It's pretty damn amazing that the right wing is now blaming Mark Felt, the erstwhile source known as Deep Throat, for, get this, losing the Vietnam War, displaying as usual their incredible knowledge of history.

I hate to point it out to the fighting keyboard brigade out there, but Vietnam was lost on Day One. It was lost when the French were there (read Street Without Joy). It was lost when we were there. It was lost when we left the South Vietnamese on their own. Absent the will to slaughter tens of millions of North Vietnamese with nuclear weapons, it was unwinnable. And even that might not have worked.

So shut the hell up and go away.
