 Vietnam...Conflict or War

                              
"Texas Board of ED deciding whether to change Vietnam War to Vietnam Conflict" on Thu, Mar 11 2010, 5:51:47 PST



Conflict?

Let those Nay Sayers spend a night on the wire in a monsoon rain with a K-9,
 in red mud up to their ass !
Let them spend a couple of action filled nights at  Khe Sahn or at Hue
or pilot a F-4 over Hanoi ‘s  SA-2 rocket infested air space.
Let them spend  six or seven year at the infamous "Hotel Hanoi."
Let them suffer the rest of their lives with one leg or one arm .
Let them spend the rest of their lives in a hospital mental ward!

Conflict… my ass!

It was Hell…it was WAR!
