Ted Kennedy has declared the American mission in Iraq "George Bush's Vietnam." The Senator has been dutifully echoed by a bevy of Liberal journalists, reporters and pundits, who always seem most exultant when entertaining bad news for the United States of America, without much regard for the facts, but with a flush of excitement for the good old war protest/free love/pot party days of their youth.
If there is any genuine similarity between Vietnam and Iraq it is the attitude of the American Left. Liberals then and now are offended by the projection of American military power to advance American interests, and sympathize with America's enemies.
Another Vietnam? Not on the ground in Iraq, where the United States and its Allies have liberated 25 million oppressed people from a decades-long tyranny of stunning brutality, but surely on the American Left, where Ted Kennedy and his ilk still consider America to be the problem, not the solution.
