Who Really Spat on Veterans During the Vietnam War?.

Americans overwhelmingly believe that U.S. combat veterans returning from Vietnam were spit on by anti-war protesters in airports. Many vets will tell you it happened, and others will tell you that they never saw anything close to it.

The Schizophrenic Syrian War.

Both Russia and the U.S. want ISIS defeated but then we have U.S.-supported rebels fighting Syrian troops. Supposedly, Russia only attacks ISIS, not the U.S.-supported rebels. Then throw into the mix, the growing tension between Russia and the U.S., i.e., the allegation that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election, and the U.S. sanctions...

Command Sergeant Major John Holland on John McCain - 'Hanoi John'.

Some of us have seen the reports about John McCain. I know what Ted Guy had to say about McCain and I know how angry POW activists have been at his betrayal of their cause.

Libya: Can We  Have the 'Lady Be Good' Back Now Please?December 13, 2011, 3:15 am 2 comments in the last 180 days. comments
Libya: Can We Have the 'Lady Be Good' Back Now Please?.

I don't think it's easy to take a single story from the pages of aviation history and call it the 'best' or 'most interesting' because the competition is fierce, but the doomed crew of the World War Two B24 Liberator 'Lady Be Good' ranks for the title if any do. The crew became hopelessly lost and because they were flying at night, they ultimately came to believe they were over the ocean, just about to run out of fuel, and this is what led to their decision to bail out.

Marijuana Committees and the Mexican Mafia: Are they Partners? .

It is astonishing the way efforts toward legalizing marijuana use have gone since about the 1970’s when Vietnam War Veterans brought it back home with them. Years before that, it was Caribbean islanders and African-American musicians who carefully transmitted marijuana from New Orleans to Memphis, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York City and essentially all along the East Coast.

Republican Sex Scandals Dwarf Those of Democrats.

"He who lives in a glass house should not throw stones." It seems that old adage may be lost on the confused mass that we call modern society. The Grand Old Party, once known for controversial abolitionists, has become the moral party of today, or so their elected leaders will tell you.
