A war is always fought for a purpose.
The Vietnam War was fought for an ideal, preserving Democracy against Communism in another Asian country in the prime-time of the Cold War (btw, which
was supposedly a war nobody could win). With all due respect Vietnam was just another battlefield within a more global war, BUT NO HIDDEN AGENDAS (or
too many lies). America was defeated and failed miserably in this Battle. The Vietnamese communists won, many holding another belief or ideal did
suffer in the short-term, but was it that bad for the whole country civilians who only cared about peace and having a simple life for the longer term?
Facts are in the long-term Vietnam developed themselves nicely, the pace is increasing following the China concept, all for the better.
The Iraq War is being fought for SUPPOSED DEFENSE and ENERGY CONTROL.
Americans did a pre-emptive strike a Nation/Region which is now proven they WRONGLY accused the country of having WMD. Either the government making
the call to go into War for this WMD threat reason ALREADY KNEW OR NOT if there were WMD is for another time, I just want to say they MOST LIKELY KNEW
there weren't any. So IF that is the case, THEN it would mean only the latter of ENERGY CONTROL is the only reason for the Iraq War.
Americans are Occupying the country for her Oil resources, anyone else believing something else is so out of this world. So this reasons itself gives
America enough reasons to stay in Iraq, NO MATTER how many extra life losses. The Monetary costs apparently do not wage up the Gains in controlling
these oil fields. This energy control is creepily covered in the very convenient excuse of Terrorism. So simply count on that as long as this Enrgy
Control is still needed America will not pull back, no matter who will become the next president.
I just want to say it is just amazing he did dare to use Vietnam as a comparison where America did fought for an acceptable purpose...
Actually whatever president Bush is telling the public, I would advise anyone to discount it very much and do your own due diligence before believing
a word he is saying, or making up an opinion.
