They were right after all April 2, 2007

It really is Vietnam.

Harry Reid threatens to cut funding for the war.

Just like Case and Church in 73.  A war started by members of their party.

“The Americans have withdrawn.  This is what marks the opportune moment”.

 – North Vietnamese Communist Party Secretary Le Duan, December, 1974.

Without direct aid, money and logistical support, South Vietnam could not hold against the NVA.  First they took the central highlands and the Ia Drang.

Then they took Saigon. 

Millions dead in the killing fields of Cambodia.  Highway 7B, the “convoy of death”, civilians evacuating from the central plains.  The boat evacuees.  Decades of slaughter, misery, and “re-education”.

We’ve known this was coming since November. It’s why Al Qaeda and the Sunnis cheered when the Dems came to power. And it’s why I find it very hard to forgive the Republican Party, who spent their time snuffling in the trough instead of getting their act together.

Exactly. What I find hard to forgive is that they were more afraid of losing their political power than they are of losing the war. Defending the war was too hard for these pathetic cowardly shits, so they just ran away from the fight and raided the treasury.

Ditto. The Republicans don’t have the excuse of a damaged Nixon presidency to blame their woes on. In retrospect it was quite easy for Church and Case to get veto-proof votes. After Nixon resigned it was all his fault, all his war.

This particular class of Rs deserves as much blame for abdicating their responsibilities as the Ds do for their never-ending assaults on the country.

[…] He makes the point about the future and whether we take our obligation seriously.  I pointed how the North Vietnamese were willing to wait us out. […]
