well you are so quick to condemn Kerry who risked his life on many occasion during that war- he was wounded, ... you blew it off so quickly that he wasn't a decorated veteran, I figured you knew all about the war.... how despicable it was and the ones who spoke out like Kerry after he returned were given the same treatment as Cindy Sheehan- "you're not patriotic!!", "love it or Leave it", "my country right ot wrong", "you're aiding the enemy"......, same old shhit we hear today. IF you'd lived then you'd recognize it in a heart beat, skul.<br><br>HISTORY DOES repeat itself..Skul--- Iraq is our new Vietnam.<br> little to nothing good will come from this war either - I think we've passed that mark- Bush et al just doesn't want to admit it... and they do NOT know how to gracefully withdraw without looking foolish. But like Nam, they stay in and sacrifice more innocent lives, to pull a CYA ! ..same as Nixon did !<br><br>and our "balless" leader won't even spend 20-30 min with a bereaved mother. His PR handler should be fired... a short meeting 7-10 days ago could have saved him big grief. Like Iraq he's dug in so deep, he can't get his arse out.<br><br>Bottom Line: don't slam a veteran of a war unless you know a helluva alot about the war. Kerry was a war hero even if you think he was a leftie... that doesn't negate his war service. Wars are not fought and won by only conservatives... they ARE fought and won by Americans.
- all mixes.<br>The fact some tried to slander Kerry's service because of his political beliefs is an atrocity.. shameful, disgraceful... above all Kerry fought ON the battlefield -facing the enemy, and should be treated as a respected veteran.<br><br>Crap the same azzholes slandered McCain in 2000 when he ran... tell me Mc Cain isn't a respectable veteran.. they also did the same in 2002 to Max Cleland who lost limbs in Nam... some said he wasn't patriotic enough..
the guy lost legs and an arm in our service, and he's not patriotic F-CK !! what kinda delerious BS is that !! <br>they'll slander ANYONE who doesn't fit their far-right mold.<br>I'd be concerned who I backed... you won't look too good when they fold.<br><br>David (OFI)<br>
