The point was that the NVA/VC had the abilities to strike well within S. Vietnam and that Nixon failed to accept that reality... It was an example of just what kind of enemy we were ***trying*** to fight... That's the part that escaped both Nixon and Johnson... Both thought it was a conventional war and neither were willing to accept that it wasn't so they went along using WW II/Korean tactics...

That is why after 100s of weeks of fighting those who parrot that the the US was within a week of winning sound like the folks who claim that man never flew to the moon...

Nixon was delusional...

No, the Tet Offensive was in January 1968, months before Nixon was even nominated.

No, Nixon didn't get *US* out of Vietnam, GfinS... The Vietnamese did... I mean, let's dabble in reality for a minute here... During the '68 campaign Nixon went around telling everyone that he had a...

..."Secret Plan" to get *US* out of Vietnam!!!

That was 1968...

When did the Vietnam War end, GfinS??? '69??? 70??? 71??? No, 72???, How about '73??? Nope, not yet... Well, then it must have been '74, right... Nope, still going on...

Reality is that it was not until April of 1975!!! Seven years after Nixon's announcement of his "Secret Plan"... During those year Nixon bombed the crap out North Vietnam and Cambodia trying to stop the movement of supplies and manpower and it didn't work... We also saw witnessed the Tet Offensive which clearly wasn't part of Nixon's "Secret Plan"...

No, to say that Nixon got *US* out of Vietnam does not do justice to reality...

Speaking of justice???

Have you ever listened to any of the LBJ tapes, GfinS??? Man, they are very enlightening... Like Robert Byrd, Johnson did make some very fundamental changes in his thinking about racism and deserves credit for making those changes... That's the "courage" part that I, as well as most students of history, appreciate in Johnson... I mean, we have to give credit where credit is due least our thinking becomes so one-dimensional that we are not able to think critically...

If you were to ask the older black people, especially in the South, what they thought of LBJ you'd be surprised to find that a deep respect for 'ol Lyndon... That speaks more than anything... Of course, Dr. King had a lot to do with it because he worked Lyndon purdy hard... But, hey...

...we do need to accept that bad people can change and do good things and Lyndon did just that even if it was at the expense of the Democratic Party in the South...

As for rejecting the Dems??? Hey, what we have here is a complete imbalance of information and it is skewed way right... I mean, by today's standards, Dwight Eisenhower would be a flaming leftist so it is understandable that uninformed people hold uninformed views...

In other words...

...garbage in = garbage out!!!

Square business...

The Tea Party is a front organization for the Koch Brothers and the Americans For Prosperity.
They are misguided and angry people who don't realize that they are being screwed by
corporate interests and made to believe propaganda rather than deal with real facts.

The facts are clear. Rich people don't want to share the burden of taxes.
Billions are being spent in two failed wars.

Republicans are fighting "culture war" issues instead of taking care of jobs.

Jobs will not be created by Corporate America because it diminishes their bottom line.

The real America is beginning to stand up.

Anyone who brings a gun to a political event in my opinion is a terrorist.

Will Rogers was an amazing person and one of the wisest men of any generation. His accomplishments include being a champion lasso thrower, a performer on the Broadway stage, the star of 71 movies, a radio broadcaster, an author of six books, and a syndicated newspaper columnist. Will Rogers traveled around the world three times and befriended presidents, senators, prime ministers, and kings.

Will Rogers was famous for his simple, insightful humor and his ability to connect honestly with everyone he met. His comments about politics in general and the politics of his generation are among his most memorable. The following are some of the best Will Rogers political quotes.

There's no trick to being a humorist when you have the whole government working for you.

Ancient Rome declined because it had a Senate; now what's going to happen to us with both a Senate and a House?

I am not a member of any organized political party. I am a Democrat.

I don't make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.

The more you read and observe about this Politics thing, you got to admit that each party is worse than the other. The one that's out always looks the best.

The income tax has made more liars out of the American people than golf has.

On account of being a democracy and run by the people, we are the only nation in the world that has to keep a government four years, no matter what it does.

The man with the best job in the country is the Vice President. All he has to do is get up every morning and say, "How's the President?"

An economist's guess is liable to be as good as anybody else's.

Alexander Hamilton started the U.S. Treasury with nothing -- and that was the closest our country has ever been to being even.

If stupidity got us into this mess, then why can't it get us out?

Be thankful we're not getting all the government we're paying for.

Politics has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated.

Diplomacy is the art of saying "Nice doggie" until you can find a rock.

A fool and his money are soon elected.

About all I can say for the United States Senate is that it opens with a prayer and closes with an investigation.

Our Constitution protects aliens, drunks, and U.S. Senators.

Anything important is never left to the vote of the people. We only get to vote on some man; we never get to vote on what he is to do.

Politics is applesauce.

Diplomats are just as essential to starting a war as soldiers are for finishing it… You take diplomacy out of war, and the thing would fall flat in a week.

I bet after seeing us, George Washington would sue us for calling him "father."

There ought to be one day—just one—when there is open season on senators.

The country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer.

If I studied all my life, I couldn't think up half the number of funny things passed in one session of Congress.

If you ever injected truth into politics you'd have no politics.

Things in our country run in spite of government, not by aid of it.

We don't seem to be able to check crime, so why not legalize it and then tax it out of business?

Everything is changing. People are taking their comedians seriously and the politicians as a joke.

Liberty doesn't work as well in practice as it does in speeches.

Ohio claims they are due a president as they haven't had one since Taft. Look at the United States; they have not had one since Lincoln.

The 1928 Republican Convention opened with a prayer. If the Lord can see His way clear to bless the Republican Party the way it's been carrying on, then the rest of us ought to get it without even asking.

There is no more independence in politics than there is in jail.

All I know is just what I read in the papers, and that's an alibi for my ignorance.

Will Rogers was asked about the nature of his humorous remarks about politicians. "I have often said in answer to inquiries as to how I got away with kidding some of our public men, that it was because I liked all of them personally, and that if there was no malice in your heart there could be none in your gags, and I have always said I never met a man I didn't like."

John Perkins is a pathological liar.

I listened to a radio interview a few years ago when the book mentioned here first came out.

Perkins said he was always the best liar he knew and was proud of that. He said he has been lying all of his life, was lying when he worked IMF, was lying when he wrote the book and was lying right now. Yes, he said he was lying during the interview. He seemed smug and proud of it.

You can't take anything he says seriously even though he may throw out a fact now and then. Overall, he is making it up and amusing himself bigtime. He has made millions selling books so he seems to have the last laugh, at everyone else's expense.

Columnist Sebastian Mallaby of the Washington Post reacted sharply to Perkins' book: "This man is a frothing conspiracy theorist, a vainglorious peddler of nonsense, and yet his book, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, is a runaway bestseller." Mallaby, who spent 13 years writing for the London Economist ... holds that Perkins' conception of international finance is "largely a dream" and that his "basic contentions are flat wrong."

I couldn't get my pudder to play but the 1st minute an 30 seconds but I'm assuming it got around to the million$$$ that the Koch brothers threw into the mix to hire "community organizers", rent offices, etc...

Oh, and I'm sure it gota round to Doick Aremy's "Freedom Works", his lobbyist firm and the millions$$$ thnat the health insurance and pharma funneled to the Tea Party to hire more "community" organizers, rent more offices, rent buses, etc...

Grass roots, my butt...

Because of the corrupt campaign finance laws it's impossible to ever know how much $$$ the Tea Party cost the rich but if you throw in FOX's "in kind" contributions I'd dare say that we're not looking at just hundreds of millions$$$ but billion$$$...

Tell ya'll what... If I had that money to mount a campaign I could get a hundred leftie radicals elected to the House of Reps because our government is "the best that money can buy"...

The war could have been won with the use of nuclear weapons and without the meddling of those infernal bastards in Washington. Maybe it's a good thing it wasn't.

Addition:

Oh, one very important that I left out of my last post concerns that all important logistical aspect of the war involving supplies... Vietnam was the signature "Cold War" proxy war between the US and the USSR/China... This is the part that the military scientists use in teaching... Because of the geography it was relatively easy for both the Russians and the Chinese to re-supply the National Liberation Front (NLF) via North Vietnam since the US had no way of cutting those land supply routes... If supplies had to come in boats then from strictly a logistics side it would have been easier tho given the fact that South Vietnam was involved in a "hot civil war" within itself wouldn't have changed anything...

First of all, there was absolutely no way for the US to have won militarily in Vietnam... A lot of people think this was a war strictly between North and South Vietnam... That is revisionistic mythology... Reality was that it was a lot more than that... After President Diem was assassinated by our CIA South Vietnam broke into civil war and the more the US tried to stop it the worse it got... How could the US ever defeated the Viet Cong??? Well, they couldn't have... That was the lesson that we should have learned... Most military scholars understand that... The POW-MIA grunts who are now in their 60s and riding their Harleys to DC every Memorial Day can't bring themselves to let the loss be... So they fight and fight and fight and will die fighting because we, as a nation, never laid Vietnam to rest... But the military scholars know that a war such a Vietnam, where half the population can by day live among you and at night become gorilla fighters against the existing puppet government and occupiers, can never be won...

I mean, we bombed Laos and Cambodia to pieces trying to stop men and material coming south on the Ho Chi Min Trail and reality was that, as in any war, logistics of getting material and men to the battle is the hardest part, the bombing never interrupted the supply... I mean, look at the number of fully supplied North Vietnamese and Viet Cong there were in Saigon as we tried to evacuate the last of the South Vietnamese who had been faithful to *US*...

No, quite the opposite... Most military historians understand exactly why Vietnam was unwinnable...

But, of course, we do have the conspiracy theorists who are playing to the emotions of the folks who have not, and cannot, square what they they were involved with... I understand that... No one can square it, regardless of one's history... We anti-war folks can't square it either... Our entire generation will die without Vietnam even being resolved... But that's the emotional side which has nothing to do with...

...the military ***science*** side...

I mean, there are reason why we are hearing wise old military men who understand the ***science*** of war warning *US* not to get sucked into Lybia... I've heard two this week make reference to Vietnam... I think that should set aside the conspiracy theories that the US was one week away from winning in Vietnam... These men learned the lessons from Vietnam...

But seein' as the conspiracy theorists have put together their mythology package for consumption there is really no reason to re-fight a war that military scientists use as an example of the kind of war that cannot be won so I'll just side with the older and wiser men who weren't the grunts and have a different perspective...

The debate really cannot ever be won because certain people will believe whatever they want regardless of the merits of their beliefs and, hey, if the POW-MIAers want/need to believe that the war could have been won, then that's what they are going to believe...

So, GfinS, if you are waiting expecting me to deliver that last bit of Evidence then you'll be waiting a long time but we were told over and over during the war that victory was right around the corner... Richard Nixon won in 1968 partly because he had a "secret plan" to win the war... The war went another 7 long years... In all we were in Vietnam from 1959 to 1975 in some capacity and from 1965 to 1975 engaged in a "hot war"... That made fir 16 years and so if folks need/want to think another week would have made the difference, then, hey, let 'um...

There are people who strongly believe that the moon landing was staged in the Majave Desert???

I mean, what more can I say???

F-Guy: "WoW! This is really 'militant' stuff - Those who said 'get out of Vietnam' WON, remember? :-)"

And according to Russian documents, when the country broke up, we would have 'won'(?), had the war gone on, just one more week...Then, we could still be importing all that 'China White' from the 'Golden Triangle'..which is one huge reason the 'war' dragged on so long!
Not to worry, I was opposed to that bullshit...all of it!..and thought LBJ was a piece of shit, along with it!
