History Lesson for Traitor Pelosi

Look at what happened when we withdrew from Vietnam:

Timeline of U.S. Pullout of the Vietnam War

January 27, 1973

All warring parties in the Vietnam War sign a cease fire.

March 1973

The last American combat soldiers leave South Vietnam, though military advisors and Marines, who are protecting U.S. installations, remain. For the United States, the war is officially over.

January 1974

Though they are still too weak to launch a full-scale offensive, the North Vietnamese have rebuilt their divisions in the South, and have captured key areas.

December 26, 1974

The 7th North Vietnamese Army division captures Dong Xoai.

January 6, 1975

In a disastrous loss for the South Vietnamese, the NVA take Phuoc Long city and the surrounding province.

March 1, 1975

A powerful NVA offensive is unleashed in the Central Highlands of South Vietnam. The resulting South Vietnamese retreat is chaotic and costly, with nearly 60,000 troops dead or missing.

During March

Another NVA offensive sends 100,000 soldiers against the major cities of Quang Tri, Hue and Da Nang. Backed by powerful armored forces and eight full regiments of artillery, they quickly succeed in capturing Quang Tri province.

March 25, 1975

Hue, South Vietnam's third largest city, falls to the North Vietnamese Army.

Early April 1975

Five weeks into its campaign, the North Vietnamese Army has made stunning gains. Twelve provinces and more than eight million people are under its control. The South Vietnamese Army has lost its best units, over a third of its men, and almost half its weapons.

April 30, 1975

At 4:03 a.m., two U.S. Marines are killed in a rocket attack at Saigon's Tan Son Nhut airport. They are the last Americans to die in the Vietnam War. At dawn, the last Marines of the force guarding the U.S. embassy lift off. Only hours later, looters ransack the embassy, and North Vietnamese tanks role into Saigon, ending the war. In 15 years, nearly a million NVA and Vietcong troops and a quarter of a million South Vietnamese soldiers have died. Hundreds of thousands of civilians had been killed.

What do you think will happen when Pelosi pulls our troops out of Iraq? And remember, Iran has nuclear weapon capability. America was attacked on 9/11 by terrorists. Insurgents in Iraq will not go quietly into that good night.

Speaking of good night, I fear that is what America will be saying once we withdrawal our troops out of Iraq. We are heading for disasters worse than Pearl Harbor and September 11th combined.
