Meet The Neocons
These are the members of the Neocon Party. Oh sure they are also members of the Democrat and Republican parties. But they are all neocons.
I still remember the Vietnam war. No I did not fight in Vietnam. In 1970 I turned 16 and was too young to be drafted. I registered but then the draft was abolished - well at least suspended. However what I do remember about the era was we had to win because to lose would mean communism would take over the world via the domino effect. For those who've never heard the term it's the same notion as "we've got to fight them over there so we don't have to fight them over here." But the biggest thing I remember is on the 3 TV networks running at the time were daily news stories about how we were winning the war. Each day they would announce how many GI's were killed (3 or 4) and how many Viet Cong were killed (3 or 4 hundred). So we were winning everyday of the war but it would not end. Finally, when the Tet Offensive exposed the fact that the war would never end until we left Vietnam Americans took to the streets and demanded it be stopped. In the end the U.S. tried to do massive bombing from the air as they are doing now. What will be the name of the offensive that finally shocks the nation into reality - I can't say. What I know is people younger than 50 don't remember these things so thousand of great young men will have to die to reteach the lesson to this new generation.
