Vietnam veterans and Iraq veterans have a lot in common.

Neither war was popular with the public. The soldiers were not to blame for either war. It was the political leadership of this country that decided we should be in both of those wars. Mostly, the people respected the troops that fought in both wars. However, they lost a lot of respect for our leaders.

Neither was perceived to be a just or necessary war. Each of them tore at the fabric or our being as a nation. If a country gets three strikes before they are out, we now have two strikes against us. We must be very careful about getting into another land war.

Democrat or Republican, the decision to vote for the Commander in Chief may be the most important vote of our lifetimes? We should put the lives of our troops at risk as a last resort. That is the position that our Commander in Chief should hold. That is the position that shows who really cares about the welfare of our troops.

Those that are too quick to send our troops into a land war should be avoided like the plague.

1. As a Vietnam vet, I have to disagree. Never heard a "thank you for your service" until 1991.

That was after the first Gulf War. That "thank you" was pushed as a way to score by politicians. I never wanted to be thanked and neither did most that served in Vietnam, or Korea, or WWII. Most people did not, and still do not respect Vietnam vets. It is like PTSD just started with the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Nobody lost a limb either, evidently. Nobody screamed about the way the VA treated us. Yeah, it is the same now as it was 45 years ago - regardless of what you might hear on the news. I'm not bitter, just feel the need to remind people that there are many forgotten veterans.

Your fellow travelers, idiot, and I couldn't care less where you allegedly served.  You're a f*cking idiot.

2. Since Hillary voted to invade iraq, I dont think your post makes sense.

Hillary was too quick to send our troops into a land war.

Not going to go over too well at the Romper Room.

That would come as a surprise to many Vietnam veterans! They were demonized as "baby killers" by the "Peace Movement". They were demonized as dangerous crazies by the "news" and entertainment media.

kt isn't posting political insight, he's just parroting one of the current Hate-Trump narratives. Just as I'm sure he parroted in 1980 the line that Reagan was a warmonger who would cause WW3. With the same accuracy.

Didn't Billy "bentwilly" Clinton send a bunch of US soldiers to Kosovo?
Somalia?
Bosnia?
Iraq?
