Skip to comments.Vets refuse to forgive Kerry for antiwar acts

"If I got three Purple Hearts for three scratches, I'd be embarrassed," said Ted Sampley, who fought in Vietnam and publishes U.S. Veteran Dispatch. He remembers soldiers turning away awards for minor injuries.
Mr. Kerry has said none of his Purple Heart injuries, only one of which removed him from the field for two days, was critical.
After his third Purple Heart, Mr. Kerry requested and was granted permission to return to the United States to work behind a desk in New York. Even while still a Navy man, he began traveling to antiwar rallies with leading war protesters such as Adam Walinsky, a former speechwriter for Robert F. Kennedy.
Mr. Walinsky recalled that Mr. Kerry flew him around the state of New York for several Vietnam Moratorium protests in October 1969.
"He was a guy who had been in the war," he said. "We spent a lot of time talking about the campaign, the presidential campaign and the Vietnam War."
Mr. Kerry has said he did not take part in the protests, but was intrigued by Mr. Walinsky's views about the war. The two men stayed in contact and "became reasonably good friends," Mr. Walinsky said.
Others were shocked by the Naval officer's association with the antiwar movement.
"He gets this cushy job in his hometown, goes around protesting the war, then asks to get out six months early," Mr. Sampley said. "What regulations were busted when Kerry as a Naval officer and still on the payroll was flying around protesting the war? And who had to stand in and fight for John Kerry after he left six months early?"

Some more of John "Never met a Commie I didn't like" Kerry.
You put me on without my permission,which is why I asked you to remove me.Now,I'm willinmg to give it a try.I may opt out again,but what the hey...let's give it a try. :-)
Kerry gave a hollow comment on the U.S. Losses in Iraq.
Running concurrent with this yesterday was a CNN[Finally....duh!]..finally gave coverage to Irans obvious Evil work in Iraq.
so ya....captured Iranian RPG'S..AK-47's MG's arty..etc.
still in crates...with *Farsi script on them.
Iran has been on a murder spree in Iraq,
John Kerry's answer ...is that the war on Terror could be addressed more sensitively.
God forbid this traitor gets into the Whitehouse....Iran will turn Iraq into some Caliph...Black Flags of the Mahdi ....killing fields.
Well - sorry, what else can I say. I only did that initially who were interested in the same thing. I didn't realize I NEEDED permission who to talk to you!
Not to fret; I won't add you. Wouldn't want you to give something new a try! LOL!!
Tells me a whole lot about YOU though, nopardons. Ya know what, I recall, most folks around here didn't appreciate you so much before. When you high-toughted how well you knew Martha Stewart walking in her circles; eh?
Nopardons, you and me don't walk along the same path.
It really IS bad form here,to just add people to a ping list,without asking them first/having them ask to be put on it.And as I recall,you used to ping to threads that my friends would ping me to first/or that I wasn't interested in.
But your wee tantrum proves what YOU are...so yes,by all means leave me off YOUR ping list and don't you ever again smarmily infer that I don't know what's what because the "eminent" JLO hasn't pinged me to threads.Satisfied with your wee self now,I hope. ;^)
Most people here welcome my knowledge about Martha.The ones who took exception,were her drooling sycophants.And IF you have decided to not like me,because I happen to know things others don't and share that knowledge,then no,dear,WE "don't walk the same path" at all;I am gracious and civil ...unlike you.

That's what gave you away, LOL!
Either get help,or just stop this now...you're not helping matters and trying to highjack this thread is doing you no good either.
Keep digging,some of the info you've already turned up is very good,very good indeed.Thanks for ddoing the scut work. :-)
Too bad you showed your true self, eh?
Now,we are at the end of this......your baiting and flames are a distraction to others and ruining an interesting thread.I'll answer you no more.
Man, you are 1K at least worse than Stewart. I can't believe it.

Excellent! I love those.
