Stolen Honor: Wounds that never heal...Alright i'm gonna watch this movie and insult Kerry on this thingy while i'm watching it. This documentary is made from a journalist who was in the war and he says how pows in other wars were seen as heros when they got back but in this war they were betrayed.
He said what John Kerry was saying during the war was lies and when he got back he heard John Kerry say things like this
"We are more guilty than any otehr body of violations of those Geneva Conventions, in the use of free fire zones, harassment interdiction fire, search and destroy missions, the bombings, the torture of prisoners, the killing of prisoners, accept policy by many units in South Vietnam.
He went on to say... "they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telphoens to human genitals and turned up the power. cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fasion reminiscent of Genghis Khan. Shot Cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the country side of South Vietnam.
Alright first of all, In his Four month tour of Vietnam he wouldn't know anything about Search and destroy missions because swift boat never went on S & D Missions. Most of the stuff he said was bull crap except their was one incident in a war where a captain went kinda crazy and ordered his men to wipe out an entire village and I forgot what they called it but the cut off ears thing did happen once to a bunch of prisoners after they died. but the way he sounds in the movie he implies it happened on a regular basis even though it was one isolated event.

The tortue tactics they used were liked those of what they chinese used to do and if u know anything about that it was the worst pain imaginable. They said everybody ended breaking and told them everything they wanted to know. They Vietcong made them confess to things they never did. They forced them to write a statemeant saying that they were treated well.
Leo was told to confess all his crimes or be executed.
The standard tortue was to put their hands in clamps behind their backs and put ropes around your upper arm and tighened them up to your elbows and left them their until they screamed long enough and than they came back and questioned them more.
That and every man who had an injury they tortured the injury more.
The men who never confessed went insane and they were left to starve to death.
They were played tapes from people like Jane Fonda that said that they were criminals and any punshiment they were recieving from the vietcong was legitament and that they deserved it...The tapes were played in their cells.
The anti-war people who came to visit them camps told to the veitcong that America was losing the war at home and the prisoners couldn't believe that they were saying that because it would just boost the enemy morale.
One man blinked morse code during a video that he was forced to say he was being treated well and he in morse code he said that they were being tortued..(I may of spelled morse code wrong cause i'm an idiot)
A lot of the men who were in veterans agaisn't vietnam never even stepped foot in Vietnam and weren't even in the military.
That and John Kerry secretly met in Paris with a Top Enemy Diplomat.
John Kerry swore in Court to this.
"The country doesn't know it yet, but its created a monster. A Monster in the form of millions of men who have been taught to deal and to trade in violence and who are given the chacne to die for the biggest nothing in history. Men who have returned with a sense of anger and a sense of betrayal which no one has yet grsped and we can not consider ourselves America's best men when we were ashamed of and hated what we were called on to do in Southeast Asian."
The prisoners were shown stuff that John Kerry has said to congress and because of it they were tortured even more.
The men were all labled a Demon and a Murderer by John Kerry
A interagator played them a tape of what John Kerry said and the tape said that John Kerry said that the POW's were war criminals and deserve to be punished. The worst part the pows said they were tortured and forced to say the things that John Kerry was willingly saying and that John Kerry was lying the entire time.
The man who made this documentary said that every man he has spoken to who was in the war said that their greatest fear wasn't dying but becoming a POW.
Every POW admits that something happened at My Lai but none of them believe that Marines did it and the man who lead it was punished and they all say that things like My Lai pretty much never happened and they all belive Kerry was a liar because Kerry says that he witnessed all of these atrocities in the four month period in the war. (Man I just saw a picture of John Kerry and he has a huge Chin."
John Kerry, "We rationalized destroying villages in order to save them. We saw America Lose her sense of morality as she accepted very cooly a My Lai and refused to give up the image of American soldiers that hand out chocolate bars and chewing gum.
We learned the meaning of free fire zones, shoot anything that moves, and we watched while America placed a cheapness on the lives of Orientals."
He created a image of them men who fought in vietnam were deranged drug addicted pyscho's....baby killers.
Tom Mcnish former POW - says every veteran he has talking to have all said Kerry was a liar.
....this is me speaking...If John Kerry did see all these things happening why didn't he ever try to stop it. If these things were so horrible and disgusting why did he wait till he got back to try to do something about it. He could've done more on the battlefield..he was a officer if his men were doing this than why didn't he stop them.
ALl the men on this video say that Kerry abonded his comrads and none of them consider him a brother in arm.
The men who came back from the war were all spit on and they couldn't even wear their military uniforms in the streets without being insulted and threatened.
All the POW'S believe believe that becuase of people like Kerry their stay in the POW'S was a lot longer than it could've been if he never told all those lies.
Bobe Dole : A decorated Vietnam veteran called on Kerry to Apologize for all the things he has said.
George Day a Medal of Honor Winner and one of the most decorated men on this century says Kerry has destroyed the name of Vietnams Veterans and he said feels that Kerry has committed treason.
The Veterans in this movie seemed to have given up the hope to ever been seen as heros and now all they want is the truth.
I saw at the democratic convention Kerry speaking about his battles as a swift boat veteran. Saying how when he was engaged in battle Old Glory was waving above him with bullet holes in it. He embelishes the fact and makes himself look like a hero. NO MAN IN ANY AMERICAN WAR CALLS HIMSELF A HERO. Most men never even speak of the war. None of the men who were on the side of our allies or the side of our enemies who have recived medals for bravery have ever said they were a hero but they all said they were just doing their duty and all these mens who are heros have never insulted our troops. During the democratic convention 2 MEN who were vietnam veterans were with KERRY. TWO MEN..If this man was a hero and if any veteran truly respected him their would be two more men. All but those two men who served under him support him. 2 Men...I don't want this man who said all these lies to be president. Tons of people who are voting for Kerry are only voting for him because they say well hes not Bush.
