Uh? Nixon ended VietNam. You have to give it to the republicans on that one. The president before him LBJ got in on an 'ending the war' ticket, and did not. Nixon was a bastard, and his administration started the ties with China, but GWB is far worse IMO. Neocons make regular republicans look pretty cool in comparison.forge wrote:I guess because I read a fair bit of Hunter S.

Hence my lack of excitement about Obamas promise to pull out, on some long schedule. At least Biden his VP actually had a plan for Iraq as far as what to do about the Sunni, Shiite conflicts and other ethnic rivalries there. Hopefully some of that emerges in Obamas policies if he gets elected.....Hunter S. Thompson rules BTW, too bad he killed himself.
