Don't like how much off his rocker GW Bush is?
He went on denying that Iraq was like Vietnam, and now, he says Iraq is like Vietnam. The analogy now suits his purpose.
Bush Iraq War analogy strikes a nerve in Vietnam
In a speech to U.S. war veterans on Wednesday, Bush invoked the Vietnam War, saying that widespread death and chaos would envelop Iraq if the U.S. troops left too quickly, as he said happened when the U.S. pulled out of Vietnam three decades ago.
Oddly, the fother mucker must not have believed that during the Vietnam years because he decided to skip his service for Vietnam.
Someone should ask him, if he had to do it all over again, would he go to Vietnam to fight for our freedom?
And you got to love how Mr. Bash tried to reappropriate history only to have his ass handed back to him by the Vietnamese:
But people in Vietnam, where opposition to the U.S. intervention in Iraq is strong, said Thursday that Bush had drawn the wrong conclusions from the Southeast Asian conflict.
"Doesn't he realize that if the U.S. had stayed in Vietnam longer, they would have killed more people?" said Vu Huy Trieu of Hanoi, a veteran who fought against the U.S. troops in Vietnam. "Nobody regrets that the Vietnam War wasn't prolonged except Bush."
Vietnam's official government spokesman offered a more measured response during a regular media briefing Thursday.
"With regard to the American war in Vietnam, everyone knows that we fought to defend our country and that this was a righteous war of the Vietnamese people," said Foreign Ministry spokesman Le Dung. "And we all know that the war caused tremendous suffering and losses to the Vietnamese people."
Dung said Vietnam hoped that the Iraq conflict would be resolved "very soon, in an orderly way, and that the Iraqi people will do their best to rebuild their country."
