    Thanks for clarifying that J alegarbes. Much appreciated. I think the deeper meaning of his post, however, is the fact that 1924 marked the end of the United States occupation of the Dominican Republic, and the significance of that date as it pertained to those living in the Vietnam era as we occupied Vietnam. The obvious parallel is the lessons we are familiar with in Vietnam as we occupy Afghanistan.

    Also, Neil Degrasse Tyson is smarter than you.

    He`s right, but why?

    Is he just being random?

    Because the war in Afghanistan is so similar to Vietnam.

    Actually, they have no parallels whatsoever.

    Of course they do, and they are so obvious that I will not waste my time going over them with you. Believe what you want sir.

    This isn`t his "perspective" on it--it`s just an interesting tidbit.

    Here`s a fun fact: Christopher Columbus` voyage to the Americas in 1492 is as far in the past now as the year 972 AD was to it. The similarity between this fact and NdGT`s? No one cares.

    Is 1924 the end of WW1 or something? Is he saying the vietnam war occurred as many years after "the war to end all wars" as we are now from the vietnam war, i.e. we may get into another quagmire war, we are forgetful, etc?

    Maybe I`ve read too much into this....

    NDT does basic arithmetic - how amazingly profound. Next he`ll be tying his own shoelaces. If that`s a real quote rather than a parody, he`s quickly becoming a caricature of himself.

    This isn`t a perspective on war, it`s more of a Zen koan actually.

    Can`t tell if you are being serious or sarcastic. Surely the year must mean something. If not this, then what does it mean?

    That`s what I would have thought, except WWI ended November 11, 1918 (hence, Veterans Day)

    I think the point is "holy crap, Vietnam was a really long time ago`.

    In other news, its been nearly 20 years since pogs were popular, and 14 years since Pokemon was released. Time goes by quick, eh?

    You can`t? Good, because it hasn`t, it`s only been 10 years, 11 in September. I hope you were kidding.

    This has been driving me crazy all day trying to figure out the significance of 1924. I think I finally figured it out

    One of the top 5 worst acts of racism in United States history
