Yes, I did time in that war myself, and find you to be one of those who came home to the onslaught of negativism towards veterans, and caved to the popular think of that time. That kind of thought from the "rebel", liberal, campus idiots out to, mainly, portray themselves as "neo-heros" of the political left was a simple effort get self exposure through the always sensationalisticly driven press. I never did buy into it.

The Korean War was the first step in this direction. We had the war won and politicians decided to let China and North Korea off the hook with a compromised settlement. We are paying in spades for that "settlement" today. Compromise has sunk many a boat

"Compromise" is the tactic used very successfully in another arena. Islam throughout all of their sordid history up to the very present date is using the same approach. It is now a populist approach to all things anti-American, and pro Liberal, Islam, homosexual, abortion, communist, and anything else sleazy. A soft gutted American population hasn't the stomach to fight for what once was dearly bought. It looks to me that we can kiss it all good-bye.

We're talking about a country and western world that has lost all perspective and any sense of a "moral" base. Anything goes.

That thinking has spread like a viral cancer to an American public that is largely tuned into self-indulgence and took a temporary hiatus towards media presentations of present day politics. Plain and simple - simplisticly informed with a temporarily popular look at "politics" delivered via a sappy fauning press.
