Iraq as another Vietnam? Compare election coverage then and now.
Consider the US government’s cheery assessment of Iraq’s recent election, and then read this article from the September 3, 1967 issue of the New York Times. Insert ‘Iraq’ for ‘Vietnam’ and ask: So what have we learned?
I think we’ve learned that people will believe anything they read or hear.
Oh yeah, and those who forget history are condemned to repeat it.
