My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Vietnam?? Really?? Try Asking The Pros

USA Today has an interesting interview today with two soldiers currently serving in Iraq who were also in Vietnam. Their perspective is illuminating.

If there are parallels between Iraq and Vietnam, these graying soldiers and the other Vietnam veterans serving here offer a unique perspective. They say they are more optimistic this time: They see a clearer mission than in Vietnam, a more supportive public back home and an Iraqi population that seems to be growing friendlier toward Americans. . .

"I knew we were going to lose Vietnam the day I walked off the plane," says Miles, who returned home this month after nearly a year in Iraq. Not this time. "There's no doubt in my mind that this was the right thing to do," he says.

The looney Left can continue to bang on the drums of anti-war, anti-military protest as long as they want, but eventually reality will have to intrude. At least a little bit.
