Iraq Is Another Vietnam? It’s Not Even Close.

Perhaps it’s because so many left-wingers view the war protests in the sixties as the “glory days” of the liberal movement or because like Ted Rall[1], they believe that…

“Losing to Third Worlders in PJs led Americans to decades of relative humility, self-examination and taking the moral high ground in conflicts such as Haiti and Kosovo.”

…but the left in this country is fixated on Vietnam.

Remember the Gulf War? I was in college back then and I had a liberal professor who told us to prepare for 100,000 casualties and a draft[2]. Know why? Because that’s what war was like. Remember Vietnam! (Cont)[3]
