    And how the Killing Fields became the Killing Fields?

    The Killing Fields Museum - Learn from Cambodia - Home

    It's because Democrats decided to just withdraw completely from Vietnam. Condemning not only many Vietnamese to death but MANY Cambodians.

    Whether you agree with Vietham or not, Vietnam left us with one very important historical lesson.

    You can't just withdraw militarily from a country whether you agree with that war or not. To do so condemns not just hundreds but MILLIONS to their deaths.

    Now Obama seeks to repeat that horrible lesson in history for no other reason than to shore up his base for an election that (right now) he is likely to lose.

    Key general calls Iraq pullout plan a 'disaster' - Washington Times

    There is a reason why the Democrats didn't gain politically after pulling out of Vietnam. It's because too many Americans saw the attrocities in tht aftermath.

    That's one of the reasons Kerry lost in 2008. Too many people remember Kerry's hand in us just pulling out of Vietnam

    Does Obama care how many people have died in Iraq?

    Does he care that every Iraqi who risked their lives to help our military hunt down terrorists will be condemned to possibile imprisonment, torture and death?

    Does he care that every Iraqi that ignored danger to vote in those elections will now have their lives and their children's lives in danger?

    Does he care, Iraq will probably be taken over by another tyrant like Hussein?

    Oh hell no, he doesn't care. All he cares about is winning an election.

    The IDIOTS who think this is a good thing, Obama just withdrawing.

    How many times must this happen before LIBERAL MORONS crack open a history book and learn from our past mistakes?

    Remember this in 2012.

    Remember and VOTE.

    Kerry said that there would only be 10,000 people killed if we pulled out...oopsies.

    Vietnam was a war won for the Communists by the LMSM

    So getting another another 50,000 Americans killed turning Cambodia into another Vietnam would have been a good thing?

    How would that have worked, exactly?

    i heard of the killing fields.

    i heard of the bombing of cambodia, also.

    i know why the rural population hated the city-dwellers and why the KR emptied pnomh penh within days after the capture.

    i know who ended the KR regime.

    i know who installed lon nol.

    i know who was in charge from 1968-1975 in the US.

    i know that you, teabaggerspamury, are not to be taken seriously.

    Also, in terms of full disclosure, we had a bit to do with that.

    We overthrew the monarchy of NOrodom Sihanouk in favor of the Khmer Republic of Lon Nol, who turned out to be completely incapable of running the country. Then we bombed the snot out of the Eastern part of the country (trying to shut down the "ho chi Mihn Trail"), creating millions of refugees and making them ripe for recruitment by the Khmer Rogue and Pol Pot. The killing fields, as they say, where the rural people of the east avenging themselves on the Urban people in the west of the country.

    Whenever people want to complain about some slaughter perpertrated by 'communists', they usually leave out that there were years of war preceeding these incidents that had dehumanized and bruatlized the people involved. Russia had a decade of war before the Stalin Purges. China had two decades of war before Mao did his shit. Life becomes cheap and bad things follow.

    We are never that far from the savage, as much as we like to tell ourselves otherwise.

    Exactly.

    And now Obama seeks to do the same with Iraq.

    It doesn't really matter whether you agree with either war.

    The results of just pulling out is quite clear.

    It is the ultimate betrayal of people who risked their lives to help the US who will get nothing out of it but torture and death.

    Not only will it be a disaster in the short run, in the long run it will send a CLEAR message that you should NEVER help the US catch terrorists, because they US won't have your back if you do.

    It is the ultimate in short-sighted thinking. Obama is doing it for NOTHING but short-term political gain.

    ANY gain we had hoped to have fighting terrorism in the ME, will be lost for GENERATIONS because of Obama's electorial narcissism.

    It's crime against humanity.

    It makes me as sick (no, sicker) as when Bush 41 just pulled out of Iraq after Gulf War I and left the Kurds to freeze and die in the mud.

    One of the reaons I didn't vote for Bush 41 in '92.

    I'm heart sick over the human suffering he has condemned so many people to in Iraq over this. I'm really am heart sick over it.

    God help those people, because Obama sure won't.

    After Tet, when we inflicted one of the worst military defeats on our enemy in the history of warfare, Cronkite and the LMSM called it for the NVA. That's what lost Vietnam for us. A LMSM sympathetic to people killing our soldiers.

    Thankfully, I lived to see the destruction of the LMSM media monopoly.

    Don't you get it??????????

    What am I saying, of course you don't.

    It doesn't matter whether you agree with Vietnam.

    The fact was WE WERE THERE!

    You can't just pull out and leave millions of people defenseless!

    I mean we STILL have people in Germany.

    I'm not saying that's right or wrong. I'M SAYING THAT'S THE REALITY!

    That's the way foreign policy works, whether you like it or not (and trust me I don't)

    It's just reality.

    You can't just pull out.

    It's not only a military disaster, it's a public relations disaster, it's a foreign policy disaster.

    It's human casualty disaster.

    Do you get or even CARE how many people are going to die, just to make you happy over your hatred for Bush?????????

    I not only think you don't know how many people will die, I DON'T EVEN THINK YOU WOULD CARE HOW MANY PEOPLE WOULD DIE EVEN IF YOU DID KNOW.

    All you freaking care about is your hatred for Bush.

    You left disgust me to my very heart. You disgust me so, it even sickens my heart more.

    How can we learn such horrible lessons in history as the killing fields of Cambodia JUST TO REPEAT IT AGAIN, because the left is too selfish and arrogant to learn from any of it's own mistakes???????
