old post from 360..but still worth a read.
Ssssooo I'm watching now or was it frontline. Either way it was on Pbs(and was the ONLY thing worth watching at that time). They were talking to the auther of a new book about the Iraq and Vietnam...and how much alike they are. I remember I was watching "Vietnam the 10,000 day war" . Listening to what they were tell the rest of world how they were winning the war...We just need more time,more troops,more money....we can win this! Sound familiar. We have not learn from Vietnam, and like Vietnam I doubt we are going to win. How many kids do we have to ship home in bodybags? For us to learn! And like in Vietnam who are we asking to go and fight...The poor and the working class. Because why should the rich send there kids to fight and die for "democracy"....and don't fool yoursevles it's not about "democracy". It's about lining the pockets of a few. We have no real plan for Iraq. No plans to "win the war",no plans for a time table to get out. No real plans to help Iraq to achieve "democracy" . Much like Vietnam. This is my thought about people who want war.....let them go and fight it!
