Stop comparing these needless corporate contrived ventures, as some type of "repeat of history". Its a repeat of "STUPIDITY", over 4 million civilians we're murdered and millions of tax dollars we're misappropriated. All compliments of Vietnam Inc. and the exact scam is being perpetrated on this Republic at present.

Judging by the number of unborn babies that have been legally slaughtered in the United States, why should you "Theo" be surprised by the number of innnocent civilians killed in America's war on terror!?
