Kerry Lied Rally


To the Editor, Phila. Inquirer:
When John Kerry returned from Vietnam, he told Congress and all America that all Vietnam veterans were murders, rapists, and psychological cripples, who had ravaged Vietnam like Genghis Khan's Mongol hordes. Rather than engage in principled opposition to the war, he met repeatedly with the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese. Then he echoed the Soviet Union's propaganda lies about his fellow veterans, even admitting to having committed war crimes himself.

John Kerry knew he was lying when he abused his position as a decorated Navy officer to help the Communists win where it mattered, with an assault on America's soul and on the honor of America's soldiers.

John Kerry knows today that he was lying, but he has never apologized. Instead he claims his four months as a war criminal in Vietnam qualifies him to be president. He parades his "band of brothers", and forgets the millions of Vietnam vets that he likened to a band of Mongols. He used us once, to start his political career, and he thinks we should let ourselves be used again so he can be president.

That is why I am not voting for John Kerry, and why I am going to the Vietnam Veterans for Truth rally in Washington, D.C. this Sunday.

All are welcome. For more information, go to http://www.kerrylied.com.

Navy checking Kerry's awards


The Navy is reviewing Kerry awards . The action is taken in response
to a request by Judicial Watch, a bi-partisan lobby group, for a full inquiry.
In an angry statement from the Kerry campaign headquarters, Michael Meehan, Mr. Kerry's senior adviser, condemned the navy probe as an expensive waste of the Pentagon's resources.

"The facts are clear," said Mr. Meehan. "The Navy awarded John Kerry the Silver Star, a Bronze Star with Combat V, and three Purple Hearts. This is a waste of taxpayers' dollars and the Pentagon's time, especially during wartime."
Especially after they lost all that time digging through George Bush’s National Guard attendance records.

Not to worry. AP is checking Dubya's Guard attendance. Is this a coincidence or a distraction?

Chirac tried to mislead us out of war

Remember the Niger uranium that Bush and Blair “lied about”? The people who made the charge of lying kept pointing to proof that turned out to be forged. Britain and the US allowed the forgeries, but maintained that there was an independent basis for the claim that Iraq had tried to buy uranium in Africa.

Now the Telegraph reports that Italy blames France for Niger uranium claim. Italy charges that France (1) planted the forgeries and (2) for a while told the US that Iraq had tried to buy uranium. The article also says the French may have been behind the independent confirmation that British MI6 cited. What the article doesn’t say is that US ambassador and temporary CIA investigator Joseph Wilson discovered that the Iraqis had made approaches to buy Niger uranium.

It is no surprise that information came from the French. They control Niger’s uranium mines. What is new is that the French deliberately planted what they thought was false information, in the hope that it would collapse under the UK and US and discredit their justification for attacking Iraq.

In other words, Jacques Chirac tried to mislead us out of removing Saddam. And Kerry thinks he could have done better with these people?

I have some ideas for posts about Kerry, but it may all be moot.
