If It Walks Like a Duck...

How many times were anti Iraq war protesters dismissed because the Bushies told us "Iraq is not another Vietnam"? Well, this article by Douglass K. Daniel reveals some eerie similarities between the two. Let's pray that we don't see helicopters lifting off the American embassy roof, but maybe it will mean the end of pro-war presidents for awhile.

The Sept. 22 edition of USATODAY had a double-truck ad in the front section. The left page featured photos of Donald Rumsfeld, President Bush, Vice President Cheney and Secretary of State/National Security Adviser Condoleeza Rice, each with a list of statements made in the last three years that have proven to be false -- under the headline "They Lied."

The right page had a listing of several hundred names of military personnel, printed in miniature type, under the headline "They Died."

It was dramatic and effective. One colleague, a Vietnam combat veteran, said it was just like what they said during Vietnam.
