"Invaded"? Is that what the United Snakes military is doing in Turkey? yada yada More questions?
If the US attacked the Soviet Union from Turkey, what do you think the Soviets would have done to Turkey? Far, far more than we did to Cambodia.

Giap was considering surrendering in January 1968 until he saw how the Tet offensive was being viewed in the US. That was 4 years before the US left and 7 years before Saigon fell. Dumbass!

The South Koreans rule their own country, not the Chinese, not the Japanese, not the US, and not the Russians. South Korea ranks 22 on the Democracy Index. Vietnam ranks 143. South Korea didn’t suffer 10s of thousands of refugees nor genocide.

There was no letup in the killing following the fall of Saigon, it just became one sided.

Had the US remained with Britain we would have been involved in these wars.

You'd be spending Rubles, speaking Russian, languishing in the Gulag, your capital city would be Moscow, and Josef McCarthski would be prosecuting you for being a Capitalist.

Your usual pathetic dodge, Nelly.
All you have to for now is tell me about the so-called blockade of Japan by the US Navy– or did you just make that sh¡t up and hoped no one would call you on your lies?

What's the matter, Nelly? Are you afraid of me?

What would have been stupid was to continue to let them do it.

Vietnamese entering Vietnam to oust American invaders and occupiers seems odd to you,huh?

And you also think it would be stupid for Americans to allow Vietnamese to enter Vietnam. That's like the National Guard killing all North Dakotans travelling to South Dakota - or - shooting anyone who wants to cross the Mason-Dixon line.

Your parents ought not let you use their computer till you reach the age of at least 15, Davey Boy. You're just a punk with no sense at all.

People not wanting to have communism imposed on them at the point of a gun seems odd to you, huh?

If the North Koreans invade South Korea do we look the other way regardless of our treaties and promises? Ever heard of SEATO?


We were extremely grateful to the French for intervening in British affairs and for their fleet showing up in the British colony of Virginia in 1781. Without French intervention we would have been forever British. When the first American troops arrived in Paris in 1917, they went to the grave of Marie Joseph Yves Roches Gilbert du Motier, and proclaimed "Lafayette we are here!"

If the British had decided to intervene in our Civil War, there may have been a country called the Southern States of America.

If all of this seems strange to you, open a history book there are hundreds of other examples.

Let's get some things straight. I don't worship the government, I tolerate it. " Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed it has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.…"--Churchill.

I don't believe the government is evil, I believe it is incompetent. I believe all governments are at best incompetent.

I hate war! The only thing worse than winning a war is losing a war. Ask Germany and Japan. If they had known the outcome of WW2 prior to its start, they would have never invaded Poland or China. Nearly every country on the planet has been to war so peace is not the normal order of man. Peace is very hard work and in most cases peace is only war deterred. For that reason I support our troops and honor their sacrifice. We have left Iraq and we will be leaving Afghanistan next year. The world is getting smaller every year and unlike many countries, the US is too big to hide. There will be other tests in the years to come and I will not turn my back on those who stood up for me.
