Bruce Willis on Vietnam

leave a comment »

Bruce Willis, of Diehard fame, who also happens to be a diehard Republican (Geddit? Thanks Peter Overton…) has a novel view of the Vietnam War:

The perception in the modern world is that America lost the Vietnam War. A lot of Australians fought in the Vietnam War. But if the free world had not fought in Vietnam for 15 years, there would be no multibillion-dollar free trade world in the Pacific Rim. There would be no Taiwan. So we held back that communism that would want to shut down that free trade. And if a free trade economy is established in the Middle East, hopefully, a similar thing could happen.

Thus, the Vietnam War brought KFC to Vietnam (one opened very recently in Saigon – the locals regard it with amusement). Score one for the free world.
