Welcome to Free Republic.
You joined today to post that insult?
You are conflating John McCain’s service record with his career after he retired from the Navy.
I am a Vietnam vet, and I am not offended by his service.
What did you do during the war?
Service record? Like putting the Forrestal out of service for a few months? Haha
When McCain crosses the isle we do so want to see Mabel Albertson sitting aside ready to trip him; following him, ready to trip him again. Much like the scene in What’s Up Doc. To see John fall flat on his face would be a pic to treasure. Juan and only Juan should be committed before he hurts someone.
“..I am a Vietnam vet, and I am not offended by his service.”
Welcome home, Marine, and thank you.
“...”...You are conflating John McCains service record with his career after he retired from the Navy....”
McCain the US Navy Pilot was long time ago, but I respect any man who wore the uniform. For that and that alone I have respect for him. But it ends there.
McCain the politician has done nothing except cross the aisle and help the people with almost the same ideology that imprisoned and tortured him.
Remember how he reacted when our side actually TRIED to fight Obama during the campaign? He freaked and called us racists.
I fully believe that they had Russian and ChiCom as well as NV folks working him over to make him compliant. Any man would break under that kind of pressure.
As 2ndDivisionVet pointed out a few posts up, McCain’s old man was CINCPAC, so he WAS a valuable bargaining chip as a POW. And if they could turn him, more the better.
Do you, having been there, knowing what you personally know of that time and that enemy, think he was turned? I wasn’t there, so I’ll never know...but one thing is for sure; this guy NEVER misses an opportunity to stick it to us and help the enemy out, and eagerly so.
What other explanation is there?
