Iraq: Another Vietnam?
Shrub is now comparing Iraq to Vietnam. And here I thought that such comparisons were strictly forbidden by Patriot Act Provision A3X444A Article 4 Version 7 . I guess we're now on Version 8. During this short window of opportunity, I'd like to express my hearty agreement with his sentiment: Shrub's War and the Western Recolonization of Vietnam (otherwise know as the French Indo-China War or the Vietnam War) do bear some striking parallels--especially in terms of the uncanny stupidity and hubris of the politicians involved.
