    You have to understand that these guys don't believe that the North Vietnamese (and Chinese and Russians) beat us in Vietnam. They believe that it was lack of will that beat us.  It is basically the Hitler meme on why the Germans lost the First World War.  If they had just stayed strong and waited another few months for two million more American troops to come over to attack their tired out army, they would have won.  This meme actually carried popular opinion in Germany, because the military wanted to cover up the fact that in fact they were beat.  Ditto Rumsfeld, who was on duty when the helicopters sailed from Saigon.

    Anyway, this is an attempt to paint people like us as 'tools' or 'fools' of Al Quaeda propaganda.  Get used to it.
