One Question & A Few Concerns

Where's the hypocrisy in John Kerry being anti-war? He fought in one, honorably by the way. He's a decorated war veteran. He's probably one of the few people who've actually read the .:Pentagon Papers:. He, and all other combat veterans, understand the consequences of war are only romantic when viewed on a movie screen. If anyone has an informed perspective about war it is John Kerry, not those who never fought in one.

That being said, I should also make it clear that he wasn't my pick. I know he'll have a tough row to hoe in explaining the large amount of corporate donations to his campaign. (There is never a reasonable explanation for that.) He'll also have to answer for his unquestioning support of Smirky's civil-liberties-trampling moves after September 11, 2001, which includes the Patriot Act and the invasion of Iraq. A true leader should have made more analytical and deliberate decisions, as opposed to the emotional and myopic reactions of John Kerry.
