Kerry’s record with military questionable

All this talk about Kerry being asupporter of themilitary is unfounded, especially when he aligns himself with Jane “The Traitor” Fonda.I commend Kerry for his service in the Vietnam War, but his service does not excuse his actions when he returned home.Yes, he led protests, but what you don’t hear is when these soldiers that were returning home, Kerry andVVAW (a pro-communist group)were the ones calling them “baby-killers” and accusingtheir brothers-in-arms of war crimes against the “innocent” North Vietnamese.
He marched down streets with the North Vietnamese flag at the same time they were holding the American Flag upside down. Kerry wrote a book called the “New Soldier” in which the cover has people making a mockery of Iwo Jimaand raising the flag American flag upside down.He is despised by so manyVietnamvets that there is a group that is against him: Vietnam VeteransAgainst John Kerry. He did much more than this; therejust isn’t enoughroom to put it all.Kerry claims to be a staunch supporter of the military while at the same time voting against weapons that hassavedmilitary lives, ie. theF-14, F-15 and Tomahawkmissiles, to name a few.
I hope President Bush wins this upcoming election, but if a Democrat was to win there are betterchoices than Kerry, like Joe Lieberman. With a little research you can find out that Kerry met with Liu Chaoying and aided in the selling of U.S. military intelligence during the Clinton administration.
Bush’s AWOL urban legend has also been proven to be nothing but a myth. The Times reports that the General who accused him of being AWOL has backed away from his story and that The Globe alsoflubbedthe story. After a seven- month gap Bush appeared for duty.
What most people don’t hear is that the Texas National Guard allows guard members to miss duty as long as they make it up in the same quarter, and Bush does so. Take a poll of military personnel and you will get an overwhelming majority who are against him. Kerry isjust as left asHoward Dean. Neitherwould make good presidents.
