Viet Nam Act 2?

A couple of days ago, I posited in THIS POST that the Moonbats were attempting to recreate the conditions of the Viet Nam era, wherein the populace was propagandized into an ever louder dissent of what our military was doing. I contend that this was done by a MSM with an Anti-American agenda, along with the active anti-war propaganda from the academic elite.

One of my resident readers from the opposite side of the aisle commented:

We arent' trying to recreate the Vietnam era but rather are trying to avoid it. Unfortunately, the Doctrine of Manifest Destiny is a hard idea to kill.

Well, Karlo, Here is proof of my contention that it IS happening all over again.

Take note of these two comments from the story:

“A woman on campus had apparently learned I might be a Marine. When I told her I was, she said, ‘You’re a disgusting human being, and I hope you rot in hell!’ ”
~Marine Sgt. Marco Martinez~ (First Hispanic American since Vietnam to receive the Navy Cross.)


“I’ve had a few conversations about [the War on Terror] in the liberal classrooms I go to everyday,” said McCormick. “A lot of the time I just look at them and tell them that they don’t have any clue what they’re talking about, because all they do is listen to liberal news. I always tell them, ‘If you don’t experience something, how in the hell can you say what will happen?’ ”
~ Marine Cpl. Armand McCormick~(Silver Star recipient)

Just as it was in "my day" in the early 70's, it seems that the peace-at-any cost crowd seem to be based in Academia, and all their protestations to the contrary, they despise the military and show nothing but contempt for those that answered the call to military service.

As Mssrs Hall and Schweizer conclude:

"The Left has adopted the mantra that it opposes the war but supports our soldiers. Those veterans visiting campuses tell a different story; the early fault lines forming on our nation’s campuses do not portend hopeful signs."

"For those who profess to embrace “diversity” and champion allowing “marginalized voices” to be heard, perhaps liberal professors, administrators, and students might learn something were they open-minded enough to listen to the heroes in their midst. Then, and only then, will they correct the tragic mistakes of the Vietnam era that valued politics more than patriots."

Thanks Delfts, the left blames their failures in Korea and Vietnam on the soldiers not the politicians and the media. The U.N. is more than willing to use our troops and logistics to further their ends but willingly abandon us when we need their help. Where but in the U.S. does the media broadcast wartime troop movements and manuevers then cast it's defenders as the aggressors?
