Kerry Committed War Crimes, 'Burned Villages' in Viet Nam
Submitted by United Press International
Original Publisher: United Press International
Another site, Wintersoldier.com, places records from Sen. Kerry's anti-war protests online, including the transcript of the full question and answer session before a U.S. Senate committee, where the young Vietnam veteran detailed, among other activities, his trip as a civilian to the Paris Peace talks involving the U.S., South Vietnamese and North Vietnamese governments.

"I have been to Paris. I have talked with both delegations at the peace talks -- that is to say the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and the Provisional Revolutionary Government," Kerry said during testimony on April 22, 1971, before the Foreign Relations Committee, according to the transcript posted on the site.

Wintersoldier.com also features audio sound bites -- in the MP3 format -- of Kerry describing what he did in Vietnam, both in testimony before the Senate and in an interview.

"Yes, I committed the same kinds of atrocities as thousands of other soldiers have committed," Kerry said in the sound bite. "I took part in search and destroy missions, in the burning of villages."

Re: Kerry Committed War Crimes, 'Burned Villages' in Viet Nam

War is a crime "dead". Anyone who is involved in any of the U.S. Imperialist wars (which they virtually all are) are involved in crimes. Obviously. Kerry has admitted all of it. He was a pawn just like everyone else. The point is that he came back, admitted the atrocities, and spoke out about it.

That was then anyway. He's up for more troops now. Same old.

We have to understand, the U.S. is NEVER going to pull out of Iraq! They have already stated openly their plan for a 3,000 member U.S. Embassy in Iraq, as a "gateway to the mideast". So, they are thriving on the conflict, as it gives reason for more troops. It's going to get allot worse. And then when the next staged attack happens on U.S. soil, Iraq will go into the background, when our own asses are on the line. Of course, PNAC calls for invading Iran, N. Korea etc. So the ride has just begun. It aint going to get better before it gets so much worse, that our entire reality and life is going to change.
