The Bush Administration has had some bright, shiny new ideas. One of these is to “win the hearts and minds” of the Iraqis.
I keep forgetting that it has been almost forty years since that exact same novel strategy was the one we were using in Vietnam.
Our exit strategy in Vietnam was called “Vietnamization.” That meant substituting South Vietnamese soldiers for American soldiers.
The Bush Administration is going to use Iraqi troops instead of American troops.
As Joe Sobran said, if you remember things, it makes you feel very lonely.
