Well, since you put it that way.
I had been focused on how wonderful it is that we can be friends now. I have been mightily impressed for years at the ability of the Vietnamese people to overlook our shared past and treat individual Americans with forbearance and acceptance. Thanks for that.
And that shared past went on way past 1975, too. That's quite a list of horrors in the cartoon. All Vietnam did to "deserve" it was fight for their own rights in their own country.
I'm grateful every day that people around the world can separate American people from the American government, and direct their negative feelings appropriately.
Oh, yeah . . . the cartoon. (From Truthdig.com)
