    He's nuts so it's impossible to say if he'll do it or not.

    That said - he's nuts and he is getting old and having health problems. So he doesn't care if he dies in a blaze of glory and takes the entire country with him.
    If leftists didn't have double standards, they'd have no standards at all.

    Didn't we abandon the South Vietnamese under Ford? Carter didn't become prez until 76. I'm sure Carter would have been happy to do it, but I think it was Ford.

    April 30, 1975 - At 8:35 a.m., the last Americans, ten Marines from the embassy, depart Saigon, concluding the United States presence in Vietnam. North Vietnamese troops pour into Saigon and encounter little resistance. By 11 a.m., the red and blue Viet Cong flag flies from the presidential palace. President Minh broadcasts a message of unconditional surrender. The war is over.

    My bad. You're right. Ford tried to help - but the congress blocked him. I knew some bastard leftist(s) were responsible.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
