John Kerry: “Troops will be poor, black, and prone to war crimes (and stupid!)”

John Kerry (who served in Vietnam, FYI) has always bashed the military. This nonsense about “Ohhh! But why would a respected veteran criticize the military?” is, well, nonsense.

Back in 1972 Kerry wrote the following:

I am convinced a volunteer army would be an army of the poor and the black and the brown

We must not repeat the travesty of the inequities present during Vietnam. I also fear having a professional army that views the perpetuation of war crimes as simply ‘doing its job.’

His spokesman, David Wade, explained this uncomfortable quote:

Kerry’s spokesman, David Wade, said Wednesday the historical document needed to be viewed in the era in which it was written but that it nonetheless raised a “bedrock question in a time of war when sacrifice should be shared by all Americans.”

The problem is that Kerry and the rest of the left-wing anti-war crowd are dead wrong. The military isn’t poor, black, prone to war crimes, or stupid (as if there is anything wrong with being poor or black in the first place).

    Exceptional, I passed this on to a workmate of mine, and he actually bought me lunch because I found this for him, so let me rephrase: Thanks for lunch.
