The swiftboat thing was utterly absurd, looking on from Europe. A guy who lead men in the Vietnam War, getting three (!) Purple Hearts for it, was portrayed as a weak coward, while his draft-dodging opponent was portrayed as a hero.

And he didn't draft dodge for noble and moral reasons, like being against the war or refusing to kill.

Honestly I wouldn't have issue with Trump or any American draft dodging Vietnam if they then didn't go on to be a chicken hawk and try to build a tough guy warrior brand. If you're going to be an authoritarian who advocates for war, at least walk the walk first.

Yeah that's the thing... The whole point of being in charge of that kind of authoritarian regime is so you can send someone else's kids to die.
