    More accurately, we were essentially out of Vietnam by end of 1972 and the S. Vietnamese government, like the Iraqi government, continued to survive.  We intervened by bombing Hanoi at the end of 1972, and sent Marines back in at the end for evacuation.

    If some other group actually takes Baghdad, then you can make comparisons to Vietnam post-1975.

    Cynicism is what passes for insight among the mediocre.
