Another bit of irony, one perhaps more tragic than humorous, was that both "Vietnam Veteran" hats I saw were, of course, made in Vietnam. Imagine that somewhere in Hanoi an old guerrilla commander is now making a good living for himself by marketing those hats.
Or imagine that an orphan who lost her parents to an American napalm attack is now working twelve-hour days in one of those factories, stitching memorabilia for sale to veterans. Reconciliating is a very strange thing, indeed. (5) opinions -- Add your opinion
Your admiration for the president is affecting your otherwise excellent English skills. I believe the word you're looking for is reconciling.
Those Vietnamese are much more likely to have lost their parents to Viet Namese communist assassination teams and death camps.
That orphan would be in his mid thirtys at this point.Post a Comment
But I agree, it would be better to make the trinkets in th US, and let the bastard starve.
