John Kerry: 34 Years Later, New False Allegations of Barbary Against U.S. Troops
This week, John Kerry--the haughty, French-looking junior senator from Massachusetts who claims few successes beyond marrying wealthy women--lodged war crime accusations against U.S. troops in Iraq bearing little difference from the slandering he delivered his former comrades in 1971.
"They told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped 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 Jengiss [sic] Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam..."
All of this was one big pack of lies. Later, John Kerry would admit he never witnessed or had any other firsthand knowledge of any war crimes committed in Vietnam.
John Kerry, 2005:
"I don't agree with that. But I think what we need to do is recognize what we all agree on, which is, you've got to begin to set benchmarks for accomplishment; you've got to begin to transfer authority to the Iraqis, and there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, uh-uh-uh, you know, women, breaking sort of the customs of the -- of -- of -- of -- historical customs, religious customs, whether you like it or not. Iraqis should be doing that. And after all of these two and a half years, with all of the talk of 210,000 people trained, there just is no excuse for not transferring more of that authority."
Thirty-four years have done nothing to John Kerry's truthfulness regarding the conduct of American soldiers in war.
