The Vietnam War is an
example of a time in history when some people did not want to face the truth.
The government could not face the fact that the military cannot solve all
problems. The government kept getting us deeper and deeper into a war we could
not win, there are wars you simply cannot win. Now we understand; today we
could blow North Korea off the face of the Earth; but then what? That's not
practical or even desirable. Back then the government could not face the truth.
