The Vietnam War experience can’t tell us anything about the war in Iraq – or so it is said. If you believe that, trying looking through this lens, and you may change your mind.
Many, including Doofus's daddy's most trusted advisors forwaw this long before the first troops set foot into Iraq.
Only those who had been fooled into the belief that Saddam had some direct involvement in 9/11 by the most mendacious administration in U.S. history, and who have n't been to an intervention yet think that this debacle has made us safer.
Can we impeach the war criminals now?
