    Default What would McCain be doing now if he were not from admiral's family?

    He would be debating with his friends whether he would get the $600 rebate check in a few months. Catch my drift?

    I am not a McCain fan, he is okay, but I am not a huge fan. That said, for a man who was offered to be released from a Prisoner of War camp because his father was an Admiral, I find this thread disrespectful, especially when John McCain refused to be released when so many other American troops were still being held prisoner who had been in the POW camp longer than he. If you don't like his policies, fine, attack them, but when talking about his relationship with his father, recognize that McCain gave up a lot to not take advantage of who his father was.

    Ok McCain might be a hero in your own American twisted way of nominating war heroes but please don't tell me a man that becomes a hero by refusing to leave the prison is somehow as a result qualified in anything related to leading a country. The war in Vietnam was a disaster for America and for Asia. McCain's actions mean nothing when you look at the general picture.

    Do you want a President who will send thousands to die and millions to kill but will go all the way to save a few hundred? I say this because McCain's only regret was that Americans didn't WIN in Vietnam and that more north Vietnamese were not killed. He has no conscience of what a terrible thing he was involved in. As far as he is concerned he was promoting FREEDOM!

    Yeah. Why would he want to win a war that he was involved in? What a crazed degenerate.

    His actions as a POW were incredibly brave. It does not matter what cause he was fighting for, I am sure there were heroic and noble actions by Nazi soldiers in WWII. How he acted and what he sacrificed is the definition of heroism. To think otherwise is just ignorance.

    Not really a war. A murderous crusade!

    Big a war is a fight between two or more countries to put it in it's simplest form. In hindsite Vietnam was probably a mistake, but make no mistake there were hero's in that war and on both sides of the fight.

    A murderous crusade to me implies what Stalin did to his own people, what Saddam did against the kurds, what Hitler did the Jews. Just to name a few in the past century.
