The New Vietnam

Former U.S. Senator and Vietnam Vet Max Cleland writes a scathing open letter to the President. It’s dead on but these are my favorite bits:

Instead of learning the lessons of Vietnam, where all of the above happened, the president, the vice president, the secretary of defense and the deputy secretary of defense have gotten this country into a disaster in the desert.

The president has declared “major combat over” and sent a message to every terrorist, “Bring them on.” As a result, he has lost more people in his war than his father did in his and there is no end in sight.

Welcome to Vietnam, Mr. President. Sorry you didn’t go when you had the chance.
