McCain's tortured views
This fact, that his genetic military being and his 'tortured' view of what the military and diplomatic lessons of Vietnam are should disqualify McCain from America's commander in chief position.
McCain's views on Vietnam are antiquarian and dumb; tactically, politically and in relation to sound foreign policy. Even in hindsight he is rigid and wrong. He was wrong on Iraq. He remains so and is quite suspect as a leader who does not exhibit understanding that the big picture is so much more than setting off to battle because we can.
