Neocons dont like smart guys like John Kerry. Mr. Kerry served his nation in combat, then when he didnt like what he saw..spoke out. That is a real American, fight for your rights, then speak your mind. Instead the cons look up to the chickenhawk draft dodgers, and denegrate real war heros like Max ClelanD, John Kerry, Tammy Duckworth, and Gray Davis.

But did LBJ, McNamara, or Nixon ever have their picture taken occupying a Communist anti-aircraft gun while looking for the "blue-eyed enemy"?

McCarthy my ass? McCarty only looked for communists,....Hanoi Jane was a communist sympathizer and a traitor to her fellow Americans.

Nobody denegrate's Kerry for serving his country. They denegrate him for lying about his service and more recently trying to avoid paying his taxes while arguing for higher taxes for others.

Fonda stood next to anti-aircraft guns, which the North Vietnamese placed next to hospitals and schools, that shot down and killed Americans. What she did was inexcusable.

No doubt about it, and I agree. That however does not change the fact that Kerry is a lying dirt bag of a human being.
Because some bank robbers shoot hostages doesn't make me a good guy if I only threaten to do it. kerry told stories to gain himself political favor. Men who served with him contested Kerry's version of events. That is what my issues are with John Kerry. You don't slander your fellow vets unless you can back it up and can show that you tried to stop what you alleged to have seen. he then changed his story from witnessed to heard about it. Small difference he was still compelled to act upon it and failed to do so.

No college educated officers over there? No college educated enlisted? None served because they felt the call to duty? Only rejects? Right, Gotcha.
Ask a doctor what he thinks of Naval doctors. I'll tell you what mine said. They are some of the most highly trained and skilled doctors anywhere.
Kerry is a sack of dung.

Whish is it? Did he witness / hear about said misdeeds or not? At any rate either way he would have been compelled by the UCMJ to report it. He didn't report it. Either way he is slime.
That he did not report it at the time does not mean it did not occur. This is a bit like arguing that because a woman did not report abuse of her children at the time, the abuse must not have occurred. After all, she has a legal responsibility to report such abuse. Brilliant logic.

Contrary to your contention, my guess is that Kerry recanted because we have an inordinate number of people in this country whose emotions are so invested in our war machine that striking anything but a fawning posture towards the military complex is seen as unpatriotic and unappreciative. How many places in this country can you come forward and contend that the military inevitably begets a certain percentage of sociopathic, sadistic degenerates who prey upon foreign civilian populations? Yeah, that goes over real well.
