How Does the Fall of Kabul Compare to the Fall of Saigon?
"Seen numerous exigencies disasters. Emergencies affecting america's national security establishment. Let's start with a simple can palace and katie mcfarland. Follow this lady right now on twitter at real. Kt the lettuce. Kt mcfarland Is it Unwise is it too simplistic to compare the fall of kabul under biden to the fall of saigon. Give us your take on. That comparison was actually in the white house situation room. The night of the fall saigon. I was That was in april. Nineteen seventy five and america had fought and at least fought to a standstill the vietnam war and similarly to today. We were surrounded by North vietnamese viet cong communist forces and were forced to evacuate Our our forces along with any north and south east amis allies. Who had helped us for the vietnam war and it was a humiliating time for america not only had lost a war but we were forced to evacuate and it was a low point of american foreign policy and i remember being in the situation room where i was receiving case. They were called cables at the time. You'd probably call an e mails text messages today. From the van ambassador to the american ambassador to vietnam where he was saying we. We just need fewer hours. We have just another planeload or to evacuate and all the american. All the american military we later found out that what they were doing was trying to evacuate as many as possible of the vietnamese allies that it helped us So it was a low point in american foreign policy and because it showed to the world the face. Agape world was america's incompetent america Can't fight wars and win them. It's the end of time. America's days are done and it fed into the notion that at that time the soviet union was gonna replace america's the world's dominant power and so surely united states turn that around with especially with the election in nineteen eighty of ronald reagan where he rebuilt the american military. He stood up for the united states again. He reinstated american values. He fixed the american economy and within a decade. After that we had one war so we completely reversed that vietnam syndrome and it only took us. Well it took us maybe ten or fifteen years to do

Senate Panel Votes That Women Should Register for the Draft
"Alright, Here we go. Senate defense budget. Their bill would require women to register for the draft. Have you heard this one? Mr List? My Catholic Italian. Mr. Producer says. Oh, yeah, I don't blame him. Oh, he is right. This is from New York Post They Senate panels. Newly approved defense budget includes a provision requiring women to register for the draft. There were a number of Republican senators on this committee. Who either did not vote. They weren't present or voted for this, and we're trying to figure out which ones Now those of you forget about PC and all the rest of the crap those of you with a daughter. Those of you with a little girl. Do you want that little girl to register for the draft? Of course you don't. Changes to the draft, officially known as the Selective Service system, were made official in the National Defense Authorization Act. The annual military budget bill, which the Senate Armed Services Committee announced it had approved on Thursday. The N D. A amends the military Select Service Act to require the registration of women for selective service. The U. S military has not instituted a draft since the Vietnam War, and Pentagon officials have repeatedly said they intend to keep US armed forces. All voluntary star men between the ages of 18 and 25 are legally required. Be registered with the Selective service system. Penalties for not doing so include losing access to federal financial programs for higher education. Actually, that would be a good thing, I think But the language strikes explicit references to men changing the requirement to all Americans. The change was originally proposed by Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Jack Reed of Rhode Island

How Have US-China Relations Changed Since 1971?
"With president biden now at the helm and the chinese economy predicted to overtake the us. In just a few years. How have relations between the two nations changed since kissinger's visit in nineteen seventy one. And what is the future of these two superpowers who better to ask than vincent. Knee the guardians china affairs correspondent who presented a documentary on bbc world. Service called when kissinger went to china. I started off by asking him. How nineteen seventy-one meeting came about what to some extent. It was a multi year project. Starting with both sides signaled intention of contact. This was initially conducted a very quietly and in a very subtle way beginning with the us. Calling china it's proper name at people's republic of china instead of red china or communist china and in beijing mao also wants to get in touch with richard nixon and his administration so they stay on the media's began to reduce the use of blessed capitalists. The things like this a eventually president. Nixon told pakistani president. Y'all calm and yao coundon tote chairman mao. That's the americans was serious. So that was the beginning of this contact. At in retrospect it was a very practical way of changing the course of the cold war. If you think about in the ninety sixties seventies when richard nixon came to power in ninety sixty eight vietnam. War was still a huge controversy in the us. Adding china around ninety sixty nine. There was a border war between china and the soviet union and around around autumn nineteen. Sixty nine It was rumored that's soviet union wants to to plan a pre emptive strike on china's so chairman mao at the time was really looking for a way out of this. And of course you know for nixon. I going to another communist big power. They wanted to change the triangular relationship between the us soviet union and china
Ann Northrop: The Crucial Role of Women in ACT Up
"I want to begin with your work and act up in the eighties. When did you first become aware of act up and housing after digit joining almost immediately as the last answer. But i had been a producer for cbs news. I'd quit because i was disgusted by what was happening there. I thought it was empty and offensive. And i ended up taking a job at the hedrick martin institute for lesbian and gay youth becoming an aids educator to teenagers in the schools all over new york city as i got educated about what i had to educate people about. It became clear to me that the epidemic was a political event that it was very much like the vietnam war that i had marched against that it was about people in power not caring about anyone else and being perfectly happy to send people off to die so i could see. The thread was clear. And then i went to something called the war conference in the beginning of nineteen eighty eight and that was a meeting of about two hundred. Lgbt activists from around the country and i begged to be invited to the war conference. And i got there and people started talking about act up. And i thought oh my god. This sounds like something. I really should check out. As soon as i got back. There was a monday night meeting. I went to the monday night meeting. And i walked in and i thought oh my god. These are my people. These are the cranky individualists. Who are really too weird to be part of normal society. And they're here doing civil disobedience and direct action. I can go out in the streets and yell and say what i want and do what i did during the vietnam war in the feminist movement and it all just felt like home

"Your environment for more productive habits by tyler to foreign of a scholarship. Darko nineteen seventies. America faced a big problem. The vietnam war was winding down and the troops were coming home addicted to heroin. There was widespread panic and a plan was concocted addicted. Troops would be held until they'd sobered up then send home with methadone. Prescriptions and carefully monitored. For relapses but the plan was never really implemented turns out. It wasn't necessary. The troops came home and for the most part their addictions and reintegrated into society. Less than five percent of them ever relapsed. A simple change of scenery cured their addiction. Decades of follow up research has uncovered. Why the environment you exist in what you're surrounded by has a profound impact on the way you behave different environments encourage different habits. Your habits are a product of your environment. What do you think about when you sit down at your computer to re dream. Oh probably nothing once. You've done something enough times in the same place.

But we're talking about no damage whatsoever. None zero you know. It's a little fishy fishy but again fully in conspiracy mode here. Not like i tend to believe the the account that you read. I tend to believe that because it seems it seems well sourced but there's some there's some weird shake on on there so let's let's go on to the second day because this this is where it gets a little weird so the next day. The mac resumes their patrols. And johnson ordered the uss turner the us turner joy to join the first destroyer on patrol of the north vietnamese coast. So that night the southie staged more raids and at this point north vietnamese installations had been attacked four separate times in five days so on the morning of august fourth. Us intelligence intercepted a report indicating that the communist intended to conduct offensive tampa. Mary tame mary tame operations maritime maritime maritime operations in the gulf of tonkin In this was done under really bad weather conditions so creating difficult detection conditions. So that night captain herrick had the two ships move out to sea to give them selves maneuver space in case of an attack however the matic's nevertheless still reported it was still tracking unidentified vessels. So i'm gonna read directly although the us destroys were operating more than one hundred miles from the north vietnamese coastline. The approaching vessels seem to come at the ships from multiple directions. Some from the northeast others from the south west. Still other targets appeared from the east mimicking attacking profiles of torpedo. Boats targets would disappear and then new targets would appear from the opposite compass direction over the next three hours to two shifts repeatedly maneuvered at high speeds to evade perceived enemy boats attacks. The destroyers reported automatic weapons fire more than twenty torpedo attacks sighting of torpedo wakes enemy cockpit lights in searchlight illumination numerous radar and surface contacts by the time destroyers broke off their counterattack they had fired two hundred and forty nine five shells one hundred and twenty three three inch shells and four or five depth charges.

"Less conspiratorial websites like we're talking about you know a article. An essay published at the naval history magazine. It's pretty pretty bland. Boring pretty bland and boring. And i read this article. It was syndicated by the naval institute. Dot org so this is this is not I'm not grabbing this from a conspiratorial source this grabbing grabbing it from a military scholar Writing a for a historic magazine. That which i'm sure has very strong fact checking and like that you know But give you some background. Nate in august of nineteen sixty four so the us uss matic's is a destroyer ship. 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.

There was a lot of resentment between the people who live there new migrants going there. It ended up being a disaster. And the he. He did. Ended up becoming a catholic chauvinist.

The hope g. men Like the communist guerrilla fighters they pretty much taking over south vietnam by the nineteen sixties. Like there they were already like. Are you know we already read some of the pentagon papers stuff They had already kind of had all their enclaves there and they've it became so desperate that Noting dam was going to try to make peace with ho chee tsim in reunify with him president and the cia when we found out the cia organized a coup to remove them against him and he was carrying a coup against the guy that they installed. Yeah i mean that's not us not not surprising. Just as easy as being stalled you could be d- installed you'll be uninstall right just as easy as you can be installed when you're when you're your main purpose is to be a puppet.

I think that's what they called it right Like we'll we'll like put a couple chips down but you know we're probably not gonna lose too much if we if we just play play cool. Play it safe but he turned into more of a kind of broader commitment policy. And you know to to remain active in the region and even expand that that That influence in the way that the pitch to the united states was just like. Oh don't worry about it like we're not it's fine. We're not going to really put boots on the ground or anything like that. Don't worry you know green beret druce green right. We're gonna we're. We're not going to really do anything. We want to make sure that we're still there And at the same time. Like kennedy's dealing with a lot of other soviet shit like around the same time. We had the berlin crisis which which is if you remember when the wall went up. It's when the soviets were like y'all get the hell out of berlin And then they put up the wall and there was like this like escalating conflict. Like are we going to go to war with soviet union or not. I don't know who you know. It was a crazy time at the moment. And you know the country is kind of getting a little bit of cold war fatigue.

It looked really bad on the world. Stage because francis vietnam. Was you know how people are like. Oh that was russia's via or so if the soviet union's vietnam when they referred to afghanistan like let's give them their own vietnam you know. That was vietnam when they fought yemen in the in the sixties Viet vietnam is vietnam. Vietnam vietnam because they lost the equal amount of soldiers like they had they had their own vietnam war right before i when we re just transition We took there but but but eisenhower to he he was he had such a hard on for this like domino theory that they ended up backing breaking apart from their other european allies and and they refused to sign that fifty four geneva accord to end that french were. 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. It was pretty hypocritical. So but what happened is that the context changed. After the korean war with american policy ultimately changed they preferred having a nato ally.

"The vietnam war had many more casualties. Tens of thousands of up soldier is dying there and It it it was. A disaster was absolute disaster and they were sacrificed. They didn't they've they were. Sacrifice like lambs was awful for bullshit for nothing. We trade with the tom. now i have. I have a friend who recently went to vietnam for vacation and she doesn't stop talking about like. 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.

"To sixty eight which later came to be known as the pentagon papers way actually read somewhere that the official official title to this study was even worse. 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. There's some validity to this. You know to were invalidity to the war. I should say in yet. Even this stuff with like julian assange. Now kill tapes. That were dropped. A lot of the at that was dropped From assange a lot of people already had known that stuff right. You know what i mean. What assange did that was different. Was that he kind of made it. He put more is on it because it was kind of a weird story but you everything that was going on in like wikileaks became like this hotline internet. A weekly pedia for like classified stuff that was released But i don't want to get too off point with that This was this was a really big impact because it was coming on a print paper. You know what. I mean like right. There was no internet. There is no moon of alabama accuracy websites to go onto. There's no forums to discuss things on you just had your paper and that was it Or other..

"And I had never read the pentagon papers and its entirety because nobody's seven thousand pages long. Yeah so i'm not saying godly. That it's too long. But it's i mean it's a i think an important part in history at the very least. Have you ever seen the movie. The post i didn't. I really wanted to at the time but i just never got around to and forgot about it but maybe i'll do that this weekend so i saw the post in theaters. And get yeah. It was fine. It was a it was whatever it was a lot of farc sniffing going on in their. I had wanted to see. It was like one of the last films. I've seen in theaters mike. Now my girlfriend doesn't like the movies theaters because she she hates bedbugs and she has a weird fear. That theater seats have bedbugs and Tell we don't. We don't really go to the movies. I'm not really a theater person either. But when we went I the choice between the post. I was fighting for the disaster artist. I love that movie was great and it. The person i went to the theater with was like no. We wanna see. I wanna see the palace and i you know i i lost. I could see how you would have been salty about that because they. The disaster artist was a masterpiece. It was. I know what though i it was good. But you'll never be just like the room compilations on youtube of you're tearing me apart. Lisa me up. Aw did not hit. The i did not hit the ohi. mock ohi mark. Oh hi mock. You'll never beat the those youtube clips bite on yet. A fortunate thing was incredible. Because you know it was just like a bunch of new york liberals watching it together who are like ooh. We're the good guys you do. You know that cross you know aspirin for to like you know as written time of trump. So they're getting at like. Oh you know the media sticking up for democracy which right in for public knowledge and all that stuff You know the context behind the film. I mean i think it was variable. Give hair. it's a fair narrative to put out. I think especially when we talk a little bit more about this particular about this particular issue. So let's let's talk regardless of what you feel about that. Just my biased against anything that comes out of hollywood and stuff like that air fair enough nam a is going to be hostile to it but the pentagon papers was something that was really you now a heroic thing to do and neil daniel ellsberg definitely put a lot on the line to do that you know. It was basically the secret history of the vietnam war and ensure it exposed the systematic lying. That was going on from the truman administration to the nixon administration and daniel ellsberg. Who he was he was a. He was a an analyst at the rand corporation and he was a consultant to the department of the fence. He had even served under henry kissinger he served consulted at henry kissinger outlets railway. Y'all so served as a us marine corps officer from fifty four to fifty seven in the actually did combat missions in vietnam. So it's particularly interesting that he was doing this particular research Because he literally had boots on the ground like experience. Yeah he i think. He worked in the ambassadors offices in saigon mum but in sixty four he officially joined the defense department and ended up working on. You know the the top secret. Macnamara study never title. Us decision making in nineteen forty nine hundred forty five.

You're not a not having some cowboy launch nukes a at cities or near cities. Like you have to consult with me before we do that. I have to a final. Say that's like you did. I mean like. I'm glad that that's what they changed. The wording to but it also is kind of stupid still because it's like not boldly saying like no. Don't don't compete. You know what. I mean like nuking is still on the table dude. It's a cold war. Come on still just the the the flagrant idea like. Oh yeah. we're we're gonna we're gonna we're gonna help out changcai shack who's coincidentally is is literally carrying out guerrilla warfare on mainland china the nuts. The nut jobs and the pentagon in the fifties and sixties. You know thank god that now. The nukes were under civilian control right But to to finish this up So that chief of naval operations. Admiral arleigh burke. Are you that if the us did not maintain the threat of tactical nuclear weapons and conflicts. It would lose the entire world within three years I get it so it's like you know they can't. They can't seem weak or that they wouldn't use it so they always had to threaten the use of it so that they can maintain their hegemony on the world. And that was the argument for for writing this policy. Yeah that was the that was the argument that you know we had to be seen as off and on draw when it came to this because you know other countries were developing nuclear weapons but Yeah it's it's pretty crazy to think how eager the joint chiefs were to use nuclear weapons back in the fifties now. It seems that if you look at some of the proposals the they that they provided you know it seemed like got. They wanted to nuke everyone. Sometimes but i mean that's why there is so many of these like weird films to come out in the seventies about our sixties about nuclear wars Like parody type films but I wanna talk about daniel ellsberg. Because something i did not realize was that. It was the fiftieth anniversary of the release of the pentagon papers yet. Is this mine. And i had. I had honestly zero clo-.

He says state land is generally closer to their homes than what they would receive through the federal program.

Who Invented the High Five?
"The origin of the high five is kind of disputed slash not really exactly known a forerunner to the high five was the low five part of black american culture since at least the nineteen twenties. But when did it turn up. High and spread further afoot. Was it from the women's volleyball circuit in the nineteen sixties american. Gi's in tokyo during world. War two apparently magic johnson even once implied that he invented it while it michigan state's which blows my mind because my dad was in the same dorm building as magic johnson. Who like was my dad present for the invention of the high five. Probably not. But i suppose i should ask him just in case. Even if magic johnson himself didn't create it he was most likely there when it first started taking off of the top contenders for its origin. They all take place in the late. Nineteen seventies in the world of sports. One story goes that it was created by wiley brown and derek smith from the university of louisville cardinals during the nineteen. Seventy eight seventy nine basketball season. Since their team was nicknamed the doctors of dunk. Doing the standard low five didn't make sense. Their team was all about that vertical movement so they started slapping their hands together when held high above their heads. Brown and smith who passed away in nineteen ninety-six. Get a big chunk of the credit for creating the high five in the press and one reason is because so much footage of the cardinals. High fiving tests highlight reels. A level of evidence not shared by many of the other origin stories but another origin story. A lot of people are familiar with. Is that lamont. Fleets a basketball player from murray state. University also playing around nineteen seventy nine. The story goes that lamont's dead lamont's leads senior had served in the first battalion. Fifth infantry in the vietnam war the infantry was nicknamed the five and after the war when lamont junior was just a little kid. The guys would often stop by his house to visit with his dad.

When you're so young you said the short answer was a nightmare. I was all too keen to leave behind. My masters adviser had rejected my thesis on the bangladesh war of independence after. I refused to sleep with him and he said one wasn't related to the other. Just tell me what happened. This was nineteen seventy two and there weren't that many women in graduate school and he made a move. And i said no. He pressed on and i said no he rejected. The thesis. said. I had to work harder on it. Then resisted any idea that one related to the other. That even made a pass at me.
