22. remember the casulty reports from Vietnam?
Walter Cronkite would report weekly totals every Friday. It was grisley. There were always more of the "enemy" killed than Americans. I remember thinking if we added up all the "enemy" killed as reported by the military/media during Vietnam it would have totaled more than the population of Vietnam.

Hearts and minds. Body counts. Puppet governments. It's not as bad as you think. We are winning. We can't just get out the place will erupt. Body bags. All phrases repeated day after day, year after year during Vietnam.

This is just like vietnam.
