Oh really? How many military campaigns has Kerry commanded? How many companies or battalions has he even commanded? Bush has been the commander-in-chief during the War on Terrorism. I don't doubt that Kerry knows more about veteran's affairs, but on upper-level leadership experience Bush has the edge. Kerry seems to shift blame for all of his decision on others. When he didn't vote for the $87 billion for our troops in Iraq he said it was because of the way about $20 million are going to be spent. You can't have a perfectly-packaged decision to make. You have to make a decision and stand by it, with explanations and not excuses.
What is REAL military experience of Bush?

Bush is "successfully" losing his war against Terrorism.

2. Kerry is more experienced in military questions than Bush. Question was to compare only real candidates to the President, not all possible generals and politicians.
I think you've been drinking too much vodka, man!

Do you know what you're talking about? Did you know what I was talking about? Did you know what I meant? Or are you speaking from your vast indoctrinated experience?:rolleyes:

I prefer beer - :).

Yes, I am not specialist who is Kerry. I know some data about his Vietnam past. And I read pair of his articles, it were Great articles.

But it is clear for me that Bush is very bad military leader who is losing his war.

Do you think great leaders in wartime are always ones with real extensive military experience? I don't think so.

Take for example Margaret Thatcher. As I seem to remember the UK won the 1982 Falklands War.

Look at FDR and WW2

Or David Ben Gurion and the 1967 Six Day War.

That mindset of yours is flawed.:crazy:

You are wrong.

Most people see threat for them in ACTIONS of America. If they will see that America doesn't want to force them to do anything they will stop to be enemies of America.

Peaceful President of America means large decreasing of American enemies.
That is a very loopy, naive assumption on your part. Do you actually believe that?:rolleyes:

May be, you are right.

But fact that Kerry fought in combat means that Kerry knows more about real "soldiers" truth of war.

And, as I remember, first Bush, father of current president, used very widely fact that he was pilot of torpedo-bomber during WWII and that he took part in combats and even was shot down during mission.

I am not specialist in cluster bombs. They used word "cluster bomb" and spoke about yellow packets (it is my translation from Russian) with explosives which are inside of such bomb in large amount. They spoke that they saw these yellow packets which didn't blow.

Re. Bush Snr...

That guy did not complete the job of Getting rid of Saddam, I must say.

I could imagine Schwarzkopf and his legendary temper at this...

They are even naming a ship after Bush Snr, the last of the 10 Nimitz class carriers. I think that's a bad idea.

Yes, it is my opinion and opinion of many people in my country.

If it is not so how can you explain that most Russians support US directly after 9/11 events (result of Gallup Poles) but now most part of Russians doesn't believe for US and Nato (result of Gallup Pole)?

Father of current president was clever man and understood that occupation can be result of struggle against occupants and real catastrophe.

Bush Snr fought together with ALL other world, OTHER countries paid money for his war, Bush Snr made his task - he decreased military power of Iraq and Iraq was not threat for neighbor countries more.

Bush Jnr fought practically alone, he spent huge AMERICAN money, he lost many allies. Image of America was so bad like now only during Vietnam war.

And Iraq events didn't finish yet...

I completely confirm that results of that polls are 100% right. In this questions Russian public opinion was practically united, not like in USA now when population is divided on 2 equal parts with opposite opinions.

In one last talk-show Russian public asked on question "Do Americans must to go out from Iraq?" Yes -89%, No - 11%.

And it is true image of Russian public opinion.

Americans are a pretty independent-minded ppl with their own opinions. That's part of the culture.

If you believed the polls then it would have been Howard Dean and not John Kerry who would be the Democrats primary presidential candidate.
