I think that my repetitions of this has been rejected by those on the left side of the political aisle who somehow dicided that the war in Viet Nam could not have been won. (They generally think the same about Iraq).
I assure them, however, that the lesson was not lost on our enemies and on most of our potential allies in the war against extreme Islamists. Here is but a tiny bit of proof:
Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, Hezbollah’s leader, added: “I advise all those who place their trust in the Americans to learn the lesson of Vietnam ...and to know that when the Americans lose this war --and lose it they will, Allah willing -- they will abandon them to their fate, just like they did to all those who placed their trust in them throughout history."
The Democrats in Congress have been trying to embrace defeat and to stab in the back the guys we asked to stand up to Islamist extremism in Iraq and to abandon our former allies yet again. We must not do that! Ever again. More reason this presidential election is so important.
