IRAQ - THE VIETNAM WAR OF THE 21ST CENTURY - THE PERPETUAL "SINK-HOLE"!
IRAQ - Is Just Another Way Of Saying --- It Really Ain't QUICK.
No Shit Sherlock.
No Fake Jake.
You Guessed Her Chester.
George Bush's ill-advised invasion of Iraq on March 20, 2003 was perhaps the biggest foreign policy blunder in our nation's history.
It opened up the Mother Of All Can-Of-Worms.
Is it any wonder that we are now confronted with something like ISIS? They were directly spawned out of this nation's decision to invade Iraq and in the process reduce her to rubble and near-total dysfunction.
Way to go America! The laws of the universe are not to be easily mocked and assuredly there will be atonement to pay by our country for many years to come.
It all goes back to that old saying - knowing when to say when.
Knowing When To Hold Them & When To Fold Them.
For The GOP - That's Just Asking For The Impossible!
After All --- The GOP IS IRAQ - Just Turned Inside Out!
The Upshot Is - America Simply Needs To Lose The GOP - Like A Love Gone Wrong! Or As That Old Blues Saying Goes --- Baby, I Dig You, But I Got To Put You Down!
The July 14, 2011, episode of American Heroes Radio features a conversation with former US Army soldier John Podlaski, the author of Cherries: A Vietnam War Novel.
About the Author
John Podlaski “served in Vietnam during 1970 and 1971 as an infantryman with both the Wolfhounds of the 25th Division and the 501st Infantry Brigade of the 101st Airborne Division. He was awarded the Combat Infantry Badge, Bronze Star, two Air Medals, and a Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry. He has spent the years since Vietnam working in various management positions within the automotive industry and has recently received a BS in Business Administration. He is a member of Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 154. John is the author of Cherries : A Vietnam War Novel
According to Cherries: A Vietnam War Novel, “It's 1970 - they're 18 years old - drafted and trained by the Army Infantry for five months - sent to Vietnam with others their age to fight in an unpopular war - dubbed "Cherries" by their more seasoned peers - nothing had prepared them for this nightmare - forced to become men overnight - working hard to learn the ropes and earn the acceptance and trust of fellow soldiers. Once they come under fire and witness death firsthand, a life-changing transition begins. This eye-opening account offers readers an in-depth look into the everyday struggles of these young infantry soldiers."
On our episode today we will feauture the speech by the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. titled "Why I Am Opposed to the War in Vietnam!"
This speech would bear witness tha Dr. King's stances on the Vietnam War had shifted as he got even more bold to speak the truth the the government of the United States.
On August 27, 2009, Conversations with American Heroes at the Watering Hole will discuss the Vietnam War with former USMC Major Richard Botkin.
Former United States Marine Corps Major Richard Botkin “graduated from the University of Michigan's School of Business. He served from 1980 to 1995 on active and reserve duty as a Marine Corps infantry officer with units to include 2nd Battalion 7th Marines, 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, and 4th Force Reconnaissance Company. His understanding for Southeast Asia has been enhanced by the nine medical/dental mission trips he helped to organize and lead to Cambodia between 1998 and 2007, and four trips to Vietnam, including one with his main Vietnamese character Le Ba Binh, to specifically do research for Ride the Thunder. Botkin currently lives with his family in northern California, where he is an investment advisor for a major brokerage firm.” Richard Botkin is the author of Ride the Thunder: A Vietnam War Story of Honor and Triumph.
According to the book description of Ride the Thunder: A Vietnam War Story of Honor and Triumph, “Richard Botkin breaks new ground in telling the heroic story of a few American and Vietnamese Marines who fought brilliantly and turned the tide of the Vietnam War, only to have policymakers surrender the battlefield. Botkin recounts the exploits of the American Marines and their Vietnamese allies who were largely responsible for thwarting the North Vietnamese invasion of the northern portions of South Vietnam known as the 'Easter Offensive of 1972' in the West that was intended to bring the nation to its knees. These are the men who 'rode the thunder' and almost saved a nation. Botkin tells the story of Captain John Ripley's daring raid to destroy the Dong Ha Bridge; Major Le Ba Binh and his seven hundred Marines bravely holding off more than 20 thousand North Vietnamese troops; Lieutenant Colonel Gerry Turley's leadership and bravery that helped thwart the Easter Offensive and much more.”

NFL Draft War Room: @NFLDraftWRoom
With my co-hosts Heidi and Dave on a well-deserved vacation, frequent caller Dave Hamilton - a/k/a Dave From Massachusetts - will be my guest host on Tuesday.
This episode will be the first of a long line of oral history conversations I've been wanting to do for a while, talking to ordinary people about their experiences and how they remember and were effected by histoical events that happened in their lifetimes.
Please call 347-850-8445 to join the conversation.
About our guest:
Dave Hamilton calls himself the ultimate baby boomer, Vietnam War boy. Raised in Indiana, the Philippines, Hong Kong, and New Jersey. In 1969 Dave graduated from Villanova University, "Magna Cum Barely".
After the US Army as a medic who was lucky and avoided Vietnam, Dave moved to Massachusetts and held a variety of sales and marketing jobs. In the early nineties he returned to Hong Kong with his wife and family, and moved back to Massachusetts in 1994. Dave retired a little over a year ago, working part-time which he believes beats both not working and working full time.
Dave's politics are clearly left of center since being a Goldwater Girl. He has voted for GOP governors but not recently. Never voted for a GOP presidential candidate. Did vote for Ed Brooke, only GOP senate vote.
Dave considers his public school teacher children his greatest accomplishment.
