1. This takes me back to Vietnam protests.

It is not going to end well. The President is pushing for violent responses.

November is a long way off.

2. You're right about that and it makes my blood run cold

A lot can happen between now and November, a lot has escalated over just these past days - and now just hours! And with no one responsible in charge on a national level except to threaten and escalate the situation, this is not going to end well or anytime soon.

8. It is Worse than Vietnam

It is worse than Vietnam in terms of its potential to set off a civil war situation. Back in Vietnam days people were not exactly as polarized and crazy as we are now. The country was more stable and prosperous then. Today people are more desperate and poor and left out of the benefits they deserve. Sensationalist and extremist forces have stirred this country up and not in a good way.
