Did it take "a year or two" for things to "settle down" in Vietnam? I'm getting nervous that Republicans are buying the bullshit being spewed by Bush. The real issue in Vietnam is that we were fighting a proxy war without attacking the source. Until Bush rolls up his sleeves and takes out Iran and Syria, Iraq will continue to be a target for foreign infiltrators. This isn't the War on Terror he promised us. It's time to get to work.

Look up the term "Operational Overreach". Your heart is in the right place, your strategy is messed up. We did not invade Japan a year after Pearl Harbor. We had to build to the point we could do it. Iraq is a step, not an end point. Think of it as this war's equivalent of the invasion of Italy.
