FYI This time I was joking.

No I have no idea what weed you are talking about. Take a picture and post it.

I bet it's a greenbrier of some kind that you are describing. A brush-rate of Roundup and a good surfactant will work if there is big clump of it with lots of leaves. Usually that is not the case. It likes to grow up right in the middle of hedges.

Is this it?

Interesting way of delivering a herbicide in that link

Keith I believe this is it. The leaves are different on ones I've seen but the link does state that. Thanks. Anytime I need an obscure weed I'd you def know what it is!

Thank you for pointing out the delivery method. I am not sure I will ever use it, but it is interesting. I find Garlon 4 does a great job using the stump cut method on controlling vining plant. My method is to use a new PVC glue can with lid dabber to store and use Garlon 4. I just cut the vine and then open the can to use the lid dabber to paint the stern end. You can purchase the brand new empty cans at most all irrigation supply houses.
