Take Time To Know Your Enemy

A Reminder From the VietNam War From General Giap
by Alex Noble
“We no longer take the time to know our enemy; however, for a long time our enemies have taken the time to know us! This same tactic is being applied today.”
“Take Time to Know Your Enemy.”
Poster #86, by Alex Noble
“General Giap was a brilliant, highly respected leader of the  North Vietnam military. The following quote is from his memoirs currently found in the Vietnam war memorial in  Hanoi : ‘What we still don’t understand is why you Americans stopped the bombing of  Hanoi.  You had us on the ropes. If you had pressed us a little harder, just for another day or two, we were ready to surrender! It was the same at the battle of TET. You defeated us! We knew it, and we thought you knew it. But we were elated to notice your media was helping us. They were causing more disruption in America than we could in the battlefields. We were ready to surrender. You had won!’

General Giap has published his memoirs and confirmed what most Americans knew. The Vietnam war was not lost in  Vietnam – it was lost at home. The same slippery slope, sponsored by the  US media, is currently underway. It exposes the enormous power of a Biased Media to cut out the heart and will of the American public.

A truism worthy of note: … Do not fear the enemy, for they can take only your life. Fear the media, for they will destroy your honor.

Please pass this on to everyone on your email list.  Chances are they may already know it but this confirms it.”

    It helps to identify the enemy first. The media didn’t cause the Vietnam War and the eventual outcome. Lyndon Johnson and his phony Gulf of Tonkin incident was a major contributor. The killing of the President of South Vietnam instigated by a US president was a major contributing factor. The fact there was never a strategy, never a definition of why we were there, what our goals were for being there, what would constitute a win, what it would require to end it in language clearly understood and supported by the US population, however, was the over-riding factor.

    We never took time to know our enemy because our enemy was disguised as the President of the United States.

      @OldJules, I must admit that I was surprised by the comments in the General’s memoirs, but the latter comments about the media are becoming more and more apparent to more and more people. The reason that I fear the future; I believe that Occupy Wall Street is just a beginning.
