  •  Viet Nam revisited (none)
    In reading many articles about Nixon and Kissenger and how they manipulated the public and the enemy, the conclusion was that they knew in 1969 that we were not winning and should make a deal to get out. Yet, because they did not take action then and told the American people we were winning,the war escalated and (I believe the number is) 18,000 more Americans died. That is an enormous amount of losses because no one wanted to lose face.

    I do not believe that GW is leveling with us. Nixon didn't either and we now once again have History repeating itself.
