Carol Platt Liebau: Forcing Us to Lose the War

Forcing Us to Lose the War

This article is a frightening glimpse at the shape of things to come if the Democrats win the House of Representatives. Some among them -- including putative chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Charles Rangel -- are willing to force a defeat for us, and a victory for the terrorists, in Iraq by simply refusing to fund the war. Note this isn't the first time Democrats have flirted this with idea.

Remember also that this technique is the way they forced a defeat for the USA (and the South Vietnamese) in Vietnam. The only difference, of course, is that in those dark days in the '70's, we didn't have to worry about emboldened enemies taking advantage of our weakness to attack innocents in our own homeland.

Sorry Carol, you should re-read the history of the Vietnam war or get yourself treatment.

do you mean the re-written fantasy history from John Kerry's buddies? What part don't you get about the FACT that the communists overran South Vietnam as soon as we left and murdered hundreds of thousands? Compassionate leftwing idiot.

Wearing someone elses military uniform or medals today, eLarson?

The Paris accords stated that the South Vietnamese would take over their own defense and that we would step in to aid them if needed.

When the North Vietnamese army violated these accords, our stirling congress refused to allow the military the funds to enforce our promises.

This congressional ineptitude led to the boat people and Pol Pot.

President Nixon made some serious mistakes, Vietnam wasn't one of them.
