corsi, co-author of the original article, and photographed a current edition of the "Viet Nam News" next to the display honoring John Kerry.

Photo displayed in the War Remnants Museum (formerly the "War Crimes Museum") in Saigon. The June 2, 2004, edition of "Viet Nam News" is held beside the Kerry photograph to confirm the date the photo was taken. English-language placard below photograph reads: "Mr. Do Muoi, Secretary General of the Vietnam Communist Party met with Congressmen and Veterans Delegation in Vietnam (July 15-18, 1993)."

Dr. Corsi asked Mr. Lupetti to more thoroughly document the layout and scope of the museum, particularly the section featuring those foreign anti-war activists whom the Vietnamese communists wished to honor. He took a number of additional photos at the War Remnants Museum and elsewhere, several of which are presented below.

WND Exclusive Commentary 

Kerry praised Ho Chi Minh!


http://worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=39982

 2004 WorldNetDaily.com     

You might think you've heard all the startling revelations about John Kerry's history from the new book, "Unfit for Command," by John O'Neill and Jerome Corsi.

Think again.

As I finish reading this book, I continue to find – literally on every page – new information that stuns even me, someone who has watched John Kerry's career with skepticism and alarm for the last 33 years.

Take this, for instance.

On June 29, 1971, according to an FBI report, Kerry praised Vietnam's communist dictator Ho Chi Minh, comparing him to George Washington.

At the time, Kerry was serving as the point man for the Vietnam Veterans Against the War. The president of the organization was Al Hubbard, who claimed to be an Air Force captain who was severely injured during his service in Vietnam. It turned out Hubbard was a sergeant who never served in Vietnam. He did, however, as Kerry knew, serve the communist cause with great enthusiasm and distinction – making propaganda trips to Hanoi paid for by the Communist Party USA.

Kerry didn't distance himself from Hubbard even when the lies were uncovered. In fact, he rationalized them. Kerry didn't distance himself from Hubbard when he became aware, as an executive committee member of VVAW, that its actions were being coordinated and sponsored, in part, by the communists.

Furthermore, Kerry himself made two trips to Paris to meet with representatives of the enemy.

He was also present at VVAW steering committee meetings in which debates took place about assassinating three U.S. senators. Kerry, of course, did not report these crimes to any authorities. Kerry tried to say he had quit the organization before these meetings. Now he claims his memory is hazy about what took place – that he doesn't recall hearing any of these dire plots.

Of course, his fantasy about being in Cambodia during Christmas 1968 is "seared" in his memory banks. Yet, he has no recollection about his fellow executive committee members discussing murder plots.

Is it any wonder with that kind of track record that Kerry would tell extraordinary lies for 30 years about spending time in Cambodia on illegal missions? Is it any wonder he would tell extraordinary lies about atrocities by American troops? Is it any wonder that he would tell extraordinary lies about his own "heroics" on the battlefield?

What is a wonder is the fact that 33 years later Kerry has enough credibility left to make run for the presidency on a major party ticket.

I keep hearing other commentators talk about his honorable record of service in Vietnam. They must not be reading this book very carefully. They must not be listening to those with whom Kerry actually served. They must be listening only to Kerry's own public relations machine.

John Kerry dishonored America and the uniform of the U.S. Navy long before he got back to the states and betrayed his fellow servicemen with lies about atrocities.

According to nearly everyone he served with in Vietnam, Kerry was a self-serving malcontent from the day he arrived in Vietnam for his brief four-month visit. He was disgruntled. He avoided combat. He didn't obey orders. But he did go beyond the call of duty in the pursuit of one objective – seeking medals and commendations and a shortened stay in Vietnam.

It's way past time for my colleagues in the news media to join me in calling on Kerry to execute Standard Form 180, which would release to the public all his military and medical records for examination by the American people before Election Day. So far, he has not done so, despite the demands of more than 250 of his fellow Vietnam veterans.

This refusal continues even after Kerry made his Vietnam experience the very cornerstone of his campaign beginning with his acceptance speech at the convention.

If we're to believe Kerry's war experience somehow distinguishes him for consideration to be the next president, if we're to believe that record of achievement is so distinguished, if we're to believe the portrait painted at the convention is true, why would Kerry hesitate for even a moment to release his service records, to release his medical records and even his own journal and films from Vietnam for public inspection?

THE BELOW ARTICLE COMES FROM THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Unfit for command?


By Tony Blankley

I stayed up late last night and read from cover to cover the book "Unfit for Command — Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry." An impartial reader (if there is still such a beast in this election season) would have to conclude that either the book is a pack of lies or John Kerry is in fact a reckless, lying man who misrepresented the facts in order to receive medals he didn't deserve, and is indeed unfit to command even a tug boat, let alone the United States military as president.
    The book appears to be meticulously researched and reported. It is replete with copious footnotes, a detailed index and two appendices. First-hand witnesses are named and quoted verbatim to support each specific, shocking charge. Each charge of false heroics is logically presented. Theauthors quote the official Navy citation and then present the purported eyewitnesstestimony that refutes the official finding. The witnesses who are summoned forth are officers and men who served simultaneously with Mr. Kerry in Coastal Division 11 and purport to be eyewitnesses to the events in question.

    And yet, there is another group of men, the sailors who served directly under John Kerry on the same boat with him — his band of brothers. They have traveled around the country with Mr. Kerry and have vouched for his description of his heroic, able and selfless service to our country.
    One of these groups of men are lying through their teeth. This is not a case of failed memories. In a few instances, it could be a case of honest differences of perception of events. But considering all the testimony and evidence, John Kerry is either Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde. As of this moment there is about a 50-50 chance that we will elect, in the person of John Kerry, either a very fine man or a truly despicable man president of the United States.
    Either group of men, if we knew nothing else, would seem to be credible, reliable witnesses. Both groups of men served honorably in Vietnam, gained many medals and have apparently lived respectable lives since then. Few if any of them have been politically active in the last 30 years.
    The men making the charges are almost all of his fellow officers and the higher chain of command in Kerry's coastal Division 11. The book points out that on John Kerry's Web site he has a photo of himself and 19 fellow swift boat officers, taken while they were simultaneously serving in that unit. Of those 19 fellow officers, 11 have asked him to stop using their image with him. Of the remaining eight, two are deceased, four don't wish to be involved and one is not a supporter of Kerry but didn't have the opportunity to sign the letter calling for the photo to be taken off the Web site. Only one of the 19, Skip Barker, supports Mr. Kerry.
    There has been some confusion about whether the witnesses against Kerry had an adequate view of his conduct, compared with the view of his supporters who were on his boat. The book explains that the swift boats usually moved in a pack of three or four on the same mission. They operated within yards of each other. Moreover, they all docked, bunked, ate and lived in the same camp.
    If one compared their relations to an army company of men, the fellow junior officers who captained the tiny swift boats were the functional equivalent of squad leaders, each with their own handful of men under them. Squad leaders, operating on the same mission together, are in excellent positions to assess the performance of their fellow squad leaders. They are covering each other's flanks. The book is filled with testimony of these men, describing what they claim they clearly saw John Kerry doing and not doing.
    Of course, almost every presidential campaign has an outcropping of scandal charges. Usually it is by one or two people — a woman who claimed she met the candidate in a bar, some political opponent from a long forgotten campaign reprieving his shopworn, uncorroborated calumny. If a book is involved in such charges, the opposing party usually finds a hack ghost-writer.
    But this scandal charge is by more than 200 respectable former naval officers and men. The primary author, John O'Neill, first started publicly challenging Mr. Kerry more than 30 years ago on the Dick Cavett Show. The co-author, Jerome Corsi, is not a political hack, but a college friend of Mr. O'Neill, with a Ph.D. from Harvard and a distinguished writing career.
    The book has the ring of sincerity to it, and the mark of careful research and writing. If they are not telling the truth, all these men have exposed themselves to financially ruinous libel actions by Mr. Kerry — who has the private resources to prosecute such actions. Even as a public figure, he might well win such an action, if this book is the pack of lies the Kerry camp says it is.
    If it is not a pack of lies, the nation needs to know that, too. I would encourage some of the major voices of the non-conservative mainline media — Tim Russert, Dan Rather, Leonard Downie Jr. of The Washington Post — to do as I did. Spend an evening reading the book. If they are not struck by the damning picture it paints of John Kerry and the credibility of the presentation, forget about it. But if they judge it as I did, then let their consciences be their guide.
