Re: It was a civil war Cassowary.

You appear to be keen on giving the whole country to a Socialist dictatorship. Unjust, irrational accusation against me Cassowary. I refused to participate in any of the Vietnam Moratorium marches and rallies out here while the Vietnam War was being fought out specifically because even then I was u...

Re: It was a civil war Cassowary.

I don’t regard the Vietnam war to be only a civil war. It was also a globalwar between democracy and dictatorship and between two opposing ideologies - capitalism and socialism. It was what should have remained a localized civil war that was symbolically transferred into something that resembled th...

Re: It was a civil war Cassowary.

So was Berlin, not to mention Nagasaki and Hiroshima. How come I don’t hear you complaining? You want the US to win wars without killing people. I know what it is. You want Socialists to win. That’s why you object to US intervention in Vietnam. Specious comparison! Nazi Germany was an aggressor sta...

Re: Singapore the big winner and Hong Kong the big sinner?

https://www.asiatimes.com/2019/07/article/singapore-the-big-winner-of-hong-kongs-chaos/ The mammoth protests against a proposed extradition bill that have gripped Hong Kong since early June would be unthinkable in Singapore, which strictly enforces laws that curb public protests and political expre...

Re: The swamp is fighting for its life

Mean while an anonymous amicus brief was presented by someone unknown except through their lawyer demanded to see the 2000 pages of documents because their name *might* be in those documents so they could have their name redacted. A lot of the attacks on Trump strikes me as contrived and fake. Like...

Cassowary’s version of dialectic materialism

(...)The Socialist/Communist ideology is the biggest killer of all ideologies and I have explained why to you so many times. It goes against human nature. We are not meant to be collectivized. We are all selfish. That's they way we are made. To go against this requires a lot of compulsion.(...) You...

Re: It was a civil war Cassowary.

You prefer to leave Vietnam to the tender mercies of the Socialists/Communists than to try to save because of the lives a war will cost. With hindsight I would have preferred to have seen Vietnam left alone so that the Vietnamese could have sorted out their own issues. You do realize, I hope, that ...

Re: "It's an ill wind....."

The objective was to save Vietnamese lives.... But the consequence was that they unnecessarily destroyed far more Vietnamese lives. Once the US war machine gets into gear; like a Frankenstein monster let loose they never seem to care how many they kill. You prefer to leave Vietnam to the tender mer...
