Vietnam vs. Iraq

Lots of people on the left loooove to compare our current war in Iraq to our past war in Vietnam. The left was never more influential than during the Vietnam War, and they have been trying to recapture that magic ever since. Why not try it with the Iraq War? The problem for the left, according to Victor Davis Hanson - definitely one of the smartest guys in the room - is that the differences between the two wars are numerous. However, according to Dr. Hanson, if the left gets its way and the U.S. bugs out of Iraq too soon, the aftermath of the two wars would be tragically similar.

Good Day to You, Sir
