Well, now when you state that, what fact do you base it on other than Iraq being a "quagmire"? You do realize that at the current rate of U.S
casualties, we'd have to be there for forty years before it reached the proportions of Vietnam... You do realize that, don't you?
When people make this comment, as they continuously do, I have to wonder upon what information they are basing this opinion on.
While I can't say that I agree with the timing of the Iraq conflict,I think that this was an inevitability. Sooner or later,Iraq was going to come
into play in the "war against terrorism."
This was way off topic, but I had to address your assertion that "Iraq is the new Vietnam."
