Bush was allegedly in a coke hole for much of the Vietnam War, a war he "supported" but assiduously avoided, like most of the cronies and scumbags who make up his vile regime. Bush thinks other people should fight wars. Personally, he's a physical coward.
The 'NY Times' offers a look at how actual historians are looking at Bush's highly dubious claims that Vietnam’s lessons provide a reason for persevering in Iraq, rather than for leaving any time soon.
"The American withdrawal from Vietnam is widely remembered as an ignominious end to a misguided war — but one with few negative repercussions for the United States and its allies. By the time these Americans were lifted off a roof in Saigon in 1975, few American combat forces were left in Vietnam. Now, in urging Americans to stay the course in Iraq, President Bush is challenging that historical memory."
Kudos to 'DownWithTyranny'
