With George W. Bush visiting Vietnam, the media is loving comparing the war in Iraq to the Vietnam War. But the mainstream media seems to have left their history books at home...because once again, the Vietnam War has nothing in common with the war in Iraq. Let's break down their reasoning.

The Vietnam War lasted for decades...with its beginnings going all the way back to the 1940's and the 1950's. We've been in Iraq just under 4 years. The enemy in Vietnam was being supplied by a superpower...the Soviet Union. The enemy in Iraq is being supplied by Iran and Syria and assorted Islamic thugs from various terrorist organizations.

It's just not the same. Comparing Iraq to Vietnam would be like comparing World War II to the invasion of Panama. There is no comparison. But don't tell that to the media and the Democrats. They know Vietnam is considered our greatest military failure of the 20th century. And just like with the Vietnam War, Democrats want to cut off the funding for Iraq too.

Oh..and it goes without saying: we lost the Vietnam War, but we won in Iraq. The only problem in Iraq right now is getting things to the point where they are stable enough that we can leave. However, such is the mainstream media's hatred of George Bush and the United States Military...they can't help but live out their Vietnam fantasy as much as possible. The fact that Bush is in Vietnam itself this week only serves to feed the flames.
