One of the discouraging things about the Ken Burns series “The Vietnam War” (which just finished airing on PBS) is that it appears that the United States forgot the lessons of the Vietnam War and worse yet, we’ve repeated these mistakes in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Mike Musselman and Mike McNamara discuss the final episode of the Ken Burns series, (1) the Vietnam Wall, (2) the fate that was left to the South Vietnamese people and (3) the sad parallels they see between what they saw in the Vietnam War series and what they’ve seen in Iraq and Afghanistan.
