The Real Equivalent

Here is a link to a fascinating article about what historical conflict is closer to resembling the Iraq war.

Some excerpts:

"Journalists constantly compare the war in Iraq to the Vietnam War. This may be because Vietnam is the only war with which they are familiar, the study of military history not being foremost on the agenda of most scribes. More likely it's because it suits their ideological purposes to compare Iraq to the only war America has ever lost."

This can be verified by a member of that media, ABC News reporter Terry Moran.

On Hugh Hewitt's radio show, Moran said "There is, Hugh, I agree with you, a deep anti-military bias in the media. One that begins from the premise that the military must be lying, and that American projection of power around the world must be wrong. I think that that is a hangover from Vietnam, and I think it's very dangerous,"

Another excerpt fro the Post-Gazette article:

"Those who have studied military history think a more apt historical parallel is with the battle of Okinawa, which concluded 60 years ago this month."

That popping sound you just heard was thousands of liberals sticking their fingers in their ears......
