I read an article in the paper the other day. Vietnam, that little country we nearly bombed into extinction is now a popular tourist destination and is building a high speed train from Hanoi to Ho Chi Men city at a cost of 50 billion dollars.
The United States, supposedly the most powerful nation on the face of the earth wants to rebuild its rail system, highways, and airport runways. Price tag? 50 billion dollars. But the present thought is it's too expensive.
Vietnam prepares for the future. The United States isn't so sure about the future.
