Hi. I'm glad we managed to get that sorted out on the McNamara page. Out of curiosity, though, might I ask you a question? I have met a number of people who feel, as you do, that McNamara's performance in Vietnam was atrocious (and I feel this way too) but also that his pronouncements since have been similarly flawed. It seems to me that most of his stances have changed significantly post-1968, and I'm not sure why people disagree with his work on, say, nuclear arms. Is it just the manner of enunciation? He certainly has an imperious manner at times, but does that alone make him wrong? Deleuze 05:16, 4 Jun 2005 (UTC)

IMHO, he changed his stances to be readmitted to the Kennedy clique. His advocacy, IMV, discredits any position he supports.The man is still an opportunist, & a suckup, attempting to rehabilitate his reputation. 57,000 dead Americans, & a nation torn apart, will prevent that from happening. He should just do the world a service & die already. Give the devil back what is his.-- Achilles 15:20, 2 July 2005
