Ok, dufus, let's put this in the real world.
It's after 9/11. You're the president.
What do you do?
Do you do the Clinton response to Al Qaeda bombing us and lob a few cruise missiles in their general direction?
Or, do you surrender to the Islamist jihad?
Or, do you go after them and make them fight you in their own back yard?
If you go fight them in their own back yard, where do you fight them?
Do you do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soviet Union?... and leave Saddam Hussein with a rebuilt war machine in your rear?
If you do, why in the hell would you expect any different result than when the Soviets did the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy?
And what do you do about Saddam when you move everything there keeping him under control to Afghanistan, and he hasn't changed his ambition from when he tried to take control of all the oil fields on the Arabian Peninsula?
Now, you're land-locked in Afghanistan and Saddam controls the entire Middle East.
You, and Obama, are ignorant fools.
Bush did it differently than the Soviets. The Soviets lost. Bush won.
Mission Accomplished.
... get over it.

You are a dumbf*ck!!! Fortunately the United Nations does not determine American policy. At least they did not in the past. The congress of the United States authorized the action in Iraq. That support came from the yes votes of many prominent democrats. Quit being a bullmanurer. Be honest. You honest, not possible, you are simply a troll with not a thought of your own.

1)You said Ho Chi Mihn spend WWII in France. That was an obvious lie & indicator that you really don't know sh*t about it.
2) Second, you claim we had no idea who he was until he brought the Soviets in? We knew whop he was rm his work in Vietnam fighting the Japanese. And Soviets? Really?
Yep 658,000 dead soldiers weren't enough & 17 years was not long enough. Next,you'll tell us how Nixon won that war.
We knew who he was, like we know who anyone of significance is. Ho Chi Minh didn't become a concern until he asked the Soviet Union to help him in the war he started against the French after he went to Paris and asked them to come back to Veitnam. The Soviet Union used this as an opportunity to expand their influence during the Cold War. He didn't become significant until the Soviet Union was supporting his invasions of South Vietnam. If he never invaded South Vietnam, he'd be about as significant as some other small-pond bullshit dictator with too big of an ego in the world.
Listen carefully to this. This is the key ingredient to understanding the US involvement in Vietnam:
As the Soviet Union increased its involvement in the invasions of South Vietnam, the US increased its involvement in the defense of South Vietnam.
That means the US involvement didn't become significant until after Ho Chi Minh asked the Soviet Union to petition the UN to divide the country.
Let's say that again:
Ho Chi Minh asked the Soviet Union to petition the UN to divide the country.
Immediately after the UN authorized the creation of North Vietnam and South Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh began invading South Vietnam.
This is exactly like how the proxy war in Korea started.
Now, idiot, here's the key:
As the Soviet involvement in the communist invasions of South Vietnam increased, the US involvement in the defense of South Vietnam increased.
US involvement didn't become direct until AFTER the UN divided the country.
The Soviet Union involvement was already at a significant level prior to this. In fact, as I told your ignorant ass previously, the communist used Soviet weapons at the battle of Dien Bien Phu, which was before the Soviet Union petitioned the UN to divide Vietnam into two separate countries.
The Cold War is a global war.
The Soviet Union is engaged in Vietnam.
The communists divide Vietnam into two countries.
The communists begin invading free South Vietnam.
The US assists South Vietnam.
The strategy of the United States during the Cold War was not to abandon our allies and run away.
You seem to be ignorant of all of this.

As for Nixon winning the war, the war was all but over in 1970 when the NVA ran away to avoid destruction when the US forces entered the Parrot's Beak in 1970. They waited until US ground forces left Vietnam in 1971 to launch the largest communist invasion of the war. They were defeated by the South Vietnamese WITHOUT ASSISTANCE FROM US GROUND COMBAT UNITS.

Now, I want you to begin your next post with one of the lies in the system of lies the Democrats invented about Vietnam:

"The South Vietnamese wouldn't fight for themselves."

Then tell us about how the communists defeated the South Vietnamese in 1972 when they mounted the single largest invasion of the war, the Easter Offensive of 1972.

... got a problem, don't you....
It seems the single largest invasion of the war wasn't successful, and there is no history of any US ground combat units fighting against the communists.
Was it aliens from space that beat the communists?
Or, was it the South Vietnamese?

Now, tell us how the Democrat-controlled congress of 1973 helped the ally of the United States after they defeated a massive communist invasion during the Cold War.

Do call former president Clinton, chickenshit willie when he dodged the draft? No? No surprize if a democrat does something it is okay, if a conservative does the same thing in your mind it is a crime. What a hypocrite.

The word chickenshit is okay, but bullsh*t is in appropriate, particularly when the slur was aimed at an individual not a thought?
