stop jumping on band wagons and start walking down roads on your own 2 feet. then when you are 80 you can say you have met South Koreans, Germans, Iraqis Afghans South Vietnamese Grenadians, Colombians that do still thank American and its soldiers.

First off didn't lose Vietnam secondly go take a look at evin prision section 209 hell take a look at any middle eastern or asian prision system or the russian gulag then get back to me.


You didn´t lose Vietnam? I like originality but it doesn´t work in an historical context. As for Asian prisons or gulags, they don´t seem to be much worse than US prisons.

Sure thing bud. You say electrical shocks, are you still the only country to strap people to chairs and fry their internal organs with excruciating bursts of thousands of volts?

So hes a "Jew", and his credential don't count, cause hes "bias"..


Exactly! If Netanyahu wrote an article about the evils of Iran, don't you think it may be just a little tiny bit "bias?"..



This man isn't leading his Country, and to say its the same, is stretching it, BIG TIME. Its a Fallacy.

But what about the rest of the governments around the world?

They're innocent?

Give me a break.

If you support them, well then, you are just as guilty as the rest of us are. Go look in a mirror.


None of the other governments around the world invade this country. This country invades other countries. You get it?

Lets get this straight the politicians of that era cut and run from Vietanam the battles were won by America but like I said already the Us has not fought any "War" with its full military might since ww2 the micro managing of Johnson is the same thing with the micro managing and stupid rules of engagement that we currently see in Iraq and Afghanistan and the left true to form cut and ran from Iraq and sure the hell doesn't know what it doing it Afghanistan.

But that isn't the military's fault that is the asinine,stupid civilian leadership to get straight to the point the US military has never lost a war.

"since you been alive" what less than 20 years is my guess yep i can see why you don't want to put anything in to historical context gets in the way of that dogma.

America is evil etc never mind people came running to the US asked for help or anything else the fact remains out of all the countries out there in the world the US has less blood on their hands compared to most but then again the anti ameircanism people just don't want to hear anything else.

Since I have been alive I have seen the Iran hostage crisis,gulf war 1,2,Bosnia,Somalia,the falklands,the rise of democracy in China only to be met with tanks, the Tibetan massacres etc.

But hey who cares.

People just hate the "Big Boy" on the block. Yea, he has the best intentions, but truth be told, they are flawed.

"The road to hell is paved with the best intentions." comes to mind.

Almost every Country was a Empire at one time or another and they all hate on that entity.

But I ask, like you.

What would the world do without the US in the event of a major natural disaster? I think that the actions of the US speaks for themselves.

We are probably the worlds first actual good guys. flawed, yes, but good overall.

American soldiers should be ashamed of themselves. That a human being can be so manipulated by a government to murder children is beyond my understanding.

YOU LOST THE VIETNAM WAR. YOU WERE RUN OUT OF VIETNAM BY THE NORTH VIETNAMESE DESPITE BRINGING ALL OF YOUR MILITARY ¨MIGHT¨ TO BEAR.

Stop trying to rewrite history, it´s a disgusting trait you Americans have.

Your troops could not fight in the jungle.

Funny, because at the same time, this thing called the Malaysian Emergency was going on, picture if you will, the same scenario, but in Malaysia. Communist groups, looking to overthrow the government. Britain managed to succeed with less than half the number of troops the US had in less than half the time. And Malaysia remains a stable democracy, unlike the Communist state of Vietnam.

Exactly! I've done that and have yet to kill a one. Traveled the globe for thirty years in the Military.

But to be truthful, I'm to young to have met a South Virtnamese, but I have met many Vietnamese in my life.


Many of those I have met I call friends.

He/She has probably never left their county.

Wasn't aware I was Lyndon banes Johnson so I didn't lose anything. and Vietnam was a limited conflict because Johnson didn't want Russia to go nuclear since they were suppling the Viet Cong with weapons and Russian boots on the ground.

And the only people who "rewrite history" are leftists.

Truth be told...if you were a actual history buff...the US kicked their butt. We didn't run. We pulled out because the American populace wanted it.

Who the hell is teaching you history? The cookie monster?
