Letter to the Editor

It’s interesting that conservatives support the decision of the Sinclair Broadcast Group’s decision to require it’s 60 some member TV stations to air and Anti-Kerry movie “Stolen Honor” two days before the election. It makes me wonder how these conservatives would feel if a group of stations decided to run the political documentary “Fahrenheit 9-11” two days before the election. Would they support that? I doubt it.

Michael Moore is doing his best to get F911 aired.

Let’s hope he pulls it off.

Yes let’s hope so, but Moore is attempting to put it on Pay-Per-View for $9.95? Now doesn’t that make it much less accessible than Sinclair’s hatchet job?

We need to clarify the facts here also. Someone, somewhere and very very soon, needs to make it succinctly clear just how much social upheaval and civil disobedience there was during the Vietnam era. Why doesn’tSinclair give equal footage to the mass moratoriums that went on in various parts of our country? Why doesn’t Sinclair show footage of the four Kent State University students who were shot dead by the Nixon Administration for protesting against Vietnam? These were sad, tumultuous and exceptionally transformatie years that we endured. The majority of people, young and old, opposed Vietnam in the first place.
It was common knowledge that atrocities were committed by our troops. Vietnam vets were unpopular for going to war in the first place and those who fled to Canada were greatly lauded for the efforts to say “NO” to the “establishment”!

The once highly unpopular Vietnam “gung-ho” group has now morphed into the Bushy Neocon-Artists! What social chicanery! If they succeed at this we might as well start re-writing every history textbook in the country.

Having lived through the draft for the Vietnam War, and the turmoil our country endured because of that war, I concur with thes comments : the majority of Americans eventually recognized what a mistake it was to go to war in Vietnam. Kerry’s role as a young soldier returning to the US was to help us all recognize that earlier. This in turn helped speed our departure, hence lesser American soldier lives lost.

Those who say Kerry’s testimony in Congress served to empower the Vietcong are being sucked in by the Bush progaganda. The Vietcong had fought for more than 10 years against the most powerful military in the world, and held up. The teenage peasant-soldiers acting as Vietnamese soldiers wouldn’t hear, understand, nor base their fighting on some Congressional hearings in Washington. What a baseless joke!

Kerry was brave enough back then to endure the taunts of those opposed to his views, and expressed honestly what he had heard of going on in Vietnam. Coming from a rich white family, he could have readily rested in some cushy mansion, ignoring the whole war, and after-effects, just like George Bush did. (Bush instead disappeared from his Texas Air guard post, to help a political campaign, played around in his Fraternity, got a DUI, a touch of cocaine… Instead, Kerry showed the backbone and honesty to stand up for principles, which were shown by history to be honorable.
