    Black and White, nice touch.

    Since it was in color. But then the US under any president does that same kind of crap all of the time. Pres. Obama is just the most recent version.

    They all do the same thing because they are all controlled by the military industrial complex.

    We were the ones that stopped him from doing much for Libya or Syria—thankfully.

    Yes, we finally got over the “Vietnam Syndrome” and now we do it again in Iraq.

    1962 except for the type of helicopter, the Obama figure, and the evacuees.

    Appreciate your fine satire. Hope others do as well. Peace Keeping: deluded euphemism.

    A few hundred (or fewer) “advisors” into Afghanistan would have been far more effective at getting bin Laden, and taken away the excuse to invade Iraq.

    Sending in “advisors” was how the mission creep went with Vietnam. By the end of it the US was bombing three countries and killing millions in each.

    Learn some history. When the French left Indochina, the agreement was for a divided Vietnam until elections could be held. The West aided the South Vietnamese gov’t in postponing the elections because it was clear that Ho Chi Minh would win. When the North Vietnamese attacked, aided by the large numbers of South Vietnamese who also opposed the Saigon gov’t, they drove out the French forces and our adventure of “military advisers” began, until it became obvious that the effort was unsustainable.

    So when we withdrew (two years before this scene), it was because we were tired of propping up a corrupt government that was not representative of the mass of Vietnamese people, not because they asked us to or because we felt they were at a point of self-sustaining, but, most important in this comparison, we had not toppled a government that had previously kept the nation unified.

    Hussein, for all his faults, had kept Iraq in place and we disrupted that. There is a difference between propping up something that cannot work and destroying something that did work.
