Top Ten Mistakes

If you haven't done so already, I highly recommend that you read Ivan Eland's Top Ten Mistakes the Bush Administration Is Repeating from Vietnam.

Of course, Bush is fortunate in one respect. Unlike during the Vietnam War, today the USA does not have a draft. This is the biggest reason the anti-war movement barely exists; both young people and their parents know that they won't be drafted. In other words, there isn't a lot of self-interest in stopping the war, or in making it priority #1.

In that sense, the President and his neo-con and Religious Right backers are lucky.
