America won the Vietnam War.

Oh, I know, we fled in disgrace[sic]. But not until we had made the North’s supporters, Russia and China, expend so much energy that they were not able to expand communism during the war. At the beginning of the war, in 1961, there were more than a dozen communist countries in Asia. Today there are less than five.

In 1960, John F. Kennedy is inaugurated as President and says, "...we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to insure the survival and the success of liberty." Worthy and noble goals, which were betrayed by his own Party and by many who voted for him. A majority of those that opposed the Vietnam War were led astray by a select few that I consider a fifth column. The media and protest leaders like John Kerry undermined the will of this country to fight the good fight. We did not lose that war on the ground over there, but we lost it in the streets and on the TV at home.

Tell a Vietnam Vet that he did not lose the war and he will argue with you. But the Vet did not lose the war, if the war was a "loss" the politicians did it, the protestors did it and the Democratic (Division) Party did it. The Vet is an American hero and should be treated that way. We need to quit telling him that we lost that war.

I see the same fifth column at work today. I see the same forces of misinformation and dissent at work against the troops fighting the War on Terror, of which the “Battle” for Iraq is but one part. I see the Diversity Party hard at work dividing this country once again. The difference this time is this time it is a fight for our survival and not just for a worthy and noble cause like Liberty. I see a Party, so desperate for the Presidency that undermining the WOT, endangering our troops and emboldening the enemy, is worth it.

Unity or Diversity? You make the call. You can't celebrate our similarities while pointing out our differences.
