Look on the bright side: unlike in Vietnam, there won't be any "secret bombing" of another country. America has progressed much more since that so that now Obama can openly announce he fully intends to bomb Pakistan, and has already started doing so, in addition to Afghanistan, and American liberals happily cheer on.
