When the Chickenhawk was right

John Bolton is one of the shining stars of neoconism, and he is a first rate Chickenhawk.  He was absolutely correct about Vietnam:

"I confess I had no desire to die in a Southeast Asian rice paddy," Bolton wrote of his decision in his Yale 25th reunion book. "I considered the war in Vietnam already lost."

He is wrong again and again now, yet the media keeps inviting him on to spew his filth:

He will probably be on FauxNews today expanding on this tweet. I'm sure he also already applied for a waiver to join the Army to serve on the front lines.

Peace is treason in the War Empire

In the US, threatening war (Nikki Haley and Senators Graham and McCain) is praiseworthy but trying to make nice with the Russkies is criminal.  Certainly VFP has no love for Flynn but the contradiction between how he is being treated versus even worse war criminals is striking.

We the People?

Do you go to bed at night fearful of Iran or North Korea attacking you?  Do you sleep more soundly knowing how unstable Iraq and Libya are now that the US made them safe for democracy?  Who is in charge of US foreign policy?  Is it the American people?  If so, and if you really want to make the Middle East safe for democracy, please join the military personally and increase taxes to pay for the meddling, but you may want to think about the consequences and whether you are really making America safer, more free, and more prosperous.  Who benefits from our meddling?

VFP supports anthem protesters

Service member Russell Silver makes a great point:  How many of us signed up to force people to stand up for the anthem?

VFP national supports this:

How many people have to say the anthem before starting work?  Isn't booing the quiet protesters more disrespectful to the anthem than those quiet players being booed?

Finally, a great list of ways to create unity, through peace.

North Korea hates us for our freedoms?

Right.  Or do they hate us for being belligerent toward them?  And no, VFP does not support the North Korean dictator.  If the US pulled its troops out of the South, something tells me the place of the "Forgotten War" will become the "Forgotten Country".
