I was home watching TV today and on the History channel, shows about the Vietnam war played much of the day. The news stories of were uniformly opposed to American involvement. At one point they showed how crossing into Cambodia, allowed American forces to capture huge arms depots from the North Vietnamese. Essentially Cambodia was a safe zone where North Vietnamese would hide their forces and equipment. This move into Cambodia should have been hailed as a military victory, but instead it led to non-stop student protests and condemnation from MSM news sources. According to History channel, Americans were treated to a non-stop barrage of pictures of disfigured American soldiers; 90 percent of all news shows were devoted to this narrative every day. When you think of Communist infiltrators affecting political decisions within our government, a much more successful infiltration affected our news culture and Hollywood. No wonder we pulled out of Vietnam in defeat.
In recent conflicts, we went into Iraq and quickly succeeded in most of our military goals. At the time this war began, most of the American public were solidly behind this action and news stories were also largely supportive of our armed forces but, in time, this changed. Obama achieved the destruction of all American achievements from the Bush era and under the current barrage of defeatist propaganda I don't see how we can defeat anyone.
We have a divisive leadership in the White House, MSM works towards same goal of weakening our country, and the culture permeating colleges and entertainment is also one of defeatism. Under present conditions, we can only lose. We must change our situation at home, if we are to survive as a nation and if we are to save our civilization.
