I watched Ken Burns' multi-part 'Vietnam' series on PBS... It wasn't easy to watch, but confirmed pretty much what I suspected all along, especially LBJ's and Robert McNamara's incompetence. John Kennedy was right about Johnson, a total ignoramus.

I recommended the series to acquaintances of mine, none of whom wanted the truth confirmed to them. They preferred to forget about it, like a bad dream. So here we are in the 16th year of military occupation in Afghanistan.

Lady Byrd Johnson took a failing Brown & Root Construction Co. and the failing Johnson Ranch, and made them both profitable. Vietnam was a boon to them, that's why in went on and on.
