  • Unfit For Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry By John E. O'Neill Jerome R. Corsi What sort of combination of hypocrite and paradox is John Kerry ask the authors in this heated critique of the Democratic presidential candidate s Vietnam era military service and antiwar activism O Neill, a lawyer and swift boat veteran, and Corsi, an expert on Vietnam antiwar movements, argue that Kerry misrepresented his wartime exploits and is therefore incompetent What sort of combination of hypocrite and paradox is John Kerry ask the authors in this heated critique of the Democratic presidential candidate s Vietnam era military service and antiwar activism O Neill, a lawyer and swift boat veteran, and Corsi, an expert on Vietnam antiwar movements, argue that Kerry misrepresented his wartime exploits and is therefore incompetent to serve as commander in chief Buttressed by interviews with Navy veterans who patrolled Vietnam s waters, some along with Kerry, the book claims he exaggerated minor injuries, self inflicted others, wrote fictitious diary entries and filed phony reports of his heroism under fire all in a calculated quest to secure career enhancing combat medals They also maintain that Kerry, whom they call a moral coward, committed atrocities that alarmed his peers and superior officers during his four month tour of duty Yet his activities on behalf of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War clearly raises the authors hackles the most, and they present Kerry s post war actions as additional, damning evidence of his total unfitness, claiming that his testimony against the war caused deaths and prolonged the war in Vietnam by undermining support at home and contributing directly to a Vietnamese Communist victory The battle that lies at the heart of this book is the decades old feud between antiwar veterans and their my country right or wrong counterparts The authors conservative take on the war is palpable the U.S military failed to unleash massive, indiscriminate bombing to force North Vietnam s capitulation the conflict was a struggle against communism, not a civil war and the dissenting soldiers undermined homefront morale Consequently, this overwrought and repetitive polemic seethes with a resentment that compromises the otherwise eyebrow raising testimonies Further, without access to Kerry s full military and medical records, the authors rely heavily on 35 year old recollections and recent Kerry biographies by Douglas Brinkley and a Boston Globe reporting team Those looking for a thorough, unbiased investigation into Kerry s wartime record would do best to wait for objective, methodical chroniclers who have access to the relevant documents.

    1. This book just shows how long ago Kerry wanted to be President It was all a big set up and the media fell for it.After reading this book I don t feel that he is fit to be dog catcher, however with the right PR I am sure he will become an ambassador.


    2. Ini adalah ulasan buku dwi bahasa This is a bilingual book reviewSaya masih ingat,pada tahun 2004,kehangatan pilihan raya presiden Amerika Syarikat yang menyaksikan pertembungan antara George W Bush yang bertanding untuk mengekalkan kerusi presiden untuk penggal kedua dan John F Kerry calon presiden Parti Demokrat Pada masa itu,walaupun saya bukanlah seorang rakyat Amerika Syarikat,tetapi,saya secara senyap senyap menyokong John Kerry kerana saya memikirkan beliau adalah calon yang sesuai untuk [...]


    3. If John Kerry wants to throw his Vietnam medals, he has earned his right to do just that Shame on everyone responsible for this book.


    4. This book was a well documented account of why John Kerry was unfit to be president of the USA His flaws of both character and conduct made him unfit for any public office.


    5. About a Man that wants to be President, August 24, 2004By Walter H PierceEdit ReviewDelete ReviewThis review is from Unfit For Command Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry The thesis of the book is that John F Kerry is unfit to be commander and chief of the United States.The book is comprised two sections, the first concerned with John F Kerry in Viet Nam and the second concerned with John F Kerry and his involvement with the Vietnam Veterans Against the War Two appendices include an [...]


    6. A clear look into the character of John Kerry.I doubt that anyone who actually reads this book could bring themselves to vote for John Kerry, no matter how much they might dislike Bush This book was written by Kerry s own band of brothers that he loves to talk about Every single commanding officer and over 200 other Vietnam Vets that served with Kerry have publically come out to stand against him Only one of Kerry s fellow officers 1 20 of the officers in that picture that airs on Kerry s campai [...]


    7. This book is poorly written and hard to follow, but I gave it three stars rather than two because it did provide some useful information I had the misconception that Kerry actually servied honorably in Vietnam and had been in Vietnam for an extended tour of duty throughout his career But this book provided clarity on that issue in that he only served three months in Vietnam and got sent home Thus, he clearly exaggerated his service in battle as well as his story that he had been sent to Cambodia [...]


    8. I didn t read this book until years after Kerry ran for president, and when I did, I was appalled I voted for Kerry, but when over a hundred of the veterans who served with Kerry said he was a schmuck, I m inclined to believe them Nor did I know he made out the paperwork and recommended himself for his own purple heart awards, and his injuries were scarcely than scratches Disgusting.


    9. No wonder why Kerry lost This book revealed quite a bit about this self proclaimed war hero These veterans knew this guy up close and personal and did the right thing for coming forward and exposing him for what he really is He never was able to recover from this, nor did he ever take any serious legal action against the Swift Boat Veterans How could he They told the truth.


    10. This is the Swift Boat Veterans account of John Kerry s service I m a Republican so I found it interesting, but not surprising because most of the information has been so heavily covered by the media.


    11. During his campaign, all the political Junk was just junk However, this volumn shows the historical truths of the matter Maybe I should hone my search for truth skills Time well invested in this read.


    12. This book went into a lot of interesting details on the life of then Senator Kerry It was enlightening to see this man who so many call a hero as his comrades saw him then and how they see him today This book is a good read for anyone interested in the life of this controversial man.


    13. Very tough read for a 10 year veteran who served myself during the Viet Nam war The war may be over yet there still are all of these lingering stories that will someday help us in not considering war as a solution some how to the problems in the world.


    14. I just felt this was your typical one sided political book that didn t make much sense to boot I almost walked out of it with a what s the point feeling, but it did have a big following at the time, so I didn t want to pass the book up either.


    15. A hatchet job with historical significance Clearly biased, but the most serious charges have been proven and the electorate shrugged.





    16. Disturbing I assumed that the Swift Boat Veterans were mostly blowing hot air, but after hearing the accusations directly from the source I think they may have a point.


    17. This book came under a lot of fire no pun intended If you think you know the real story this book is worth the read it may just change your opinion.


    18. Very interesting information contained in this book, but very dull and dry in parts.Lots of dates and facts Not as entertaining as I had hoped


    19. I wasn t sure if this book may be exagerated due to the fact that the author and fellow veterans are clearly not fans of Carey, although, neither am I Nonetheless, I enjoyed it.



    20. My friends father helped to write this and although I appreciate the information, as far as books go, it was boring and a chore to read.
