    Which Kerry?

    Did former St. Paul’s prep school “Paulie” John Kerry, former naval officer and Swift Boat captain John Kerry (“Yes, sir, no, sir!”), preppie “Yalie” John Kerry, former Assistant District Attorney John Kerry, former Massachusetts Lt. Gov. John Kerry, former Sen. John Kerry, now Secretary of State John Kerry and husband to Mrs. Teresa Heinz, really call Vietnam veterans and U.S. military officials “war criminals?” It’s true that he said that on TV on “Meet the Press” in 1971 and testified in Congress, isn’t it? Is this the guy who now wants to bomb Syria back into the Stone Age and create tons of collateral damage and kill innocent women and children, old people and others? Isn’t that, according to John Kerry, Vietnam War protester, what the U.S. did in ’Nam? B-52 carpet bombing! Napalm? Burning villages that John Kerry admitted to! Mowing down Viet Cong with machine guns.

    Which John Kerry should be believed? Should we listen to the Vietnam War protester or the Syria war hawk? Should we listen at all? Whose kids does he want to fight this damned war? Not his, I take it. It won’t be Heinz ketchup that gets spilled, it will be blood and lots of it.

    You decide which one to believe.
