So said Mao to Nixon about US dead in the Vietnam War.
That’s the war Cheney and Bush failed to show up for.
Mao told Nixon that the US could never win a “for profit” war because the American people would turn against when about 50.000 US kids were killed.
That was before the computer and the Internet.
5,000 US dead is now the limit.
If we go on as we are we will have 5,000 dead by the time of the next election in the states.
The Republicans will lose the election for the White House, dramatically.
They will be unable to regain their footing in the Congress and the Senate for the next 30 years.
One can understand this when you look at the calibre of Cheney and Bush.
Cowards in the Vietnam War and dropouts from college.
Bush, the moron, thinks that a chap called “General” runs Pakistan.
He invaded Iraq on a lie.
He hasn’t the faintest idea of the Arab concept of honour, revenge and Inshallah.
The Iraqis are full of honour, dedicated to revenge and their God is usually willing.
We slaughtered 600,000 of them on a lie.
If we stay they will slaughter 5, 10, or 15 thousand of us.
The only way to stop it is to get out now.
The Iraqi tribes will deal with the Bin Laden base we created in Iraq.
We will deal with Cheney and Bush.
