From what I've read for myself on the Gulf of Tonkin-it was another clear case, of botched up instructions based on botched up MISinformation.
As in the MISinformed of stupid parrot squawk and repeat sayz, what the MISinformed of stupid parrot squawk and repeat doez.
The real problem in Vietnam was trying to fight a defensive war where the US military was prohibited from attacking the enemy base.

Wouldn't it have been great to have an armed drone when Jane Fonda posed for enemy propaganda on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun?

United Drones of America, Privatized Testing Sites
There are drones all over the place already in the USA. This genie has been out of the bottle for years now.
But let's pretend drones are not already being used a lot in the USA.
NPR sort of did just that this morning. In their broadcast, called Seeking A 'Field Of Dreams' For A Rising Drone Industry, I think many listeners might just think drones aren't already in our skies.
I will prove this is not true below.

(Imagine the possibilities of personal drone ownership?)
with the drone lobby taking care of Republican Congressman it won't be long before they try to legislate for mandated personal ownership.

Topix feuds will take on a whole new meaning.

New York lawmaker: 2013 Ďa superb yearí to pass single-payer health care
New York Assemblyman Richard Gottfried on Thursday introduced legislation to implement a single-payer health care system in the state, a proposal commonly referred to as ďMedicare for all.Ē
Under a single-payer system, the state would pay for health care costs using a tax-payer funded insurance pool, similar to how Medicare operates at the federal level. The state of Vermont plans to implement a single-payer system by 2017. The California legislature approved a single-payer bill in 2008, but it was vetoed by then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Any cost numbers?

Clearly, any taxpayer who already has insurance as an employee benefit will take a huge hit.

McCain is retiring in 2016 and Graham will be out after the 2014 primary, probably to take a job in the Obama administration.

Now he says he wants to run for President! Pls nominate this fool.
Hillary Clinton polled against anyone; wins.
Hillary will be thrown under the bus by Obama in favor of his chosen successor, a surrogate candidate to allow Obama to retain power.

Unemployment down because of lower labor force participation rate.

Before long there will be no unemployment because nobody will bother working for Obama.

WASHINGTON ó Weeks after he was first arrested in Turkey, a son-in-law of Osama bin Laden who once served as a spokesman for Al Qaeda will appear in a New York courtroom on Friday to face terrorism charges that could result in life imprisonment
The arrest of Mr. Abu Ghaith was the rare occasion in which a Qaeda operative was detained overseas rather than killed. The Obama administration has expanded the use of targeted killing operations in Pakistan, Yemen and elsewhere, asserting that they are justified when there is no possibility of capture.
Spokesmen for the C.I.A. and the White House declined to comment.
Three terrorism defendants, who were extradited from Britain in October, are already facing trial in Manhattan.
They include Abu Hamza al-Masri, the fiery Islamic preacher who has been charged with conspiring in a 1998 kidnapping of American and other tourists in Yemen and in trying to help establish a terrorist training camp in Oregon, and Adel Abdul Bary, charged with conspiring in the 1998 bombings of two United States Embassies in East Africa. Both have pleaded not guilty.

Send the trash to Guantanamo for a quick military trial and execution.

A Third-World jury in New York will never convict, for the same reason that OJ was acquitted in downtown LA.

Another right whiner who takes a good report & searches for the negative.

As usual, you're wrong. Apparently, you can't read, as well as you can't write.

Try reading what holder actually said.

It was not 'NO'. It was "It depends". And you're still a crybaby whining about losing the election.

Cry me a river, nitwit!! Mitt lost!!
