Really now, how many Americans really cared about the Vietnamese being free or not? How many American boys would have been happy to go over there and give their lives to free the Vietnamese? How many had such idealistic ideals? They don't know what they fought the Korean war for either, which they lost. They also don't know why they fought the Grenadian war or why they fought the Panamanian war. They don't know what they fought these wars for.--And they know just as little about why they're now going to be made to fight and die. I don't even think most of them would be willing to go there and die for the oil.
