Wilkerson on Bolton:

“The man scares me to death,” Wilkerson, a retired U.S. Army colonel told MSNBC’s Ed Schultz. “He would defeat all the enemies in America and the world—and believe me they’re plentiful—and he’d do it with everyone else’s blood. John is like Dick Cheney, never served a day in his life and wouldn’t serve a day in his life … These people make me sick.”

  1. Professor Cole,
    Thanks for retired Colonel Lawrence Wilkinson’s honest comment on the neocon chickenhawks such as Cheney and Romney who love to send other citizens sons and daughters so quickly off to war.
    Having served as a medical corpsman in Vietnam, I saw the human face of war on the wounded American grunts and the wounded Vietnamese civilians.
    So it’s great when the brass like Wilkerson just tell it like it is. They are destroying our country with all their unnecessary wars and turning our democracy into the last days of the Weimar Republic.

  2. These middle aged politicians who are so willing to start a war often boast about being “tough” and “strong” and claim that the other side is “weak.” A complaint the Romney camp is making currently.

    How tough do you have to be to sit in the comfort of the White House and decide to send thousands of young people to another part of the world where they and others will do the killing and be killed? And in the meantime that resident of the White House can watch it all on TV while being served, deferred to, treated to the upmost comforts.
