The US won in Vietnam
A few days ago, I linked to an essay entitled The End of Civilization by Dave Eriqat, in which he suggested that the Bushies DO know what they're doing--Making sure that the corporate elite survives and profits from the upcoming collapse of society. I suggest you read it now if you haven't already. After that you should read Chris Floyd's account of how the US actually WON the war in Vietnam. Dirt-cheap labor without rights working for multinational corporations--it was the goal all along. All the profits made during the war were an added bonus to the murderous cretins running this country.
