Ah, that's right when he shot the fleeing kid in the loin cloth in the back

Yes, and when he touted his home movie camera around reshooting his dramatized reenactments of his version of events, much to the chagrin of his fellow soilders.

Then using these " self made reenactment home-made movies" at DNC national convention, 30 years later.

War Hero..hmmm.

you know I am SOOOOOO sick of Bush supporters saying that Kerry doesnt deserve his awards. AT LEAST HE WENT TO VIETNAM!!!! Which is more than we can say for the spoiled brat of a president we have. Wanna talk cowards? He is one! And to think that his father had the nerve to say that Bill Clinton was a draft dodger and less of a man because he didnt go when his own son shirked off his duty as well.

I take it you were critical of Clinton on this basis in '92....

actually I kinda was nbc, I still supported clinton but I felt rather saddened by the fact that he didnt serve. However, if I was a poor kid that got a scholarship to go to school I know I would have gone that route over getting my head blown off in a jungle as well.

nbc, lemme say that I like debating these issues with you. I only get irked when you pull off one of your famous one-liners. I admit that I've been guilty of that too though

Because it was soooooo much harder for Bush to defend Texas from what? The Mexicans? Were the Mexicans attacking us? Wow, then thank gawd Bush showed up for duty in the national guard and flew all those years -- except the years he didn't fly because supervisors took away his flying privledges. Oh, and the time he never showed up for his physical. Oh, and the time he never showed up in Alabama for duty or Massachusetts for duty. But other than that.......Go America! Beat the crap out of Mexico!

Wow, I am sure those statements just made all the weekend warriors happy. They must be thinking "Wow, is my service that worthless". Personally, I am sick of the debate from both sides. Nam was 35 years ago when both men were young and things can change over time, right?
