"The image of Jane Fonda, Barbarella, Henry Fonda's daughter...sitting on an enemy aircraft gun was a betrayal...the largest lapse of judgment that I can even imagine," – Jane Fonda on 60 Minutes April 3, 2005
A 19-year-old soldier lucky
enough to have down time from patrolling the jungle, sitting in his sandbag
reinforced hooch way inside the concertina wire somewhere in
To think that only yesterday
I was cheerful, bright and gay.
Looking forward to well wouldn’t do
The role I was about to play
But as if to knock me down
Reality came around
And without so much, as a mere touch
Cut me into little pieces
Leaving me to doubt – Gilbert O’Sullivan, Alone Again (Naturally)
Yes Jane, the poetry of Uncle Ho - that’s what he needed. When he arrived home, a disillusioned war scarred teenager, you welcomed him with chants of baby killer. Instead of helping him recover from the scars of war, thanking him for his service and welcoming him back home, you plied him with guilt. Too often, he turned toward drugs and alcohol seeking the comfort he didn’t get from you. He often didn’t come back from his self-doubt. You stole his youth; you stole his glory; you stole his service to his country. For that, you’re proud. For a picture, you’re sorry.
Talk about God and His mercy
Or if He really does exist
Why did He desert me in my hour of need
I truly am indeed Alone again, naturally
Just to make sure you really know who Jihad Jane is and you’re not taken in by her latest public relations campaign:
Jihad Jane had plenty of allies in those days. The Vietnam Veterans against the War, a group of which many were complete frauds, received funding from her. I’m sure you’ve heard of their well known spokesman, John Kerry. Who by the way is a protégé of Ted Kennedy’s from then until now. It’s important to know that the people who would be running our country are close allies in action and ideology to Jihad Jane.

In a veggie oil powered bus, Hanoi Jane plans to become Jihad Jane – an Al-Jazzeera cover girl. “I’m coming out”, she says, and bringing with her a “lot of baggage” from her Hanoi Jane days. JJ, please give some thought to the route you’ll take, and who accompanies you on your trip. Let me offer some suggestions that’ll make the tour a hit with Soldiers and Veterans:
This time, instead of posing with the enemy on a gun emplacement, I suggest that you find a nice Improvised Explosive Devise (IED) on which to sit. Hey, here’s a thought. We can turn your bus into one. This idea I’m sure will be popular with Soldiers and Veterans. We’ll sell them lottery tickets to see who gets to dial the cell phone number to your bus’ IED.
For your route, I suggest
Some potential good may come from your trip. The manufacturers of Hanoi Jane Urinal Targets will likely see an upsurge in demand for their product. I think I’ll invest some of my military retirement check with one of them.
"I can't go into any detail except to say that it's going to be pretty exciting," she said. Yep, Jane, I’m thinking it just might be.
