    Good letter from Senator McCain, especially coming from a former Navy POW.

    I think the PLAN is about to learn what Kublai Khan learned many centuries ago, Vietnam is not to be discounted as an adversary. They are tenacious and cunning, differences in size of the two countries not withstanding. Another good ally to have, IMO, as our former enemies, Japan and Germany, are to this day.

    well if the Sale of refurbish S-3 Vikings goes through to the Koreans, Then the Vietnamese will be able to get some S-3’s too. the aircraft would be given both an ASW and MPA capability, with sonobuoys and acoustic detection systems.
