4. I'm thinkin Viet Nam
Edited on Wed Sep-20-06 10:38 PM by niallmac
our adventure into Vietnam and the number of young Americans alone that
it chewed up based on a fake Tonkin Gulf 'incident' was one big mutha
screw up. Before the war started somehow my teenage mind at the time
recalled the warning "Don't get involved in a land war in Asia."
That's the tactical screw up.
Now lets pretend morals and ethics count.
We bombed poor people with B 52's for what?
The Vietnamese never stole apples from my tree.
We lost the war and they now want our tourist dollars.

Maybe from some other perspective Korea or Iraq are worse
screw ups I don't know.

Isn't it about time we asked ourselves why our pursuit of
the American Dream requires so much death?
