These generals have nothing to say because they let it happen to themselves.
Well, I did one, my son, the other. Maybe we should think about the fact ‘Nam is now one of our major trading partners, and they even make parts now for our helicopters!
Boy, nobody saw THIS coming, huh?
As was predicted by literally everyone who had any sense of history, before the first troops arrived there.
Déjà vu … I still remember the “Five O’Clock Follies” held by the US government in Saigon’s Rex Hotel during that war …
Mr. Military says, “Boys and girls, can you say, ‘Quagmire’”?
Come on all of you big strong men,Uncle Sam needs your help again.He’s got himself in a terrible jam,way down yonder in Afghanistan.So put down your books and pick up a gunand we’re gonna have a whole lot of fun.
And it’s 1, 2, 3 what are we fighting for?Don’t ask me I don’t give a damn,next stop might be Iran.

According to a popular conspiracy theory, if JFK had been re-elected, he was going to start pulling troops out of Vietnam and the MIC didn’t want him to do that, which led to his assassination.

Rotten Republican neo-cons got us into this mess and kept us there.

The Deep State Arms Makers want to have war so they can sell their weapons.
We would face major unemployment if we just walked away from this “war” on our best and brightest (and young) people. This admin (and to a large extent the prior one) seems intent on rewriting the aphorism to “war of the people, by the people and against the people.”
