Hey children. How are you? I have an idea. Let's all post an example of something really stupid. Just to liven us all up a bit. And we can discuss and things! Example: tropiicxoswetii. She is stupid. Even though she is on my friends page. Oh well. :D
Kerry's commanding officer in Vietnam, George Elliott, said in an attack ad: "John Kerry has not been honest about what happened in Vietnam."
But during the Vietnam War, Elliott recommended Kerry for the Silver and Bronze Star medals for valor in combat and gave him the highest possible praise in his officer efficiency reports.
"In a combat environment often requiring independent, decisive action, LTjg Kerry was unsurpassed," Elliott wrote in 1969. He went on to rate Kerry as "calm, professional and highly courageous in the face of enemy fire."
i dont understand why that is stupid at all... during the war, John Kerry did things that were very good. After the war, he realized that he was in fact very anti-war, and turned on all of the veterans who he served with, because he saw war crimes being committed. He then accused all veterans of the war of being hideous war criminals, because of what he saw happen by a few select soldiers. This therefore makes him DISHONEST about what had happened in the war. Great, Eliott thought he did a great job, until he found out how many people Kerry accused of doing horrible things. I really haven't been that anti-kerry until i found out about this... and its not Swift Boat propaganda, its just what happened... i don't see the controversy here.
