Forty Years Ago Today

It was exactly 40 years ago today that LBJ gave a State of the Union address outlining the reasons why we should stay in -- why we should escalate in -- Vietnam.

And now, thanks to Will Bunch over at Attytood, we can see a line by line comparison between that speech and the eerily similar speech given tonight by Baby Doc.

Check out the whole story and see if the parallels are as chilling to you as they are to me.

And to all of my fellow Vietnam vets who say that there are no similarities between Iraq and Vietnam: Fuck off. You are wrong.

I can't imagine any V.N. vet NOT seeing direct parallels. I mean, Jesus, must it slap us in the ass first?
