I am a student of history and I suspected this for many years, I wonder what would have happened of the same media that we have today and during the Vietnam war was around during WWII, how different it would have turned out. The same media will protest and use our laws and system against us wouldn't survive the tender mercies of our enemies, in WWII the Germans would have put them in concentration camps and the Japanese would have beheaded them.
"What we still don't understand is why you Americans stopped the bombing of Hanoi . You had us on the ropes. If you had pressed us a little harder, just for another day or two, we were ready to surrender! It was the same at the battle of TET. You defeated us!
We knew it, and we thought you knew it.
But we were elated to notice your media was helping us. They were causing more disruption in America than we could in the battlefields. We were ready to surrender. You had won!"
General Giap has published his memoirs and confirmed what most Americans knew. The Vietnam war was not lost in Vietnam - it was lost at home. The same slippery slope, sponsored by the US media, is currently underway. It exposes the enormous power of a biased media to cut out the heart and will of the American public.
A truism worthy of note:
Do not fear the enemy,
for they can take only your life.
Fear the media,
for they will destroy your honor ! ! !
