    to the post above, making a similar point.

    The one respect in which Iraq does not parallel the Vietnam War:  we lose more than face and credibility by pulling out.  Cheney's after the big prize, and he isn't going to let Iraqis self-determine him out of it.

    •  I think it's more than Cheney (none)
      I've read here that these war-mongerings go back to Bush owing some oil company that bought out and merged with his bankrupt oil-drilling affair. This oil conlomerate "called in" a favor, and lo-and-behold, we start a war in Iraq. If I know what I'm talking about, this means Bush actually puts influence into this administration. Which, if you're like me, it's hard to fathom the coked-out chimp putting together two coherent syllables, much less exerting his will on the dark overlord and minions.
