    @Doc, that was very interesting and hard to believe it was so long ago. The scenery in some of those photos is stunning. Why are some of the most physically beautiful places in the world such hellholes?

    There are several members of the IOTW ALUMNI that had a hand in adding to their scrape metal stockpile from the air. I won’t mention any names but you guys that crewed the B-52′s and piloted the A-7 Corsair, and F-4 Phantom and the A-4 Skyhawk. Thanks for you service and support.

    I know one of my family that served in USAF during Viet Nam would like to have dropped Hanoi Jane out of a B-52. According to him sometimes they actuallt dropped buckets of crap along with the bombs and they regarded Jane as a POS too.

    The Communist forces weren’t “motivasted”, they were coerced. “Serve or die.” “Serve or we kill all your family members.”

    None of the Useful Idiots who fell for the Democrat(Communist) Party’s line of bullshit in the 2008 and 2012 elections would be able to understand and comprehend what the sum of these photgraphs represent:

    FORTY YEARS LATER and these Communist Paradises remain Third-World Shitholes with valuable bridges remaining unrepaired. Hows that for Communist efficiency?

    I loath & despise everything the Democrat Party stands for and I spit upon its members as well as the Useful Idiots who vote Democrat.
