How did they greet him at the airport though?!? Were there balloons, a bunch of people laying in a heart shape that could be seen when he was coming in for a landing? Good god, were his feelings taken adequately into consideration!!!?

The first? In a way, I guess. Nixon certainly “visited” Laos by proxy.

Whatever happens, Obama will be an excellent ex.

Wait! I know that face!

I wanted to write something similar, but with a different hook

For so long the United States has been so big, so powerful that we felt that we could afford not to know about a country like Laos.
bombing is fine without knowledge?
