I may have lost (misplaced) my new kosher for Passover toothbrush and toothpaste, which are easy to replace, but I'll never forget the overconfidence and complete misreading of the threat and effectiveness of the Vietcong versus the well-equipped modern American armed forces. Those scrappy ill-equipped guerrilla-fighters defeated the Americans in more ways than one.
So when I see headlines like "Obama: Iran Can’t Fight Us, Iran: Death to America,"
“Iran’s defense budget is $30 billion. Our defense budget is closer to $600 billion,” Obama tells Thomas Friedman. “Iran understands that they cannot fight us.” (Daniel Greenfield, Front Page Mag)I have no doubt that the United States is in big trouble. To me this is a major case of deja vu. Is Obama really too young, or just too closed-minded, to remember the scenes of the Americans fleeing Vietnam?
To think that the USA is so foolish that it hasn't learned anything is truly frightening. The entire world is in danger because of this ridiculous "deal!"
