McCain was tortured and still today cannot raise his arms above shoulder level. He did what he had to do to survive.

YOU would have done the same thing to survive in that Vietnamese prison camp.

I can't believe you guys dare to put conditions on a persons military service just because you have a different political opinion.

That is just wrong!

Ever hear of a famous rev war hero by the name, General Arnold ? Just like mcjuan ... One is rotting in hell, the other is on stand-by. Both are traitors!

Some of you guys are either draft dodging libertarians or 13 years old?

Yes McCain is a piss poor excuse for a republican politician, but don't besmirch his military service because of it.

And while McCain was in the hands of the North Vietnamese, Clinton was what - studying in England - and Bush the Younger was enrolled in the Texas Air National Guard which could have been sent to Vietnam.

All of which appears irrelevant to their performances as elected politicians "representing" their constituents.

Logically contradicts this:

But you already knew that because your are brilliant political satirist. And, as always, I salute you.

Neither served honorably
That's complete BS and you know it. Your squad may have talked big smack about how tough you'd be if interrogated but you certainly didn't go through a formal training program. Even those who go through SERE aren't taught to fight it until their death.

Before you get on your high horse, you're not the only combat vet around here.

I would really like for you to back this up or retract it.

As for the OP, Joe should stick to plumbing.

There has been, and is some doubt about the character McCain maintained while a POW. There is no proof that he was a collaborator, and there is no proof that he wasn't.

Just as no proof that Saddam Hussein had WMD's, doesn't necessarily mean he didn't. We do know that he has had WMD's and has used them.

I think the term "collaborator" certainly can be applied to his character as a politician. This doesn't mean that his lack of character as a politician means he had a lack of character in service to our country.......but, it does make one wonder.

I did that a long time ago.

Military service does NOT give one a pass to be lifelong d-bag afterwards. His account is overdrawn in my opinion.

As we often point out in religion threads, you can't "prove he didn't" so the burden is on somebody claiming he did.

The premise to this is asinine at best. Would the writer do the same to Kerry for burning his medals, a far worse act in my book.

If McCains daddy and grandaddy weren't admirals we would never have heard of John McCain. That he divorced his wife that stuck with him through his pow time to marry a rich woman to launch his political career showes what he is.

That he was responsible for McCain-Feingold that was ruled unconstitutional is another showing of his caracter.

He is a worthless SOB of epic proportions, but the house and senate is infested with like minded people.

May he rot in hell in a burning pool of jet fuel.

IIRC, when the NVA found out about McCain's family they offered to send him home on the next plane. McCain recognized that for the propaganda ploy it was. The NVA would send him home so they could counter the claims of their inhumanity. The world conversation would be diverted from releasing all the prisoners to the NVA's humane gesture of sending McCain home. McCain refused to leave until all the prisoners taken before him were released. You may not like him as a politician, but that was an honorable move.

If I'm not mistaken, Kerry threw no medals you couldn't buy over the fence. There are medals you cannot buy, but there are the three ribbons everyone gets, which anyone can purchase the medal that represents those ribbons.

Collaboration with the enemy during war, and in the enemy's camp is on the same level as throwing some meaningless campaign medals and National Defense Medal over a fence......? Not in my book.

I can't answer that question, but I'm not convinced his integrity was unquestionable back then.........mainly because his integrity as a politician is certainly questionable now.......

McCain's still pissed that he picked a bad running mate and lost to the worst president this country has had. Really how would you feel if you lost to obama?

There's something wrong with so many people in Washington on both sides.
