After ten bloody years in Vietnam, we finally pulled out in 1975. We left the country bombed out, Agent Orange-contaminated and a trail of 2.million corpses of men, women and children. We suffered 58,300 young men’s deaths and another 350,000 horribly injured. Because of P.T.S.D., another 200,000 combat troops who left Vietnam in one piece—later committed suicide. Millions more remain divorced, homeless, drunk and mentally distressed on our streets across America. We did nothing to make the world a better place.
Later, Robert McNamara, the architect of the Vietnam War, in his book Fog of War said, “I made a mistake.”
Ten years ago, George W. Bush, arrogantly and without valid purpose— idiotically attacked Iraq with the same immorality and ignorance as Lyndon Baines Johnson attacked Vietnam. Gulf of Tonkin and Weapons of Mass Destruction—both a bunch of balderdash. Bush should stand trial for war crimes against humanity. He created tens of thousands of “Newtown, CT” events in Iraq.
