    Five days before U.S. and South Vietnamese troops made their surprise move into Cambodia on April 29, 1970, then-President Richard M. Nixon got the approval of the top Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee for that action, according for documents released yesterday by the Nixon library.

    And who cares, anyway? Imperialism is imperialism, and the two parties in this country are effectively two factions of one party.
