The new book UNFIT FOR COMMAND reveals dozens of shocking eyewitness accounts of questionable Kerry actions in Vietnam. Author John O'Neill, the man who took over John Kerry's Swift Boat, and co-author Jerome Corsi, Ph.D., have uncovered the bizarre truth behind Kerry's three Purple Hearts, his Bronze and Silver Stars, and the real reason Kerry served only four months in Vietnam.



here is a chapter, "The Purple Heart Hunter", from the book:

Bah. We've seen the records. What else can we go by? Eye-witnesses? Bah!

Please ignore the above when discussing Bush's records.

better yet, leave Bush out of this......This is pretty disturbing to hear from all these men who served with him.....unless they are ALL lying? doubtful.

Has anyone received the free chapter? I tried to get it several times, but the site either times out or gives an email error.

I heard that Kerry was the inspiration for the Mack Bolan series 'The Executioner' which in turn was the inspiration for the comic 'The Punisher'.

I feel safe at night knowing Kerry has the same amount of purple hearts as 'The Punisher'.

In certain angles Kerry even looks like Dolph Lundgren.

Did you make a similiar post in the Bush NG service thread?

Just checking your consistency.

Usually a reliable sign you're about to read something crazy.

That was my first thought too.

Too bad this stuff is even getting this much attention. Kerry seems to have brought this on himself though since he's made his war hero status the cornerstone of his campaign. I'd rather hear details of how he's going to get every country in the world to love us after he's elected. Oh well...

So if they said he was the equivalent of Rambo, would that change your vote?

For the life of me, I can't see why we keep harping on this subject and about Bush's national guard service (or non-service). It's only an issue to the partisans. It's not an issue for the swing voter. They've got more important fish to fry.

Can't we get over this and move on - then maybe actually we not might discuss some real issues that the voters care about?

no, i would be more likely to change my vote if a candidate had scores of men who served with him saying he is unfit, a liar and a coward.

I suppose.....if his opponent was Rambo. I've seen Rambo. George W Bush during that same timeframe was no Rambo (and isn't now). Heck, he wasn't even Goose in that flight suit.

Let's get over this issue so we can get to the real issues - like the love child that John Kerry fathered.

Whatever happened to the fun issues like whether a presidential candidate did drugs. I'm still wondering how in 8 short years we went from the controversy of Clinton's non-inhalation to Bush sliding under the radar by saying he had not done drugs since 1974?

That's just what we need, a thread stating that and we're challenged to disprove it.

I can say quite honestly that I don't give a damn what John Kerry was doing 30-35 years ago, and I feel the same about George W. Bush, too.

I am sadly disappointed that Kerry has decided his campaign pitch is, "I'm a war hero, he's a coward", since it's vain, shallow, and probably going to fail. But I guess the Dems figure it's their best shot.

I agree.

I can't believe the Democrats think this non-issue is their best shot, however. Surely they must know that their best shot is to question how Bush has conducted the war in Iraq, and the wisdom of being there in the first place. But Democrats have done some really dumb things in the past, so who knows?

It is hard to question Bush on Iraq when the opponent approved the action in question.
