    Are you saying that the antiwar movement forced U.S. withdrawal? If so, I'd
    be interested in your evidence. Can you come up with a reasonable scenario
    by which America could have "won" the war? Do you believe that the U.S.
    should have intervened in all nations where evil was being done? Is it not
    possible that had we withdrawn in 1965 that millions who died between
    1965-1975 would in fact not have? I realize these questions cannot be
    answered easily, but I'd appreciate some brief thoughts.
