Compilation of Ronald Reagan's Successful Speeches on Foreign Policy

"I just want you to hear a relatively short compilation Of some of the things Reagan said during his presidency an enormously successful presidency Where he got enormous popular votes won the Electoral College numbers never seen before since probably George Washington And had a fantastically successful foreign policy Take a listen This is from again a group of his speeches just clips from the speeches Some of his best speeches against tyranny Cut 24 go And to every person trapped in tyranny whether in the Ukraine Hungary Czechoslovakia Cuba Vietnam We send our love and support and tell them they are not alone Their message must be your struggle is our struggle your dream is our dream and someday you too will be free Hey miss poop John Paul told his beloved polls We are blessed by divine heritage We are children of God and we can not be slaves History shows that it is precisely when totalitarian regimes begin to decay from within It is precisely when they feel the first real stirrings of domestic unrest That they seek to reassure their own people of their vast and unchallengeable power through imperialistic expansion or foreign adventure So the era ahead of us is one that will see grave challenges and be fought with danger Yet it's one that I firmly believe will end in the triumph of the civilized world and the supremacy of its beliefs in individual liberty of representative government and the rule of law under

David Gergen Shares His Experiences in the Nixon Administration

"David, I want to start because there's some people in the audience. I get new affiliates every month, and we get 400 and right now. I want them to know that you work for RN, you work for Gerald Ford, you work for Ronald Reagan, you work for Clinton. But you have different sort of styles and roles for each of them. Let's start with president Nixon. What'd you do in the Nixon White House? Nixon White House, I came in, I've been in the navy. I went to law school and I went in the navy for three and a half years. My last year, you know, I was assigned to come back to come to Washington to work on draft reform. That was the time when Nixon had launched a random lottery to determine what draft number you got and whether you're going to go to Vietnam or not. And we tried to clean that up, they ran a bogus in some ways, I ran the moderator first year out. I'll tell you, you have time for a little story. We got lots of time. We can go a long time today. Okay, super. Well, so the next one out of The White House orders a random lottery to determine who goes to Vietnam. The Lewis Hershey was then head of the draft. He was sort of the J. Edgar Hoover of the drafts. And so Hershey did something they did back in the Second World War, which was a very popular war. They got a bowl, they got capsules, and they put January 1 in the first capsule, put it in a bowl, and then January 2, all the days of January, then February, all the way up through the days of December the last ones into the boat. Got a spoon started up a little bit. Put it in the closet. And then on the day on the random monitor, they brought it to bowl, reached in for number one, you ought to Vietnam. And it was like November 15th. And then all of the early all of the early numbers and all of the early draws were from late in the year. So the whole thing was tilted.

You Are Witnessing the Dissolution of the Government of Silicon Valley

"When governments fall, we usually look and we remember, when the government of Afghanistan fell last summer in the Taliban took over, we'll never forget that. When Vietnam completely collapsed when we barely were able to get our troops off. We looked and we remembered. In 1917, when the Bolsheviks took over the government of Russia, they took over the SARS and they implemented their own communist Marxist war against the west, people who were alive at the time and historians they never forget that when governments fall, it's worthy of notice. You are witnessing the dissolution of a government. And not a government in the traditional sense, but a separate type of government, not the USSR, not Cuba, but instead the rule of the administration of Silicon Valley. And I'm not to say they don't have any power. I'm not to say that there won't be any poison pills or traps along the way, but Elon Musk, the world's richest man, who is created by the left, by the way. Elon Musk is a creation of the needs wants and desires of the American left and I'll prove it to you. Has just liberated France. Not France, the country, but the metaphor. Elon Musk is on the march. You see, when Elon Musk has pulled off the improbable, some people thought the impossible and certainly I was cynical and skeptical. Has showed that all of a sudden, the government of Silicon Valley, this extra governmental constitutional order. That the left has implemented, it's now all fair game.

How Wokeism Has Softened Today's College Student's Intellect

"When I was in college, getting a journalism degree, by the way. The media had not been quite so poisoned. The culture had not been quite so poisoned. I mean, just earlier that when I'm in my adolescence, it's the 60s and we got hippies and we got Woodstock and we got Vietnam and we got protests and we got the Chicago 7 we got all those things, all those delicious conflicts. Of course, we had all of that. We had all of that. But. Once we got past my adolescence in my college years, and then we get to today's college experience, could lord, the job of college is to try to intellectually toughen you up. So that you can learn how to argue your point, and the only way you can properly argue your point is if somebody in the room would disagrees with you. And how do you know that you're right? How do you know that you're right? The best way to know that you're right is to hear an opposing view and effectively smartly intelligently effectively argue against it.

What Kind of America Did Ronald Reagan Inherit?

"Out, let's take a quick history moment here. Reagan came to presidency in 80 and the lady election came in at 81 in which we had just been through probably some of the tougher 6 years of country has been through and if you want to take it back into the Vietnam wartime in the 60s, probably the next 15 to 20 years. When he came into office, America's standing in the world was low. Our the hostages were released, the Iranian hostages were released on the day on the right after he was inaugurated. President Carter had been dealing with this. It was on the TV every night, day one, day 20, day 40, day, 80, day 90, day, 200. It became just an obsession in our country during this time and Carter's administration we had the oil embargo. We had gas process. We had the malaise speech by Carter, where everybody just felt like, you know, wow, this is this isn't a good place. And you saw crime you saw the other issues. And Reagan came forward with a message that basically was one of reminding us of who we are. Sometimes in life when things are going wrong when things are going by. Sometimes in life, you need to have someone remind you who you are. Who you are in the sense of a country who you are in the sense of a person in a place and Reagan did that. And that was one of the things his perspective was of a long-term view, not just a short term view. So many times in politics now, we have a two or four year vision. And Reagan was reminding, I think, here as he looked out across those windows, was describing those scenes. He was describing our nation as a whole and the journey that we have been through. That is something we don't hear enough of today. We hear more of what is the immediate treatment. What's that actually going to happen today? What happened three years ago? What's going to happen to very seldom? Do we look back more than just an administration or two unless we're trying to find bad examples? Instead, Reagan looked across the span of history and took out the fact that we are freedom and looking at that, he wanted to discuss

John Zmirak on the West's New Strategic Goal in Ukraine

"USA Today according to people from the brookings institution that quoted Robert Kagan. They quoted all these military strategies talking about the new strategic goal. Do you know Eric, what the new strategic goal is in Ukraine? I'm afraid to ask, what is the new strategic goal? Quagmire. The goal is quagmire, our goal in the west, according to these foreign policy elites, should be to bog the Russians down from years like Afghanistan or our time in Vietnam to bleed Russia out, causing enormous casualties on both sides and huge civilian deaths because this will keep Russia weak and it might even lead to the overthrow of Putin. That's what our elites care about. They care about regime change in Moscow. They don't care how many Ukrainians died any more than they cared about the nursing home patients being incinerated like shelter pets in New York State.

How KT McFarland Became the Person She Is Today

"KT McFarland's with me today. I can't been waiting for this one for a while. Got to run into her cpac with the crazy part about it is through all of our travels. We have been on TV together multiple times on interviews, but never in the same place. It seems like at the same time, especially with the last few years going. And so it was so good to be in the same room, not on the same convention center, but there with you in Orlando. It is great to have you on the podcast today. Well, I agree. I mean, I feel like I really know you well because I've been on television with you. We've talked to each other, but we've never actually met in person. And so here we are yet again, not in person, but it's good to be with you. It is. But it works out, great. Well, you know, one of the things is and especially the way life goes these days is we all have our backgrounds and where we come from. And people see us and make judgments, basically, you know, we're on TV or we're on the interviews, one podcast that was kind of like, one of the things I love to do with this podcast has been great to be able to do is sort of people see how we became, you know, you or how you became me and it gives people that background so that when they see you, they say, hey, I know where she came from. I know what was going on. So tell us a little bit about how you became you in a lot of sense. Gosh, that's so nice. Well, I started out as a freshman in college in 1969. I was from Madison, Wisconsin from a working class family, but I got a scholarship to go to George Washington University. But I needed a job. So I was a really fast typist. And through a series of accidents, got a job as the nighttime secretary in The White House situation, freshman in college. And I was working for Henry Kissinger in the Nixon administration. So I went to college during the day, majored in Chinese Chinese studies, wrote my bicycle, went to The White House situation room every afternoon, and then typed the first draft from what was then called the president's daily brief and is still called the president's daily brief. And that was the classified items briefing items that would be on the president of the United States is desk in the Oval Office every morning at 7 a.m.. So I typed the rough draft at night, somebody finished it off in the morning. And I did that all through college, through part of graduate school. And all of a sudden I got promoted after chain. And I was Henry Kissinger's research assistant. At a very young age, and so saw firsthand to some of the most extraordinary periods of American foreign policy. It was the opening to China, the end of the Vietnam War, the Paris peace accords. The detente with the Soviet Union, Middle East peace negotiations. So as a very young person in my late teens, early 20s, was exposed to people and events.

Where Did This Animosity to Safe, Established Drugs Come From?

Where Did This Animosity to Safe, Established Drugs Come From?

"Where did this animosity to save established drugs vice the vaccines come from Paul? Yeah, it's a great question, Sebastian. And I think we ought to divide it into two categories. One category would be brand new Therapeutics and the second category would be, as you mentioned, hydroxychloroquine, which has been around to treat malaria, I think it is. For 5 or 6 decades. And when the FDA evaluates a therapeutic for emergency use, basically the rules are with all of the scientific evidence that's available, did the benefits outweigh the risks. And what we knew about hydroxychloroquine was there's virtually no risks. I mean, people take it for decades quite honestly. And we gave it, we gave hydroxychloroquine to our soldiers in Vietnam. So this is how long we've been doing it as Americans in Africa. At the beginning, we didn't know about it. And none of us lame and knew about COVID. So what did we do? We had to do some research, especially those that had a media platform. And then early on, I looked at the map of world infections, and I saw this fascinating thing. I saw that Africa is basically devoid of coronavirus. And I thought, why is that? And then I find out what hydroxychloroquine the antimalarial drug is sold without prescription over the counter in Africa, which means people have been taking for decades, which probably is the reason that hydroxychloroquine protected Africa from the worst consequences. So keep explaining where this resistance came from. Sebastian, I think it's about control at some level. And I don't understand the hydroxychloroquine argument because as we said, even if it weren't effective, which I don't think anyone has proven that's the case. It certainly wasn't harmful. So what do we have to lose if people are

A Look Back at the Life of Dwight Eisenhower

"Of course, was the 34th president of the United States. He served from 53 to 61. Sort of the capstone of his career, you know, most do knowing his president, but most know him again as he is being the supreme ally commander in Europe at the end of World War II and leading the offensive of all of our allies against the axis forces and Hitler and Nazi Germany. These all playing together for this became his final speech and there's a lot written about Eisenhower and I would encourage you just to the wood of Washington. If you want to know more about the man themselves, you want to know about how they grow up how they came about, I would encourage you to read their several books out there to go read about them because they're fascinating in their where they came from and how they got there. In fact, it's a really interesting correlation between sort of three presidents in a row and this is an extra for you podcast listeners today. For listening, you know, if you look at the middle of the century in the United States during the came out of the FDR presidency coming out of the great depression moving into World War II, you had a person who was in essence grown for politics. He was groomed in many ways and his family from his cousin to everybody to be a politician to be a leader of governor or president. That's what FDR Franklin Roosevelt was sort of groomed to be. And then you have the one who became president one of the biographies of his accidental president. Harry Truman was one who was not groomed. He came from very humble backgrounds. He came from a very working class middle of the country background and Missouri to know to the presidency. And took those took that office very seriously because of where he came from and in the desire to serve the country. And then you transition to another midwesterner in Eisenhower. So in the middle of our time frame there in which we went through The Great Depression World War II into what began the use of the atomic bomb, the use of the beginning of the Cold War. And then the space race toward the end of Eisenhower's term that was beginning, again, this buildup of nuclear power, this buildup of military power through Eisenhower's administration and even the beginnings of what we say we see the battle of Korea. And then we see the start of what would be known is from our perspective later in Eisenhower's administration owning the candidates and then Johnson's is the Vietnam War.

"Out. John, you know, you're giving us the picture of what's going on in Ukraine and in Russia. What do you say to folks who say that we can not, I was talking to Frank gaffney earlier today. And he, I think he's on the same page as we are on many things, but on this issue, he seems to think that we do have some kind of an obligation to prevent Russia from gobbling up Ukraine. Okay, and where is the treaty that we signed? That was ratified by Congress. Allying us with Ukraine. There is nothing. Well, it's like Vietnam. I mean, there was no tree that we were supposed to. It's the idea that. Yeah, it was not a great idea. It wasn't the Vietnam War, just a dandy wonderful idea that was so good for America. That's what radicalized America did in Vietnam War did more for the Communist Party and the leftist movement and legal abortion and divorce and gay activism, but one thing, the worst thing that ever happened to America politically was the Vietnam War. Not only did it achieve nothing in Vietnam, except delay victory of communism, it brought communism onto our college campuses. So yeah, I mean, we have. No, we have no moral obligation to Ukraine except for one thing, okay? The one thing you could say is we overthrew the elected government of Ukraine in 2014 and put in pro American Stooges who were picked by the U.S. ambassador Victorian new world. So insofar as you create as a puppet government, our CIA setup. I guess we have some obligation to puppet governments that we set up. But there is no moral obligation to go to war with Russia. Again, Ukraine is not a part of NATO. That's what it means to be a NATO is that we will go to war with Russia on your behalf. I think we should dissolve NATO that it's an insane idea to have a nuclear trigger all three Eastern Europe. But certainly, let's not pretend that Ukraine is a member of NATO with all the rights and privileges of being a member of

Glenn Jacobs, Mayor of Knox County, Tells Us About Himself

"Tell us a little bit about where you come from, your background, I know you've been married like I have for a long time, you got kids. So to give us a background of just, you know, that off persona Glenn Jacobs. Yeah, thanks for the opportunity to do that because you're exactly right. I was speaking with some young folks this morning and it's one of the things that I said, you know, we both in wrestling and in politics, you kind of have this personal public persona that is in wrestling quite a bit different, but even in politics is different or you get labeled as whatever and that's different than you are as an individual. So I think it's always important to look back and understand people's journey through life. I was born in Madrid Spain. My dad was in the air force at the time. Dad was 21 year military veteran he served ten years in the navy in the Korean War. He was on the USS antietam. Then he services to the air force. He was in Vietnam. It was a load master on the C one 30 cargo planes, the big planes. He retired when I was four years old, we'd already moved back to the states. He was a master sergeant, but it's funny because as in his position, he was the person in charge of the weights and balances on those planes. So he could literally overrule an air force general on whether the plane could take off or not. Which is pretty cool. Mom was a homemaker, our growing up in the 70s and royal northeast Missouri, my family is actually from the St. Louis area, but we moved a couple hours north of there. And there's one whole lot of economic opportunity to add worked in factories. Got laid off quite a few times. And if it hadn't been for his military retirement, things would have been very difficult. We always had food over in our belly and a roof over our head, but if the car broke down or something like that, you know, things get tight. Mom and dad loved us and they worked really hard. I mean, when you think of hardworking Americans, you think of people like George and Jones

"vietnam" Discussed on Veterans Chronicles

"No refused to sign it. And that's the only time they really threatened me. They said, well, you're never going to see your family again. So get out. And the next day they didn't do anything. So long story short when we got back, somebody knocked on my door about ten o'clock one night and was a young man about like your age. He showed me his ID, he was Greek, American, with a counterintelligence, and he said, I wanted to come before, but I couldn't, but I wanted to come and tell you how proud I am that you wouldn't sign a document. Because our people really didn't know with us signed it or not, he was just my word. I said, how do you know I didn't sign it? He said, the guy that was trying to make you sign it was one of our agents. Interesting. And he's been found out and they killed him, but we did get his family into Switzerland before they got them. That's an incredible story, sir. They've also mentioned that you served in Vietnam, two tours, in fact, what stands out to you most from your service there. Well, the first tour was with army concept team. There was very select group. Again, it was a signal to me that the army was pushing my career rather than I was pushing it. I did never push my career. We were to study different phases of what's going on over there to do something better. That's the American way, really. So I was into the concept team and I did a study on the use of artillery. In counter surgery. Operations in the main thing that came out of this study was they were not using. There are two properly the Vietnamese were not nor were they used in a VT fuse which was you had to use that and what terrain. So I got a lot of praise for that. And then I came back assigned to the 11th aerosol division. And I took over the battalion when it was it had all top notch people, because the division had cream of the crop, but they had fixated on helicopters and had forgotten how to use artillery. So I used the bubble first three, four months. The retrain them. And train them all sorts of far 360. For Vietnam, since I did that study, and then they got alerted they would become the first cavalry division and go to Vietnam. That's the first major unit that went to Vietnam. And my division artillery commander called me said meet me at the general's office. He wants to talk with you. I went there in the commanding general said you've already been to Vietnam, and the policy none is you don't go back. Well, every lieutenant colonel in the army was dying to give his ticket punched in Vietnam. So I would be cheating someone if I went back, so he said, you have to give up your battalion. I only had it about 5 months, and I said, sir, my dream in the army is never make general used to be a bat and commander. He said, don't worry..

Just this is having an all this blanket. Blanket numbers events that were happening okay. So eighty more women and children were brought to an irrigation ditch and then they were shocked so exactly like the nazis did were. They would bring them to a ditch. Shoot them in the. Yeah try to cover up. They were just following orders. Weird that should be the subtitle for this shed nazis in vietnam just following. That's really good. That sounds like a movie so it sounds like a really really fucked up documentum about what. We should do documentaries. No we're too lazy. We don't even our own shows. The i yes i do. I made a robot do for me. I'm so lazy. That i learned how to make a macro to edit it for me works so though the women while being shot at were yelling. No viet cong. No viet cong. Because they couldn't speak english but they knew no viet novia they were shielding their kids One dude who's experience. This was specifically. The i took from remembered that he was shooting into the groups. Right next to his lieutenant who was encouraging and shooting himself and he was thinking and he thought all these kids all these old men and women they they're all strapped with grenades strapped with traps. I can't let them get me near me. We'd have to shoot him like he was so indoctrinated gene the lies that his commanding officers were giving him to basically turn the whole point of war..

"You know what this is. If you're not you might have heard of it. It's a pretty big event. Basically the tet offensive was eighty thousand. Viet cong attacked a hundred different towns and cities at the same time. Oh so the. The whole idea was oh. We're going to show how powerful we are in this offensive. That more people are going to rise up and join the viet cong More people are going to defect. More people are going to have the power to fight against the oppressing americans and other allies and would it also be safe to say that the approach is that if we hit one hundred towns. There's no way that they can stop us. If we're covering the shotgun broaches just boom. We're not going to get as much right away. They're going to be a lot of casualties but they're not gonna stop us. Yeah it's going to be a lot more difficult to fight against that. So i mean initially a worked. The the whole idea was all the locals are going to join. And then the government's gonna fall and then the allies will have no reason to be there anymore because The southern vietnam government's gone so initially really successful because it was such a surprise attack but because the the allies especially the us relied on. They used helicopters so much. They were able to travel so quickly that they pretty fairly quickly scooped up the land back. There was one battle that lasted over a month and the the viet cong because they had occupied this town for over a month. They were executing a couple. Couple thousand folks now vietnam and probably korea both kinda start off like a really really heavily focused guerrilla warfare right or would you say that started even further back. I would say that is started further back but this is utilize ation of it. It's at its core. When you have a jungle like vietnam yeah you can be a lot more guerrilla than anywhere else because guerilla warfare as we know it in a i could be completely wrong..

It was attacked by north vietnamese torpedo boats. While international waters in the gulf of tonkin and the gulf of tonkin incident gave the johnson administration the pretext to be more to be directly engaged in the vietnam war. So you know. We went from advisors to now boots on the ground and it was the minnie pearl harbor that they needed to justify. That is yeah it was it really was the minnie pearl harbor and this this this happened. You know this is this did happen. At least one of the attacks happened. Well yeah keep out there say my piece and so But in this story there's a lot of weirdness and confusion and dishonesty and emission of facs and then Twisting of backs surrounding this this incident so this attack that takes place place that now becomes the pretexts to bring in more troops into into vietnam. It'd be more directly engaged and Tell in early. Nineteen sixty four. So south vietnam began conducting a covert series of commando raids along the north vietnamese coast and these commando attacks were were supervised by the department offense in the cia but were carried out by the southfield muse navy and when these unit started taking heavy casualties they shifted the operations from commando raids to shore bombardments. Meanwhile the us navy had been conducting reconnaissance in sickened gathering missions which are basically like signal telling us.

"These were just. This is a line that was drawn for the french to evacuate their forces so the they split the country in half. The french has retreat immediately from from northern vietnam and then they had two years to leave southern vietnam south vietnam until they had a national election and that national election was most likely going to be won by. She meant does he had all the popular support. So what the us did with the cia. Basically dead is. They created south vietnam. They injected money into it. They injected resources into it to become this bulworth against communism in southeast asia so it was a completely manufactured country. It wasn't like you know something that succeeded. Orders fake fake government fake grassroots movement fake everything financing came from every fake. There's some countries that are just their natural countries that are kind of formed. there's other countries that are drawn by colonial powers over resources and then there's other countries that are literally just frankenstein's like they're just they're they're just like a complete like government contracts like that's that and that's what south vietnam was was a complete manufactured little sandbox that the cia created is a way to undermine hokey men to undermine the the communist there and rent one of the ways that they got people to move there. Is it they you know. They had a doubt they had to covertly figure out ways to get matt. These migrations from the north to the south was. They told people that they were going to be massacred if they stayed so the cia. They unleashed com. Really hot threat. Was that the threat of violence. Yeah well see the cia. They had a propaganda campaign. Mainly targeting catholics. They said that they're going to be genocide. And i have. Here's what gareth porter said. Gareth porter comes from this era of nosed investigative journalism. He's using his late seventies. So we use a vietnam era Guy thing that's why he's still so good. Today is that Psychological warfare team led by lansdale had slipped into hanoi in hoy fong to sabotage the hoshi men government takeover and spread propaganda to provoke fear among catholics and other residents. The key tactic of the lansdale team was to apprentice series of black propaganda leaflets designed to appear as though they came from the veit men too frightened residents of the north into leaving south vietnam. The most dramatic such deception involve spreading the rumor that the us military was going to bomb. Annoy a story that was further promoted by showing constant concentrate circle of destruction of the city buying atomic bomb. So jesus the cia went into the to north vietnam. And i always feel like fucking nut. Whenever i keep on saying the cia over and over and over again in a podcast. Because you know there's some people who are like to see. I earn troll. You know how it is in this case shorter might troll. We're not wrong this. Er is martin's legitimately. it was. It was a though. See i got me. So i always feel kinda weird saying it over and over again but i mean they are saying they do awful things so i think it's fair. The point out campaigns that they ran that well these are the facts lawns it affects by the commission that was that was drawn up by the us government themselves. A conspiracy theory like they fucking wrote it down on paper it literally. We did this. It's literally so's similar to afghanistan. It is eerie right. How similar the like south vietnam is to. The afghan. Government is the same thing. It's really sad. Tragic.

"Vietnam is that so during this time during this war there was no north and south vietnam. Now the only thing that was their nose french indo china it was the area. It was the french colony that covered modern day. Vietnam laos cambodia North the north and south border are just a result of postwar negotiations. And i have this this document. This that explain i have. I have documents documents right here. I have a document from the state department from nineteen sixty two. That explains it really. Well these were so just to give you an idea. So the vietnam. Demarcation line is non international boundary in the traditional sense rather it is a provisional military demarcation line as such it should never be shown on official maps by this standard simple for an international boundary. The lines represent the partition affected by the nineteen fifty four geneva conference which brought an end to the hostilities. Between the french union. Vietnamese forces knows the viet vietnam and the demarcation line is approximately forty seven point two five miles long French indochina consisted of tonkin a enaam in coaching china which together made up vietnam and cambodia and laos at the end of the war. It was anticipated that these entities would form a federal part of newly constituted. French union france however earnest never completely able to reassort its third authority over a period of a few years few years granted independence to three states moreover the area in tonkin over which the french had regained control after the war was slowly lost to the communist viet met after the surrender of deigned bond fu in the international conference engineer to resolve the difference in end the war. One of the one of the results of the conference was temporary partition of vietnam approximately along the seventeenth parallel of north latitude. According to the geneva conference of nineteen fifty four in the central mixed commission for vietnam the provisional military demarcation line in this association demilitarized zone was described as follows. And i'm i'm not going to go to the rest of that but the point is.

They sided with engines over thera- giving. Yeah that's true. In what the. Pull this the pullback little earlier eisenhower actually against the initial french invasion changed their mind because the world the entire world was against that it looked really bad it was just like total colonialism like it looked just like really big move dude in the context of after world war two when now that we kind of decided that all that stuff wasn't good anymore like invading countries and stuff like that it was seen as as like what the hell are you guys doing critical it was.

Oh if he announced great and i always like oh mom like all my roommates in college reuven amies is nuts and i wanna let let's dive back into the vietnam war. 'cause i wanna talk about just the general of the war and dumb carnival way that we look at it danny sherston. He wrote his really interesting article. And i think this might be his first article that i've read of his So this was years ago. I think probably like two thousand eighteen. It made me a fan of his. And it's about the articles about military scholars and generals who are constantly reliving vietnam. No they they're replaying it over and over again in studies in theory and You know they're looking for insight on how they could have won that war it was Particularly obsession for a lot of generals who were coming out of west point in the nineteen eighties. So the guys who are too young to serve in vietnam but the guys who are old enough to basically be the leaders of Now of gulf war in where the high ups right now in our military. Hr mcmasters famous for this thesis. He wrote about you. Know what we did wrong. And in vietnam and you know what we could have done better But there's a lot of papers like that. There's this constant replaying up like what. How could we have one. But the problem is they focus on the actions that should have been taken after the. Us submitted ground troops in one thousand nine hundred eighty five. So they're on. You know what we should have gone after. Nineteen sixty five when we fully engaged in there. They don't take account that the war was already over by the time we entered it like the war was done. The there was no winning. That war was unwinnable at it was unwinnable because ho chee men was the most popular man in vietnam and You know they they just were not gonna prevent him from taking power. He had just too much popularity. He was seen as a freedom fighter who fought not only the japanese. But also the french and what people don't get is that communism.

It was report of the office of the secretary of defense vietnam task force which was even more lame than now. Pentagon papers is cooler. I mean the pentagon papers is A reason there's a reason why they called the afghanistan papers the afghanistan papers because right now because it's that explosive except the afghantistan papers really didn't shake shit up like this one. Did i feel like the reason why the afghanistan papers didn't have the same impact is because yeah like it was nice to see it but it was stuff out. Everyone already knew. Yeah you know. It was like a lot of the things that were exposed some quotes from different high ups. But everyone already knew that that that the afghanistan more with disaster an part of that is probably because we have the internet now right and so a lot of that information is being disseminated a lot quicker whereas the common american was just basically taking for face value. Whatever the us government was telling them on the on the basic media rank. And unless someone like you know ellsberg decided to leak some documents to the contrary whatever the government said was what was printed and what was said on the news and that's it so this. This was particularly kind of a bombshell revelation. Because a lot of people at the time were already feeling This kind of antiwar fervor or at least that had been that sentiment had been growing in the country and then suddenly somebody comes along and dropped seven thousand pages on you know affirming their beliefs and then suddenly like oh shit.

Totally, <hes> excited to see that come in <hes> and I I know we're going to get into a lot of the the Riviera of but <hes>. It was exciting to see it. <hes> get trailer it on into us. Well, that's cool, and that of course happened in the midst of all the complications around around covert and those other restrictions, so we'll talk about that in a bit, too, but interesting to me that <hes> just with the passage of time with our museum <hes>. This is something that we have an eagle hangar has traditionally been the venue, or we talk about military history, and we have our warbirds and other artifacts and things. That's been largely focused on World War Two since the advent of the museum, but we've seen F eighty six, an megan there periodically touching into Korea. Thomas More Scout, <hes> that sort of his edge, and there's going to cover World War One <hes>, but this is really our first four into Vietnam, isn't it? Is it is? This is the first <hes> aircraft that we have from the Vietnam era <hes>. Interestingly enough if you go back several years <hes> sort of on the gate guard side of things. We actually had a couple sky, raiders, <hes>, and those are actually on different military bases. Now they were on loan to us <hes>, but this is the first true aircraft donation to artifact <hes> that <hes> that we have in in the museum. Proper here and <hes>. It's really exciting to see that come in because. You know when you if you look back. When Eagle. Hangar was built it was you know it was opened in the nineties, <hes>. You know. It's about the fiftieth anniversary of world. War Two turn. Now you know were <hes>. We're focusing never GONNA lose that focus of the World War Two generation that always going to be something special <hes>, but we are broadening the horizons a bit to make sure we're. Live of experience excellent. Yeah, absolutely excellent, so then I suppose the first obvious question here is. Where did the idea for the Huey Exhibit? Come from was something that you know we've been looking at for a while. And the right opportunity came up or was this sort of a newer like we really need to. Branch out a little bit and feature this part of history as well <hes>. It's something that that personally I've been pushing for a couple years. I joined the museum team that <hes>. I think we need to get get a healy <hes>, and and there are several reasons why that aircraft <hes>. Early <hes> well. We have a <hes>. Our Museum director is Huey pilot, so it wasn't hard to. To Sell Ron on the idea of. Like, we should have a you hit owed. He's like well. That sounds good to me. Who flew those? Which is true? Yes, exactly exactly, you're listening. So, it was very <hes>. Once I came back with. Hey, there's more to it than just getting Hughie <hes>. You know there's a lot of programming that comes with that we could do. There's a lot of artifact display that we could do love storytelling. And I think once once we all sat down and we really took a hard look at it rather than just a the perspective of boy.

"One of the reasons I wanted to talk a little bit about Memorial Day, which is coming up Mondays because one of the off money. But I think it's something that is one of those days that I don't wanna see everybody but a lot of us take for granted. It's traditionally seen courses the kickoff to the summer season in this country. And it's been treated that way by a lot of folks the getting the grill, ready, having the folks, and friends and neighbors over and having, you know, big barbecue, which is all well, and good. But ultimately, this day is about remembering the people who died while serving their country in the United States armed forces in there's Veterans Day, which celebrates the service of all US military veterans. And that's not what this is this is the men and women who have died while serving their country. And I as I said before I attended event, every year creek on Memorial Day in the morning at the four still cemetery, which is a great events. And. There's speeches. We have elected officials who speak and some members of the military as well. But ultimately, we respect and appreciate those individuals who paid the ultimate sacrifice and gene, and I were talking about g Miller and I were talking about this, this morning, you know, circumstances when you were born in a lot of ways dictates what your story line is. And in some cases, dictates, whether or not, you are someone who served in the military. I didn't. And it's always been one of my biggest regrets. And I've interviewed a lot of different members of a lot of different branches and served in different wars. I've talked to Korean war veterans, Vietnam. Veterans certainly and a lot of folks who are just inactive military, serving around the world, including some members who have served in Afghanistan. I think it's important Afghanistan. I think it's important. To understand the significance of this day, when you look at World War Two or the Korean war, or Vietnam in this case in greenfield currently have the traveling wall where you can actually see a symbolic representation of what the real wall in Washington DC, looks like on the mall and courage, if you're out in about this, we can go check that out. Those are real people. Real real names of individuals who did pay that ultimate price. And that is significant and something we should all appreciate Richard for his calling from Oshkosh. Good morning. Richard. Good morning. Yes. When I get to Memorial Day, I think about my family was invested highly in World War, Two my wife was killed in the battle the ball ch- period, and then other ones. My dad was in the service thirty eight months. You don't think about that. My uncle was overseas. Forty four months never saw his second born until he got out of the service Jack was blown out of the water in the Atlantic. I'm a Vietnam veteran and I served twelve months in Vietnam and the note to you, there is a, a minute of silence at three pm local time on Monday for unity and remembrance of all those who passed away. Well, thanks for sharing that Richard and thanks for your services, while Richard calling from Oshkosh. And that's just one person that's one story. But look at all the lives. He's talked about their people that have. Impacted his life, his his memories and his ability to live free in this country. So much of what we do today. All the freedoms. We enjoy. We don't think the people who actually did the heavy lifting in the work to allow that to be possible. And it's more than just thinking about you. And that's something you should do every day. You don't need a Veterans Day or Memorial Day to celebrate these lives that were lost. He should do that everyday. But when you think about Memorial Day, I my I guess my sole purpose for talking about this is to understand that these people left the safety of their homes left their families, in many cases, left wives and children to go fight for us. Whether it's World War Two or Vietnam or whatever conflict Afghanistan. How many people could make that commitment? It's become more challenging to get people to sign up for military service. We our country that doesn't have a draft. It's still a volunteer, volunteer army. And I think when you think about that. Appreciate the men and women who have paid that ultimate sacrifice. So if you have a community that has one of these events taken our to on Monday morning. That's what it is. Sounds like the forecast, it'll be okay. And just listen to what the speakers are telling you. Take a moment to glance at a grave of a veteran. And say thank you, in that way. All the stuff that happens later, the barbecues a family get togethers. All great all good. But on that day Memorial Day, it's about celebrating the lives of the people that, that were willing to do with some of us aren't willing to do our weren't willing to do its significance important. And I think what's it's what makes this country so great. There's not enough of that. And I notice I was reading through Twitter and congressman Gallagher from Wisconsin served in the military has been sharing stories of young men killed in Afghanistan. Take a moment. If you're on social media, go look at those some as recently as last year. Young men in their twenties. Up their lives. Our families friends went to the other side of the world. Trying to defeat terrorism and pay the ultimate sacrifice in doing that. So think about that Memorial Day. Today worth remembering those men and women is country who.

"This is an ABC podcast. Hello there and welcome to between the lines. This is Tom Switzer. It's always great to have you company. Now, when you think of it at Phnom, what comes to your mind for many, people of a certain vintage Vietnam represents the conflict between the US laid forces, including Australia, and the North Vietnamese communists, primarily in the sixties and early seventies doesn't it? For me. Vietnam is personal you see my father served as a US marine in India China in a light sixties early seventies. During our Anna, he like, many US men spent time in Australia. One not is light one not one of those dodgy BAAs in kings cross Sydney. He made a local nece they spent several knots together during his break from fighting. Yatta yatta. They seemed got married and always born shortly afterwards. So as you must suspect I can never criticize our involvement in Vietnam. Otherwise, I would never have been born. We'll seriously the subject Vietnam has been subjected to lots of scholarship and scrutiny during the past how century and some journalists believe in new book, Vietnam, an epic tragedy. It's nine forty five to seventy five is the best account of the wall. Now, the author of that book is Max Hastings. He's one of the world's great journalists and military historians who happened to be in Saigon as a young baby. ABC reporter aged twenty four in nineteen seventy-one Dominic. Same Brooke rotting in the Sunday Times, he reflects the consensus among the review as he says, quote, even by Hastings earned standards. This is a masterful performance. Deftly balanced immaculately research and risen with immense. Flay will. Housing's? That's a heck of a wrap. Welcome back to between the lines. Thanks. It's always a pleasure to be here. A love story. Well, let's start with quite Walt Bouma who went to went onto become a four star. General. He was willing to do anything to get to Vietnam says he's quote, I fully board into this thing that the communists were going to take over the world. And this was the place to stop them. Even then har- school kids were saying, this does not make any sense to us. But I thought our pretty stupid max. Well, I love what Bouma because I spent a couple of days talking to him for this book, and he's a huge intelligence thoughtful guy who's absolutely Frank about the naievety with which she went into bit nam as a professional career marine. And what he learnt while he was Darren until three tours, and he's really thoughtful and reflective about it, which not everybody is some people are still very bitter about the war. Some people bang on about high. It could have been one. And he's one of those who I respect enormously who thought a lot about this that when you're young marine or young soldier that. It sounds terrible to say it now, but you don't think too much about you assume that you'll country country right or wrong in the nineteen sixties. Anything seemed possible for the United States. I lived in America in the nineteen sixties for two years. An America was so rich unsocial successful. And it was still generation in charge that one well will too and they felt nothing was beyond them..
