Now to be fair, he did choose to compare the two wars to a group of Vietnam vets that most likely are amongst those forgotten, neglected, deprived and unsuccessfully hidden from society. I figure the hope was that, by now, they are so damaged and neglected that they may not have even noticed the attempt. I mean, he's preachin' to the choir, right?
So, to sum up, he made his argument that we can't just leave Iraq because we would risk repeating the mistakes of Vietnam. Now that that has been said, I wonder how he would explain this brilliant decision of the Pentagon?
Reckon the media will be so good reporting this today? Doubt it.
