Sliding Towards Hanoi
Bush gave a speech yesterday at a VFW in St. Louis. In the speech he spoke of the withdrawal from Vietnam and the devastation that ensued to the Vietnamese and Cambodians and to America's image (both moral and its ability to project power). I think one can draw this Analogy between Vietnam and Iraq, but it is ironic that the President would do so because the reason that this aspect of the analogy is apt is that all other aspects of the analogy are apt as well.
