Iraq – Vietnam Comparison: Olbermann Nails It

February 10, 2007

This video clip Olberman: Bush in Vietnam video of Keith Olberman on MSNBC is abolutely the most plain-spoken head-on powerful analysis of Iraq/Vietnam parallels that I’ve seen or read to date. Anybody with an opinion about the War in Iraq MUST watch this and/or read the transcript.

The obvious lesson Any Idiot could learn from the Vietnam War is that pulling out of an unpopular fight founded on highly suspect justifications (communist domino effect in Vietnam; militant Islam world domination in Iraq) this best course, and the sooner the better.

I wrote as much in a recent post Responding to Local Wingnuts, but Olberman really nailed it. Watch the video.


I found the link through Roxanne Walker’s blog, which lead me to, which lead me to Crooks and Liars. Thanks all.
