Tag-Team Op-Eds

Raya Eckart sent me an interesting pair of links to op-ed stories today. First, we have Ralph Peters arguing that what we have in Iraq ain't Vietnam:

Iraq another Vietnam? Hell, even Vietnam wasn't the Vietnam of left-wing baby-talk politics and campus political astrology. Our Vietnamese enemies represented a mass movement. The Iraqi terrorists represent a small, bloodthirsty movement to oppress the masses.

Then this:

In 1965 Lyndon Johnson gave a speech at Johns Hopkins University titled "Why Are We in Vietnam?" Two years later, Norman Mailer offered a somewhat different version in his book "Why We Are in Vietnam." Today, this column could be called "Why We Are Not in Vietnam."

That graf is from. . . Richard Cohen, believe it or not.

Check'em both out.
