Vietnam was a noble cause badly fought. By the time of the Tet Offensive, the war was unwinnable and we needed to get out. But up to that point, the war was winnable and we needed to win it, for the sake of the people of South Vietnam who were subject to communist aggression.

The Cold War, in my view, needed to be fought, because of the expansionist, aggressive, and totalitarian nature of Soviet and Chinese communism. The problem of course is what to do once that threat disappeared.

In other words, Goldwater - yes, Reagan - yes, Obama - no.
