Kerry's Positive Campaign - Another group of Vietnam vets who support John Kerry for president are conveying Kerry's optimistic message of hope and...okay...maybe not. They're just bashing Bush and accusing him of being behind the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth ads. One outraged veteran says:
"We had very serious disagreements among ourselves about the war, but the creed was that we never spoke ill of another veteran."Oh, you mean like this?
"They told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, tape 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 Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the country side 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."At least veterans seem to be finally seeing through Kerry's facade. The veteran vote was 50-50 just after the convention. Bush now has an 18-point lead among those who served in the military, according to a post in the Kerry Spot.
By the way, when is the press going to report the fact that the only folks questioning people's patriotism support John F. Kerry?
