To Loree:
Viet Nam was not a noble cause. it was an imperialistic war and Americans are not imperialists (Nation building is best left to the British). The Viet Nam war was fought for the Dow Jones Industrial Average. It's not that we were on the "wrong" side, it's just that there was no "right" side. After the French were defeated in 1954, Ho Chi Minh actually thought America would take his side because of his perception that the Vietnamese were simply expelling a European power from their soil just as we had expelled the British.
My feeling is that if we are going to assist a country in blowing itself up then we should start the rebuilding by forcing the new government to adopt the U.S Bill of Rights and ensure that their people are afforded those liberties.
Anyway, I'm drifting off into politics again and I didn't want to do that. I am sure that you are shocked that a right wing, Conservative (did I spell it right this time?) republican could write an anti-war poem.

Hi Jack,

I see that you've read my other post to you in the "Freedom" thread btw'n you and Denny. "Bien."

Please observe from now ON, ok? Today's Papers or others are best for that stuff.

We've had SO MUCH STRIFE over here recently & are all now *just beginning to heal,* that the LAST thing we need here is ....

any more content that could work up nasty disagreements... (esp'y when they are NOT about the poems or contents thereof...)

Thanks for understanding, as I know you do :-)
