    ...of coping strategy.  So that must be why you say this:

      You come across like one of the people that thinks that the Gazans have no reason whatsoever to fight the Israelis which then leads to the obvious conclusion that the Gazans are simply evil.

    You're describing yourself here.  Set this all aside, whenever you're finished trying to squirm your way out of the hole you keep digging deeper.  Then, after a month or two, go back and reread it.  My guess is, with your obvious intelligence, you'll be able to see that you were looking in the mirror when you wrote those lines.  They're sure as shit not about me.

    The presence or absence of the Russians in Southeast Asia has nothing to do with my argument, except inasmuch as it supports the fact of the imperial nature of the venture, by both France and the U.S., long before the Cold War was official, and continuing afterwards, primarily guided and financed, and ultimately fought, by the USA.

    We were the "threat to S.E. Asia's stability."  The murder of millions at our hands and with our weapons at the hands of others, the rise of Pol Pot, a generation of murder and mayhem in the behest of empire, those are not the responsibility of any Stalinist or Russian anywhere.  These evil and self-serving results, about which you continue to advance self-righteous notions of justification, were the responsibility of U.S., and to an extent French and other European, policy makers and leaders.

    I bow to those who seek the truth; I flee from those who have 'found' it.

      that looks at 184,000 dead South Vietnamese soldiers and sees that as proof of US imperialism!

      Stop.  You again look with hindsight and decide that this was a foregone conclusion going into things as though it was the plan.  Sure our involvement in Vietnam didn't turn out well but that is the nature of wars.  Some go well some don't.  I guess not everyone is omnipotent and knows the results going in.
