Here's a piece by Fred Barnes that describes in more detail why Webb is right to shun the Vietnam comparisons.

"The war was the hard part. The hard part was putting together a coalition, getting 300,000 troops over there and all their equipment and winning. And it gets easier. I mean, setting up a democracy is hard, but it is not as hard as winning a war."
