“I have heard are pathetic when you compare them to his years of of service to this country”
What service are you talking about. Being drafted with hundreds of thousands of others and going to Vietnam for less than a year? And the minute he got back started badmouthing the war likt all good little liberals do? Or the few years he had as US senator siding with democrats and bashing Bush for eight long years? Hagel is a disgrace as a republican and has the intelligence of a third grader. I would suspect his garbled words and acting punch drunk, to go along with the baggy ass eyes, are from years of snorting that white stuff up his nose, or drinking a fifth of Jack a day. Anyone that thinks this character will be calling the shots at the Def Dept are sadly mistaken. He was put there to bash Israel and kiss Iran’s ass. No other reason. We are the laughing stock of the world with the American-hating Marxist as president, the America-hating traitor Lurch Kerry as Sec of State and now the punch drunk Pvt. Goober Bagel as Sec of Defense. Putin laughs himself to sleep.
You got a lot of history to look at man. That war was deemed illegal by Robert Mc Namra, Secretary of Defense, in charge of the Viet Nam war. There has also been an admission that the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution was a fabrication to promote the war. As far as bashing Bush, articles of impeachment were brought against him by the US Congress and charged him with misleading the country into the Iraq War. There are many countries waiting to charge, Bush, with war crimes, for which there are no statutes of limitations. When I said Hagel’s service to the country was outstanding, that did not mean that his war service was his only means of serving the American people
