Some tard on YouTube sent me a nasty letter because I said the Vietnam War was a joke. He claimed to be a vet. I doubt it. Do you think 60+ year old vets are on the internet defending a war 30 years ago? Anyway. I've done my research. My dad was in Vietnam. Everyone used to claim to be a Vietnam Vet, now it's Iraq...anyway...
The idea of the Vietnam War was for us to stop Commie aggression. Only that was the wrong place for us to fight it. We took over for the French who were totally getting their ass beat. Johnson made up some b.s. incident to get us into the country in mass. Nixon took over and took such a long time to get us out that tons more died. He was looking for a way to get us out and save face.
In 2005, however, a NSA declassified report revealed that there was no attack on 4 August. It had already been called into question long before this. "The Gulf of Tonkin incident," writes Louise Gerdes, "is an oft-cited example of the way in which Johnson misled the American people to gain support for his foreign policy in Vietnam."
The end result was that we lost 60k people/300k wounded. We lost a war. The Commies took over ANYWAY. The people there ended up liking us and being pro USA. The pros of the war were again a good weapons test. It trained our soldiers that stuck within the military. It showed us that we can lose and we need to pick our battles and know when to get the f out. It also showed that the military needs our support and not BS rules that prevent them from winning the battles.
There's nothing we can do about it now but I can't see how anyone could say us going there was a good thing.

|exactly....false flag operation. now why is it so hard to believe that 9/11 was also a false flag op? its just history, governments stage terror attacks to get the people in fear of a boogieman and to get them hot to fight a war which will do what? make a pile of money for the banks that fund it and the war and oil industry which buys off the politicians. its simple. people just think that these guys wear suits they cant be bad. wrong. our founding fathers made the constitution with one goal in mind to stop govnmt tyranny. and guess what the patriot act has been doing...destroying every bit of our constitution and the reason they say...oh its that boogieman al CIAda the whole terrorism strata has been turned a complete 360 from the guys in turbans to the fat dumb cows it was orignally intended for.... YOU the american people. from govnmt spying on you to warrentless wiretaps and torture looked on as a "good" thing. stupid fools dont understand that when you go along with this it makes it legal for them to use it on us. Our borders are wide open, millions of mexicans and others are getting drivers licenses and other benefits no questions asked...makes the war on terror a fraud if the borders are open. |
But no, people will say "I LUV JARJE BUSH CUZ HES A REPUBLEECUN HES A GUUD OLE BAW HE CARZ FUR THE AMERICUN PEEPUL HE WANTS TA FIGHT THE TERRARISTS OVER THAR BEFORE THEY COME GIT US OVAR HERE....YEEEE HAW......WUT YOU DONT SUPPART THE PRESIDENT YOU MUST BE A TERRARIST TOO! YOU MUST BE ALKAYDA TAZE THAT SUMBICH!"
believe me i live in Tenneesee i see these kinds of retards everyday. even tho george bush was born in maine and is afriad of horses, he only moved to texas for oil and everything about him is fake. haha i just have to laugh. they will love their enslavement when hillary and obama are in, they ban guns and u.n. troops are walking down your streets taking your kids away and hauling you to fema camps for extermination. People could have risen up and become informed and fought this tyranny but instead they only know that britney spears didnt wear any underwear and the latest football scores.
i really veered off there haha. anyways yep vietnam was a sad thing that got millions of americans and vietnamese killed but you cant tell the veterans that it was for nuthin, you cant tell them they fought over a staged event and it wasnt for america and patriotism but rather for corporate interests and bloodthirsty sadists at the top.
