    i believe that the u.s military strategy in veitnam was flawed, because it relied to much on establishing a body count as a measure of success. and of course there is the horror of the My Lai massacre.

    Oh Yes, My Lai was a huge scandal but few, if any, of these other crimes were reported.

    Of course American troops are kept to higher standards than their opposition but if any of this was true then there obviously should have been a hearing, as with My Lai. Things like this, if true, are hugely detrimental to morale and the guilty parties must be punished.

    Then give us a reason besides a tantrum that led to the barricading of open air monuments (large statues) that never close any other time.
    Give us a reason other than a tantrum that led to the eviction of elderly senior citizens from their own private property.
    Give us a reason other than a tantrum that led to the public roads being barricaded so you couldnt pull over to see Mt. Rushmore...from 10 mile away.

    Make is as uncomfortable as possible, inconvenience everyone and blame it on the Republican shut down. It cost more money to barricade those monuments, roads etc than it costs when those things are open.

    Where is the common sense in that?
    Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.

    Until you can get your history straight, there is no sense reading further or replying any further. Go read what states fought on what side then ask yourself if your statement represents the facts.

    Son, please get your history straight, like I told the previous poster, go research which states fought for what side and see if your theory of "it was all about slavery" holds water...because it dont.

    i posted a news article " a my lai a day" which told about what was going on in the mekong delta.

    and that article brings up the biggest flaw in the u.s strategy in Vietnam, it relied too much on establishing a body count. the accusation being implied that the u.s armed forces were so focused in creating a high body count they killed civilians as well as enemy soldiers.

    The Cons shut down the government; the administration of the government then has to decide priority of use of very limited funds; the CONS must accept and bear responsibility for the CONSequences, which they never do.

    There were decades of Obama's record but that didn't matter and there were years of tapes showing what he said and what he didn't do but that didn't matter either. It s really too bad that people buy the rhetoric and ignore the results. You and others have built up a hatred for Palin and conservatives all in an attempt to divert from the Obama record. One of these days the majority in this country are going to wake up and say enough is enough. The failed Obama economic agenda and lack of leadership show exactly who and what liberals are with many of them here in this forum. It really is a shame that people like you and others buy rhetoric only. Why is that?
