    Of course you've mentioned more than the UK and US and there were no deaths in a few of them.

    Do you have a plan on how to fight Muslims terrorists without offending some of their Islamic sympathizers? Would you advocate, like FDR, sealing off Muslims in some remote camps until the war against terror is over? Or perhaps disallow any further immigration until Islamic terrorism stops? Perhaps allow Sharia Law as soon as a Richard Reid tries to light his shoes on an airplane? What would you suggest?

    Oh, so if there are no deaths. Its all OK? Even though they keep right on trying and succeed many times.
    Close our borders and tighten immigration? Hell yes.

    No, it's not all okay but we have to act before they do and shouldn't prevent us from going after them.. What caused Fort Hood was nothing more than political correctness run amok and a denial of the obvious..

    I agree 100% about tightening immigration.

    If it was a civil war outside countries would not have been involved. It was part of the Cold War, just as most outbreaks were during that period.

    No. It was a civil war to unify Vietnam, which is a seperate culture, and nation then China/Cambodia.
    Afgansitan is essentially a civil war also, but we seem to find some need to try to construct a nation from a feudal type society.

    Stay out of foreign civil wars, they are not our business, and we cannot control the outcomes.

    It was a war to 'unify' Vietnam under Communism. Did you know that?

    The N. Vietnamese were communists, i think because they were tired of colonial powers (France/US) coming into SE Asia, and taking the resources.
    I'm a bit foggy on this - it was long ago.

    Either way, it was their counrty, they could run any gov't as the please - the US was in Cold War hysteria - why JFK sent advisers in the first place;
    but the escaaltion by LBJ was just pure paranoia run wild. we lost 53,000 men and women their on nothing but hysterical policy

    After the fall of Saigon ; Vietnam has nothing significant to do with the Cold War. Meaning it never did in the first place, except our insane "domino theory" constructs we invented.

    Isn't that the theory the Russian's went with when they invaded and tried to hold Afghanistan?
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.
