By comparing Iraq to Vietnam, Bush shot himself in the foot, as chronicled by many commentators, including this WP op-ed. Bush would have had other, poorer, less educated, less beautiful people fight on for years in Vietnam, while he partied during his ignored National Guard service. At least we tried, putting at least 500,000 troops in Vietnam for a while. Why doesn’t Bush try that in Iraq? He’s afraid to. But he’ll probably do his best to see that the career military gets blamed for losing another war that he tried valiently to win. He’ll blame the military for not fighting hard enough and not supporting him enough.
