We did underestimate Saddam's EVIL (english)
29 Mar 2003
Modified: 30 Mar 2003
AverageProudAmerican "If you are a Vietnam veteran, no wonder you were kicked out of Vietnam. You underestimated the enemy. And you are doing the same thing here."
We were not kicked out of Vietnam. Many Vietnamese loved us, and still do!!

Leftist-Hate is getting stronger as they become more desperate. Peace has nothing to do with it. It happened during the Vietnam War and all the years following it. However, my hat is
off to all "true" Lovers-of-Peace. No one wants war, but the far-wings of the political scale.

When I came home from Vietnam and I was wearing my Marine uniform, a bus driver let me on his bus for free. The only factor was... I had to sit in the back of the bus. He said that he
did not want trouble on his bus. (Was the bus driver afraid of Peace-Lovers or Leftists, who use Peace as their Rallying Cry? Leftists the same ones, who are doing Civil Disobedience
and more in the streets of America today! Peace is one thing; Civil Disobedience is a crime.)

I served and lived 24/7 in a Vietnamese peasant-farming village in the countryside. My Marine Unit, the Combined Action Program (CAP) was known by the Vietnamese for its
kindness. Usually, we only had about eight (8) Americans in a village of sometimes 2,000 peasants. We did the best we could to protect the people and help them around the village
with Civil Action Projects. My unit had the nickname "The Peace Corps Volunteers With Rifles." LIFE Magazine did an article on my unit. Here's a link to the article.

In 1970, when I was in my own village, combat was very heavy. The Communist Terrorists were constantly trying to hurt the peasants in order to instill fear. (Just as Saddam is
doing… Communist Terrorists used kids, under threat to their families, to hurt American Troops.) I ended up getting wounded during three different terrorist attacks. Being lucky, they
were minor wounds. But I still setoff metal detectors when I walk through, because the metal is still in me. I lost count on how many total times, my village of Duc Duc, Vietnam was
attacked by the Leftists Terrorists.

In April 1970, I received newspaper articles and pictures about my town's Vietnam Veteran Memorial getting attacked with Tar & Paint. I received the pictures from my hometown’s
post office with no letter and no Return Address. I strongly believe the person(s), who sent it to me, was/were not "True" Peace-Lovers… they were Leftists who wanted me to feel
something about Americans back home. Here's a link to the same pictures (top of page) that I saw back in April 1970, while serving and living in my village of Duc Duc.

In May 1970, during an operation just outside my village, we found supplies and money donated to the Communist Terrorists by an American Leftist College Group. (I do not
think "True" Peace-Lovers would actively support America’s enemies.)

In March 1971, my Vietnamese Peasant village of Duc Duc was slaughtered… yet it stayed out of American Newspapers and was not reported on American Television.
http://home.earthlink.net/~ducducvietnamfriends .

I consider myself a lucky Vietnam Vet. Many more Vietnam Vets gave so much more than I did. And I'm not talking about the 59,000 names listed on "The Wall" in Washington DC.

It’s a real shame; Leftists were able to take over Vietnam. The poor people of Vietnam have not voted in a Free Election since America left them. ( I do my best to make sure
American-Leftists are not allowed by America to do this again!)

For those, who would like to see more pictures of the peasants of Duc Duc, Vietnam; before it was slaughtered by the Leftist Terrorists (Viet Communists a.k.a. V.C.), please visit
http://home.earthlink.net/~vietnamwar

America, please do not let Saddam do this to his own men, women and children. He is using his own people as shields for his loyal troops and then he is blaming it on our troops.
Saddam gets more out of his Leftist Propaganda Machine than he does with his troops.

Thank our Military and our Veterans at: http://home.earthlink.net/~thank_a_veteran

vets are for peace (english)
29 Mar 2003
vets are for peace...there is not one documented story of a vet being spit on. it's the biggest myth going. STOP THE WAR
the no one wants war lie (english)
29 Mar 2003
Jack is full of it. Anyone who believes or makes believe that no one wants war has to be an idiot or a warmonger trying to con us. Or maybe he believes all the war lies and propaganda.

I should not take a very large brain to understand that wars are only inflicted on the world because war-profiteers want wars.

A five year-old child can figure that out. I hope that no one is fighting for me in Iraq. Saddam is about as dangerous to me as the man on the moon.

We are not against you (english)
29 Mar 2003
I have no intention of spitting on any veterans. I do not hate the military. I do not hate our country. I do not consider myself left, right, or anything else. Every side has extremists. That is the nature of the world.
What I hate to see is my sister becoming a widow because Bush, Cheney and the other former CEOs stand to make a huge profit off the blood and horror of war. This is not freedom we are fighting for here. The men and women of the military are being being killed for the sake of companies that stand to make billions if not trillions from their blood.
I do not accept this. The majority of those who are standing against Bush and this war are not against the individuals of the military but are against the atrocity of them being killed in the name of greed.
I suggest that you turn off the propoganda from your television and do a little research on Dick Cheney, James A Baker, and Donald Rumsfeld. Or you could simply question any knowledgable peace activists.
We are not against you. If I see you at a peace gathering I will be sure to give you a hug and listen to the stories of what you had to endure.
Ignorance is Evil (english)
30 Mar 2003
Fear is evil. Greed is evil. Ignorance is evil.

http://BFI.org

Greed is ignorance, because there is no shortage of real wealth on Earth.

Artifical scarcity promoted by "our" banking system serves only the ignorant and greedy who fear decentralization of power and genuine liberation.

Power-mongers are addicted to their artificial power like coke addicts, like Big Brother in George Orwell's "1984".

I don't see that President Hussein is any worse than "our" government. If anything, he's quite a bit more honest and intelligent.

Although I'm saddened that war exists, I'm glad that Russia and other nations are helping Arabs defend themselves from the world banksters' assault.

And who is "our" government?

"A nation that's ignorant and free is a nation that never was and never shall be."

- Thomas Jefferson

Dissolve Zionism. Restore Palestine. Support our troops - bring them home.

Neither "right" nor "left" but real.
