Deja Vu all over again

From George Mason University History News Network

Historians have directly attributed the fall of Saigon in 1975 to the cessation of American aid. Without the necessary funds, South Vietnam found it logistically and financially impossible to defeat the North Vietnamese army. Moreover, the withdrawal of aid encouraged North Vietnam to begin an effective military offensive against South Vietnam. Given the monetary and military investment in Vietnam, former Assistant Secretary of State Richard Armitage compared the American withdrawal to β€œa pregnant lady, abandoned by her lover to face her fate.”
2 Historian Lewis Fanning went so far as to say that β€œit was not the Hanoi communists who won the war, but rather the American Congress that lost it.”

Pay attention folks. When the next 9/11 happens, remember the party in charge that brought it to you. Those who don't remember history and repeat it, are doomed

To all my female friends who have been there

Jesse Dorris, an inmate in the Lincoln County (Neb.) Jail, demanded to be removed from his cell because, he said, his cell mate, Brian Bruggeman, 38, had "bad gas." Jailers moved him to another cell but, at the next meal, Bruggeman cut in line to be by Dorris so he could fart on him. Dorris hit Bruggeman, who was serving 90 days for violating a protective order. (And don't you wonder why iy was issued?) County deputies were called in to investigate, and "smelled a liar but quickly sniffed out who was guilty," a spokesman said. "It was an air tight case." Bruggeman has been charged with assault on a confined person -- a felony punishable by up to 5 years in state prison. Dorris was not charged. (North Platte Bulletin)

I know ladies, I know. They should have sent his ass to the gas chamber

Life Imitates Commercials or Ve Vas Jus following orders

BERLIN (Reuters) - A 46-year-old German motorist driving along a busy road suddenly veered to the left and ended up stuck on a railway track -- because his satellite navigation system told him to, police said Sunday.
The motorist was heading into the north German city of Bremen "when the friendly voice from his satnav told him to turn left," a spokesman said.
"He did what he was ordered to do and turned his Audi left up over the curb and onto the track of a local streetcar line"

Several German motorists have crashed their cars in recent months, later telling police they were only obeying orders from their satnavs.

Damned obedient, those Germans. Need car insurance? Call 1-800-DUMKOPF. Uberators are standing by. Not available in France.
