Special Forces Veterans Oppose John Kerry

The entire open letter by Vets for Bush contains some pointed remarks. The remarks start by highlighting his actions in Vietnam.
THE UNDERSIGNED SPECIAL FORCES VIETNAM VETERANS support our Swift Boat brothers-in-arms and believe that John Kerry is unfit to be our Commander-in-Chief or to lead our nation as President.
For most of us the question of his fitness to serve as Commander-in-Chief, or in any other office of honor and high public responsibility, was settled permanently in the negative thirty-three years ago. He slandered and dishonored all Vietnam Veterans in false and exaggerated testimony before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
He has unrelentingly opposed issues vital to veterans. He has supported measures that have led to genocide of our former allies, the Montagnards, and the enslavement of the people of Vietnam.
He has blocked efforts to enact Human Rights legislation to help alleviate their condition.
He has taken action which led to the abandonment of American POWs in Vietnam that most of us believe were left behind.
The remarks then turn to the modern era and Kerry's nebulous claims about strengthening our military
His stated plan to double special operations forces rapidly in response to todays threats demonstrates his lack of understanding of what makes a Special Forces soldier and fails understand that the available conventional armed forces manpower pool is insufficient to provide the necessary qualified personnel without seriously degrading standards.
Then, the letter returns to Kerry's character under fire:
He was the commander of a military unit, in this case a Naval combatant craft, and he abandoned his crew to the fight to return to a life of ease. By the standards expected of a Naval line officer of the United States, even with the most charitable interpretation, this is contemptible.
The letter even goes so far as to remind everyone that Kerry has declined to sign his Form 180 to release ALL of his military records even though he and his cronies have demanded the same of President Bush:
(we) call him to sign Standard Form 180 to authorize the full release of all records pertaining to his service.
I don't know about you but if you say you "support the troops" the answer as to who you should support for President is clearly George W. Bush. After all, how many times have you heard about large groups of veterans including both Democrats and Republicans coming together to condemn Bush?
