Vietnam, Iraq, Bush, Nixon

What did America gain by fighting in Vietnam? Nothing. Vietnam was a stupid war regardless of whether or not the "cause" was noble. John Kerry deserves credit for having the courage to both fight in Vietnam and fight against the stupidity of the war itself.

We should have learned from Vietnam that it's not a good idea to fight for a people's freedom when those people are not motivated to fight for their own freedom.

Iraq is a stupid war just like Vietnam was a stupid war and Americans are dying for nothing but at least in Vietnam, presidents Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon didn't tell lies about our motivation for fighting.

Bush is like Nixon because he cares not for the ethics of how he achieves his goals but simply believes that ends justify means. The Bush regime is willing to lie about WMD because it believes the end result will justify the lies. The Bush regime is willing to undermine the Constitution and sacrifice individual liberties because it believes turning America into a christian nation will justify destroying American values.

Bush is Nixon with religion instead of brains.

Iraq is Vietnam with religion instead of communism.
