GUEST,Rick BS: MORE credit for Bush (105* d) RE: BS: MORE credit for Bush 25 Apr 01

I'm not sure it really matters who sent in the first troops. The U.S. was footing the bill for much of the war in Indochina from the end of WW2. Even tho' intelligence on the ground in Hanoi (1954) repeatedly asserted that any solution had to include Ho Chi Min, this was politically unpallatable in Washington. Denying Ho (who's hero was George Washington, by the way) was one of the key mistakes in dragging us into a military involvement. This thread seems to have strayed from the Bush/credit theme. Those interested in whether "the shrub" is our legitimate president should track down the Miami Herald April 5-7 articles on the recount.
