By: Lisa Barron | NewsMax

A new documentary suggests that a former U.S. Army veteran is alive and living in a remote village in Vietnam more than four decades after he was shot down and presumed dead.

According to “Unclaimed,” a documentary by award-winning Canadian filmmaker Michael Jorgenson, an elderly man found in a village in southern Vietnam may be Sgt. John Hartley Robertson, a former Green Beret shot down in 1968, reports the British newspaper the Independent.

Not For Nuthin’

Call me a romantic.

Maybe it was the impressionability of youth.

Maybe I’m nostalgic for those bygone days.

The truth is, the longer I live the more convinced I am that with a few exceptions aside, 1967-1972 was the most productive, the most prolific and the most precious five years in all of rock ‘n roll.

This well-known Vietnam Era song came to mind after posting the following article today:
“Something of Historic Proportion is Happening” (History Repeating?)

Somethings Happening Here

Buffalo Springfield

There’s something happening here
What it is ain’t exactly clear
There’s a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it’s time we stop, children, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down

There’s battle lines being drawn
Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

I think it’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down

What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side

It’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you’re always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away

We better stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
Stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
Stop, now, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
Stop, children, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down

Obama’s pessimism is simply old school anti-Americanism dressed up in patriotic rhetoric.”

From the New York Post:

WAR BLINDNESS
Dems’ Vietnam Blinkers

by Linda Chavez

Obama Lies About Iraq ProgressBarack Obama must be too busy declaring victory to read a newspaper. How else can you explain his obliviousness to what is going on in Iraq at this very moment?

Both The New York Times and the Washington Post this week had front-page stories about successful operations by Iraqi forces to root out Shiite militias in Baghdad’s Sadr City — a significant turning point in the war and a huge accomplishment for Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.

But there Obama was Tuesday evening patting himself on the back for his Oregon primary victory while once again repeating the same old tired formulation about the “failed” Bush policy in Iraq, “that asks everything of our troops and nothing of Iraqi politicians.” (more…)

Does one call a spade a spade? Should one? Should anyone?

No one calls Australians who were banished from England, refugees, and no one calls Australia a refugee camp.

No one calls American Indians who resettled on new lands, refugees and no one calls their lands refugee camps.

No one calls the starving Irish who left Ireland, refugees, and no one calls their neighborhoods in Boston and NYC, refugee camps. (more…)

Congressman Sam Johnson served in the U.S. Air Force for 29-years as a highly decorated pilot. He flew combat missions in both the Korean and Vietnam Wars and was a prisoner of war in Hanoi for nearly seven years. Then, in 1991, he embarked on a new mission of service – representing the people of Texas’ third district in the United States Congress. He is a disabled American veteran, a hero, patriot, and someone to whom the seditious left needs to listen.

Tet, Khe San, Pleiku, Da Nang, Mekong, Hue, Ch Chi, DMZ, Central Highlands, I Corps, Haiphong, and others are words etched in my memory since adolescence.

Each one conjures up a visual image gleaned from magazines, TV news, first hand accounts from returnees or the story behind someone not returning. Words unfamiliar to more and more people. (more…)
