Iraq as Vietnam

I think Victor Davis Hanson has the best reply to Senator Kennedy's claim that Iraq is Bush's Vietnam.
If there is any similarity between Vietnam and the current war, it is not 1963, when his late brother convinced us to commit troops to stop Communist aggression. A better year for comparison is 1974, when Kennedy and other senators began to cut off funding for air support promised to enforce the Paris peace accords, resulting in the collapse of South Vietnam, mass murder in Southeast Asia, and over a million boat people, with more still sent to the Communist reeducation camps.
At least Kennedy is in the minority today.
