Kerry is a traitor.
He abandoned his comrades with a few phony wounds, and then came home to aid the enemy for his own political gain.
He's been de-moralizing our troops and aiding our enemies ever since by voting against funding for our military and making treasonous statements about bogus WMD lies.
He should release all the information on barock, the yellow's leaving our brave SEALs in Benghazi to die and stop appeasing the Iranians.
no one was left to die in Benghazi. haven't you danced on those brave americans' graves enough?

hard to believe you re still repeating those proven lies. the only reason for doing so would be you have no honor or shame...

I know guys with actual purple hearts from Vietnam.

One is deaf in one ear and has pockmarks all over his face from a hand grenade.

One looks like a kids toy train set when he takes his shirt off to go swimming from all the stitches that it to put him back together. One of his arms is almost useless.

They can't windsurf, snow ski or play ice hockey.

They don't enable our enemies like Hanoi john either.

You can not change their mindset regardless of facts. Same with the IRS supposed scandal, which was also debunked, yet they continue on that line as well.

Arms manufacturers? You honestly think this war was started to supplement arms manufacturers? Very foolish.

And what natural resources does Vietnam have that are vital to American interests? Elaborate if possible.

Many countries make and sell arms like France, China, India but in order to sell you have to show the customers how destructive your weapons can be. The Vietnam war served that purpose for the American arms industry. Thanks to the Vietnam war, the American arms manufacturers have sold lots of arms war planes etc.. to the world.

Vietnam has oil. Mobil oil company had found oil off the southern coast of Vietnam and had invested 100 million dollars in oil exploration in south Vietnam back in February 1975.

Let's look more in depth;

No, oil was not a factor in our involvement. Some in depth reading would behoove you.

We already knew full well how destructive our weaponry was well before this venture. So your claim is blatantly ludicrous.

Although oil was known to be there as far back as the Hoover Administration, this was by no means a precursor of war.

So tell us why did the US get involved,and please don't tell us it was about freedom and democracy.
