Iraq as Vietnam

I seem to remember ages ago warning that eventually the "right" would turn the Vietnam / Iraq comparison on its ear and begin to build a similar myth for Iraq that developed for Vietnam in the 70s. The myth is basically the following: if we had only had the stomach and will power to (or had not been held back by the press / anti-war movement / weenie politicians) take the gloves off we could have won.

Well, it's starting to happen.

You can read my thoughts in the comments. Please add your own over at Justin's place.
