It wasn't Jane's fault.   It was because her former husbands made her do it.
(SHE  MUST  BE  TRYING  TO  MAKE  A  COMEBACK.
SHE THINKS AMERICANS ARE STUPID...)
 
 

DISNEY made it big on good, moral, honorable, American family stories.  It's when DISNEY changed their format that the Corporation started having problems.

Wal-Mart made it big;  because they advertised everything sold in the store was American-Made.

Boy, how things change!!

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.

Andrew Borene, a law student at the University of Minnesota, was a first lieutenant with the Marine Expeditionary Force in Iraq. He is an adviser to Operation Truth, a veterans' advocacy group.

Below are pictures of two signs being held at the Washington DC Rally against John Kerry in September 2004.

VIETNAM VETERANS AGAINST JOHN KERRY

Having received the two above hand-held posters during the Washington DC Vietnam Veteran Rally against John Kerry, former Combined Action Program (CAP) Marine Jack Cunningham placed them inside his apartment.  Now, under threat of eviction, and the cost of all legal costs, the proud and honorable, disabled veteran is ordered to immediately remove the posters from sight of his apartment window.   

His Englewood, New Jersey landlord has brought a NOTICE TO CEASE order against the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) disabled vet under the New Jersey Law (N.J.S.A. 2A: 18-61)   a)   "Maintain the apartment in clean, sanitary and safe condition."

 

Personally, I feel that since my two signs are NOT endangering anyone's physical health, they must be considered not clean or sanitary.  I would assume now that  I'm being forced to remove my two signs from sight, all objects dealing with Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, American patriotism, religious, etc. could also be removed under the same NJ Law.   “I do not think it is fair,” Cunningham stated.

       I strongly feel I’m being discriminated against and harassed, because of my views against John Kerry.   After serving honorably in Vietnam, I think that I earned my right to place my signs on an inside table.  

       You can read some of my Vietnam War experiences for free at:   http://www.CapVeterans.com    I was NO hero, but I served honorably and lived (24/7) in a Vietnamese Peasant-Farming village.   I returned from Vietnam in 1971 as Senator John Kerry was telling America, and The World that Vietnam Veterans were baby-killers...   

Hear John Kerry In 1971 Confess To War Crimes
FROM THE CHILDREN OF VIETNAM VETERANS

 

I think my current Landlord crap is more of a discriminatory attack against my right to Free Speech and Expression than a safety or sanitary issue...    After reviewing the pictures that I took from around the apartment complex today, please tell me what you think.   

          Jack Cunningham   ProudCapMarine@earthlink.net

 

I did remove the signs and built this web page to get out the message. 

Although the two posters were in my front window for over a month and a half,  NO tenants complained.

On 10/25/2004, I was informed by a Landlord representive that the "KERRY CALLED US BABY-KILLERS" poster offended a Real Estate Agent, who sells the apartments here, and happens to be a Jehovah Witness.  I do not know whether the Real Estate Agent's was offended on religious or political grounds.    Since a number of tenants in this complex have symbols and signs on and around their windows and apartment fronts for patriotic, religious, seasonal and holiday reasons,  I know it was NOT on Lease grounds.   PICTURES OF SOME BUILDING FRONTS AND APARTMENT WINDOWS.

The funny thing is...   the fact that KERRY CALLED US  BABY-KILLERS offended the crap out of me for over 33 years now.  [Senator John Kerry has NEVER apologized, and still stands by his repeated 1971 statements.]

Please pass this link around.   I'll add updates to this website as they come in.    http://home.earthlink.net/~proud_vietnam_veteran/

I removed the signs, but I'm going after the landlord for discrimination and my right to Free Speech.  Since I love the religious, patriotic, seasonal and holiday decorations of tenants in this complex, I  felt it better NOT to push the truth about Senator John Kerry in my window.  Although it would be like closing the barn door after the horse ranout, I felt the Landlord would backlash on the other tenants. 

Next month, Christmas decorations will cover this place.  Christmas trees will have their lights on and many will be near windows. 

Santa Claus is fake, but Kerry still proudly stands by his 1971 repeated statements of VIETNAM VETERANS WERE BABY-KILLERS.   (I do NOT understand this type of discrimination.  Since the poster states the truth, the poster is NOT even political...    It's Historical!!)
   Thanks!

Just below  is the Lease Rule that my wife and I are accused of violating.  Soon after the Lease Rule, you will find my wife's response to the landlord.

ACCUSED OF VIOLATING LEASE RULE 10

10.   No sign, signal, advertisement or illumination shall be inscribed   or exposed on or at any window or other part of the building, except such as shall be approved in writing by the Landlord; neither shall anything be projected out of any window without such consent.  Nothing shall be placed on any windowsill or ledge.

Dear Ethan,

 

In response to your letter written October 22, 2004 I would like to state that I am extremely annoyed and insulted. My husband has lived in this complex for 5 years and I have been here two. We have been model tenants and can’t see why you felt the need to send this insulting, harassing and threatening letter along with the “legal supplements” to us. A simple phone call would have been enough. I resent being treated like a criminal of some sort.

 

We do not now nor ever had a sign outside our apartment. My husband attended a rally in Washington D.C. and came home with two hand held signs made of paper. I put them in the window.

 

When Mr. kerry came home from Vietnam he told the congress and senate and anyone who would listen to him that all Vietnam soldiers where baby killers. My husband lived in a village with the peasants and never killed a woman or child. But, do you know how he was treated when he came home. A man running for president said those words, created a lot of pain for veterans like my husband but we can’t repeat them on a sign.

 

The New Jersey Law that you brought to our attention does not in any way apply to this situation. Our apartment is clean, sanitary and safe. You are grasping at straws.

 

Rules and regulations #10 has been complied with but then please don’t let me see any signs of Christmas, Chanukah, Halloween, Easter or any other things that express a belief in anything in any other window in the complex. I suggest that you personally come to the complex and take a good look at all the windows in which things hang, inside and out.  Did you know just how many things Jehovah’s Witnesses find offensive? What next.

 

Rules and regulations #10 would most definitely pertain to the many items I have seen in and outside other people’s windows here.  Therefore, you have discriminated against us.

   Born: November 26, 1949
   Hometown: Ft. Gaines, Ga.
   Killed in Action: Aug. 11, 1970
   Unit: Marine Corps
   Combined Action Program (CAP)

The Duc Duc Resettlement Village
   Age: 20
 
 
 
Robert was not a baby-killer or a village-burner.   He 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!

Robert was my friend.  GOD BLESS HIM...   (And let him always be remembered as an American Hero.)
