Sorry, I was out of area at the time.
Catch us up on what it was like.....
For me, we were forming up with the remnants of the colnel's coup in Libya.
The big joke of course has been that as the long pull of kharma, I would
wind up meeting the american nurse who would be pulled out of the way
when Idi Amin, that great bastion of lex rex from Libya, would have his
daughter treated in Libya, after the PLA trained Tanzanian forces would
overrun Uganda..... But of course after interviewing one of their company
commanders, there was little to learn that had not already been reported
about PLA tactics....
Hell, Maybe you can help me understand whether or not Libya was a part
of the Western EuroKentric Cultural Imperialists for supporting Uganda
against The People's Revolutionary Forces from Tanzania, or was this
merely the sort of clear ideological deviationalism we should have seen
coming when the Maoists opted for the cult of personality in lieu of
adopting the Khruschevianist thaw during the de-stalinization period.
Or was is suppose to be the otherway around, that the Dengist Capitalist
Roaders, were the true torch bearers of the correct implementation of
the marxists-leninist policy, in spite of the fact that this would leave
them aligned, ideologically at least, with the soviet hegomonists, and
their puppet toadies in Hanoi, who would use german blitzkrieg tactics
to overrun the Correct Implementation by the Khmer Rouge, in kampuchea.
But I guess that we can all agree that no one is really suprised that
after the evil reaganites supported the talliban against the correct
implementation of socialist fraternalism in afghanistan, that it is
not too surprising that american vietnam era vets and soviet afghani
vets share a common concern about the fact that back home the party
ideologs, who were unable to attend the war, because, well, like
they were having a bad hair day, are still trumpetting the same sort
of pro-patria rhetoric that has lead the american right wingers to
jump in bed with the hanoi regime against our armed fellow travellors
who would shoot it out in Cholon during the Tet Offensive, and die
in their fighting positions in waves, especially now that it is
as inconvenient to their northern bretheran, as their presence had
been to the TV watchers of the sixties.
But what can we do if their government decides to screw over their
veterans of the war, just like the americans....
In the end, as one of my brothers who was hanging out on Tu Do street
a couple of years back, and this VC grey hair, sitting on the stoop
across the way, and giving him stink eye, for being a round eye, would,
after one of those 'new version' females in an ao dai, on a moped,
transitted their AO, and both, noticing out of the corner of their
eye, that all ideology aside, one just has got to respect natural talent.
Don't really matter who was shooting at whom at the time.
"Ain't that worth fighting for?"
a look most warriors still understand,
all politics aside.....
