Kerry (shot 3 times
Kerry got 2 scratches and a schrapnel wound, 2 required no treatment, the schrapnel required 2 stiches, he missed 2 days service for all 3 purple hearts. he turned himself in for all 3 knowing he would be allowed out of Vietnam after only 4 months of service there.
In December 1992 ,as chairman of the Select Senate Committee on POW/MIA Affairs, created in 1991 to investigate reports that U.S. prisoners of war and soldiers designated missing in action were still alive in Vietnam, Kerry badgered the panel into voting that no American servicemen remained in Vietnam.
Kerrys family recieved a real estate contract worth billions when relations with Viet Nam were normalized. Hanoi announced that it had awarded Colliers International, a Boston-based real estate company, an exclusive deal to develop its commercial real estate potentially worth billions. Stuart Forbes, the CEO of Colliers, is Kerry's cousin.”
Kerry continues his apologia for Vietnam's never-ending atrocities. "Far from taking the lead on the Vietnam Human Rights Bill, he has prevented it from coming to a vote. He claims that making an issue of Hanoi's repression would be counterproductive
Only Sen. Teddy Kennedy and Barbara Boxer have more left-wing voting records than Kerry.
Kerry has taken credit for middle-class tax cuts, child tax credit and relief of the marriage penalty, he voted against them.
In August 1996 Kerry announced that he opposed the National Missile Defense because North Korea was simply not a threat. Two years later North Korea fired its Tae Po Dong missile over Japan, dropping a simulated nuclear warhead off the U.S. coast.
As president Kerry would end the U.S. National Missile Defense program and seek to re-establish the useless paper treaties with the former Soviet Union and North Korea.
