    FWIW

    None of the 22 SEAL personnel killed in the crash were part of the team that killed bin Laden in a May raid in Pakistan, but they belonged to the same unit

    Please read VIETNAM: A History, by Stanley Karnow (winner of the Pulitzer Prize). It's the single greatest work on the Vietnam War ever written. It reads like a thriller. You'll love it. It's brilliant, beyond my powers of description.

    The real question would be who would be the nut to push the red button, that some one I bet dollars to oranges won't be from the first world if you will.

They were given stupid targets to attack and had to disobey orders to attack what they KNEW would cause damage to the enemy. He said we had the capability of leveling Vietnam but we restrained ourselves.

    We didn't lose that war on the ground, only in Washington.

    We lost the best of the best. It was a blow to the heart to hear the news this morning.
    So many boys who were at the top of their game.
