Marine Actions Same as Kerry's

There is a strong similarity between the Marine's actions and Kerry's.

Patrolling the Bay Hap River, Kerry and his crew discovered they were about to be ambushed by a Viet Cong soldier who had just popped up at the shoreline with a loaded rocket launcher in his hands. With the VC about to fire, Kerry crew mate Thomas Bellodeau shot and wounded the attacker, saving the entire boat.

Only then did Kerry leap to the shore to chase the wounded enemy down - finishing him off behind a hootch.

When critics suggested that Kerry's actions that day were something less than heroic, they were hooted down by the press.


The Leftists (MSM = Leftists = Democrats) should be careful on this one. They already are perceived, correctly, as being hostile to the military and other national security organs. At best, they believe national security organs are necessary evils. This is one of the top reasons Democrats lost the election.

For example, they constantly assaulted military (and intelligence) budgets pre 9/11. They placed ridiculous restrictions on intelligence gathering in the 70s, and then castigate the department for any failure. The MSM demonizes the military at every opportunity (check out Fahrenheit 9/11) and gleefully covered naked prisoner piles at Abu Ghraib, all the while downplaying or ignoring the real atrocities in Iraq. And here, the media is generally refusing to put the shooting into context, which would include the terrorists booby trapping dead bodies, fake surrenders and the like during the Fallujah assault.

You know, there's a reason 80% of the military votes Republican. If the Democrats could figure that out, and do something about it, the party would appeal to much more of the electorate.
