Miner I get tired of trying to cut through your inability to hit reply and to figure out who said what to whom."Funny how he mentions Nixon's secret war but he conveniently leaves out what China and the Russians were doing in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos."
You draw a false equivilency here.
Are you saying Russia/China's actions somehow authorized Nixon to ignore the Constitution and conduct wars without Congressional approval?
"Khmer Rouge leader accepts responsibility for Cambodia's Killing Fields"
Precisely, the "killing fields" were not the US's responsibility
"Yep and Cambodia fared so much better when the US left Vietnam.""
Nope, miner49er was NOT the author of that sentance, I just quoted it in my reply (note the quotation marks I rmployed).
Other countries killing their citizens is regrettable... But we bear responsibility for thousands of civilian deaths in countries we had no business invading.
Are you revisionists trying to justify the US involvement in Vietnam?
Nixon carried on the bombings that Johnson started in 1965. Cambodia was allowing Vietcong supply dumps on its soil.
We had signed a treaty with South Vietnam and had taken on the responsibility of defending her in 1961.
