But if that person serves with honor, which Bush did, that is still infinitely better than what Kerry was guilty of.
So someone dodging the draft and combat is far far better then a person who is a wounded combat Vet?????????
Being wounded does not make up for participating in one of the biggest frauds ever perpetrated upon Vietnam vets, that being something called Winter Soldier, and then going to testify before Congress to slander every Vietnam vet with false information.
If a combat vet dare to disagree with your world view he is somehow less then a draft dodger who family influence were used to place him in a nice safe position?
I would not view serving in the National Guard as being a draft dodger. A draft dodger would be more applicable to somebody named Bill Clinton. It is my personal opinion that even if a string was pulled to get Bush II into the National Guard, his father was more than a hero to make up for it, and besides that, Bush II served with distinction and honor and would have gone to Vietnam if his units and aircraft had been called on to do so.
It also become an honorable action to attack the vet not for his positions and words after he returned from combat but instead to help fund a slander campaign as you had stated you had done concern his service in combat.
We have a far different view of what is honorable and what is not it would seem.
Slander was the activity Kerry has been involved in, and the Swift Boat vets had every right to rebut what they believed to be false and fraudulant. Without going into all of that history again, I reviewed all of their information and also as someone intimately familiar with combat situations in Vietnam, I judged Kerry to be a phony fraud, and thus I have no regrets about donating to the Swift Boat cause. By the way, Kerry has persisted in insulting combat vets even during the Iraq war, insinuating that if they joined the military to find themselves sent to Iraq, they were too dumb or lazy to do anything else, and then accusing them of terrorizing women and children in the dead of night in Iraq. I've had it with the ilk of John Kerry.
