I AIN’T GOT NO QUARREL WITH THEM RUSSIANS

The entire anti-Russia brouhaha has reminded me of what Mohammad Ali stated after receiving notice from his local draft board that he was being forced to serve in the U.S. military during the Vietnam War. Ali declared. “I ain’t got no quarrel with them Vietcong.”

Ali had a point. After all, what had the Vietcong done to him or any other American? No Vietcong had ever come to the United States and attacked civilians, soldiers, or CIA or NSA agents. No Viet Cong had ever expressed any interest in invading and conquering the United States and taking over the federal government and the nation’s public-school systems. All that they were doing was trying to win a civil war that would put the entire country under the rule of Ho Chi Minh, a declared communist.

What did that have to do with Mohamad Ali or any other American? Oh, sure, the Viet Cong were killing U.S. soldiers but those soldiers were over there. Operating on orders of the Pentagon, they had invaded a foreign land thousands of miles away from the United States. They had embroiled themselves in another nation’s civil war. They were killing people over there. If they hadn’t invaded, no Vietcong would have come to get us despite the Pentagon’s and CIA’s Cold War claim of a worldwide communist conspiracy that was supposedly based in Moscow, Russia, whose aim was supposedly to start knocking down countries like dominoes until they finally got the Big Domino,which was the United States.
