21. Semantic Games
NLF/VC/Charlie/Viet Cong...call them whatever you wish, the point of the post was in the many protests I was at during the late 60s and early 70s, none were in support of the North Vietnamese or the NLF/VietCong/VC/VietMihn or anything other than to bring our troops home. We didn't care what happened to Vietnam, all we cared was to end the draft, the war and bring the troops home.

The opinion was this was a civil war we had no business being in, but to say that those of us who supported the war were also in support of the North Vietnamese or the NLF or any faction is wrong. I vivdly remember rallies where a North Vietnamese flag would come out and the crowd would boo. Most times those with the flag had other agendas in mind.

Again, all we cared was to end the American involvement in the war, be it against the Vietnamese, the Khmer Rouge or the "insurgents".
