So, Hanoi Jane Was Sorry, Huh?

Anyone remember back a few months when Jane Fonda was blubbering on Barbara Walters about her new book, and how she was sorry for slandering the troops coming home and fighting in Vietnam? Well, this knucklehead showed how sorry she really was yesterday.

"Hanoi Jane" Fonda is claiming that ever since Vietnam, U.S. troops have been trained to commit atrocities against innocent civilians as a matter of military policy.

"Starting with the Vietnam War we began training soldiers differently," the anti-American actress says in an email to the Washington Post.

Fonda claims she learned of the policy switch in "secret meetings" she had with military psychologists "who were really worried about what was happening to our combat personnel."

One doctor, she insists, told her U.S. troops had been deliberately trained to be "killing machines."

"This began," Fonda maintained, "because the military discovered that in World War II and Korea, [U.S.] soldiers weren't killing enough."

"So they changed training procedures" to teach troops how to commit atrocities.

Still, the anti-war gadfly cautions, it's important not to blame the soldiers themselves for carrying out war crimes.
Recalling the "Winter Soldier" hearings that she and John Kerry staged in 1971, Fonda lamented: "When you put young people into an atrocity-producing situation where enemy and civilian are commingled, where the 'other side' is dehumanized, we cannot be surprised."

Anti-war vets now returning from Iraq, Fonda cautioned, should be listened to instead of being dismissed as "unpatriotic."

This is as preposterous as Pres. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's racist statement that there was no Holocaust. (Yes, we do read each other's posts.) Jane Fonda, noted movie actress and antiwar moonbat, has just done it again. She's slandered our soldiers. Our soldiers aren't instructed how to commit atrocities. As a matter of fact, the UCMJ strictly prohibits such actions.

Any person subject to this chapter who is guilty of cruelty toward, or oppression or maltreatment of, any person subject to his orders shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.--Subchapter X, Section 893

They can't do it. Or has Ms. Fonda forgotten about those prosecuted for such treatment in the Abu Ghraib case? We don't engage in the behavior that our enemies do. It's forbidden. We have always done our best to care for our POWs/detainees. Theyt receive the best treatment, the best care, etc., that the military can provide. Any tribunal is carried out professionally and fairly. This isn't "Mother Russia" with it's show trials, phony witnesses, and threats of violence to admit what these people did.

Maybe Ms. Fonda is having flashbacks to the glory days when she could slime our troops at will without fear of any sort of repercussions. If that's the case, here's a wake-up call for the little drama queen. People pay closer attention now, and they're not too fond of such statements regarding the military. She is catching six degrees of Hell from bloggers, and she was one of the focuses on talk radio today. It was brief, as many hosts paid close attention to the impending Iraqi elections, but when it was brought up, callers from across the country made their views known.

They're not impressed. They're incensed at the slanderous allegation. And a few--The Asylum included--are calling for her to reveal the names of the people in these supposed "secret meetings." Who were they, Ms. Fonda? we'd like to know so we can check the facts. We'd really like to know what head shrinker in the military saw it fit to engage in such rhetoric slandering their own brothers in arms. I'd wager she's lying to gain some more attention now that her previous five minutes of fame are up. She reminds me of people like Mother Sheehan; always looking for a camera or microphone to make an ass out of herself, and shove relevant news off the front pages.

This is pathetic. Were I not so outraged by this allegation, I would've paid this less attention. But these are charges that demand to either be backed up with solid fact, or retracted as a lie. (We're still waiting to see the retraction from the New York Times over their bogus story this morning.) So, cough it up, Ms. Fonda. Show your facts. Don't let your moronic mouth wirte checks your butt can't cash. Tell us your sources, let us verify your "facts" with the people you provide, and we can move on.

Oh, and one more thing, no one I'm aware of has EVER accused past vets with antiwar statements of being unpatriotic. The only one I'm vaguely aware of is Jimmy Massey. And no offense this piece of slime deserved it. Even after being refuted by his own squad martes, he still contends that his Marine squad murdered civilians in Iraq. He's been outed as a liar, and because he continues to lie, he has dishonored himself. Patriotic? Not hardly. A patriot doesn't slander his fellow soldiers for crimes he can't prove, and is continuously shown to be lies by witnesses present.

One things for sure, any points she scored with veterans, and they forgave her, are now shot to Hell.

I've always said that Hanoi jane's "Apology" wasn't sincere. It's not accepted. Recently she showed her insincerity. She and kerry should hang! They are traitors! Rawriter
