"This Time We Win"

Way back in the last millennium, Great Satan faced a COIN Op in South East Asia called Viet Nam. Split like NoKo and SoKo today, the Northern half was led by the expansionist Bolshevikish type colletivism ala Ho Chi Minh. The South had a series of corrupt governments that could never seem to get their act together and under ammoral, corrupt Realpolitik - never really had to.

The Myth of the Tet Offensive claimed Great Satan was defeated in the field by NVA Regulars and behind the lines by a super ninja cadre of bullet proof communist guerrillas at the same incredible instant.

And none of it is true. Instead, the South's undercover Viet Cong spent themselves in a bloody insurrection that gained absolutely nothing and were annihilated to the point of never mounting any Resistance ever again. The losses in trained subversives, true believers and militant sympathizers would never be reconstituted.

Long time FoPo Expert, Nat'l Sec Cat, historian, author and member of GrEaT sAtAn"S gIrLfRiEnD's board of advisory directors Dr James S Robbins' hot! new book about Tet goes to press today (order your advance copy here).

Entitled "This Time We Win: Revisiting The Tet Offensive," the collected intell on it looks sweet!

"...Most of what Americans know about the Tet Offensive is wrong. The brief 1968 battle during the Vietnam conflict marked the dividing line between gradual progress towards an ill-defined victory, and slow descent to a humiliating defeat.

"...The fact that the enemy was, in fact, handily defeated on the ground was immaterial; that they could mount an attack at all was deemed a military triumph for the Vietcong. At least this is the received wisdom of Tet.

"...This Time We Win at last provides an antidote to the flawed Tet mythology that continues to shape the perceptions of American military conflicts against unconventional enemies and haunt our troops in combat. Indeed, America’s enemies recognize and find inspiration in the prevailing Tet narrative.

A thorough re-examination of the Tet Offensive, this essential work examines the battle in the familiar frameworks of terrorism, war crimes, intell failure, troop surges, leadership breakdown, and media bias.

"...The result is an explosion of the conventional wisdom on this infamous battle, one that offers real lessons for today’s unconventional wars. Without a clear understanding of these lessons, we will find ourselves reliving the Tet Offensive again and again.

the media lied to us then just as they lie to us now. I just saw Obama stand there and claim the markets are adding jobs for six months straight. He lied. Do you think anyone in the media will call him on it? People in the media today are facists who want to rule you and live off of your money.

As it is now, just before all the tax hikes and mandates, I am alread working from january into may as a tax slave for the government. Everything I earn for the first 4 months of every year goes to the government. Don't tell me that is Social Security when I see the democrats moving to eliminate my retirement (while politicians and public employees retirements get richer and richer)

Get on You Tube and look up a Lefty congresswoman from Houston named Sheila Jackson Lee speaking on Vietnam recently. To hear her tell it, we won. . .
