Rick Perry has made clear to the American people that he not only is an ignorant fool, but will say anything in order to obtain votes from right wing conservatives. He was addressing a conservative audience in South Carolina when Perry attacked the Obama administration over its handling of videos which depict US Marines urinating over the dead bodies of Taliban soldiers. “What’s really disturbing to me is the over-the-top rhetoric from this administration and their disdain for the military.”
Senator John McCain, a Vietnam war hero who was tortured by Viet Cong soldiers, responded to Perry’s comments. “The Marine Corps prides itself that we don’t lower ourselves to the level of the enemy. So it makes me sad more than anything else… I can’t tell you how wonderful these Marines are. And it hurts their reputation and image.”
I regret to inform the Texas fool that the US has signed the Geneva Conventions which makes illegal any desecration of enemy dead bodies.
