It's Vietnam Again

When American troops returned from Vietnam they were frequently shocked to find that the country for which they were fighting, the country for which they were risking their lives, had turned on them in their absence. They were frequently called "baby killers", were spat upon, had hot plastic thrown on them when they arrived at the airport, etc. It's not clear where all this left-wing virulence came from but some have pointed the finger at John Kerry and his testimony before the Senate to the effect that there were war crimes being committed by American troops all over the place and at every level in Vietnam.

Now attacks on the servicemen seem to be happening again.
