Which Vietnam vet John McCain and the plagiarist Joe Biden so ardently support.
I think it ironic that the charge of incompetence and lack of preparation in being able to assume the august position of vice president is solely aimed at the charming Republican Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin. While she would not have been my choice, probably Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, Republican of Texas, should have been selected by Arizona Senator John McCain, Vietnam war criminal. I think Senator Joseph R. Biden, Democrat of Delaware, is even less competent and qualified to serve as vice president of the United States.
This warmonger voted for the Iraq War in October 2002 which was the single most important foreign policy issue of his Senatorial career. He thought there were weapons of mass destruction. He thought murder and invasion were necessary to replace a feckless President Saddam Hussein. Senator Biden’s lack of judgment in authorising Mr Bush to go to war has led to the deaths of 4,176 Americans, roughly 30,000 injured and perhaps 100,000s of Iraqi deaths. It has bankrupted the country, destroyed our reputation in the world, and was an act of Hitlerian aggression similar to the invasion of Poland on September 1, 1939 and the Low Countries in Spring 1940.
I find it deeply disturbing that Senator Barack Obama, Democrat of Illinois, who campaigned as an anti-Iraq War peace candidate versus the militant, prowar Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, Democrat of New York, would then select as his own vice-presidential running mate, a senator who voted for the war. If Senator Obama were truly opposed to the Iraq War, the defining issue of our time, he would have chosen an antiwar Democrat who shared his prescience and loathing of war. Senator Biden demonstrated incompetence, meanness and a willingness to gratuitously use military force with immoral insouciance and ethical failings.
