Being the sentimental, forgiving, sensitive person that I am, I wish this bit_ _ was subjected to the same humane treatment that our "WAR CRIMINALS" received . In my opinion she is not fit to be spit upon by any veteran. My now 29+ year old daughter happened to be in the vicinity somewhere about 15 years ago when I voiced my opinion of Hanoi Jane. She later mentioned that she had never heard such words of disgust and just downright venomous words from her father. Today she understands why. I have mentioned before that I have more respect for Tokyo Rose than Hanoi Jane. I still feel that way. I even believe Tokyo Rose lived until her death in the eastern part of our USA. Minnesota I believe. She would not have been welcome in my home but I would not demean her. Hanoi Jane is below demeaning. [B]Hanoi Jane and the like are the perfect example of why we should never should send our troops into battle without a declaration of war being declared.[/B] Police action my a_ _,if they are shooting at us,were are in a war zone,PERIOD! I should be a good Christian and forgive her. That might happen on the Second Tuesday of next week. But even then I seriously doubt it. catfish
warsteed, I realize the examples of the exploits in Nam were not all true and in fact probably extremely false statements have been made about her. When I came home in 68 I was able to listen to this bit** tell about how we (the Americans) were over there happily (according to her) killing and raping women and children.Evan a Lie doesn't do enough to place the amount of blame and shame I feel she should be accredited for. She is a TRAITOR PLAN AND SIMPLE!!!!! catfish
I definitely don't argue with you there catfish. I can't even describe the taste in my mouth i get when i think about her, or the feelings that occur when i see her on tv ESPECIALLY when talking politics. I say this as a younger veteran, i can't begin to even fathom what the Vietnam Era vets must feel and how much more they must hate this woman than I.
