  1. I read James H. Willbanks article with great interest. The only thing that bothered me about the article is the sentence stating that the United States cannot escape a large measure of the blame for South Vietnam’s defeat. Mr. Willbank should differentiate between the American fighting man and the U.S. politicians. Had the war been left in the hands of the military it would have been over quickly. However it was run by politicians who let 58,000+ Americans die in vain. Apparently Washington does not learn from the past as evidenced by the quagmire we are now drowning in in Iraq and Afghanistan.

  2. Frankly I think that’s absoulltey good stuff.
