    We watched this a little bit ago - Remembering Vietnam: The Wall at 25 on the Smithsonian Channel. It made me think just what might be wrong with McCain and his obsession with the war in Iraq ... (perhaps even more so than President Bush has been). Smithsonian Channel - Remembering Vietnam: The Wall at 25 :thup:

    I think this would make sense... John McCain lost a great deal in vietnam...his youth, his physical strength, some might argue even his first marriage.

    I think, just like with Bush Jr, John McCain has something to prove.

    I think he wants to wage a war and he wants to WIN IT no matter what the cost.

    The VC complimented the NVA. Does AQI or the Sadr and Badr Brigades has similar arms?

    Do they have cross-border safe havens (think carefully before you answer that one)?

    Do they have a superpower patron?

    How are their logistical, training and monetary networks?

    Are they replacing specialists as fast as they're being lost?

    Is their operational environment expanding or contracting?

    Perhaps a serious consideration of these questions should be asked before making absurd analogies. The only similarity to Vietnam are a bunch of unwashed Marxists parading around in ridiculous costumes feeding the enemy his only strategic hope.

    None of your questions have one iota to do with if McCain is obsessed with "winning a war" ... it does not matter what war. So your questions have nothing to do with it. We all know that the war in Vietnam and Iraq are/were different. We that think this - just might not be as stupid as you are. Who knows.

    As Silence and I agree, you have your opinion we have ours.
