Douglas you hit the nail on the head!
When you see McCain, in his political ads, as the long suffering hero you have to think back to the reason he was a POW. He was shot down dropping napalm on “suspected” villages killing untold thousands of men, women and children, or as the military calls them, collateral damage.
What would we Americans do if a pilot was turning our neighbors into charcoal? We would shoot him down…and if he was captured, we would send him to Gitmo to spend the next several years, just as they did to McCain.
In the eyes of those whose nation had been bombed to hell and back…John McCain was a terrorist.

Oh, “I’m a Vietnam war hero”??? I don’t think so. Killing Vietnamese in their own country was not the action of any kind of ‘hero’.
What is more, it was known in Vietnam as “the American war”. Don’t forget that. And the only real “Vietnam war heros” I ever met were all Vietnamese, uhh.
