    I have gradually gotten over thinking of them as The Enemy.

    There are other Asian food options.

    They CHEATED on the cease-fire in spring of 1975. ("Peace is at hand") Henry K. Dec 1972

    58,000 families of dead American servicemen would not be so kind.

    IMO - the Vietnamese govt should make an official apology for breaking the cease-fire................................

    Change your calendar. It's not 1967 anymore.

    It's been a while since I ate bĂșn. Think I'll go buy some this weekend.

    Yes, I do. I hated the Cong and the NVA, not the Vietnamese people. I worked with many good people in South Vietnam, people I believed (and still do) were worth protecting, worth fighting with and for. They were loyal to us, trusted us, and it broke my heart when America abandoned them.

    I have some dear friends yet, a Vietnamese family who managed to get out after the war was over; they are wonderful people, who went through hell to get here. Their children were born here, as American as you and I; they have never known their ancestral homeland, though they still speak the language. I see them living here in freedom now, and I think that is what we fought for, after all.

    Do you have any idea how many Vietnamese worked with us, helped us, and treated us with nothing but kindness? Do you understand the price a lot of them paid for that; how many were tortured and executed in the "re-education camps"?The survivors of that, are the ones that are over here; they were NOT the enemy. Listen, I fought there, and those refugees damn sure don't owe me an apology, because my country left them to die. If anything, I owe them one, for not doing better for them, but not one of them has ever asked. What the hell is your malfunction?

    I'm having another night sitting up with demons and ghosts from back then anyway, and right now, I hope you'll excuse me for not being too happy with this shit you posted, because at the moment, it is making me feel just a bit sick.
