I have got to stop looking – there are videos I did not want to see.
This is a US Air Force jet and consequences.
I am leaving it on mobile so you have to click to see – it shouldn’t play automatically.
And I am going to get coffee and feel glad I can.

Everything the US touches turns to crap, it appears.
America is not a country, it's just a business. (Brad Pitt, Killing Them Softly)
Everything I post is just my opinion, and, honestly, I would love to be wrong.

No one sees the last days of Saigon replay in their mind again? From his speech 50 years ago upon returning from Vietnam-
We are asking Americans to think about that because how do you ask a man to be the last man to die in Vietnam? How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake? But we are trying to do that, and we are doing it with thousands of rationalizations, and if you read carefully the President’s last speech to the people of this country, you can see that he says, and says clearly:
But the issue, gentlemen, the issue is communism, and the question is whether or not we will leave that country to the Communists or whether or not we will try to give it hope to be a free people.
But the point is they are not a free people now under us. They are not a free people, and we cannot fight communism all over the world, and I think we should have learned that lesson by now.
Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

I was 20 when it fell, which means I was just kid during the Viet Nam years. Still hit hard then; hits harder now, given it is proof we either learned nothing from ‘Nam, or the PTB have forgotten. Granted, I am not sure how much of anything Biden is remembering these days.
Can’t even imagine what Viet Nam vets and those who served in Afghanistan, plus the families of those who died there, are feeling right now.
