TSF is talking the sell out at Munich which proved to Hitler that the west was in disarray. From that point in time the conflict was inevitable. It went very badly for the tens of millions of people around the world.

is correct, that orange criminal is giving Putin to go invade NATO countries and would lead to a catastrophic and deadly event not only for Ukraine, but, the whole of Europe.

TFG has a history of being against veterans & the military, and our country. I’m curious, are there any legitimate military groups that support him?

Not about Wesley Clark.

Wesley Clark is someone I greatly admire and at one point hoped he’d run for President. I’m still a fan.

Sorry to get mixed up here. Guess the donald has too much sway over my mind.

I don't think he had the killer instinct to be in politics, but I'm convinced with the right people around him he would have been a successful president.

He is right up there with people like John Lewis and John Kerry. His words carry gravitas and authority.

I contributed to Wes Clarks Presidential run. We need to pay attention to him.

Is that why what’s-his-name looks so pouchy and bloated and unhealthy these days? Even with the pancake makeup on most of his face?

Ever notice how his hands never match his face, color-wise?

Putin puppet.

I am so sick and tired of the media's bothsierisms.

There is only one person running who tried to overthrow the government, and it is time to call him out at least as strongly as you did with Kerry's swift boat garbage and Hillary's supposed email scandal.

the college would have a guest speaker (this is DoD). One year it was General Clark. I'd already read a lot of what he'd written, as well as the points and lessons where he'd be mentioned in the school year. So when word went out that we administration people were welcome to sit in on his lecture, I jumped at the chance. Afterwards, I got to meet and shake hands with him. I found him to be a "real" person... authentic... no put on about him. I really liked him from a personal standpoint. There were many things to which he was far to the right of me, but that was to be expected, given our environment. I wanted to gauge the degree to which the hype measured up against the man. Screw the hype. I really liked the man!
