Vietnam's passion 

Another one of the Cold War's unfinished businesses. While the rest of the South East Asia manufactures export goods, Vietnam only manufactures martyrs - up to 400 killed by security forces over Easter.

Messrs Latham, Kerry, Kennedy et al - I know that you have now moved on to another Vietnam, but this is what actually happens in the real Vietnam once you have succeed in sabotaging the US's foreign policy. So cut and run from Iraq, and in thirty years' time you will still have the Shias, Sunnis and Kurds killing each other, over religion, ethnicity or maybe over that famed oil. Except it will be out of sight and out of mind of the world community, because by that stage you will have moved onto yet another, brand new Vietnam.
