Another Kerry Email: "We Are the Troops" (Barf)
John Kerry Email ^ | 9/12/06 | John Kerry

Posted on 09/12/2006 12:48:07 PM PDT by ChuckShick

Dear Friend,

I remember when I was back home from Vietnam and veterans were speaking out against the Vietnam war policy, someone yelled at the vets: "You should support the troops." One of those veterans said simply: "Lady, we are the troops."

With a war in Iraq gone horribly wrong and a Republican attack machine determined to smear those who speak out, there's nothing more important this fall than electing veterans to Congress who can speak out about Iraq with a special moral authority.

And man, do we need them. Recently, John "Randy" Kuhl, a Republican incumbent House member from New York, returned from a visit to Iraq. He reported that things were going well. In fact, he says he almost forgot he was in a war zone.

I can't tell you whether that hard-to-believe comment reflects his disconnect with reality or his refusal to level with the people he represents. But, I can tell you this: No one who knows what it really means to be in a war zone would talk like that.

If you act now to support Eric Massa, the 24-year Navy veteran running against Kuhl, there will be one less Congressman in Washington next year who blindly supports the failed Republican policy in Iraq.

Eric served in Desert Storm, Bosnia and Beirut. And he's telling people the truth about Iraq -- that there is no purely military solution to the problems there. He, three other proud veterans I'll tell you about in a moment, and VoteVets.org, a political action committee founded to support candidates like them, need your help right now.

Was "support the troops" a common expression back then?
I bet it wasn't. I think that started with the gulf war.

I wouldnt believe Kerry if he said the sky was blue.
He was probably standing on Mars when he said it.

Then why do you constantly and viciously attack, attack, attack every statement the President makes?

JEffin'K, you are a liar and an @$$hole.

And thanks to these "troops" we lost the war, Saigon fell and 2 million Cambodians were exterminated....oh then we find out 30 years later that some of these "troops" never served!

you forgot the rest...

I tried running for congress as a war hero. Nevermind I didn't live in the district( though I rented an apartment there just so I could run there). Nevermind that people had had enough of Viet Nam...when I lost, it suddenly dawned on me, that I could get more exposure if I was a war hero against the bad war...Nixon's war. I was a hero in the good war.. LBJ's war....HEY WAKE UP !

Coming from someone who collaborated with the enemy while his brothers were still in harms way, that means a lot.

Hey dufus, just what the hell did you just say? Whom have Republicans smear. You guys invented smear, hate our country and hope for death to our military so your pole numbers will go up.

No doubt a John Kerry supporter.

plus the time he spent "off shore" board ship, orientation for him was "who's the medic with the most band aids" and what officer has the most blank "I'm a hero forms", and of course the reg's in regards to "get me the hell outta here forms"

Unfortunately "Spit on the Troops" was more common then
"Support The Troops" during the rotten hippie-freelove and drugs era of the 1960's.

I pray to God our fighting men and women now never go through that at all or at least not to the degree that the returning Vietnam Vets had to.

Man, who comes up with this stuff for these guys? "War gone wrong...quagmire...Republican attack machine...smear the brave dissenters...question my patriotism..." I've heard parrots sound more convincing. Time for somebody without a political tin ear to yell "Re-write!" but there isn't anyone left like that in the Democratic party.

I agree with that. But we are trying for a political solution; an Iraq with a new constitution and a fairly elected government. When they are up on their feet we are out.

If the Iraqis can't make it work; it's civil war time. Grab your guns and oilfields! - Tom

John Kerry: "Surrender, grovelling, and all-around snivelling have worked pretty well for me so far in life, and I don't see why I should change my ways now."

Reporter: "But you lost your race for the Presidency....."

Kerry: "Bush stole Ohio, and besides, Teresa promised me a bigger alliance if I try again and win, and anyway everyone knows that Dick Cheney is a big meanie!"

[Kerry walking away] "Whew, glad that's over with, where's my Botox injection?"
