    How exactly is it that this wreckage would cause pain to Viet Vets? By reminding them that we lost that war? I think they have adjusted to that reality. The Vietnamese are not our enemies anymore. Americans know it was a huge and tragic mistake to fight that war. The Vietnamese won. They defeated the American military on the field of battle, threw out an invading army, and are writing their own future. We applaud and admire them for that.
    Now if the show were filmed at the LBJ library, that would have been insensitive.
