I had a thought the other day. Don't the vast majority of Americans feel that the Vietnam war was a huge mistake that ultimately accomplished too little for too much?
And if so, why is everyone so worked up about the Vietnam records of Bush and Kerry? I mean shouldn't these guys be bragging about how they managed to get out of Vietnam early by making claims on any wound they could, or bragging about having avoided Vietnam all-together?
Wasn't Vietnam supposed to be a war nobody but Johnson and Nixon wanted? Doesn't that mean that the people who subverted it by avoidance or abbreviation of service were the heros (as opposed to the guys who delusionally believed they were fighting commies and signed on for like six consecutive tours of combat duty?
