    New York Times Casts Aspersions On The Troops

    Echoing the 1971 sentiments of Democrat anti-war Senator and failed 2004 presidential candidate, John Kerry, the New York Times is now running their own “War Veterans are monsters” series, surely to raise public fears of our Heroes.

    In the now infamous ”Testimony” Kerry gave before the Fulbright Commission back in 1971, we were told of returning Viet Nam Veterans,
    “The country doesn't know it yet, but it has created a monster, a monster in the form of millions of men who have been taught to deal and to trade in violence… men who have returned With a sense of anger and a sense of betrayal…”
    as well as,
    “…there will be some recrimination but far, far less than the 200,000 a year who are murdered by the United States of America…..”

    Now, under the title, “War Torn,” the New York Times, long known for its opposition to the current war, explains the series as, “A series of articles and multimedia about veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan who have committed killings, or been charged with them, after coming home.”
    Part one, titled Across America, Deadly Echoes of Foreign Battles informs us “121 Veterans are linked to killings since their return.”

    The Times article also tells us, “these are stories of local crimes, gut-wrenching postscripts to the war for the military men, their victims and their communities. Taken together, they paint the patchwork picture of a quiet phenomenon, tracing a cross-country trail of death and heartbreak.”
