Cutting and running
Good post from John at AMERICAblog:
I've said this before, and Bush only confirms it today. His administration thinks the lesson from Vietnam was "don't cut and run." THAT'S the lesson for these guys. If we'd only stuck it out a little longer, we'd have won in Vietnam. Huh?President George W. Bush vowed on Saturday that the United States "will not run" from Iraq as it did from Vietnam ...So we "ran" from Vietnam? Well, I guess when you get your ass kicked and the battle is hopeless, yes, you do run, and fast, unless you're a moron.
Some reporter really has to ask the Bush administration if they think it was a mistake for the US to finally withdraw from Vietnam.
