Comment: My indirect reference to Viet Nam

In reply to comment: My uncle was a Vietnam vet, (see in situ)

My indirect reference to Viet Nam

was made to point out the hypocrisy of setting up business with a nation who a couple of years before was killing Americans, over 50,000 of them, for being in their country. On the other hand we have a country 90 miles off the coast of the U.S. that has, other than their flirtation with the soviets, never menaced us and has an embargo upon them that keeps me from enjoying the finest cigars in the world. I don't hate Japanese people either, I'm just leery of their sense of national pride and their deeply instilled sense of superiority. Our defeat of their military was a bitter pill for many to accept, even to this day, not to mention the resentment of a different race utilizing atomic weapons against them, not quite what they would refer to as "Bushido".

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.
