John Kerry still suffering from hoof in mouth disease
By Sher Zieve
Not satisfied with calling US troops stupid, via his now infamous 2006 remarks, the European wannabee Sen. John Kerry has now blasted the entire United States of America. But, then he also did that in the 1970s. Speaking from one of the "world's stages", this time in Davos, Switzerland, Kerry firmly placed his horsy hoof in his mouth -- again -- when he referred to the United States as "a sort of international pariah.."
Speaking before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on 22 April 1971, Kerry said of US troops in Vietnam: "They told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country." Note: Only a few individuals who claimed to have fought in Vietnam but, were later discovered to have never been in any branch of the military, backed up Kerry's claims.
To add additional insult to injury and to better understand the reasons behind Kerry's continual anti-US stance, along with Hanoi Jane Fonda and others, Kerry met secretly with the leader of the North Vietnam Communist movement -- Madame Binh of the PRG. Binh was known as the "Dragon Lady" of the Viet Cong. Even in the 1970s, Kerry was pro-Communist and anti-US democracy. With Saturday's comments, it appears that he has not changed his position. This time, however, he appears to be siding with Islamic terrorists.
Like other leftists and Democrat leaders, Kerry now waits until he is not on US soil to blast the United States and he is again attacking its citizens -- whom he no doubt believes are as "stupid" as he says are our troops. And the people of Massachusetts keep voting for this man. Amazing…
