Iraq is nothing like vietnam.Me:
You are right, Iraq is even less popular than Vietnam. Did you read the bloomberg article that said, "Three years into major combat in Vietnam, 28,500 U.S. service members had perished, millions of families were anxious about the military draft and antiwar protests had spread to dozens of college campuses.
Today, at the same juncture in the Iraq war, about 2,400 American soldiers have died, the U.S. military consists entirely of volunteers and public dissent is sporadic.
There's one other difference: The war in Iraq is more unpopular than was the Vietnam conflict at this stage, polls show.
More Americans -- 57 percent -- say sending troops to Iraq was a mistake than the 48 percent who called Vietnam an error in April 1968, polls by the Gallup Organization show.Wingnut:
No I had not heard that. But so what? I don't trust that leftwing outfit, "Bloomberg". It sounds jewish.
