China got the oil contracts ..this kid is a munchkin
Tillerson sees progress in fixing Iran deal with Europeans
..how many were there? which ones have we lost?
Vietnam-- was lost before we got involved ..it was unwinnable
so we won 2 out of 3
perhaps you don't know much history, but there are not too many ''recent'' examples of a country invading another and winning--completely
with regards to Vietnam being unwinnable--and invading countries not being able to win completely, if at all::
to give a short explanation:
we gave Nam enormous $$$$ and military help-
---naval to include powerful carriers/troops/supplies/training/construction of bases/B52s bombing North and South/total air and naval superiority!!! /etc etc---the North didn't have to win-just not lose!! we could not win there
on the other hand we have the Israeli-Arab wars where the US did NOT give anywhere near the help that we gave Nam
--Israel was outnumbered in all categories:
Israel was at a great disadvantage in being surrounded and having a narrow front
but the Israelis kicked a$$ big time!!!
...now--you tell me the difference between the Israelis and the South Vietnamese
how did SVietnam lose with the greatest power on earth fighting for it??
Vietnam was lost the day we invaded. It was not our war and we had no business being there. Classic example of American imperialism that cost of the lives of 57,000 Americans and God knows how many Vietnamese.
I have to agree the one of the most dumbest wars ever, Vietnam is turning out fine, I really blame the French .
Supposedly one of the safest countries on Earth for Americans to visit.
Trump has been saying the same crap for over a year
What is taking him so long?
It's better to have the embassy in an actual building, rather than under a tarp.
Not enough dead American soldiers to your liking, huh? Sick fuck.
America probably should withdraw from the Iran deal. We are no longer leaders in the West, and Trump can't be trusted. Hopefully the remaining countries in the deal stay put, instead of backing out and letting Iran have its Uranium and centrifuges back.
