  •  Um .. OK (none)
    Further, 'not supporting the insurgents' does not mean 'supporting the U.S. occupation'.  Further still, any support of Iraqis for the U.S. occupation, it would seem to me, is tenuous at best - akin to my support for Kerry as the lesser of two evils in this last election.

    Where did I say "not supporting the insurgents" equated to "supporting the U.S. occupation"?

    I don't think the Iraqis support the U.S. occupation any more than they support the insurgents .. maybe less.  Please reread my comment.  I am just saying that I don't think you can equate Vietnam with Iraq in terms of Viet Cong vs. Iraqi insurgents.
