Our war in Iraq   2003 – 11

After starting one war inAfghanistan, Bush and the far right started another in Iraq, which they were told could turn into a quagmire like Vietnam.   After a brilliant victory, we didn’t have enough troops to stop five weeks of looting, but enough to protect the oil.  We disbanded the Iraqi army when needed the most.  We said we wouldn’t occupy the country.  We didn’t expect so many insurgents to fight us.  We didn’t find out why they were so motivated – like Vietnam.  We kept training the Iraqi army which never did the job, like Vietnam.  We’ve been trying to do the fighting for them – like Vietnam.  We pushed democratic reforms, like Vietnam; and the resulting the government hasn’t worked, like Vietnam.  We’re rebuildingIraq, like Vietnam, though it’s going up in smoke.  Our government is too secretive aboutall this – like Vietnam.
