It's Vietnam all over again.....
I know what I'm talking about. I'm 70 and served in Vietnam. Sending American troops to the Middle East is every bit as stupid as sending them to Vietnam was. Trillions of dollars and many lives simply wasted. Vietnam gave us nothing and Iraq and Afghanistan will give us nothing except a reputation as wasteful idiots.

Getting Bin Laden was necessary but prosecuting a war accomplishes nothing. It only impoverishes us both financially and in reputation. I was drafted but today's troops are all volunteers so they have no one to blame but themselves. I would have never gone into the military during Vietnam if there was no draft. Even as a teenager I could see it was a pointless waste of American resources and a huge mistake. The Pentagon Papers proved me right, so did history.

I thought the documentary was very well done. We have to stop these politicians from taking us to war on little or no evidence of a quick and positive outcome.
