News Link • WAR: About that War

Cursed Be the Vietnam War

• LRC Blog (Lew Rockwell Blog)/Lawrence Vancevie
I'm sitting here watching the History Channel series on the Vietnam War while I look through some back issues of Liberty magazine as I do some research. I was thinking how the war was such a terrible and senseless waste of Vietnamese and American lives and trying to think of something to blog about it when I came across this statement on the Vietnam War by Sheldon Richman in the Nov. 1988 issue of Liberty: "The tragedy of Vietnam is not that 'we' did not win it. It is that Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and their people were so presumptuous as to think that Vietnam was theirs to dispose of."

MANY AMERICANS BELIEVE WHAT THE NEWS MEDIA TOLD THEM ABOUT VIET NAM , WELL I WAS THERE SEVERAL TIMES AND I CAN SAY THAT THE U.S.MILITARY WON ALL BATTLES AGAINST THE V.C. ANS NVA , IT WAS A DEMOCRATIS CONGRESS THAT LOST THE WAR BY REFUSING TO GIVE MILITARY AID (WEAPONS , AMMUNITION etc.) TO THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE TO FIGHT AND WIN !
