Who's Still Fighting the Vietnam War?

In Response to the Dem's latest blog:

As far as I can tell, the Republicans are the ONLY ones who ever fought the Vietnam War. Your predecessors were content to hand it over to the communists in cowering fear in pretty much the same fashion as you did China.

Also.. I believe it was the democratic candidate in the last election that brought up the Vietnam War in some attempt to portray himself as a war hero.

And upon close examination, it seems that the democrats brought up the issue of Swift boats in their response to DERepublican's Freedom Demonstrations thread, not the Republicans.

Come on, guys.. at least get your stories straight.. even if you fail to grasp truth!

    In his Freedom Demonstrations thread, he linked Swiftboats, promting our response and starting this whole mess.

    I'm not going to argue Cold War history, other than to say in the same vein Kennedy got us into Vietnam, Johnson fought it (and yes, misled the American people), and Nixon, after further escalating, "lost" it in the same sense we "lost" China. Both sides made their mistakes.

    Can we get "back to the future" now? I think the 21st century has the potential to be JUST as interesting.

    Sometimes you have to look in the past to see where you're going... and it looks like the Democrats are still acting the same and aren't going anywhere. This is why Republicans are the party of thinkers, and the party of ideas... not the party of "no"

    If you want to get specific about actions in Nixon's administration regarding Vietnam, it was the democratic congress that failed to fight the war.
