Speaking of emp, I just read a novel, one of a series by Brad Taylor, where they have this terrific gizmo called the sparrow.  Basically it is a hand held limited range emp device.  Now there's an arm we should bear.

Along similar lines, I watched a promising new series on USA called Treadstone, which is a spin off of the Ludlum concept.  It looks promising, and it's tomorrow night.  As for tonight, there is hockey on NHL network, because I can't imagine who would be interested in the boring pats and jets game, unless you have a strange addiction to an inflatable oblong.

Go back to the seventies for when we last betrayed a battlefield ally.  Who was the betrayed group then?  Anyone, anyone?  And who was potus at the time?

Anyone?  No history buffs or those who lived through it?

 i tried.  i guess i’ll stop thinking and just drink beer and watch YOUR new england patriots tonight (rooting for the Jets though).  Question:  John Elway and the Broncos are playing against Tom Brady’s Pats ... who do you want to win?   (i know you’d prefer they both lose).

Don't watch you are only encouraging them.  It would have to be a tie, and Brady gets hurt for the season and Elway breaks his hip in a fall in the luxury booth.  But I am a softie.

Yes, you screwed the Hmong the very minute Nixon pulled out of a Civil War the USA, S. Korea and Australia should not have been in. There were no favors for the rural people’s in S. Vietnam either. Caught between a rock during the day and a hard place at night.

 

Most people involved in that war should have read Bernard Fall’s ‘Hell in a Very Small Place’ and ‘Street Without Joy’. And paid attention to his conclusions. The book the ‘Ten Thousand Day War’  is also a great book on what used to be called French Indochina.

 

Uncle Ho was originally friendly to the West and in particular the USA when FDR and Truman were in the White House.
