Viet Nam a Half Century Later

2 posts in this topic

Jimmy Carter called a war waged in Vietnam by the United States — a war that killed 60,000 Americans and 4,000,000 Vietnamese, without burning down a single U.S. town or forest — “mutual” damage. Ronald Reagan called it a “noble” and “just cause.” Barack Obama promotes the myth of the widespread mistreatment of returning U.S. veterans, denounces the Vietnamese as “brutal,” and has launched a 13-year, $65 million propaganda program to glorify what the Vietnamese call the American War:

"As we observe the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War, we reflect with solemn reverence upon the valor of a generation that served with honor. We pay tribute to the more than 3 million servicemen and women who left their families to serve bravely, a world away . . . They pushed through jungles and rice paddies, heat and monsoon, fighting heroically to protect the ideals we hold dear as Americans."

Had a lot of buddies who served in Vietnam.

The folks I know are a different breed of heroes that I have always admired.

But for what it worth, The U.S. has a disturbing policy that was put in place specifically for Vietnam and has not been modified of discontinued since the Vietnam war.

That policy is the spraying of napalm, agent orange or any dangerous substances on military personnel or civilian populations.

I wonder why no one has challenged these antiquated policies.
