OpEdNews Article: Article: The Battle Over What Vietnam Means: Individual Honor or Unpleasant History? | Global politics | Scoop.it
The war is long over, but the struggle over its meaning in the American mind is still raging. The Pentagon's $65 million clean-up campaign -- the Vietnam War Commemoration Project -- is only one side of the fight.

Slavoj Zizek

‘Prince of Darkness’ Disowns Iraq’s Tragedy | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

As Iraq stands on the verge of a complete breakdown into mini sectarian states, former leading neoconservative and Iraq war advocate Richard Perle has chimed in on the situation on Newsmax TV. His statements in an interview given on Saturday were yet another testimony to the intellectual degeneration of a group that had once promised a ‘new Middle East’, only to destabilize the region with violent consequences that continue to reverberate until this day.
