Democracy apparently didn't work out in Iraq either. Armed forces melt away, just like the ARVN.

Images of the last chopper leaving the roof of the US embassy in Saigon come into this old head.  That wasn't the end of American might in the 1970s and this won't be the end in the 2010's.  In both cases Uncle Sam threw away lives and money.  Back then the president and congress had the sense not to throw good lives and money after bad.  Will they have the same good sense today?
