It is remarkable - and sad - how much Afghanistan today is like Vietnam then.
And it will end the same way. The US will declare a face-saving "victory", and pull out. The insurgents will then overrun the demoralized government forces. Then we'll see helicopters taking off from the embassy rooftop again.
It's almost unbearably sad.
Regular NVA divisions backed by tanks, artillery and MiG's overran Saigon, not Vietcong insurgents, who were wiped out during the Tet Offensive back in 1968.
Your proffer, is not close, to the same circumstance. The ‘68 TET is so far away in reasoning- that perhaps you have only read some bs ridden crap, and are misled. Take another swing, at the ball. At least get a grounder, for one on base.
