Vietnam revisited...

This past weekend I found myself shutting out all the media discussion of "the surge" in troops that Bush is planning for Iraq. It's all so depressing...and it's reminiscent of LBJ and Vietnam.

What I find so disappointing is that Bush is taking his advice from the same NeoCons who got us into this war in the first place. In my view, this war represents one of the worst foreign policy decisions in the history of the United States. The people who promoted this war, despite the opposition of people around the world, should be discredited at this stage.

In the meantime, there is not much any of us can do. On this issue Bush seems to have tuned out the American people a long time ago.
