Skip to comments.McCain and Kerry: Obama's Syria surrogates
Posted on 09/07/2013 9:38:17 PM PDT by Viennacon
Indeed, both Kerry and McCain do understand what going to war means: They are Vietnam veterans, with Purple Hearts, Silver Stars and other medals, and the crucible of combat has shaped their respective legislative careers. But anyone watching the hearing or the interactions between the two men and their president as they press for the intervention couldn't help but marvel at how they got there. John McCain, the secretary of state said, is someone who understands "what going to war means."
Kerry and McCain are President Obama's top surrogates advocating for a U.S. strike on the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad. It's a role for which they are both well suited, but not one that either originally envisioned playing. If personal experience of war is a common bond between them, so, too, is presidential ambition. Both men sought the job of commander-in-chief. Now, they are helping Obama with arguably the biggest foreign policy decision Congress will make since the Iraq War vote in 2002

Has Kerry ever explained how he got three Purple Hearts without ever spending a day in sick bay?
Flying Double Bag Barf Alert Article.
Kerry was/is/ever will be a Traitor.
McCain = Insane, but I will not speak what I think of him otherwise.
McCain is a failed disturbed man. Kerry is desperate to become President. He knows that if he can force a regime change in Syria that will deny Iran bases for its short range ballistic missiles, he will get the support he needs to overcome Clinton. Kerry is a dangerous, ambitious narcissist.
Do you really think that bag of di8cks will run again after the disaster that was 2004? It takes a special kind of retard to lose the popular vote to Tokyo Rove’s campaign team.
I can explain it. He lied.
Why wasn’t Graham mentioned.
Grahamnesty has become a sideshow. Dick Lugar syndrome setting in.
McCain clipped power lines in Spain and crashed a plane in Corpus Christi. Any other pilot would have “washed out” at that point. But McCain’s old man was an admiral and that saved him. It’s ironic that his father saved his career just long enough for him to get shot down and captured.
And he knows all about war? He was on his first ship for one month and was on his fifth mission off his second ship when he was shot down. He really didn’t have that much experience at actual war. A lot more than I did but I’m not claiming to be an expert.
The same goes with Kerry. He went on the swift boats because they weren’t used in combat. After he got there Admiral Zumwalt change their missions. Kerry got three scratches and was sent home.
Where is Cindy Shehan, when you need her, to expose these two. Where is the Washington Post, who recorded their anti-war postures but is not approving their Pro-War posture??
Boo Hiss on the media for not catching them in this hypocracy.
Cindy was arrested by:
