    Simple - you sound like a liberal talking machine, spewing out the popular diatribe regardless of what the truth might be. It was clear to me that reality is a stretch for you ... it's one thing to misrepresent reality, and know you're doing it ... it's a whole different thing to accept the lies of others at face value and being to intellectually lazy to investigate for the truth.

    Thanks for the platitudes. Now I know your strong point. Sadly their is no way to debate platitudes, but I think you know that. Go back to your Hannity.

    Best avoid Vietnam and stick to subjects you may know something about.

    I do know that today there are 2 flights a day from LAX to Ho Chi Minh city and my tablet was made there. Is that a problem for you?

    Not at all. Now you're talking of a subject you know something about.

    Eastern Europe fell under the influence of the other Super Power up until very recently. and their aims were decidedly different then ours.

    Yes, but frequently the answer is not accurate or correct. That is, so many times the answer is contradicted by facts and evidence.

    You are easily fooled, but so was I. Most of us were.

    In my case, regarding the pictures you show, it took 4 years to realize I was tricked. 13 years later some folks have not yet realized they were fooled, and that is easily explained, because there has been a deliberate effort to reinforce in the public perception a Bright & Shining Lie.

    For some it works, others not so much.
