Vietnam was the biggest nothing till the mid east fiasco came along. If we are not going to kick their ass, take their shit, and make them slaves, what's the point? **==

Johnson should have listened to his Joint Chiefs of Staff in NOV 1965.

Kennedy was right to disregard the unanimous advice of his Joint Chiefs of Staff in OCT 1962.

Yes, people it is a crap shoot.
To err is human. To forgive divine. Neither of which is Marine Corps policy.

Firstly, the Vietnam war was essentially a civil war. However, would not you mind to examine some of the Vietnam War's other participants?

Now the middle east. Next stop Africa. All the while, parts of American urban areas are going third world status.

Thread necromancy!

I have gotten through the first 4 episodes of Ken Burn’s series which is pretty solid. Wish had gotten my dad to talk about his experience more, but, not surprisingly, he wasn’t that interested in revisiting his experience.

Money and power. No matter how much of it is in your portfolio, you take none to the six foot deep dirtholio. **==
