    The US secretary of state has said that President Bashar al-Assad has one week to hand over his entire stock of chemical weapons to avoid a military attack, but said he had no expectation that the Syrian leader would comply. John Kerry also said he had no doubt that Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack in east Damascus on 21 August, saying that only three people are responsible for the chemical weapons inside Syria – Assad himself, one of his brothers and a senior general. He said the entire US intelligence commnity was united in believing Assad was...

    The State Department is hitting back at what it calls false accusations that Russian President Vladimir Putin made about Secretary of State John Kerry. Jen Psaki is a department spokeswoman. She says Kerry is a decorated combat veteran of the Vietnam war and has had more than words aimed at him. Psaki says Kerry is not losing sleep because of Putin's quote preposterous comment that was based on an inaccurate rendering of what Kerry said.

    From John Kerry’s statement before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on April 22, 1971, in which he criticized the Vietnam War. Submitted without comment: “We veterans can only look with amazement on the fact that this country has been unable to see there is absolutely no difference between ground troops and a helicopter crew, and yet people have accepted a differentiation fed them by the Administration. No ground troops are in Laos, so it is all right to kill Laotians by remote control. […] SNIP

    I don't care if John F. Kerry threw his medals -- or ribbons -- or ribbons and medals -- over a fence in Washington to protest the Vietnam War 33 years ago. What matters more to me is Kerry's response now to questions about what he did back then. I am not impressed. I watched ABC newsman Charlie Gibson interview Kerry on "Good Morning America" this morning. Ignoring the subject matter -- whether Kerry tossed his ribbons or his medals at a 1971 anti-war protest -- I gathered the following: -- Kerry is a man who speaks before he listens....

    Let's see if I can kick this off. During the promo at the beginning of the show, where he was standing by live in West Virginia, and throughout the interview itself, Kerry tried hard to keep this huge "what me worry?" smile plastered on his face. He coupled it with numerous condescending head shakes that seemed to imply "these poor benighted fools who so miserably misunderstand the greatness that is John Kerry."

    On Iraq and many other key foreign policy issues -- such as the Israeli- Palestinian dispute -- what's more notable about the 2004 campaign is how much the two men appear to agree. "In effect, the Kerry position is just, 'We're going to do a more efficient job of running Iraq than this administration.' " "Kerry represents a more traditional internationalist who is certainly interested in maintaining U.S. power in the world but is not prepared to use the kind of ruthless military attack that has come to characterize Bush's drive toward empire," Bennis said.

    Kerry's Anti-War Past Is a Delicate Issue in Campaign By DAVID M. HALBFINGER, The New York Times When questions were raised last month about whether a 27-year-old John Kerry had attended a Kansas City meeting of Vietnam Veterans Against the War where the assassination of senators was discussed, the Kerry presidential campaign went into action. It accepted the resignation of a campaign volunteer in Florida, Scott Camil, the member of the antiwar group who raised the idea in November 1971 of killing politicians who backed the war. The campaign pressed other veterans who were in Kansas City, Mo., 33 years...

    <p>WASHINGTON -- In a question-and-answer session before a Senate committee in 1971, John F. Kerry, who was a leading antiwar activist at the time, asserted that 200,000 Vietnamese per year were being "murdered by the United States of America" and said he had gone to the Paris and "talked with both delegations at the peace talks" and met with communist representatives.</p>

    axis of logic ^ | 3/10/04 | Tom Hayden
    I was digging into the batter's box one Saturday morning in San Pedro a couple of years ago when the catcher behind me muttered, "I'm a Vietnam vet, and I've been waiting for twenty years to say you should be dead or in jail for being a traitor." The umpire said nothing. I flied out to center. Later we talked. Then we became friends. It turned out that his hatred was toward my ex-wife, not me, because he believed certain website fabrications about Jane Fonda that circulate among veterans. Twice the Republicans in the California legislature tried to block my...

    <p>Sen. John Kerry should not try to distance himself from Jane Fonda, who "was neither wrong nor unconscionable in what she said and did in North Vietnam," says Tom Hayden, one of Miss Fonda's ex-husbands.</p> <p>Miss Fonda became notorious as "Hanoi Jane" for her 1972 propaganda trip to Hanoi. Last month she blamed "a narrow, extremely conservative, right-wing segment" for publicizing a photo of her and Mr. Kerry at a 1970 antiwar rally as part of an "attempt to smear" the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.</p>

    After spending a long day protesting in New York City, I thought that I would share my experiences with fellow FREepers who unfortunately could not be there. I was thrilled with the turn out, and I was equally appalled with some of the comments I received from people when I was walking around with my Benedict Kerry sign. One woman told me how stupid my sign was and how stupid I was to carry it. Why am I stupid...because you don't want to face the facts that your precious John Kerry is a liar and a traitor? I had another...

    Video Link: Audio Link: JOHN KERRY: Several months ago, in Detroit, we had an investigation at which over 150 honorably discharged, and many very highly decorated, veterans testified to war crimes committed in Southeast Asia. These were not isolated incidents, but crimes committed on a day-to-day basis, with the full awareness of officers at all levels of command. It is impossible to describe to you exactly what did happen in Detroit--the emotions in the room, and the feelings of the men who were reliving their experiences in Vietnam. They relived the absolute horror of what this country, in...

    Portion of John Kerry remarks on NBC's "Meet the Press" May 6, 2001: MR. RUSSERT: You mentioned you're a military guy. There's been a lot of discussion about Bob Kerrey, your former Democratic colleague in the Senate, about his talking about his anguish about what happened in Vietnam. You were on this program 30 years ago as a leader of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War. And we went back and have an audiotape of that and some still photos. And your comments are particularly timely in this overall discussion of Bob Kerrey. And I'd like for you to listen...
