Lumpy, I just read your comments on another thread and you and your band of merry followers amaze me.
If you weren’t in Vietnam, Lumpy, you do NOT know if atrocities were comitted or not. You are just parroting someone else’s words. Any asshole can do that. Were you even alive when GW went into the NG? Do you know what it is like to have a PowerBall type machine on national TV determine what your fate in life will be? Whether you might live or die? NO!
And, how can you define an “atrocity” in Vietnam when you weren’t there? How could you possibly have known that the enemy, who is firing into the belly of your chopper, that you have to take out, is in a hooch with an old toothless woman, two little grandchildren and the one village dog that has not already been eaten? And just happens to be a 13 year old girl who can’t even afford sandals yet was givin a rifle to “do her duty.” Perhaps you would have had the UN call them up on their satellite cell phone first and ask why they are trying to kill YOU. Not America, YOU. Mrs. Lumpy’s only son. That is who is being fired upon. Not Lyndon Johnson. YOU. Your kids future father. The Lumpster.
You can spout off all you like about politics Lumpy, but as far as Vietnam is concerned, you do NOT have the right to an opinion. Stick to your political rhetoric that you do have the right to an opinion on. Otherwise, stay out of discussions that you have not earned the right to assert so-called “facts” on because you don’t know shit.
