    More "sky is falling" fearmongering, Ken?

    Careful!

    Lest your fears become an obsession. :godisgood:

    I recommend Psalms 27:1 for the fearful.

    That's Barack.

    Yes, he will certainly make it better than Senator John McCain.

    Don't worry, given enough time you will support him. You have supported every other political stripe this election season.

    For you convenience, both party symbols are posted in case you cannot remember who to support on any given day.

    Well, we lost in Viet Nam. The USSR lost to Afghanastan. Anything is possible espesially if we extend our armed forces too much as we have with an all volunteer army. BTW we've now been in Iraq longer than WW2.

    Let's see: Stink, stank, stunk, think, thank, thunk, loose, loss, looser! No, wait ... okay, I got it now: luuzer! That's it Harry Reid - or is it Reed - has a luuzer's mentality or whatever Nancy Pelosi - or is it Pellosy - has!

    You are factually and historically incorrect.

    We walked away about three years before that war ended. No one chased us out. It was a planned and orderly withdrawal of all forces. We handed over the war to the South Vietnamese. We negotiated - and forced - a peace treaty upon them with our enemy. We stopped supporting them while the other super powers of the day continued to support our enemy. We didn't bother going back when that enemy failed to abide by any part the treaty. We let politics get in the way of principles. We just closed our eyes and pretended the final result was inevitable and the fault of our friends. We watched the victor systemically oppress those we'd previously fought beside. We chose to turn our backs on it all and write history in a way pleasing to those who didn't have the courage and strength to stay the course we'd set out upon. We listened to the fools of the day. We failed America's fighting men by publicly characterizing their efforts and sacrifices as a hopeless and lost cause. We grab every short coming and set back - everything bad - and always drive them all to the forefront of our graphic and written history casting aside all that was actually done. We did this even in our "entertainment". We idolized the image of ourselves as losers destroying the credibility of leaders and followers alike while at the same time portraying the enemy as superior in ideological and methodology. We even justify what our enemy did as rightly securing freedom for their own people. That's why among veterans it's known that we won the war in Viet Nam but lost the peace. Let's see if we learned anything and can spare this generation such a legacy.

    I am not interested in right-wing, U.S.A. right or wrong propaganda; the hype you seem to revel in.

    When the United States if right, I support our actions, such as in Afghanistan. When we are wrong, such as in Iraq, I oppose it.

    Oh, please. :rolleyes:

    And you don't mind ignoring facts and history as you struggle to define your own special version or what's "right" and "wrong".
