Kerry didn’t follow Clinton because he was competent, he is clearly dumber than a box or rock as those who followed him through his tainted career and every conceivable level.
For those who have not served in the military, medals are not worn on fatigues!
Only 120 days in-country and he puts himself in for a Purple Heart for scratches we wouldn’t bother to report to the corpsman. (Source)
The average tour of duty for Vietnam vets was 12 months. (Source)
Since Kerry was in Vietnam only 120 days, (Far short of 365) (Source)
The Silver Star is the third-highest military combat decoration that can be awarded to a member of the United States Armed Forces.
It is awarded for gallantry in action:
- While engaged in action against an enemy of the United States;
- While engaged in military operations involving conflict with an opposing foreign force; or
- While serving with friendly foreign forces engaged in an armed conflict against an opposing armed force in which the United States is not a belligerent party.
Actions that merit the Silver Star must be of such a high degree that they are above those required for all other U.S. combat decorations but do not merit award of the meet Medal of Honor or a Service Cross (Distinguished Service Cross, the Navy Cross, or the Air Force Cross). (Source)
Well, the many thousands of honorable Vietnam veterans Kerry smeared and slandered in his self-serving and much discredited testimony before Congress “know the difference.” And as a result, we have exposed him for what he is – a fraud. (Source)
U.S. Boat boarded and captured by Iran.
Boat and crew were immediately released as ruling towel heads knew they would have got the shit pounded out of them and still likely will.
This guy was punching his ticket and used a loophole [three Purple Heart wounds and you got to leave Vietnam before your required 12 month tour of duty was up] in the regulations to get out early.
What a disgrace!
The U.S. Military doesn’t award purple hearts to soldiers who intentionally shoot themselves in the foot, literally, nor issue a silver star for bravery one year after said bravery took place.
The world would have been a far better place if those who swift boated with him shot him dead.
Also for the record there is no actual image of John Kerry with Hanoi Jane, it was photo shopped, and thus a complete fake.
I don’t think anyone is too surprised by this lineup.
Or the discovery that President Trump was leaning toward not rectifying Iran’s compliance with the Obama nuke sellout. Or that McMaster and Tillerson once again played the expected diplomatic appeasement role while Bannon, Gorka and Pompeo represented American interests.
A victory for the American people as stated by Kerry?
Or a complete hose job for the future of the entire world?
Of course the Iranians have never been known to lie
Nonetheless, Trump’s State Department in the spring certified Iran was in compliance. On Monday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was supposed to certify Iranian compliance again.
Talking points were sent to columnists.
Senior administration officials briefed analysts on a conference call.
The Treasury Department was set to announce new sanctions against a number of Iranians to soften the blow for the Republican base.
Allies in Congress were given a heads-up.
There was just one problem: Donald Trump.
See the entire article below.
In meetings with his national security cabinet, the president has never been keen on Obama’s nuclear deal.
What’s more, Iran’s regional behavior has only been getting worse since his inauguration.
So just as Tillerson was preparing to inform Congress on Monday that Iran remained in compliance with what is known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, Trump called it off, according to administration officials.
He wanted to know his options and what would happen if Tillerson didn’t make the announcement.
Obviously the announcement was made.
Team Appeasement got its way on foreign policy.
A source tell us that Gorka played a crucial role in arguing for the anti-Iran side going toe to toe McMaster and Tillerson.
Administration officials tell me that National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and Tillerson have made the case that it was in the U.S. national interest to certify Iran’s compliance.
Much as it’s in our national interest to support Qatar and undermine the coalition against it. And to praise Islam.
Others in the administration, including CIA Director Mike Pompeo and senior strategist Steve Bannon, have argued against the deal.
And Iran responded by taking an American grad student hostage.
Business as usual.
