Bush Makes An Absurd Comparison With Iraq And Vietnam

Today Bush offered an absurd comparison with Iraq and Vietnam if the U.S. withdrawals too quickly. Besides no one from from the Bush family serving in either Iraq or Vietnam, the comparison is absurd based on the threat. Both are a form of civil war, except that the Shiite dominated government of Nouri al-Maliki that the U.S. supports is the problem.

If a bloodbath takes place after the U.S. withdrawals from Iraq, then it will be from this government that the U.S. is supporting that fails to stop the sectarian violence against the Sunni community and fails to prevent the ongoing Sunni violence as well is the problem. If the uncooperative government in Iraq is the roadblock to peace in Iraq, then maybe the U.S. should have prevented such a government from taking power in a nation not yet ready for democracy.
