Pissing on Graves with Mark Steyn

Mark Steyn didn’t like Walter Cronkite because Cronkite had the temerity to criticize the US involvement in Vietnam. Steyn is one of those loopy conservatives that still wants to re-fight Vietnam. Get over it. You lost. Ho Chi Minh and his rag-tag band of insurgents may not have had the fire power, but they had the will power and the popular support. America blinked, America ran away and America’s ally – the dictatorial, corrupt South Vietnamese regime – lost. Cronkite may have hastened the inevitable, but it’s still hard to conceive of a scenario in which the US would have bothered to muster the troops and equipment to actually conquer North Vietnam.
