I have no problem supporting my own country when my country makes smart decisions that are morally justified. This case meets neither of those criteria.

We lost Vietnam because of the hippies? I thought it was because we rushed headlong into a protracted ground war against guerrilla forces fighting for autonomy along side a corrupt pro-U.S. government. Wait....
