NOTE: This was written for broadcast and reflects the thoughts of Neal Barton.

I grew up in Southeast Texas, and like you, I watched the Vietnam War every night on TV. Once a week, Walter Cronkite showed us the death count.

So this was brought to my attention last Friday and I had no answer.

LBJ’s war in Vietnam was torpedoed by only a few reporters and photographers with caveman primitive video-sharing techniques. Yet, there was enough video there to turn public opinion.

Fast forward to Ukraine. Everyone has a cell phone. Where’s the video, except for what is sanitized?

And by the way, how about a receipt and itemization on where that money we’re sending them is going?

That’s my point of view, what’s yours? You can email me at or Facebook me at KETK Neal Barton.
