KERRY (D-MA) Kills Human Rights
WASHINGTON - Despite growing calls from human rights groups, US Army Special Forces veterans, and pleas from homeless refugees fleeing genocide Senate JOHN KERRY (D-MA) has successfully stalled the Vietnam Human Rights Act (Senate Bill HR-2833) for over half a year.
...The stalled Bill would have sanctioned the communist Democratic Republic of Vietnam (DRV) against further racially based sterilization, terrrorism and genocide of the Christain hilltribe Degar peoples living in the Central Highlands region of the country.
...Why is Senator KERRY stalling this vital human rights legislation?
...The Degar tribes people, commonly known to westerners as the -MONTAGNARDS-, are ethnically unrelated to the Vietnamese. The Central Highlands region was never a traditional part of Vietnam. The region has been the home of the Degar tribes for at least a ..1,000.. years.
...With HR-2833 stalled by JOHN KERRY of Massachussetts, the DRV is free to continue without restriction its ethinic cleansing of the Degar Christains in the Central Highlands region in an attempt to gain control of the Degar land and resources.
...As recently as 1970 there were an estimated ..3,000,000.. Montagnards in various tribes living in the region but as a result of Vietnam's ongoing compaign of ethnic terror and extermination, the total population of Montagnards is now ...BELOW 650,000...!!!
...Nearly two thirds of the Montagnards have died in only 32 years, including more than half the male population. This is undisguised genocide.
...This is why HR-2833 was passed without delay through the House of Representatives last summer by a margin of 411 to 1 to bring an immediate halt to this tragic situation. The Bill was then rushed to the Senate where immediate passage was expected due to the urgency of the current situation.
...Then JOHN KERRY entered the picture and people kept dying.
...For over 7 months now, since early September 2001 Senator JOHN KERRY of Massachussetts has deliberately thwarted all attempts to bring HR-2833 to the floor for a vote.
...KERRY deliberate sabotage of the most urgent human rights legislation since the 1950's has caused grave concern in the human rights community, especially because there is no explanation for his position and all attempts to contact the Senator on this issue have been ignored by his office.
...JOHN KERRY needs to do some explaining before this gets worse.
...The Daily Catholic is listing JOHN KERRY as a .."HEROD's HERO".. for having the second worst human rights record in the US Congress.
...A Montagnard source informed us it was common knowledge in the mid-1970's Degar community that there were serious business dealings involving KERRY and the late Secretary of Commerce RON BROWN with the new incoming communist DRV government. Windfall profits of more than ..$500,000.. each for both RON BROWN and JOHN KERRY were reported by this source. A source outside the Degar community relates that KERRY has proposed future business dealings with the communist Democratic Republic of Vietnam.
...Several sources within the US military recall how JOHN KERRY was given a questionable medal for heroism for shooting a man who was already dead or dying in exchange for KERRY's recommending a paper medal in return for another Navy 'hero' who was anxious to get a decoration before his tour was over.
...Has Senator JOHN KERRY been pressured by the DRV to kill or stall Bill HR-2833 in exchange for silence and future favors? Is this why Senator KERRY is so eager to grant Most Favored Nation (MFN) trade status for the DRV?
...KERRY's inaction on HR-2833 allows the DRV's genocide and sterilization programs in the Central Highlands region to continue today. Is Senator KERRY going to stall HR-2833 until the region is under complete control of the Vietnamese, all the Degar Montagnard peoples driven out or killed, before KERRY allows the Vietnam Human Rights onto the Senate floor for a vote?

And we don't want to make "Communist" an ugly word, since the Communist Chinese are so helpful to Ambitious Democrats. Just what do the Chinese want from our Democrats anyway???
...That's just ..OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!!
I wish I could say something positive about this. I think ultimately there may also be land and coffee tied up in this business. The communists have long seen the tourism value of their ethnic "hill tribes". And I can't help but wonder why christianity should pose such a problem "westward" as these days the old "Redball" is dotted unabashedly with Christian churches at least from Quang Ngai well up into the north toward Vinh.
Fear of propoganda may be a factor too, where groups related to US Special Forces veterans have aimed powerful radio transmitters broadcasting Christian programming from the Philippenes specifically directed at Montangard groups. Though Nong Duc Manh came to the Party General Secretaryship as a "reformer", it really seems sad that he can't see that it would benefit Vietnam so much more to put that philosophy into practice.
The History Channel program also told that most of the Montagnards who came to the States settled near Ft Bragg. If only we could count on the Afghanis to be as loyal, we'd have the remaining alQuaeda by the short ones in a hurry.

...With nearly 3,000,000 Christain Degars losing their lives in the Central Highlands of a once Free South Vietnam after the Communists from the North took control 27 years ago...
...Senator KERRY's (D) Office finally returned my call of weeks ago.
...A very nice sounding ..KATE RHUDY..
...@ 202 224-2742...
...stated to me that the reason Senator KERRY (D) will continue holding up HR-2833 from going to the Senate Floor for a vote to Sanction Communist Vietnam for the Death of the Degar, with Senator McCAIN (R) in complete agreement with him, is because "Engagement" with Communist Vietnam is better for the people of Vietnam in the long run.
...I asked her how the Communist Vietnamese eliminating nearly 3,000,000 Christain Degars is "Better" for them...?
...Would Senator KERRY (D) be acting the same way about this if it were all happening to Christains in Central California, rather than Central South Vietnam...?
...Why don't we let the ..KERRY/McCAIN.. Team know just how we feel about this "Little" Number of theirs...???
This is kinda hard to figure. A couple of years ago there were American and French tourists ranging all over these areas, as the SRV government was touting its "Hill Tribes" as obviously lucrative to that industry.
I still sense the real issue is coffee, as these are some of the best growing regions in the country and region, and the ethnic Vietnamese (and commie government) want as much of that trade as they can get.
But all of the world's commie states have also publically declared their support for their "revolutionary" brethren in the so-called palestinian intifada too, and there could be some reflections of that in this.
Damned commies want to have it both ways. Big surprise, eh?
His 4 books:
Valley Of Tears
are all about fighting with the Montagnards.
Most are available on the web.
Thanks for the ping. At least the Senators are honest, whats the death of a few rustic Christians when theres money to be made.
Re your second point, let the Senators know how many Christians in California are we talking about, whats the racial composition, and who is donating to who and what are the contributions looking forward, and theyll get back to you.
CA is a long way from Mass, close to Az, so the "Senator Vets" may split on that one.
I have an acquaintance involved with tourism to the "hill tribes" in Thailand, Hmong I think, though they import them from other areas, Cambodia I think. Not all that lucrative, not nearly enough to bid on a Senator.
Because Mrs. Heinz won't ease up on her jerk chain?
