Move Over 'Hanoi Jane' Fonda And John Kerry.

It may come as some unwelcome news to the families of the nearly 60,000 Americans who died in the Vietnam War that the whole thing was just a misunderstanding.

Our friends who are Viet Nam Vets should all check this out. I can't understand how any Viet Nam Vet could still support this presidency.

I served from 67 to 71 with some of the best men I have ever known. I remember what is was like to lose friends that I grew up with because I served, and what it was like when we were warned to be careful leaving base. Today, I have many friends who served in the wars from WWII up till now, who I call brothers and sisters. And I wear my cap stating that I am a Vietnam Vet with pride. May God bless all of you who have served our country, one country under God.

One country under god? Now that's just irresponsible. Here's what I think about that! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QI497iAKhY

If anyone knows of help in the Agent Orange area, any response would be helpful. How do you get people to acknowledge abuse until the abuse has killed you? I don't want to get a 'sorry' with a burial check. Why can this Government do anything but half way acknowledge there was abuse to the Veterans by the military higher ups. What happened to the Agent Orange settlement; paid out to attorney's and those who were already dead from the exposure.... Grateful for what little they did do, it did...

Grateful for what little they did do, it did help a few; but what about those 'living' with the remnants of this exposure.... just suffer through it? I wish there were a Civil Court for individual soldiers then the 'with out a doubt' would be out of the conversation.... Oh yes, about those V.A. doctors? Why do they have the right to tell a veteran and their family one commentary and then turn around and write down an opposite one in their file? I will take a lie detector on that one.... truly, they/he lied. How do you expose these things?

I can't pretend to know what your family has been through. I can only try and empathize like I empathize with the Vietnamese. An apology won't cut it. But it will open the gates to enquiries and debate and that will lead to information, awareness and accountability.

Napalm, gang rapes and destruction of Buddhist equivalent of churches that date back hundreds if not thousands of years. Burning of villages, chemical warfare that peeled the skin off Vietnamese, including children. Why is it that white lives are still considered more important than black or brown or yellow lives? It is still happening! One royal baby versus hundreds killed in drone strikes. And even at a personal level, "white power" is still an undercurrent. Why? I thought we have evolved beyond all this!

Amen for that Terry!!! I agree 100% about obama not being a citzen of USA & should not be "OUR" President!!! He needs to go back to his country where he came from. After hearing him say how "HE HATES AMERICANS" in the video he made with him & his muslims friends, I am so afraid of what he's going to do while in "OUR WHITE HOUSE"........GO BACK TO KENYA obama!!!!!!
