Retired Generals and Admirals, William G. Crowe (Admiral, U.S. Navy, ret. and former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff) has endorsed John Kerry and refutes you rather well.
"THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION HAS AN OVERLY SIMPLISTIC VIEW OF HOW AND WHEN TO USE OUR MILITARY. BY NOT BRINGING IN OUR FRIENDS AND ALLIES, THEY HAVE CREATED A MESS IN IRAQ AND ARE CRIPPLING OUR FORCES AROUND THE WORLD. JOHN KERRY HAS A REALISTIC UNDERSTANDING OF THE REQUIREMENTS OF OUR MILITARY AND THE THREATS THAT WE FACE."
But of course you probably think you know more about our Defense needs than a former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
