@washingtonpost  @CraigMWhitlockA @DavidSFallisnd  this from Craig is a brilliantly succinct sum up of Vietnam and Afghanistan: "We got stuck in a long, stalemated war in an Asian country we didn't understand very well, fighting an amorphous enemy. "

Hoang Nguyen, who said he served as a translator for the U.S. Army in the Vietnam War, said he was scammed out of his Fort Worth home by a couple who cleaned his house several times. Now he’s trying to get it back.

“Vietnam should remind us of the costs of wishful thinking in the final stages of war.”

How do you end a bad war? George C. Herring revisits the history of the U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam and the lessons it holds for postwar Afghanistan.

Wrote home from Vietnam, about Pentagon Papers: "don’t think that they will help end this war but they may start some people questioning all of the garbage that is thrown at them every day by the government and by commercial sources."

How does Da Nang Dick (Blumenthal) serve on the Senate Judiciary Committee when he defrauded the American people about his so called War Hero status in Vietnam, only to later admit, with tears pouring down his face, that he was never in Vietnam. An embarrassment to our Country!

How can “Senator” Richard Blumenthal, who went around for twenty years as a Connecticut politician bragging that he was a great Marine war hero in Vietnam (then got caught and sobbingly admitted he was neither a Marine nor ever in Vietnam), pass judgement on anyone? Loser!

I have now spent more time in Vietnam than Da Nang Dick Blumenthal, the third rate Senator from Connecticut (how is Connecticut doing?). His war stories of his heroism in Vietnam were a total fraud - he was never even there. We talked about it today with Vietnamese leaders!

I was right about Vietnam. I was right about Iraq. I will do everything in my power to prevent a war with Iran. I apologize to no one.

Senator Richard Blumenthal must talk about his fraudulent service in Vietnam, where for 12 years he told the people of Connecticut, as their Attorney General, that he was a great Marine War Hero. Talked about his many battles of near death, but was never in Vietnam. Total Phony!

On this Vietnam War Veterans Day, we celebrate the brave Vietnam Veterans and all of America’s Veterans. Thank you for your service to our great Nation!

I have seen social movements for change - the Civil Rights Movement, protests over the Vietnam War, the fall of communism in Europe, apartheid in South Africa. This is often how a new reality begins.
