Are we looking at another Vietnam?

The United States had infinitely greater
military power than the Vietnamese had.

Malcolm X taught us, back in 1965:

" 1964, the oppressed people of South
Vietnam, and in that entire Souteas Asia
area, were successful in fighting off the
agents of imperialism. All the kings horses
and all the kings men haven't enabled them
to put North and South Vietnam together
again. Little rice farmers, peasants, with a
rifle -- up against all the highly-mechanized
weapons of warfare -- jets, napalm, battle-
ships, everything else, and they can't put
those rice farmers back where they want
them. Somebody's waking up."
