He’s at it again. This time at CPAC.
While speaking on a panel entitled “Too Many American Wars? Should We Right Anywhere and Can We Afford It?” at CPAC, Rep. Louie Gohmert kicked off his remarks by railing against the handling of the Vietnam War, asserting that “Vietnam was winnable but people in Washington decided we would not win it!”
Gohmert went on a declare that if the US had made just one more week’s worth of bombing runs over Vietnam, the Viet Cong would have surrendered unconditionally.
If you’ve got the guts, you can click that link above and go see a You Tube of it.
It should be noted that while Louie did serve in the Army from 1978–1982, three years after Viet Nam. He was in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps, which means the most dangerous place he saw was a courtroom.
Yeah, just a week. That was all it would have taken.
Thanks to Warner and Tim for the heads up.
