REMINDER IN HISTORY
General VoNguyen Giap.
General Giap was a brilliant, highly respected leader
of the North Vietnam military. The following quote
is from his memoirs currently found in the
Vietnam war memorial in Hanoi :
'What we still don't understand is why you Americans
stopped the bombing of Hanoi . You had us on the
ropes. If you had pressed us a little harder,
just for another day or two, we were ready
to surrender! It was the same at the < /span>
battle of TET. You defeated us!
We knew it, and we thought
you knew it.
But we were elated to notice your media was
helping us. They were causing more disruption in
America than we could in the battlefields. We
were ready to surrender.
You had won!'
General Giap h as published his memoirs and confirmed
what most Americans knew. The Vietnam war was not
lost in Vietnam -- it was lost at home. The
same slippery slope, sponsored by the US media,
is currently underway. It exposes the
enormous power of a Biased Media to
cut out the heart and will of
the American public.
A truism worthy of note:
Do not fear the enemy,
For they can take only your life.
Fear the media,
For they will destroy your honor.
Maybe true, and maybe not true. But actuality quite true in essense. It does this every war. I still say Bush was right in Afghanistan and others about not bending to the media. They suck. I'd have flipped them off too. _________________ IF YOU DON'T STAND BEHIND OUR TROOPS, PLEASE, FEEL FREE TO STAND IN FRONT OF THEM !!!
i love when reporters go to the field and get some 'action' then come report back how epic and intense it was. Mean while the soldiers who were there wake up and do it again the next day, for the next year. And, dont think twice about it.
