I have been researching McCain's account of his POW experiences in his autobiography FAITH OF MY FATHERS and have a question. He identifies all of his Vietamese interrogators by both name and nickname except for one -- the one he calls "the Bug". Does anyone here know what that guy's name is? Thanks in advance.

Beautiful British Columbia – The Best Place on Earth?
By Concerned Citizen of Canada


     This year, British Columbia will celebrate its 150th year. It has been said that its beauty made it to be the best place on earth to live. Is this for real or just a fact?
     People came to Canada with full of dreams thinking that this is the land of promises. Promises that will give them chance to fulfill their aspirations in life. In reality, this is not the best place to live. Everybody here is busy making ends meat. Trees here are not bearing money to pick it up. In as much as possible you must have three to four jobs to pay your taxes, mortgages, car loans and others. You don’t even have time to enjoy. And mind you this situation will become worst after the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. If you have heard and seen those statistical data through our modern technology such as; internet, television, radios and newspapers, those were just factual information that hasn’t been proven throughout the Olympic history. Many of those countries who’ve hosted this kind of event suffered from deep debts. To name a few are Montreal who just happened to pay their debt after three decades, Salt Lake City who’s until now on their way of solving the economic downfall, Turin, Italy and many others. It’s the taxpayers who are handling the problems created by bureaucracy and managed by the greediness of the government officials and the elite groups who happens to be part of the International Olympic Committee.
     What’s happening now to China is an eye opening for all nations. Demonstrations on streets can be seen around the world, mass killings and many others. These were the results of abusive empowerment of people in position. In Vancouver, you can see more of the result of the Olympic preparations in the east-side of the city with many homeless citizen. With these, people should be aware of the false impressions created by the VANOC officials on Olympic venue sites. Human deficit has been created by unscrupulous government officials of British Columbia who have failed in social policy on its inhabitants.
     People of all nations, it’s time for us again to fight back. We don’t need high explosives or heavy devices. We only need “MASS CONSCIOUSNESS”, the power of mind intent. This is the most effective way to prove our worth. This is a tool to change weather patterns. Yes, February 2010 will be rainy, foggy and windstorms may occur to southern coastal regions of British Columbia if we will join together using our mind. We could completely wash-out Olympic Organizers and its allies. This will be a great humiliation to the whole world.

In response to Bob's question, while Bill and I tried not to become overly political, we did discuss Kerry's efforts to claim (falsely in our view), that he "solved" the POW/MIA issue. Nothing could be further from the truth.

I hope this portion of the conference will cover in detail Kerry's role in pressing the impression that all MIA/POWs of the Vietnam War are accounted for.

I had a friend in the Pentagon, who served in a "sensitive" position and was privy to back-channel information. He informed me that a deal had been cut when our POWs returned from North Vietnam that none of the POWs would be tried for treason for conduct unbecoming. Their reasoning was based on not wanting to cause further national grief over the war. Nixon wanted Vietnam forgotten.

There are a number of "schools of thought" on the issue. Some of the returning POWs wanted their fellow POWs who had colaborated with the North Vietnamese punished. They were convinced that for the good of the nation they should back off--also it seems like everyone breaks evenually or has something they are ashambed over after being a POW for five and six years. (That is for everyone except honorable warriors like Rocky Versace.)

Having said that, I have problems with Senator McCain when he and Senator Kerry returned to Vietam to "normalize" relations with them for Clinton. Photographs of McCain revisiting his prison with his son and hugging the Vietnamese who was in charge of torturing him--bother me. (Mancurian Candidate?)

McCain HAD to of been a major target for the North Vietamese to break--especially his father and grandfather both having been powerful navy admirals. Also--they had many YEARS to break him.

The fact is he is one of North Vietnam's BEST friends in the senate and that REALLY bothers me, especially when I was one of those types who actually had a hand grenade taped to my web gear--that was for me in the event I was wounded. It is difficult for any of us to say what we would have done--but I KNOW I would NEVER hug the man who had tortured me for five yaers--but then again, I would have never returned to my prison WITH my son!

We know there were American traitors who monitored radios for the North Vietnamese and even LEAD NVA patrols in I Corps.. What ever happened to them?

When President Clinton gave Vietnam favorable trade status under the condition that all American POWs had been returned--he caused the EXECUTION of any Americans still in Vietnam, Laos or Cambodia.

For more than thirty years the Vietnamese stated there were no Americans left in Vietnam, even American traitors who had been captured and decided to cooperate with the North Vietnamese have been executed, along with the American riff-raff that stayed behind in Vietnam after their tour of duties were up and operated drug rings and whore houses when Saigon fell so rapidly they could not escape.

Vietnam cannot afford to have an American POW appear out of the jungle and end their trade agreements. It is much safer to put a bullet behind the left ear fo the Ameircans who were still living in Vietnam--for the best interest of their poverty stricken nation.

Col. Ted W. Guy, a man, a friend truely missed said it best and I want to quote him if I may:

Until 1990, I believed that all the POWs were released during Operation Homecoming in 1973. I maintained this belief until 1990.

In fact, I gave many, many talks around the country about the POW issue. My closing remarks were always the same: "All the POWs are home that are coming home and the rest (MIAs) are dead".

You see, I firmly believed that my government would not lie to me. In early 1990, after talking to many family members of POWs and MIAs, I began having doubts. What followed was a thorough re-examination of the whole issue. The more I listened instead of talking, the more I read, then the more the odds swung towards the fact that YES, there were POWs left behind (abandoned) and YES, there was evidence that some might still be alive. Since that time I have spoken repeatedly of the need to learn the truth and my position
has been published and/or quoted by the media.

Hello fellow Internet surfer and welcome to The Hanoi Hilton. I'm very glad that you made it this far . . . and I hope that you'll stick around long enough to get to know just a little bit more about the prison camps and some POW's confined within.

These days, acquaintances that begin in cyberspace are often the most real, vivid, and long-lasting - and maybe that will be true of us.

I am a retired Air Force fighter jock, with over two hundred and fifty combat missions, both in Korea and Vietnam. On March 20, 1968, while on a mission in Southern Laos, I was zapped by the North Vietnamese Communists and became their guest in the various resorts in Laos and in and around Hanoi, North Vietnam.

Apparently, I complained too much about the service, or lack thereof, and spent almost four of the next five years in solitary confinement. During this time, I had the honor of being the commander (Senior Ranking Officer) of those captured in South Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. In our group we had State Department employees, members of all service branches, and even two West German nurses, one of which was a lovely young lady named Monika. You must admit, this was a very unusual and diverse group, but let me say it was the finest command I ever had in my 26 years of service. We were known as "Hawk's Heros."
