Bush Administration Wants Us to Think of Vietnam Now?

Vietnamese Leader to Meet With Bush Washington Post link

Whose idea was this? What a damned good idea to bring up the memories of Vietnam right now. Which genius in the white house thought this would be a positive move. Now, when the Iraq war is looking like the ugly stepsister of the war in Vietnam, along with all its hideous memories, might not be the best time to put that war back in the spotlight. Someone must have had a scheduling problem. Why not invite all the amputees from the Vietnam war to the white house too? I would think that the last damned thing this administration would want to do now is to remind the country of the last time we went into a war and came out with nothing to show for it but dead and wounded American soldiers. Let’s see--what else does this era and the Vietnam era have in common?
