Democratic Senator John Kerry had the courage on Monday to say what he really believes about the US soldier: they are stupid for serving in Iraq.

Here is his controversial statement to a group of Californian students:


“You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”

Apparently it runs in the family. Remember the 2004 Presidential debate when Teresa Heinz-Kerry said about Laura Bush:

Well, you know, I don’t know Laura Bush. But she seems to be calm, and she has a sparkle in her eye, which is good. But I don’t know that she’s ever had a real job — I mean, since she’s been grown up. So her experience and her validation comes from important things, but different things. And I’m older, and my validation of what I do and what I believe and my experience is a little bit bigger — because I’m older, and I’ve had different experiences. And it’s not a criticism of her. It’s just, you know, what life is about.

Well! Laura Bush has only been a school teacher and mother. No real job there!

Kerry’s reply? Refusing to apologize to the troops and changing the subject. At his press conference (click on the photo below), he adds insult to injury to all military and their families with his offensive attack and inane ranting.. Must watch video of Kerry imploding and refusing to take responsibility for his comments:


Kerry is now insisting that this is the White House’s fault for taking the “botched joke” out of context. The real joke read, “If you get an education, you won’t wind up in Iraq. Just ask George Bush.” How exactly is that different? Beside the fact that George W. Bush’s GPA (grade point average) at Yale was higher than Kerry’s, he still states that if a student gets an education he can avoid going to Iraq. He can spin this anyway he wishes, but apparently everyone but Kerry knows what he really meant. He really dislikes the military. Period.

Remember these statements?

JOHN KERRY: But there is no excuse three and a half years later for American troops to be driving by IEDs and getting blown up. Are you telling me that they can’t drive a truck?


And there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women, breaking sort of the customs of the—of—the historical customs, religious customs. Iraqis should be doing that.

Military bashing aside, the idea that Kerry can so haphazardly insult the sitting Commander in Chief, which he admitted was his intent, is another example of his disrespect for America and the troops. No good soldier ridicules and mocks the Commander in Chief during wartime. But we all know this.

John Kerry is a man who volunteered for service in Vietnam to ensure a short tour, escaping a year or 2 tour that every other draftee or volunteer faced in the 70’s. He served in Vietnam from November 1968 to March of 1969 for a grand total of FOUR MONTHS. This is a man who who injured himself to avoid continuing service in Vietnam. This is a man who, once he returned to the US, bought medals from a military surplus store, which he lobbied laboriously to get, and threw them over the White House wall to show how much he distained his service and those awards.

John Kerry’s ‘Band of Brothers’

John Kerry is a man who claims to be a war hero but who virtually none of his men in Vietnam will support. The men on his swift boat said:

Though we come from different backgrounds and hold varying political opinions, we agree on one thing: John Kerry misrepresented his record and ours in Vietnam and therefore exhibits serious flaws in character and lacks the potential to lead.

We regret the need to do this. Most Swift boat veterans would like nothing better than to support one of our own for America’s highest office, regardless of whether he was running as a Democrat or a Republican. However, Kerry’s phony war crimes charges, his exaggerated claims about his own service in Vietnam, and his deliberate misrepresentation of the nature and effectiveness of Swift boat operations compel us to step forward.

Of course, all this discounts the fact that this is NOT Vietnam and that this all volunteer armed forces have answered the call to serve. All branches of the US military, Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines, are consistently exceeding recruitment and re-enlistment (retention) expectations according to the Department of Defense.


Army: 104%
Navy: 100%
Marine Corps: 107%
Air Force: 100%

This confuses a man like John Kerry, who doesn’t understand patriotism and a sense of honor, duty and country. Yesterday I posted about a young enlisted man whose funeral I attended. He was 21 adn killed in Iraq. Both he and his father served in Iraq, volunteering for service knowing full well a deployment to either Afghanistan or Iraq is imminent. Are CPL or SGM Unger uneducated or stupid, or are they heroic? Apparently John Kerry believes the first.

There’s one Vietnam vet who deserved being spat upon. His name is John Kerry.
