"Unfit for Command": A Review Posted by McQ

I’ve read “Unfit for Command”. That’s the easy part. Since then I’ve been struggling to find a way to explain why this is so important to many of us out here to those who don’t find it to be important.

We did fine; mostly rain; little breezy, but nothing more than a bad storm.

The kids freaked a little in Wilmington, which was fine by me; they only had 75 mile an hour winds and it convinced them both that they never wanted to stay in a storm.

Barnes & Noble seems to have an ideological problem with any right-leaning books.

A few years ago, I purchased David Schipper's book on the impeachment of Pres Clinton (I forget the name) and the clerk gave me a mildy dirty look when I handed it to her. I looked at her and said "What's the problem?". She said nothing and rang up my purchase without saying anything. I didn't even get a thank you.

If you can, you should go to Borders. They seem to be much better about keeping some of our preferred titles in stock. They also seem to be not as snooty as the clerks at Barnes & Noble.

I'm half way through my copy that I got today.....

Here is the memories it has drudged up for me:

I was in grade school when my Brother and Cousin (Who lived with us) left for Vietnam. Both of them were larger than life to me and I was extremely proud of them. They came home from boot camp two totally different people than the two happy go lucky guys I knew so well.

After a brief couple of weeks of R&R, they were off for Vietnam with a sense of purpose and resolve that would make anybody younger brother proud. Once the tail lights of the Bus were out of site, the prayers and worry began. As a young child I sat up every night to watch the latest updates on the Vietnam War to see if we were winning and pray that my Cousin and Brothers unit did not make the headlines. The casualties seemed to be in the dozens, if not hundreds each and everyday in 1968. When the TV did the final count down before going off air, I would go to bed and pray that my brother and cousin would come home safely.

On Halloween day 1968 a green Ford LTD, that was clearly marked "U.S. Navy", pulled up to our house and two uniformed men got out and headed toward our home. I called for my mother and as the two men started up the steps of our front porch, my mother got on her knees and began crying as she said "Please tell me he is alive"... The man quickly answered "Yes", but he said "He's severely injured". At that point my younger brother and I went to console our mother as we broke out in tears ourselves.

As my mother began to compose herself the sharp dressed Military man called her by my Aunt's last name... It was at that point that we realized that it was my Cousin in the Marines who was injured. My mother immediately began to panic, because my Aunt was due home in just a few minutes. As the D.C Transit Bus stopped at the top of our street and my Aunt exited the Bus, it was obvious to us that she saw the U.S. Navy Staff Car in front of our house. Her steps seemed to be shaky and we all ran to her to comfort her. We did the best we could to assure her that her son was going to be alright, even though we really didn't know.

We all as a family prayed for my Cousin's speedy recovery, but it was 13 months before he would be shipped to Bethesda Naval Hospital and spend another 5 months there recovering from the wounds he got from stepping on a Vietnamese land mine.

My older brother would serve out his 4 year hitch in the Navy without a scratch, but from 1966-1970 we prayed everyday for his safe return. My Cousin recovered from his wounds enough to walk and function somewhat normally after three years of rehab.

For John Kerry to come back from that War and trash my brother and cousin as war criminals is something that boiled my blood in 1971, and it boils my blood today. John Kerry was an opportunist back in 1971, and he is an opportunist today. What bothers me the most is that John Kerry rose to where he is today by spitting on my brother and cousin and now he expects people like me to believe he served this nation honorably and is fit to be the Commander-in-Chief.

Well I got news for John Kerry........ John Kerry is not fit to shine my brother and cousins shoes. He betrayed the Uniform he wore, as well as everyone in his unit, and our country itself.

John Kerry is a TRAITOR!

I will do everything within my power to make sure he doesn't. The antiwar crowd back then made me aware of what it was like to hate!

I hate war, but I also know it must be waged at times. This is something liberals will never understand, they believe that if diplomacy doesn't work to avoid War, we can compromise, if compromise doesn't work to avoid war, we can appease, if appeasement doesn't work, we can pretend the threat to our way of life doesn't exist.

The above way of thinking is what spawned the Evil Tyrants we are fighting today.

"Evil flourishes when good men do nothing" This is the lesson of 9/11, and I thank God often that our President is not blinded by political expediency and understands the threat we face today and is willing to wage this war against those who would murder millions in the name of their false religion.

John Kerry simply doesn't get it, and we need to make it clear to every voter that he doesn't have what it takes to lead in these dangerous times.

I ordered my copy from Amazon tonight - it's supposed to be here by August 23-25. The store is lying .. or they're not carrying the book.

Go get 'em Hildy .. it's about time these book stores get a grip and realize people want to read the truth .. not the left wing drivel. And you're right .. Regnery is not a small publisher. They do Ann Coulter's books and they specialize in conservative books.

What bothers me most about these bookstores is their attitude. Whatever happened to "the customer is always right". Guess they don't believe it anymore.

"I've re read this paragraph a half dozen times, and it still shocks me"

That's exactly how I feel. I'm stunned. This is just blatant BRIBERY to add to his war crimes, treason, etc.

What I don't understand is why Kerry would take such a chance by making such a statement JUST 5 MONTHS AGO. Kerry is a pompous ass .. and he thinks he can do or say anything and get away with it.

THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT CLINTON DID. HE FLAUNTED THE LAW AND THE MEDIA COVERED IT UP. And the Carville's and Lanny Davis' acted the same way about everything that was said about Clinton.

America will never stand still for another Liar in Chief in the White House .. NEVER!!

Hubby & I was quite shocked to see the B&N in Salem NH have the book sitting right out at the registers on Friday night. And a few copies up stairs in the featured section. When we were checking out with book in hand, I remarked to the clerk I was told at another place it wouldn't be out until 9/1. The clerk said that the publisher did a quick first run to help relieve early demands, then he chuckled saying that won't help, all these books will be gone in 24 hours once word get out. Guess this store is republican friendly :-)

Go back to the store and write down a few titles from the "Gay and Lesbian" section of your store. Then write a nice letter to the editor about how it's OK to have "Joys of Gay Sex for Teenagers" on the shelves, but a book about Kerry, written by 60 vets who knew him or about him makes the bookstore staffs uncomfortable.

I was at B&N last night and asked about the book. The mgr very nicely explained how the publisher said Sept 1 and the media said sooner. There were a number of books on a table marked current events or something like that and 8 out of 10 were Bush-Bashing - many I had never heard of. Lotta people trying to make a buck off the hate.

Borders supports Al Gore and the 'Rats. I stopped patronizing them years ago.

I think B&N CEO is a major 'Rat contributor. Someone posted his stuff (contribution record) from the CRP site on here a while ago.

Time to find other booksellers.

-a clerk at Walden's once asked me to make a one dollar donation to feed the poor, since I had just about the exact amount in cash and no more, I said something like .."no, I am not through paying my taxes yet (this was around March), maybe I can afford it after that..." He started in about Bush and tax cuts for the rich. Prior to this I had heard him berating a young female clerk for being too slow. She was waiting on an elderly woman next to me, when I snapped. I told him off in no uncertain terms and taunted him to continue -- needless to say he likes his job and was as polite as he could be much to the amusement of the other two there. (I was firm and insisted that I was an avid Bush supporter and that the tax refund I got went to much needed expences!)

From the article:

The money quote for me, the paragraph that said “this is why” came in the 4th chapter where an incident in March of 2004 involving Admiral Hoffmann and John Kerry. In 2003 Kerry had called Hoffmann to try to get his support in his run for President. Hoffmann was initially enthusiastic as he mistakenly thought the caller was Bob Kerrey, the Navy Medal of Honor winner and former Senator. When he realize the caller was John Kerry, his entire tone changed. He refused to give Kerry his support.

In the ensuing months, “Tour of Duty” was published, in which Kerry savaged Hoffmann.



My thanks to Traumer, Arrowhead1952 and Conspiracy Guy for the concept of the above pic


John Kerry wrote his Review for "Apocalypse Now" on Oct 14, 1979 in the Boston Herald.

Here is the article in JPG format.

Thank you, thank you FreeRepublic.com !


In the BOTTOM JPG, check out the TOP RIGHT paragraph regarding Cambodia .....

"On more than one occasion, I, like Martin Sheen in Apocalypse Now, took my patrol boat into Cambodia. In fact, I remember spending Christmas Eve of 1968 five miles across the Cambodian border being shot at by our South Vietnamese allies who were drunk and celebrating Christmas. The absurdity of almost being killed by our own allies in a country in which President Nixon claimed there were no American troops was very real."

There is the lie. He NEVER WAS in Cambodia. The Swiftboat book Unfit for Command addresses that issue. And Nixon, who had WON election in November 1968, did not take office until January, 1969.

John Kerry is a LIAR! I think mostly Bush haters would vote for Kerry. I say George Bush in a landslide win November 2nd !

John Kerry's "Apocalypse Now" fantasy in Cambodia.
Great scan of 1979 newpaper article.

“On March 15, 2004, Admiral Hoffmann’s telephone rang again. Once again, the caller was John Kerry. Kerry had clinched the Democratic nomination, and he knew that Hoffmann was organizing Swiftees to bring out the truth about him, his exaggerated military record and his antiwar lies that had slandered his fellow veterans. Kerry made the admiral an offer: If you will back off and drop your efforts, I will ensure that my biography, “Tour of Duty”, which I know is unfair to you, will be changed to make it accurate in a revised edition. Here is my secretary’s number – you can get me anytime.
The offer from the Democratic presidential candidate was an attempt to flatter Hoffmann, a warrior who’s coin is not power or wealth, but honor – an honor deeply impugned by Kerry’s book. ... Kerry knew that winning Hoffmann over to his side would thwart the Swiftees’ efforts to discredit him. Hoffmann told Kerry that he and the vast majority of his shipmates could never forgive him for his defamation of our Navy and other US Armed Forces by his slanderous and undocumented accusations of unspeakable atrocities in Vietnam before the US Congress in 1971, his leadership in the VVAW, and his association with the traitorous Jane Fonda and others of her ilk. Surprisingly, Kerry responded by simply saying that he “was expressing his conviction”.

Thank you for posting this A MUST READ FOR ALL!

Thank you for sharing your memories of that day. My heart and prayers go out for you and your family. Your brother and cousin, and the many other soldiers that served and fought for Freedom are the ones that should be honored.

I too am no fan of wars .. I don't think anyone likes wars .. but there are times when it is necessary to help people live in peace ... to defeat the evil that wants to destroy all that is good.

When John Kerry came home, he didn't just speak out against a war he did not like .. he spit on his fellow men that served with honor. He accused them all of the most unspeakable crimes. He dishonored the soldiers that gave their lives so that others could live and breath freedom. He encouraged a nation and the world to treat the soldiers returning home like they were the evil ones .. he told one lie after another about them and he continues to tell lies today.

As I have mentioned, I don't have a lot of memories of back then, but I do remember hearing the stories of how so many men were treated when they came home. I remember telling myself that I would do everything I could to make sure that never happened again

I remember after 9/11 and my then 6yr. old asking me why do some people hate us and why are they burning our flag. I explained to her that there was evil in the world that hated freedom and how there are so many in the military that are giving up so much so that we all could live in a free world. I also told her and my other daughter that whenever they saw a person in the military, a person from the police department or from the fire department.. to go up and thank them for keeping them safe .. that they were the true Hero's.

Bill Clinton was sure in touch! Just not in the right way!

But, seriously, folks-- They've been rather strange, too. Dukakis and Gore were emotionless robots. Clinton is a Sociopath. Kerry is aloof. They're the party of wierdos!

Good political cartooning requires satire (lampoon), humor and a style of artistic rendition that buttresses the idea being conveyed all wrapped in truth... That, to me is wit... Eddy's cartooning lacks greatly in humor and artistic rendering... though she gets some credit for lampooning and the conveyance of truth.

Linda Eddy's Iowa Cartoons.   Now that I know what your referring to and of course, entitled to your opinion.
I along with many others on FR don't have a problem understanding their meaning.   Most, if not all of her drawings are about current events, or tied to the latest political happenings.   All cartoonists have a definitive style or signature.   In comparing her work with other political cartoonists, she has a very clean modern and interesting approach to her artwork.   Vivid and full of life.   I like it.

I believe the question, however was one of wit. Simply labeling Kerry as a sap using thought bubbles to identify her characters and explain her cartoon's satirical message hardly qualifies her efforts as witty... but to each his own...

Thank you for that perspective. What a moving account. I can tell that your family was very close, and that this war affected you all in many ways. It angers me to no end to think of what that TRAITOR did to heroes like your brother and your cousin, so I can only imagine the anger that you feel. Thanks again for sharing.

Your welcome my friend, I harbor a deep resentment for those who spat on our Veterans during and after the Vietnam War.

IMHO the left have repeatedly sought to undermine any and every Military action this country has undertaken. Their actions have done little to bring about peace, instead their actions have guaranteed the need for future wars.

When evil is not confronted it spreads...This is something liberals will never understand. They believe negotiating with evil can lead to peace. Yet the lessons of history have shown that all negotiating with evil does is postpone the confrontation and allow evil to grow, and as a result, the cost in human life to fight evil grows as well.

I believe in my heart that freedom is a God given right, and all those who deny their people of it will eventually fall. We are freedom's defender, and I think it's a title to be very proud of
