Chickenhawk-in-Chief Makes It to Vietnam, Finally

We all knew that he wanted very badly to go there when he was younger, braver, and more patriotic, didn't we?

Well, at the end of next month, he will go to Ho Chi Min City for a SE Asia economic summit. He will try to learn how to make the US look more like SE Asia.

While he is there, I suggest some side trips for the much beloved KKKarl Rove photo ops.

(1) The Quartermaster Corps Morturary at Da Nang AFB, where bodies were identified, and processed to return to the US.

(2) The Caravelle Hotel, where you could enjoy a nice steak dinner and watch a firefight going on across the river at the same time.

(3) Pleiku Province and LZ X-Ray. Where you can get a taste for the flavor of death without putting yourself in more danger than tripping over an anthill.

(4) That black spot in the street in Hue where a Buddhist Monk self immolated on national TV to protest the incredible corruption of the US supported religious racist government in Saigon.

Yeah, Mr. War Hero/War President. Go visit these places and grow misty-eyed at what you missed when you were guarding the Texas/Oklahoma borders from the Red hoards. (That's right before you just decided to go AWOL altogether)

And just in time to be reminded before the elections too.

John,

I humbly again thank you for your service to our country. I am forever grateful you did not "opt out" like Dubya and his Dick, and so many other current war hawks.

And on a totally separate note, Chatter and I made the same mistake of switching to Beta Blogger...Chatter by accident. While you can't log in using your Blogger account, you can choose the "Other" option to include your name and web url. If it's any consolation, we can't sign into your blog because of this. sigh

"Opted out"? Like Clinton?

Thanks DocL ... I couldn't figure out what was happening or why exactly ... the genius who designs programs. If program writers designed programs like birds build houses, the first woodpecker that came along would destroy civilization.

I guess the really annoying thing for you and Ron is not to be able to delete the beta version without losing everything. I had that happen to me once and haven't downloaded a beta since.

Since I am not fond of anon posts, I think they are confusing as to who writes what I hope they get it fixed quick. I am assuming google bought out blogger?

Well, I managed to really screw up that quote. Let me try again.

If carpenters built houses like programmers build programs, then the first woodpecker that comes along will destroy civilization.

There.

I feel better now.

"Opted out" as in Clinton actually entered the draft lottery and was issued a high number? Sorry John, you probably don't wish me to feed the trolls, but these selective-memory sonsofbitches get on my last nerve.

BTW, I think Blogger Beta people can now post to both Beta & non-Beta blogs...I guess they can, 'cause I just did! Oh, and Google has always owned Blogger, just FYI. ;)

Strannix ... they do tend to have selective memories don't they? Actually according to the UCMJ what Bush did is legally defined as desertion, rather than AWOL.

The Saudi Royal Family and the bin Lauden family bailed him out of this too.

He owes them ... cheney bigtime ...

Good news about the beta ... will cruise on back to CHATTER and see if it works for me.

Incidentally, my verification for this post is kinsave ... how appropriate.

Clinton sent troops "in harms' way", yet did his damnedest to not serve. At least Kerry did.

Not that I excuse Bush, mind you - I don't like either him or Clinton. Either Clinton, for that matter.

So did you vote for Kerry, anonymous(e) or for aWol? I cannot quite remember the body count when Clinton (acting as appropriately as C-in-C, against a very hostile, partisan Congress) sent troops "into harm's way," could you remind me? Was the body count anywhere near what the Boy Emperor's overseas adventures have inflicted upon us?

Don't strain your brain, son, the answer is no. And in Clinton's Kosovo adventure, if I remember correctly, the mission truly was accomplished.

Strannix,

If we "shouldn't" be in Iraq, then we also had no business going to Kosovo. We need to stop doing that, period. Screw it, we can't go around being Hall Monitor to the entire damned world.

For those with KKKarl Rove's finger up there ass, consider:

Body bag count: Serbia/Bosnia, Clinton = zero

Iraq, Bush = over 2,700 officially

Milosovich in the Haigue being tried fairly by the World Count.

Saddam in Baghdad being tried by a kangeroo US controlled court hwere if a judge makes a decision that we don't like gets fired until we can find a more compliant one.

Kosovo/Bosnia/Serbia wounded, fewer than 100, mostly from accidents = Clinton

Iraq wounded, 20,000 including many head injuries, loss of limbs and other lifetime disabilities = Bush

Budget of Veterans Medical System down by $1 billion = Bush

If I remember correctly, and I do, we were invited to intervene in Kosovo, and in doing so engendered much good faith around the world; I know this for a fact, as I was in Europe when the first troops went. There is legitimate use for US military power in foreign affairs, but Iraq is definitely an example of illegitimate use.

And, John, your by-the-numbers breakdown? Brilliant!
