at least they didn't cut off any ears
it seems john kerry just can't help himself. maybe it's because his own military career was a complete fraud, but whatever the reason, he can't help but smear american troops in harm's way:
[T]here 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.
back during vietnam, it was cutting off ears and razing villages in a "fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan." but with new wars comes new ugly slander. no longer are we compared to ravaging mongol hordes. we've graduated to gestapo.
and did anyone else notice that kerry used the t-word (that i so handily emphasized in the quote)? now we all know what a gifted orator the good senator is, so we can hardly be expected to believe that its usage was accidental.
so according to john kerry, american soldiers are rapists, pillagers, and now terrorists. funny. the rest of us have always thought of them as heroes.
