On the Maddox and false reports of torpedo launches- if that wasn't war already in process, what was?
On My lai-All due to MORE MISinformation, of wrong coordinates.
Ever read any of the transcripts of those present?
Talk about having to live lifetimes of actual trauma.
The issue before us is not whether a war was in progress, but who was responsibile for it.

When you say "false torpedo attack" that hits the nail on the head. Because that's exactly what happened. The military falsely clamined an unprovoked North Vietnamese attack when it knew better.

As for your explanation for the My Lai massacre which say was MISinformation and wrong information, I think you're once more floating hazy, half-baked explanations of innocence which you know aren't true.

The U.S. Army surrounded My Lai, herded the villagers into the nearby woods, then systematically began separating small numbers out of view who were machinegunnned. And continued the process over and over as the day went on.

No mistakes, no wrong coordinates. It was organized mass murder.

You're not going to find this information anywhere in the liberal media.
Other sources such as Bloomberg reported the same thing.
By the way, releasing two years of returns is more than what the law requires and the standard Senator Kerry adhered to as the Democratic nominee in the 2004 election.
But we didn't hear enough whining about Romney producing only two years of his tax returns by the left. Not a word was said about Kerry's wife's fortune that he married into withholding her tax returns.
Fer krissakes Carol; Romney hid money in Switzerland and the Caymans to avoid paying U.S. income taxes. How, can a man expect to become President of this country and do such a thing? Please.
John Kerrys wife was not running for President.

It was the controversy over killing an American overseas that started the ball rolling.
Personally, I have no problem with an American who claims to be an enemy and a terrorist being targeted overseas.
But that controversy wasn't even put to rest before Holder started tripping all over himself about Americans being targeted here and the nomination of Brennan who supports killing Americans overseas.
It created some serious concerns.
Be patient.

The left will turn on drones when they are used for warrantless searches in the War on Drugs.

Kerry lost not because of his wealth or his income tax returns of which he paid even less in taxes than Romney.
The point is wealth only becomes a factor when it's a republican and not a Kennedy or a Kerry or a Rockefeller or a Pelosi.
Kerry lost because voters are unfairly prejudiced against elite snobs.

The main point of my post, which you miss in the most embarrassing manner, was that the CIA was the prime mover in causing the war with North Vietnam.
The US was never in a war with North Vietnam, which was exactly the problem. Instead, we tried to fight their proxies in the jungles and rice paddies.

One bigass bomb on Hanoi would have ended the war.

Focused in you having a fit about Obama's admitted drug use in college when you idiots elected a President twice that was such a drunk & cokehead well into his adult life.
I'm perfectly at ease with the habits of this president, it gives me a plausible explanation for why he do what he do, and for him, an excuse for not knowing (remembering?) what's going on around him.

I stated the change did not occur overnight.
But it did happen eventually. The shift was noticeable on election night, 1964, following Barry Goldwater's speech against Civil Rights. Five Southern states bolted for the GOP camp.

Exactly.
So if gays want to marry, keep your snoot out of it, Mr. GOP Hypocrite.
Marriage should be a private contract between individuals, not sanctioned or controlled by government in any way. That includes not mandating any benefits of "marriage" or setting any rules for dissolution of same, including alimony and/or child support, all of which should be covered by contract.

That way, nobody has any say other than the individuals involved.
