America was founded on protests so Americans have an affinity for protests but there are good and bad protests. There are right and wrong protests. Because of the bad and wrong protests against American involvement in the Vietnam war millions were killed that should have lived. The killings are the fault of the American Left protestors who forced America to leave Indochina without defeating the totalitarian governments that came to power because there was no resistance to their power seeking.

One of the best set of circumstances that led to the American defeat and the rise of communist and totalitarian dictatorships is listed by Henry Kissinger in “Years of Upheaval”.
Some might try to diminish Kissinger’s and Nixon’s actions to win the war but they are clearly shown in Years of Upheaval to be the fault of a weakened bargaining position created by the massive protests caused inside America by the enemies of America. People like Jane Fonda ….developing .
