    A little over 58,000 US troops were killed in Vietnam.

    This weekend is all about recognizing those who lost their lives while in service to this country.

    You and I both know that The Vietnam War was a waste in many, many ways.

    That donesn't take away from those who served there, and especially those who lost their lives there.

    Thanks JFK!

    Let us honor those who this weekend is for.

    It would be like saying American national debt is over 15 Trillion.

    Not technically wrong, but not very accurate.

    Thanks Obama!
    Yeah sure, as if the U.S. was fucking debt free before Jan. 2009. *shrug*

    You always leave out Nixon. You know, the guy with the SECRET Plan to end the Vietnam War in six months.

    You're not educating, you're propagandizing.

    And, I must say, you are not very good at it.

    The Russians are much better at it than you. They actually convinced some unknown number of persons that Pope Francis had 'endorsed' Donald Trump for the Presidency.

    Quick question: How many of those 58000+ died during the Nixon administration?

    And maybe we should throw in the four who died at Kent State.........

    Nixon is to blame, too.

    Not as much as JFK and LBJ, though.
