    Several Navy officers who supervised Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry when he commanded a swift boat in Vietnam are preparing to publicly question his war record - including the circumstances under which he was awarded three Purple Hearts - a noted Vietnam War historian revealed on Sunday.

    Burkett, whose 1999 book, "Stolen Valor," is considered to be the definitive history of of falsified Vietnam War claims, told WABC Radio's Steve Malzberg that Kerry's former commanders would allege that the top Democrat's Purple Hearts were awarded for "self-reported injuries that were virtually nonexistent."

    "He never got a day of treatment, he never spent a day in a medical facility," Burkett said. "These were all self-reported wounds, which you're going to hear from some swift boat guys in the future as to the nature of those wounds."

    Burkett said he had personally spoken to the Navy commanders who were preparing to go public about Kerry's decorations.

    "You're going to get quite a showing [of those speaking out]," Burkett told Malzberg. "I don't know [the number] yet. They're trying to get it to be unanimous of every swift boat guy who ever served."

    I find this whole campaign to be hilarious. I see lots and lots of anti-bush people out there, but the pure Kerry supporters seem to be amongst the missing.

    Sure, and I've yet to see you give ONE GOOD REASON why anyone should vote for Kerry. We've asked the question countless times and I heard nothing but crickets chirping in the background. Kerry is a loser and America realizes that. Happy voting!

    One good reason to vote for John Kerry...wow there are so many...shall we start with...He's not George W. Bush? Nah...too easy. I'll vote for John Kerry for more than just these few reasons but here goes:

    1. John Kerry won't give massive tax breaks to the super wealthy.

    2. John Kerry wants us to be part of the world community.

    3. John Ashcroft won't be Attorney General anymore.

    4. We might actually have our business in Iraq finished by sometime before the end of this century.

    5. John Kerry will actually attempt to stimulate the economy by...gasp...creating jobs in the United States, not India and China!

    6. Donald Rumsfeld won't be Secretary of Defense anymore.

    7. We might actually have an EPA and Interior Department that give a damn about the environment.

    shall I keep going?

    1. John Kerry won't give massive tax breaks to the super wealthy.

    So, 100,000 a year, for a household is 'super wealthy'? Why do people who work hard to make money deserve to pay MORE than those who don't make a lot of scratch. Leave them to their money.

    . John Kerry wants us to be part of the world community.

    Why is that a benefit? As if we aren't now? What you are confusing with 'being a part' is 'Allowing foreign leaders to dictate our Policy.' Frankly? There isn't one 'other' country which could do a better job with 'us', than the USA. Yes - the US IS better...as a nation, than any other single, or collective of countries on the planet.

    3. John Ashcroft won't be Attorney General anymore.

    Can you articulate why you don't like Ashcroft?

    4. We might actually have our business in Iraq finished by sometime before the end of this century.

    See? you're just being stupid now.

    5. John Kerry will actually attempt to stimulate the economy by...gasp...creating jobs in the United States, not India and China!

    How so? If that DID happen, it'd be because of what GWB set in place 3.5 years ago. GWB inherited shit - and is turning it into less-smelly shit.

    6. Donald Rumsfeld won't be Secretary of Defense anymore.

    Again - can you think of anyone who could do a better job?

    7. We might actually have an EPA and Interior Department that give a damn about the environment.

    Fuck the EPA. They as an organization are worse than the KKK.

    shall I keep going?

    Please keep going...all the way to another website.
