Now, boys and girls...
Be sweet. All we older folks are saying is that YOU All kids need to read your history books on this thing.
We are going to state the obvious. Our country got right in the middle of a Vietnamese civil war. That much is for sure.
Denying history, and revising it for your own ends, will just get people to think you are a few bricks short of a full load. Your elders were misguided if they thought there was no civil war in 'Nam. The Civil War in 'Nam was a historical fact.
