I'll expect your derision for every other Senator, Representative, Cabinet member and all members of government who haven't seen active duty any minute now. Because only those who have fought can be credible on the issue. There's no way for anyone else to be intelligent on the issue.
In fact, people can only be credible speakers on issues they themselves have experienced firsthand. No other learning will do. There goes the career of every historian. Damn.
