John Kerry and John McCain keep on reminding us that they’ve been to war (in Vietnam), and that they know the horrors of war… and that thus that’s why we should trust that they would never involve the US in a unnecessary war. Look Mr. Kerry and Mr. McCain, I’m glad you served your country… as a foot soldier and as a bomber pilot respectively. That does not automatically make you experts on anything (other than knowing how to fire a rifle and drop bombs), particularly not geopolitics or the Middle East. You are both career politicians. Therein lies your true expertise.
