Presidential candidate Mitt Romney is talking tough about arming the Syrian rebels. One word comes to mind: Vietnam. Remember how tough our country looked then. Remember the pictures in Life magazine of children, badly burned, escaping down a road.

See and feel that long, black wall in Washington, D.C. Feel the 55,000 names and let your hand float over their chiseled edges.

Perhaps leading is remembering.
