What's Right in Iraq

Mary Laney lays it out here. And for those who still don't understand Iraq's relationship to the war on terror:

There are politicians who are using the war to try to tilt Americans to change their minds. They continually refer to Iraq as another Vietnam. It is not Vietnam. Vietnam was a black eye for America. It was a time where America pulled out due to public opinion and then watched the slaughter of the South Vietnamese people after we left. Iraq is not Vietnam. If we pull out of Iraq, al-Qaida will follow us right back home -- to New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Doubt it? Then you have forgotten 9/11 and just what happened after America failed to respond to the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993 and failed to act when our Marine barracks, our Navy ship, and other American targets were attacked by al-Qaida.

The slaughter after our pull out in Viet Nam is proving to be a sore point for the left.

I tuned into NPR and just missed a report on the subject. But I caught the tag line. It went something like this:

You can look at different studies of the number of South Vietnamese killed after athe American pullout and get different results. But one thing is clear: the number of deaths certainly was not a million!

We all feel better now, don't we?

Okay, its Vietnam. Let's do what you say, let's pull out. Is everything going to be okay? Good, but just to be sure, if a plane manned by terrorists starts to bank towards my home can I call you? No? What do you mean, you guess you were wrong?

We all know what's up ahead. Nobody likes being occupied and occupied folks tend to fight on even in defeat. When the cost of occupation gets to high, the occupant retreats. So the US will somehow find a way to get out without loosing face, and the whole region will go up in flames. Then Hollywood will produce a never ending stream of films portraying the horrors of war in the desert, and what the US boys went through. Wanna Bet?????

Wow Mike,

that's pretty depressing.

Tell ya what. Get a beer. And then go over to CMT.Com., and check out Sarah Evans video "I could not ask for more." She's a hottie, and it's a great tune too.

After that, if your still depressed, make yourself a margarita.

Your right Dan. I am a little depressed at the moment!! But I just read that article in HUMAN EVENTS ONLINE by Throckmorton (is that kind of a name legal?), about getting depressions through sex. So now I'm really in a mess. I've been hopping a anything that moves over the last months, so it's no suprise that my spirits are low. Come to think of it - My old Granny has been suffering from deporessions for decades now. Guess I'll have to keep a close eyey on her in the future!!
