The thing that really bothers me about Kerry and Vietnam - he gets out early on a technicality (three wounds/purple hearts with only one day off...), comes back and joins Hanoi Jane. Then proceeds to block efforts to get our POW/KIA home from North Vietnam which leaves the POWs there to die - all so his cousin, of Colliers International could rake in some major bucks with real estate transactions with that very same North Vietnam...
Why do you think he won't let you see his Military service or medical records... Dare to speculate?
Now who does that sound like? But you don't want to remember that.
I can back up all the facts stated above - most of them were said by Kerry himself.
Now my speculation - Kerry idolized the Kennedys and was in good with them - How do you think he got away with what he did and was able to move up the political ladder so quickly? It sure wasn't because of his exemplary work - he was never there.
We have been down this road before. I tried to get you to explain why you felt Kerry prevented POWs from coming home, and you cited nothing but innuendo and opinions from other sources that were clear distortions. There is no evidence that you cited last time to lend any credibility to the claim Kerry blocked any POWs or MIAs from getting home. There is plenty of evidence he prevented more POWs from being added to the ones that already existed at the end of the war, by helping end it as soon as it was ended.
And the real estate deal you are referencing took place over 20 years after the Vietnam War ended, which also lends no credence to your claim. You never cited any evidence there was anything "fishy" about the deal, no other businesses complained, and no investigations by any international agencies were initiated. And no one waits 20 years for an investment to mature these days. Companies that do that don't exist when the time comes to cash in.
Kerry got wounded because he went there. The President skipped out with his connections, which are largely to blame for his present position. A much clearer and obvious trail of special favors, from being able to skip the draft, dodge duty in the National Guard, run a few businesses into the ground, become a State Governor, and then President. How come that doesn't offend you?
If you have new information, let it fly. Jim
