Bush talks Iraq in Vietnam
It’s followed by this line…
President Bush, in Vietnam, said today that the United States’ unsuccessful war there three decades ago offered lessons for the American-led struggle in Iraq. “We’ll succeed unless we quit,” Bush said shortly after arriving in the one-time war capital, Hanoi.
Ironic, no? The Vietnam war may offer lessons, but apparently he didn’t bother learning them. At least he was paying attention… sort of.
“Laura and I were talking about how amazing it is that we’re here in Vietnam,” the president said.
The rest of us still find it amazing that you’re there in the White House.
The American people “want to know if we have a plan for success. I assured John that any reposition of troops — if that’s what we do — will be done with John and his government. But I assured him, we’re not leaving until this job is done, until Iraq can sustain and defend itself.”
Wait. Last I heard, we never had a policy of “Stay The Course”. Who the hell is in charge of getting out the memos? How am I supposed to remember if we’re at war with Oceana, IF I CAN’T GET THE MEMOS?????
