How far would the American Peace Movement/Anti-War Movement go to stop a war?

Yes, Assassination of US Senators.

(Senator John) Kerry Involved in 1971 Anti-war Plot to Assassinate U.S. Senators?  (Kerry's again thinking about running for president in 2008)

U.S. Veteran Dispatch   http://www.usvetdsp.com/
August 8, 2004

Thomas H. Lipscomb, writing for the New York Sun reported March 13, 2004, that in 1971, the pro-Hanoi anti-war group that presidential candidate John Kerry was principal leader and spokesman of debated and voted down a plot to assassinate U.S. Senators who supported the Vietnam War. Numerous media outlets claim witnesses and FBI documents conclusively place Kerry at that November 1971 meeting of Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) in Kansas City.

The revelation that VVAW debated killing members of Congress is not a new. The plot was reported in Gerald Nicosia's 2001 book, Home To War. Nicosia wrote that one of the key leaders of the organization, former Marine Scott Camil, "proposed the assassination of the most hard-core conservative members of Congress, as well as any other powerful, intractable opponents of the antiwar movement."

According to the Nicosia book and interviews with VVAW members who were involved, at the VVAW's Kansas City leadership conference, Camil called together eight to 10 former Marines to organize their version "The Phoenix Project." The original Phoenix Project during the Vietnam War was a secret program designed to destroy the Vietnamese Communist leadership by assassination.

Camil's Phoenix Project planned to execute the Southern senatorial leadership Senators like John Stennis, Strom Thurmond, and John Tower who were voting to finance the Vietnam War. The senators were to be killed during the Senate Christmas recess the following month.

Mr. Nicosia's book recounts that Camil's plan was presented to all the chapter coordinators present and the VVAW leadership. "What Camil sketched was so explosive that the coordinators feared lest government agents even hear of it. So they decamped to a church on the outskirts of town with the intention of debating the plan in complete privacy. When they got to the church, however, they found that the government was already on to them; their 'debugging expert' uncovered microphones hidden all over the place. An instantaneous decision was made to move again to Common Ground, a Mennonite hall used by homeless vets as a 'crash pad.'"

Kerry campaign spokesman, David Wade, said Kerry did not attend the Kansas City meeting, and Kerry biographer Douglas Brinkley said Kerry told him he was a "noshow."   (FBI records say something different...)

"Kerry may have resigned shortly after that meeting or at the meeting…" recalled the VVAW Kansas State coordinator at the time of the meeting, John Musgrave, in a March 13, 2004, Kansas City Star interview.

Musgrave, a disabled ex-marine from Baldwin City, Kansas, told the Star that he specifically remembered Kerry's attendance and his speaking against the murder plot.

Musgrave said he got a call from John Hurley, the Kerry campaign's veterans coordinator saying "I'd like you to refresh your memory." Musgrave said Hurley said it twice. "Call that reporter back and say you were mistaken about John Kerry being there."

Musgrave said, "I told Hurley it was my first meeting as a state officer of the VVAW, and I remember John being there. I remember what I remember."

Musgrave told Lipscomb that he received three Purple Hearts in Vietnam. After the third Purple Heart for wounds by three 7.62 rounds, one to the jaw and two to the left chest, Musgrave refused the standard release from further service in the combat zone offered Marines with three Purple Hearts and tried to return to his unit, he said. Because of the extent of his injuries he was retired from the Marines with full disability and sent home, he said.
When asked whom he is supporting in the presidential election, Musgrave replied, "I am undecided. But I am sure not voting for some guy who called me a liar."
Kerry's camp said the Massachusetts Democrat does not recall the meeting, although FBI surveillance material and the group's archives clearly show that Kerry resigned from his post as VVAW national coordinator at that November 1971 meeting.

Was Kerry obligated to report the VVAW assassination plot to authorities???
Under certain conditions, knowing about such a plot and not reporting it is a crime.

New Witness: Kerry Was Present at Dark Plot Meeting Group Debated and Voted Down Plan To Assassinate Senators

By THOMAS H. LIPSCOMB
Oregon Magazine
March 15, 2004

Another witness has come forward to attest that John Kerry was at a November 1971 meeting of Vietnam Veterans Against the War at which the group debated and voted down a plan to assassinate senators who supported the Vietnam War.

A Kerry campaign spokesman, David Wade, has said Mr. Kerry did not attend the Kansas City meeting, and Kerry biographer Douglas Brinkley has said Mr. Kerry told him he was a "no show."

"Kerry may have resigned shortly after that meeting or at the meeting…" recalled the VVAW Kansas State coordinator at the time, John Musgrave, in an interview that was published Saturday in the Kansas City Star. Mr. Musgrave is the third VVAW member at the time that has been named as seeing Mr. Kerry at Kansas City. Mr. Musgrave specifically remembered Mr. Kerry's attendance and his speaking against the murder plot against the senators.

The Star cited the national director of Veterans for Kerry, a former VVAW member, John Hurley, as saying: "I think he is confusing the St. Louis and Kansas City meetings." But if Mr. Hurley is acknowledging that Mr. Kerry was present at the earlier St. Louis meeting, he is disagreeing with the Kerry spokesman, Mr. Wade, and calling into doubt a recent statement by Mr. Kerry.

At a Capitol Hill press conference Thursday, Mr. Kerry was asked by a reporter if he thought his credibility had been affected by his close association with Al Hubbard, a key VVAW colleague of Mr. Kerry's who had appointed him to the leadership of Vietnam Veterans Against the War.

Mr. Hubbard claimed to be a wounded Air Force officer who had served at Danang during the Vietnam War. He appeared with Mr. Kerry many times, including the "Meet the Press" interview after Mr. Kerry's Senate testimony about American "war crimes" in Vietnam. But Mr. Hubbard was never in Vietnam, was never wounded, and was not an officer, as subsequent research and Mr. Kerry himself have pointed out.

Mr. Kerry answered he had not spoken to Mr. Hubbard since the week of April 19, 1971. But in the New York Times of August 30, 1971, reporter Enid Nemy, covering an East Hampton fund-raising party for the Vietnam Veterans Against the War, states: "Later, Mr. Kerry and Al Hubbard, another veteran, explained some of the aims of the organization…." Those present included journalists Jimmy Breslin and Peter Maas, Bruce Jay Friedman, Tom Paxton, and Patricia Kennedy Lawford.

In separate interviews with The New York Sun, both VVAW member Terry DuBose and Kerry biographer Mr. Brinkley have confirmed Mr. Kerry's presence at the July St. Louis steering committee meeting of the VVAW.

Gerald Nicosia, author of the 2001 book "Home to War," also writes that Mr. Kerry was at that meeting. In a memorable account, Mr. Nicosia said Mr. Kerry "resigned from the executive committee" after a spectacular argument with Mr. Hubbard. "Kerry made a long speech punctuated at frequent intervals by the demand: 'Who is Al Hubbard?'" and "challenged him to prove he was a Vietnam veteran." According to the book, Mr. Hubbard "freaked out" and screamed insults at Mr. Kerry.

In the Kansas City Star account, one of the three veterans who has placed Mr. Kerry at the Kansas City meeting, Randy Barnes, first was quoted as saying Mr. Kerry was in Kansas City, which is what he had stated in his interview with the Sun.
According to the Star, "upon reflection later in the day [Barnes stated] that he could 'not be absolutely certain' that Kerry was in Kansas City for the meeting."

Terry DuBose, who initially remembered a great deal, began having failures of memory on a third call. And Scott Camil, who in his interview with the Sun could not recall whether Mr. Kerry was at the Kansas City meeting, suddenly remembered in talking with the Star several days later that Mr. Kerry was not.

In a March 13, 2004, story, the New York Times cited concern among Democrats about "careless utterances of a fatigued, or undisciplined candidate," but Mr. Wade reassured that "every statement he made we stand by."

On March 17, 2007, based on the communication strengths of the internet, an estimated 30,000 patriotic Americans from around the nation, came through an east coast snow and ice storm to stand together at the War Memorials for World War II, the Korea War and the Vietnam War.   These proud American flag-wavers stood, and still stand together in full support of America's men and women in military uniforms around the world.

WHY  DO  THESE  TWO  YOUNG  MARINES  LOOK  DRUNK?

                  Jack, 19          George, 18 

 

     Webmaster Jack Cunningham (Sussex, NJ) and George Dros (Cooperstown, NY) are sitting at a table in a Duc Duc Refugee Village peasant hut, near the village's market place.   The two, young United States Marines are members of CAP Team 2-9-2.  (CAP Teams were composed of about 8 to 13 Americans, who lived and served 24/7 in Vietnamese peasant-farming villages.    The Duc Duc Refugee Village was composed of about 2,000 homes.)
 
In the above picture, Jack's and George's eyes were shut, because of complete exhaustion.  It was July 1970.  At the time this picture was taken, the Americans in Duc Duc were not sure whether the CAP Unit would be pulled out of the village or whether it would be wiped out.  We were experiencing heavy combat.  Intelligence reports were coming in daily that the Communists wanted to punish the village while the Americans were still there.
 
      By wiping out CAP 2-9-2, the terrorists hoped to leave an example to other CAP Villages.  With alerts at the highest level, night ambush responsibilities were 100% watch throughout the night.  With two long patrols a day going outside the village, it didn't leave much time for the eight or so Americans to sleep. 
 
     Around the day this picture was taken, an intelligence report came in from the 1st Marine Division Headquarters in Da Nang that the high Communist Command wanted to speed up President Nixon's troop pullout from Vietnam.  They wanted to embarrass the Americans on a wide-scale and influence the American People into pressuring a faster troop pullout.  Their plan called for wiping out the Fifth Marines at An Hoa.  It was going to involve thousands of Communist Forces.  The Village of Duc Duc was on the large Marine Base's perimeter and was said to be the main route for the Communist attack.  Our orders that night in July 1970 was to set up in the most well protected position.  Our Cap Unit was expected to try and hold off the Communist drive off as long as possible.  We were expected to serve as a warning or trip wire (Queens Gambit) for the Fifth Marines.
 
Months after Jack and George pulled out of the village of Duc Duc, the Vietnamese communists punished the peasant village by burning it to the ground.  Hundreds of civilian men, women and children were killed, wounded and reported missing.  Two thousands homes were reduced to ashes.   The blaze could be seen from twenty-five (25) miles away in Da Nang.   It was the light of the blaze that guided United States Marines helicopters to the scene.

The boy with Jack is the Marine's village boy.  These village boys would run errands, cook C-Rations, clean up-after, massage tense muscles and serve as interpreters for the Marines.  Usually, each Marine had their own boy to help him around the village. 
 
Many times, adult peasants of Duc Duc would supply these boys with intelligence information of planned terrorist attacks on the village.   Supplying these intelligence reports on terrorist movements and plans may have been the reason why the Duc Duc Refugee Village was later burned to ashes.  
 
A month after the above picture was taken, the boy lost both of his parents in a terrorist rocket attack on their area of the Duc Duc Refugee Village.   After his parents were killed, the boy moved to a relative's home closer to the City of Da Nang;  which in the long run saved his life the night of the Duc Duc Massacre.
