John McCain understands war
I've been hearing people say that they intend to vote for McCain because he "understands war". What he understood was flying off of a carrier, making a bombing run and landing in time for beer. He was the son and grandson of Admirals in the US Navy and he was looking forward to a military career. He may or may not have conducted himself honorably as a prisoner, but that doesn't make him an expert on war. His experience of war was impersonal. He fought for his career. He can kiss my ass.
Here's a different view of a war that McCain didn't know about and didn't care about. In addition to 58,000 Americans killed in Vietnam, 4,000,000 Vietnamese died. That's four MILLION.
