Regarding John Kerry

An email I received today........


Being from Mass. originally, I am very familiar with John Kerry the Politician. It's easy to tell when he is lying, because his mouth is open! I doubt if the truth will ever come out about his coziness with the contractors who worked on the Big Dig project, but suffice to say that the American taxpayers made a lot of people in Boston rich through cost overruns, payoffs and downright theft that at least Mr. Kerry turned a blind eye to, but more than likely was complicit in so his own pockets would be filled as well.

That is why I have decided that this message needs to be read by everyone that may be tempted to be swayed Kerry's way. It points up what a truly despicable person he is.

Subject: Regarding John Kerry

Hanoi John
My own husband, Neal, came back from proudly serving his country in Viet Nam to be spit upon by war protesters when he got off the plane in Los Angeles. The protesters called him a baby killer, thanks to the rubbish being fed to the American public by people like John Kerry. The following came to me from a friend in North Dakota. It's worth the time to read.

Every veteran and Veterans group I know is condemning this 4-month phony for what he has done. The saddest part of this is that he has defamed the name of the 58K names on that black wall in Washington, D.C. Telling the world that they were rapists and murderers. They can't defend themselves. We, the survivors, have to do it for them. The following is by Don Bendell, best selling author, and retired Special Forces Officer.

John Kerry is indeed a traitor - a traitor to everything for which every American Vet has ever fought and everything for which America stands. To allow this sorry excuse for a man - a false warrior who hides behind patriotism in order to promote his own self-aggrandizement, to steal the Presidency, would be a tragedy of Shakespearean proportions for the USA. So spread the truth about him to everyone you know. The media is pussyfooting all around the truth about him, so the internet is the best way of doing so. ..AND GET REGISTERED TO VOTE!!!

Retired Green Beret addresses John Kerry - An Open Letter to John Kerry:

My wife had rotator cuff surgery earlier this year, and the recovery is terribly painful. Then, she developed a staph-epi infection, and they had to cut the same scar open and operate on her again. Just thinking about the pain and anxiety of facing that painful surgery a second time in the same wound, makes me cringe. That experience, however, pales in comparison to what I am going through right now, in my heart.

The old hurts are surfacing and the feelings of betrayal by fellow citizens, and their leader stirring them up, are breaking my heart again. I am being cut in the same scar. How did we who served in Vietnam suddenly become cold-blooded killers, torturers, and rapists, of the ilk of the Nazi SS or the Taliban? Most of us were American soldiers who grew up idolizing John Wayne, Roy Rogers, and all the other heroes. That was why I volunteered. But for political expediency, John Kerry has rewritten history, again. After spending only four months in the country of Vietnam, John Kerry testified before Congress in 1971 with these exact words about incidents he supposedly witnessed or heard about from other vets:

"They personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blew up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam."

I was a green beret officer who volunteered for duty in Vietnam and fought in the thick of it in 1968 and 1969 on a Special Forces A-team on the Ho Chi Minh Trail, just for starters. We were the elite. We saw the most action. Everybody in the world knows that. But we did not just kill the enemy, we built a church, a school, treated illnesses, passed out soap, food, and clothing, and had fun and loving interaction with the indigenous people of Vietnam, just like our boys did in Normandy, Baghdad, Saigon, and everywhere American soldiers ever served.

We all gave away our candy bars and rations to kids. Our hearts to oppressed people all over the globe. My children and grandchildren could read your words, and think those horrendous things about me, Mr. Kerry. You are a bold-faced, unprincipled liar, and a disgrace, and you have dishonored me and all my fellow Vietnam veterans. Sure, there were a couple bad-apples, but I saw none, and I saw it all, and if I did, as an army officer, it was my obligation to stop it, or at the very least report it. Why is there not a single record anywhere of you ever reporting any incidents like this or having the perpetrators arrested? The answer is simple. You are a liar. Your medals and mine are not a free pass for a lifetime, Senator Kerry, to bypass character, integrity, and morality. I earn my green beret over and over daily in all aspects of my life.

Eight National Guard green berets, and other National Guard soldiers, have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, and you totally dishonored their widows and families by lumping National Guard service in with being a draft-dodger, conscientious objector, and deserter, just so you can try to sabotage the patriotism of our President who proudly served as an Air National Guard jet pilot.

I have a son earning his green beret at Fort Bragg right now, and his wife serves honorably in the Air National Guard, just like President Bush did, and I am as proud of her as I am my son. I volunteered for Vietnam and have no problem whatsoever with President Bush being our Commander-In-Chief. In fact, I am proud of him as our leader. You personally derailed the Vietnam Human Rights Bill, HR2883, in 2001, after it had passed the House by a 411 to 1 vote, and thousands of pro-American Montagnard tribespeople in Vietnam died since then who could have been saved, by you.

Earlier, as Chair of the Senate Select Committee on MIA/POW Affairs, you personally quashed the efforts of any and all veterans to report sightings of living POW's, when you held those reins in Congress. You have fought tooth and nail to push for the US to normalize relations with North Vietnam for years. Why, Mr. Kerry? Simple, your first cousin C. Stewart Forbes, CEO, of Colliers International, recently signed a contract with Hanoi, worth BILLIONS of dollars for Collier's International to become the exclusive real estate representative for the country of Vietnam. Now that it works for you, you beat your chest about your Vietnam service, but to me, you are a phony, opportunistic, hypocrite. You are one of those politicians that is like a fertilizer machine: all that comes out of you is horse manure, and you are spreading it everywhere. Medals do not make a man. Morals do.
