"Is it Vietnam yet?"

(The title is from a list of bumper stickers circulating the internet.)

Drew sent me a link to an article by his friend John Graham, who was a civilian adviser for the State Department in Vietnam during a time when the U.S. was looking for a graceful exit from that quagmire. John notes distinct similarities between then and now. (Note: In the story, the Vietnamese city "Hue" appears as "Hu?" because the font used is not coded for the proper diacritical marks.) See: "The Mess We Left Behind"
