Vietnam? Oh yeah, we lost that one pretty bad. Terrible, terrible idea.
Afghanistan? That's still going on, but odds of winning are pretty low. It's basically Vietnam all over again. I sure do hope we figure out to stop trying to fight against insurgencies, but we probably never will!
MacArthur wanted to nuke China. He was totally crazy and Truman was right in pulling his ass outta Korea.
