Well, I wasn't speaking of just veterans as a whole.  I was speaking specifically of those who have acquitted themselves with valor and distinction in combat.  Most - albeit not all - of them tend to be a cut above the average person you meet.


Well I HAVE been to combat, , and i can tell you you're reading way too much into it. You may have some grandiose idea that it somehow changes you or gives you some magical, divine knowledge that makes one qualified to run an entire country, but believe me, it doesn't.

That is something lifelong bureaucrats like Obama and Bill Clinton can never appreciate.

Why don't you just cut through the chase and say outright that you choose combat service as your measuring stick because the current Republican candidate has seen combat service, and the current and recent Democrats have not? I'm not sure what you have been watching, but nowhere have I seen Palin come off as intelligent. Maybe in comparison to George W, but that doesn't say much. And for the record, I was a republican until about halfway through Ws second term, I voted for him twice, so don't accuse me of blindly following either party.

True, I have known some folks, both in my active duty time and since I got out, who do not seem to be improved one whit by their service to our country.  But many are, especially when they have been tried in the fires of combat and come out mentally intact.  War is a bitter crucible, and many good men melt in it . . . but others are tempered to become more than they ever would have otherwise.
Some real nice language there, Indiana, though retorts by Akiratubo and Ghouk are valid if not funny.  I learned a valuable lesson reading the last few comments.  Never take yourself too seriously.   Smile

This is what I was wondering as well. I have never heard anything remotely intelligent come out of her mouth. Im amazed and quite frankly dumbfounded by people who say things like this. 

oh and McCain was a hot head.

That, my friend, will never happen (again) on this forum.  Anyone who's been here 18 or so months or longer knows how admired Indiana is (our resident "bonehead" and I know Indy will get me) who has "acquitted himself" always as a considerate gent.

They never got married, and as I understand it, no, they are not together.

Ghouck - it has little to do with the last election; that's over and done with till next time.

I think the bottom line is that I am a romantic idealist and you are a cynical skeptic.  Nuthin' bad about either position, but it will invariably lead us to opposite conclusions.

I hold myself properly scolded.

However, I will say this - the guys that won WW2 are STILL The Greatest Generation.


Period.

Greater than the guys that won the Revolutionary War?  Or would you care to revise your statement?  BounceGiggle

No, I'll stick by it.  Our founders created a great nation.  But the WW2 generation saved the world, pure and simple, from the greatest danger it has ever faced.  And they paid a much more bitter price in blood.

I'm assuming you mean all the ally troops and not just the US ones...

Specifically, I was referring to the U.S. troops.  The Brits were incredibly brave and definitely kept the fight going when no one else was in it, but they were hanging on by their fingernails and couldn't have won the war without help.  The Russians paid the biggest butcher's bill of all, and might have eventually crushed Hitler, but they were fighting for a system just as monstrous and evil as Nazisim, and for a leader who frankly made Hitler look like an amateur.  All three sides were necessary, however.  America could not have won alone.  But it was American participation that gave the victory the shape that it took.

No American GI's, no victory in World War II.  No Brits, no victory in World War II.  No Russians, possibly no victory in World War II.  It was British courage, Russian blood, and American steel combined that crushed fascism.
