John Kerry: Lying about Vietnam Vets to make their lives better!

Well, whaddya know. Apparently, accusing his fellow Vietnam war vets of raping, murdering, electrocuting, dismembering, torturing, mutilating, etc., innocent civilians was all because he just cared so gosh darn much. He wanted to bring about a policy change, darn it, and smearing his fellow soldiers was the best way to do it.

It's just too bad that the rest of us idiots aren't as learned as Jawn Carry is and couldn't understand what he was trying to do.

From Kerry's website:
John Kerry entered public life because of a burning desire to help people. Having seen bad decisions made in Washington that put too many people at risk in combat, he was determined to do better. Coming back from the Vietnam War, where he served two tours of duty and was highly decorated for bravery, he felt a responsibility to help his buddies still in Vietnam and all of the other servicemen there by working to bring about a change in policy in what was a war gone wrong.

Emphasis mine, of course.

Um... explain to me how blatantly lying about "his buddies" improved their situation in Vietnam, because I'm not seeing it. Frankly, John Kerry and his Winter Soldier friends could probably be charged with treason, because his actions stateside surely aided and emboldened the enemy.

And, if I'm correct, didn't Kerry serve one tour of duty in Vietnam? Maybe I'm wrong here, but if memory serves me right, he was only in Vietnam once.

I guess when John Kerry, and liberals like him (hello, Barack Obama) smear you, lie about you, and deride you, you should just remind yourself that likely, it's for your own good. They know better than you do. There's a plan, people. We're just too gosh darn stoopid to know what it is, so we should just trust in their infinite wisdom. Right?

Chronologically J.F'ng Kerry only spent one tour in 'Nam. BUT his tour was so full of adventure and raids against Cambodian soldiers celebrating Christmas- that his magic hat seperated it into two seperate tours.

1968 to 1970 = two tours in Vietnam.

You people slay me. At least Kerry showed up, unlike some politicians.

You folks yell about morality and honesty, but the minute someone says something that doesn't agree with your "America can do no wrong" idea masquerading as a philosophy, you trash them as a liar and traitor.

What if what Kerry said is true? Then what? There's no other evidence to speak except for testimony.

When we allow torture, we become our enemies and betray the values upon which America was built.

I hear over and over that Kerry accused American soldiers of horrible acts. Here is the actual quote:
"I would like to talk on behalf of all those veterans and say that several months ago in Detroit we had an investigation at which over 150 honorably discharged, and many very highly decorated, veterans testified to war crimes committed in Southeast Asia. These were not isolated incidents but crimes committed on a day-to-day basis with the full awareness of officers at all levels of command. It is impossible to describe to you exactly what did happen in Detroit - the emotions in the room and the feelings of the men who were reliving their experiences in Vietnam. They relived the absolute horror of what this country, in a sense, made them do. They told stories that at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Ghengis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country."

If he gets hammered for believing these claims then what do you do about the 150 vets who actually said they did those things? I did not serve but worked with a few people that would occasionally talk about their experience there and at least half of them told disturbing stories that confirm what these vets said. The problem is not the majority of servicemen who served honorably, it is the denial by people like you who want to pretend that sort of thing did not happen and that the brass did not know about it. The Swifties have been discredited so many times I get nauseated when I hear their stories trotted out again. Critisize Kerry for his policies but get off the Jane Fonda bandwagon.
