Ken Burns The Vietnam War

Recommended Posts

I have been watching it this week.  My father was sent there right after I was born .  I did not know that we had been sending funds to Vietnam since the Korean War.  I did not know the original President we supported Diem was as much a dictator as uncle ho.  As I watch it and see the mistakes made etc, I think the original US General over there was right when he called it a manure sandwich.  I still think and even more so that it was good we tried for China was pushing for global communism.  I wonder if our involvement there may have helped the Russians desire to be more peaceful.  I also think that without it we would not be doing as well as we are in the middle east right now.
