  1. This is one of those things that I point out whenever some poser hippie freak tries to compare Iraq to the Vietnam war.

    The big difference between Iraq and Vietnam is that most of our Soldiers actually care for and sympathize with the citizens of Iraq.

    Contrasted to the Vietnam war, where most soldiers could care less about the Vietnamese… I’m not saying that all soldiers were that way in Vietnam, but a large enough number of them were to where it started affected troop morale. Ultimately leading to a defeatist attitude.

    As long as our soldiers have a soft spot in their hearts for the citizens of Iraq, America will win, no matter what!

    Cheers

    Doc, there are so many differences between the two wars. Some just refuse to open their eyes.

    One thing I can say with complete confidence; Our Military is made up of some of the best men and women in the world!
