Just before I arrived in Vietnam in 1970, as a young, gung-ho, kill-a-commie-for-freedom, Australian army captain, President Richard Nixon of the United States ordered the invasion of a neighboring nation. Not a neighbor of America, of course, but a place that was neighbor to the country that had been taken over by America.
During the ten years' war in Vietnam US Presidents and their foolish and supposedly 'patriotic' patsies in the House and Senate sent 58,267 of their fellow citizens to their deaths. The Vietnam Memorial in Washington is a wonderful tribute, but it's also a dire monument to the everlasting condemnation of wicked morons who imagined they were supporting 'Freedom' by sending so many of their country's soldiers to be killed.
Just like in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. MORE...
