The trick party with Vietnam was that we were fighting a guerrilla war AND a real war against a state actor. The problem is we sat on the defensive, gave the North Vietnamese the imitative.

We should have invade North Vietnam up to the Mu Gia Pass (the key to the whole Ho Chi Minh trail). We should have focused on fighting the North Vietnamese and left the ARVN to fight the Viet Cong, with us providing special operations, air and artillery support, but not our infantry.

True, but then you got the USSR and pre-1968 China that would've flowed arms and maybe even sent some troops to help defend North Vietnam. Maybe the ideological divide between the USSR and China plus their border war in 1969 as well as the 1972 reproachment would've helped, but invading north Vietnam would have been very risky. Just like how we tried to invade Cuba in 1961.

No, social progress is what destroys nations from the inside as we lose everything our society was founded upon, we must return to the values of the past and reinforce god's law on the land.

So we should have the same mentality as when electricity was not discovered? Even though that we are now extremely reliant on electricity now a days?

Society is just different from when America was founded. Too different.

Ah so dropping JDAMs on Yemeni schoolchildren is perfectly acceptable. Also acceptable is the fact that women have little to no control over their lives from birth because of their male guardianship system. Gotcha.

And Iranian-backed terrorism will never strike the United States. Actually all I've seen is American terrorism against Iran. Did you know America shot down an Iranian passenger jet and killed 290 people? Yeah.

You mean after Khomeinist thugs attacked and occupied actual territory of the United States in the US Embassy, triggered the most destructive war in Middle Eastern History, and made a mess of freedom of trade in a major oil shipping route, right?

I'm not sure that our new friend "Surkiea" is necessarily being honest about his or her true opinions. Regardless, the United States obviously rejected the Bible from the moment it came into being, as the Bible clearly commands us to fear God and honour our king (1 Peter 2:17).

The problem with the thing in Cuba is it was a half assed CIA scheme using a few poorly trained Cuban exiles with no air or naval support.

The same issue with Vietnam was we wanted to fight will pretending to not really fight.

That is why I said invade North Vietnam only to the Mu Gia pass, not all the way to Hanoi.
With mountains on the left, the sea on the right and Vietnam only is only some 50km wide at that point. It would be easy to establish a defensive line, and not provoke the PRC.

Also the North Vietnamese would never let the PRC in, remember they fought a war with the ORC shortly after.
Sure there would be some risk, but you never win if you take no risks.

If our laws were based on the bible, capital punishment would be used for minor offenses, there wouldn't be freedom of religion, and there wouldn't be freedom of speech.

Jefferson for example was very supportive of religious freedom, and separation of church and state.

Right. That seems more realistic. Also the PRC cut aid from Vietnam in 1968 after they refused to renounce the USSR.

Also PRC invaded because Vietnam invaded Cambodia to take out the aggressive Pol Pot regime.

^the later baffles me that the UN would choose to side with Pol Pot given his numerous crimes violate both the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Geneva Conventions. Vietnam should've been praised.

I believe the phrase “I may not hold with equality in all things but I do hold with equality before the law.” Is in order.


And that is an excellent phrase.

Novus America represents my vision of an awesome Atompunk near future United States of America expanded to the entire North American continent, Guyana and the Philippines. The population would be around 700 million.
Think something like prewar Fallout, minus the bad stuff.

Politically I am an independent. Pragmatism is my ideology.
