    That infamous photo of the naked Vietnamese girl running down the road with her village burning from napalm. No Americans were even in the area. The vill was napalmed by the RVN Air Force. But the liberals back home wanted everyone to think it's was the Americans who napalmed the vill. Liberal revisionism at work and looking at some of the post, it worked.

    I'll enlighten you. Look real close to the soldiers in the photo. They aren't American but ARVAN soldiers. It was RVN Air Force planes that bombed the vill, not Americans.

    I don't know whom I disliked more, Marvin or Charles.

    I think if I was around earlier in the war, I would have hated Marvin more... they're as useless as pedals on a wheelchair.

    never did have to face NVA though, but I have a certain amount of respect for actual warriors.

    Cite ANY source for your claims...ANY.

    The left didn't establish the word as a racial slur for asians. Unless you consider those who serve in uniform are lefties.

    Wiki uses both terms for the Philippine war... I never knew it was only ever called insurrection, you seem intent on making everything a vast leftie smear campaign...

    As far as your supposed Marine who called Aussies gooks, I know a guy who used the 'N' word for every race and creed he met if he didn't like them... your 'story' proves nothing.

    You just wanted to sound salty and instead you just reminded us how out of touch you are in your own little world. I worked with several Marines, 2 Vietnam vets and one Gulf War... they NEVER used gook for a generic- 'different' term. It was ALWAYS about asians and not in a nice way.
    And you will probably remain one of the misinformed.

    And that's how Obama got elected.

    Now remember when you go out of your house and you tell your kids to hold down the fort while your gone, according to the Obama administration and the PC left you are a racist.

    You got no cred on that, IMO. Your words in this thread have proven that you're just another hater who disparages people of color.

    I was only involved in one operation where ARVAN was on our flank. I heard stories, way too many stories. I didn't feel comfortable with ARVAN even being in the vicinity. I'm lucky to have never having been attached to an ARVAN unit spotting NGF for. I would rather have been attached to the Marines 1/9 aka the walking dead. Those poor bastards, every time they went out in the bush it's as if they were magnets attracting large NVA units. You have to search hard to find someone who served with 1/9 who doesn't have the Purple Heart.

    And about every person I know of "color" would call you an idiot who plays the race card.

    More CON game... stay on the topic! You are infamous for throwing crap and hoping it sticks, dodging the topic and dragging other crap in. Fact is you can't cite anything to back your claims what gook means. You used it as a slur, trying to sound all salty no doubt.

    You tried claiming all manner of crap and as each got knocked down you fled. Now you want to try and move completely away from the topic and onto Obama...

    It wasn't used to refer to the Barbary Pirates. It wasn't used in Europe. It was and remains a term to slur asians.

    You can give no root or origin for the word... I can...

    Migook and Hagook. Korean words corrupted by Americans as a slur for asians. Liberals didn't invent luke the gook.

    I'd say you have a full time job monitoring your own hate speech. As far as ill informed- who claimed there was such a thing as Commander in Chief 'regulations'???

    FYI President Obama got re-elected because the Party of the angry old men drove people away. But please remain ill-informed.

    Why not shut down your computer and visit a decent research library and expand your knowledge.

    But then again you were probably never taught how to research history. You are forced to rely on others individual opinions on history. That's what history books are, ones opinions on historical events and people.

    Now if you don't know where to go and what to look for on what history is written from, I could direct you in the right direction. In fact I already have with the politically incorrect phrase that so many libs got their panties all wadded up over. Funny no one got their panties all wadded up before the 1970's isn't it ? Why is that ? Could it be political ?

    Which gives me an idea of a new hornets nest thread, Progressives Three Card Monte, how the left plays games with words.

    Try this crap, it the most credible source on American slang. Any large library should have all volumes but your only concerned with vol. 1.

    This was the dictionary where I discovered that political correctness was all about revisionism, changing the definitions of words to further the radical lefts political agenda.

    Random House Historical Dictionary of American Slang, Vol. 1: A-G

    Hardcover: 1080 pages
    Publisher: Random House Reference; 1st edition (June 7, 1994)
    Language: English
    ISBN-10: 0394544277
    ISBN-13: 978-0394544274
    Product Dimensions: 11.4 x 9 x 2.1 inches
    Shipping Weight: 6.7 pounds

    >"A fascinating mixture of the clever, the colorful, the crude, and the coarse, this first historical dictionary to be devoted exclusively to American slang has been in progress for more than two decades. Volume 1 of the projected three-volume set covers A-G; volumes 2 (H-R) and 3 (S-Z) are scheduled for publication in 1996 and 1997, respectively. In his excellent 27-page introduction, Lighter, a research associate in the English department of the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, traces the historical development of slang in the English language and discusses its sociological and cultural aspects. Following the introduction, Lighter provides a useful, annotated bibliography of significant books and articles dealing with American slang and an admirably thorough guide to the dictionary.
    Defining slang as "an informal, nonstandard, nontechnical vocabulary composed chiefly of novel-sounding synonyms for standard words and phrases," Lighter notes that his intent in this compilation is to treat words and phrases that can be considered American slang, either presently or in the past. Therefore, some of the entries are for terms now considered colloquial or even Standard English (e.g., bamboozle, cliffhanger, dandy, flapper, fluke), but which were at one time viewed as slang. Other entries range from informal, inoffensive words and phrases that make our language more lively and interesting (e.g., can of worms, circular file, foodaholic, goof off, grungy) to terms that are generally considered offensive or vulgar, such as racial and ethnic epithets and expressions pertaining to sexual relations and body functions.

    Entry headwords are arranged letter by letter (e.g., bassackwards precedes bass fiddle), with phrases usually appearing within the entry for the main word of the phrase. Abbreviated field labels indicating that a particular group of people uses the word (e.g., military, underground) precede the definition when appropriate. Usage and status labels are used to indicate other aspects of a term, for instance, whether it is usually considered vulgar or offensive or whether it is generally used jocularly or derisively.

    The approximately 20,000 definitions included in this volume are models of succinctness. Following each definition are illustrative quotations, which are arranged chronologically, beginning with the earliest documented use. These quotations, which are the true heart of each entry, serve not only to document a word's usage at a particular time but also to further elucidate its meaning. Culled from a wide variety of written and oral sources, including literary works, popular novels, other dictionaries, magazines, newspapers, motion pictures, television programs, and anonymous conversations, the more than 90,000 quotations in this volume range from the seventeenth century to the 1990s. The degree of currency is particularly impressive since a number of 1993 sources, and at least one 1994 publication, are represented. A complete list of the approximately 8,000 sources cited throughout the dictionary will not appear until volume 3. This delay may prove problematic for users trying to locate the source of a quotation because titles are provided in abbreviated form. For example Nathan McCall's Makes Me Wanna Holler is referred to as "N. McCall, Wanna Holler."

    While there is no denying that perusing the pages of this volume can rattle one's sensibilities, the increasing permissiveness regarding language in today's society cannot be ignored. Only a decade or so ago, many of the words in this work were considered taboo, not just in polite society but also in the mass media. Today the infamous f word and words and phrases of similar ilk are cropping up in song lyrics, films, television programs, literary works, and mainstream magazines. The increasing usage and heightened awareness of such terms are not only reflected in this volume, but also make its publication even more timely and appropriate.

    When completed, Lighter's dictionary will be, without a doubt, the most definitive and scholarly treatment of American slang ever published. Most academic and large public libraries will want to add this work, since its historical treatment complements the coverage of slang terms in the Dictionary of American Regional English and The Oxford English Dictionary. Getting down to the nitty-gritty, Lighter evidently is cooking with gas because he has done a bang-up job in compiling this tome. In short, it's awesome, fantabulous, rad, the cat's meow! "<
