 Post subject: Kerry's Swift Boat Redux
Posted: Thu Jul 29, 2004 9:56 am 
Yesterday JFK arrived at the DNC convention center on a water taxi to relive his Vitenam days*.

By his own admission**, the last time he was greeted on the river bank by that many civilians, he opened fire on them.

According to official records, Kerry ran his swift boat aground to chase down a lone wounded sniper and killed him while he was cowering behind a hut. He personally pulled the trigger that ended a man's life, one he could have taken prisoner.

What a hero.

* Kerry actually spent a little over 3 months in a combat zone, during which time he accumulated 3 Purple Hearts and a Silver and Bronze Star. Oh, and he was sure to take along a camera to re-enact his moments of heroism days after they took place.

** Those video clips of him admitting to committing war crimes, including shooting civilians and burning villages, are abundantly available

Really, Kerry was in Vietnam? I never knew that. Why doesn't he talk about it? :wink:
