Phillip Adams:

Like Vietnam, the Iraq war was launched with presidential lies. Like Vietnam, the Iraq war descended into a moral and military quagmire. And if Iraq seems to be less of a stuff-up, consider this fact: it’s taken just three years in Iraq for US deaths to equal the body count after six years in Vietnam.

Consider this fact, Phillip:

The death rate of American troops in Vietnam was 5.6 times that observed in Iraq.
