    I absolutely got it and also saw the irony of Zeus's post since the most divisive issue of my early years involved our taking over "France's problem".
    Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.

    Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for 'tis better to be alone than in bad company.

    And, neither could we. Those people were fighting for thier freedom. In the south, we set uo a corrupt Diem government. When Ho pleaded with the Ike administration, we refused because of our relationship with France so, they tured to the Communist for help.

    Imperalism after WW2m was no longer acceptable to Indochina. The French thought they could retake them as a colony and learned otherwise.

    I remember when I was a little boy reading in National Geographic about the mess in Laos, Cambodia and Viet Nam.
