Leggo My War Record

And the vituperation continues as Senator John F. Kerry, D-France, accuses President Bush of backing groups that attack his military record.

“Well, if he wants to have a debate about our service in Vietnam, here is my
answer: Bring it on,”


I have yet to hear The President say anything about Kerry's fictitious war record. Of the two parties, it's always Kerry and his sycophants that are harping on the Viet Nam war.

Of course there is a certain veteran's group that has been exposing Kerry for the fraud that he is. But that is hardly the same as the Bush campaign making such accusations. Besides, if Kerry is going to use his rather dubious war record as his platform, his fellow veterans should be allowed to rebut that record.

After all, his war record includes accusing the American soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines who served in Viet Nam of committing war crimes and atrocities on a grand scale. That record also includes aiding and abetting an enemy during a time of armed conflict, meeting and dealing with the enemy, and lying about certain actions that he participated in and places where these actions occured. It might, just might, even include conspiracy to assassinate an elected official.

Is it not right to scrutinize such accusations? Especially since they involve a man who is running for the highest office in the land?

Compared to the Anything-But-Bush credo of Moveon.org, the SwiftVets for Truth are veritable angels. Their only interest is in exposing Kerry for the man he is, a spoiled, incompetent man who put in for decorations he didn't deserve and who rose in political life by stepping on the backs of veterans who he has dragged through the mud.
