…….Jane Fonda gave her first speech (of ten) on Radio Hanoi.
That dangerous fool Lyndon Johnson didn’t want to be in Vietnam. There are two reported incidents in which he had the message relayed that he wanted out: Once by Secretary of State Dean Rusk and once by Vice President Hubert Humphry.
But the North Vietnamese didn’t take him seriously; they would not negotiate in good faith. Because people like Bill Clinton, Jane Fonda, Bill Ayers and John Kerry were undermining the power and authority of the President.
So, Johnson ramped the troop level up from about 30K to 500K. To fight a war he didn’t believe in. As I said, a dangerous fool.
Nixon ran on a platform that included getting us out of Vietnam. Looking at the historical record, you can see that he and Kissinger were frantic to do just that. He would have sold his mother to the Arab slave traders. He did sell out the third most liberal democracy in the Far East: Taiwan.
(Yes, Bunkie. There are Arab slave traders. There have been ever since Mohammad came out of the mountains and there still are today. The reason that you don’t know about it is that stating that fact would hurt their feelings. And nothing is more important than the feelings of Moslems. That’s why the number one mission of NASA is making Moslems feel good about themselves!)
Finally, Nixon had to make the war painful before the North Vietnamese would negotiate in good faith.
So….liberals caused the war in Vietnam to drag on for almost ten years longer than it had to. They are responsible for 50,000 American deaths and hundreds of thousands, maybe millions of Vietnamese deaths.
And for what? COMMUNISM JUST DOESN’T WORK! Communist Vietnam is morphing into a capitalist/fascist country. Hopefully it will continue to a democratic country.
Jane Fonda and the others have never apologized for all the deaths and destruction that they have caused. In deed, they continue. Take for example what they did to poor GW.
Take a moment today to pray for our country.
