Swing low, sweet chariot, coming for ta carry me home ...

Makes the assholes' profiteering on the misery of millions into a joyous, tuneful celebration!
Hehehe, static images of political figures with superimposed moving lips singing the Abba hit song "Waterloo" in a way that highlights the injustices of our day and age in a whimsical manner. Hehehe. Sigh.
I think I'm crying.
Since I'm drunk and headed out again for more pride-ing - I feel it falls to me to point out that in spite of Abba's claim to the contrary Napoleon did NOT surrender at Waterloo. He merely ran away, which is what we'll ultimately do after a similarly pointless campaign.
As for the Vietnam history schtick, try this out:
Other than that the parallel generally annoys me because Ho Chi Minh was a west-loving, deomcratic socialist with the support of the vast majority of his country, and the only reason there was anything like a resistance to Ho was because we created it (though it always was mostly just us).
The comparison isn't fair to Vietnam.
I believe that song is still under copyright.
