We all know that the Democrats have done everything they can to let the American people know that John Kerry served in Vietnam. The two Johns have been screaming it all over the place, "I served in Vietnam!", "He served in Vietnam!", "I'm running for president and by the way, I served in Vietnam!". But has Kerry's service really been told to the American public? According to a new book from the swift boat veterans that served with Kerry not at all.
According to them Kerry is more of a traitor then a hero and apparently it may be true due to the reaction from the Kerry camp. For the past week they have been screaming about the apparent "lies" that these war heroes have dug up. We know for a fact that the Kerry spokes person isn't the happiest man in the world, "They hired a goddamn private investigator to dig up trash!" is what he yelled at reporters. The book won't be released until later this month but it has already shot up to the number one spot on Amazon sales.
The book states that all three of Kerry's purple hearts were for minor injuries, some that were even self inflicted and that all three injuries could have been treated with band-aids. Not one of his injuries deserved a purple heart according to this book.
The authors also tell us how John Kerry carried a 8mm camera and a typewriter to video tape his actions in Vietnam and to record exaggerated storied of his "valor" in battle. The book also gives us several first hand accounts of eye witnesses that saw Kerry shoot a young Vietnamese teenager in the back and then burn a small village to the ground.
But the following claim in the book must be the harshest. They say that captured Americans were tortured for not admitting to the North Vietnamese that they committed the crimes John Kerry stated in his testimony before the Senate. We already do know that a former Vietnamese general has written that many of his soldiers morale came from reports from the U.S. of anti-war protests.
I am not saying these claims are true or not and neither should any other person unless they themselves were in Vietnam and spent those four months with Kerry. But what I do believe is that these heroes should be allowed to have their say. The Kerry campaign, who have been flaunting around and can't seem to say the word "Kerry" without mentioning Vietnam, have been doing all they can to stop these Vietnam vets from having their say. The Kerry puppets have sent letters to every major network demanding they do not air the ad that the swift boat vets have made. Why would they do this if it wasn't true? Why would they be so upset over pure lies?
"It's outrageous!" has been said by liberals at least two hundred times in the past week. But is it? Is it so outrages to let eyewitnesses of Kerry tell us what they saw? Is it any more outrages then Al Gore screaming that President Bush "betrayed his country" and "played on our fears"?
Susan Estrich in her ear wrenching voice pounded over and over again on "Hannity and Colmes" at one of the swift boat veterans about where some of the funding for their organization came from. A Republican in Texas was his answer. But so what? Who cares who funded it. George Soros who said the Bush administration was like the Nazis and the Gestapo funds most of the DNC's ads and the infamous MoveOn.org.
Of the twenty three officers who served with Kerry only ONE is supporting him. One out of twenty three! If that isn't a red flag I don't know what is. But what I find more outrageous than these claims are the things that Kerry did when he came back home. Kerry associated with the likes of Jane Fonda, testified before the Senate that American soldiers were "baby killers", "murderers", that they ravaged the country side, killed live stock for fun, burned villages, and opened fire on civilians. This outrages me. This is pure disgusting hatred for American troops and Kerry's actions put our soldiers in danger. Again, we know for a fact that soldiers were tortured by the North Vietnamese for not admitting to the claims in Kerry's testimony. We also know Kerry is honored in a Vietnamese museum.
I will let you decide if you will believe Kerry, or the over 40 swift boat veterans that served along side Kerry who have had enough.
