War In Iraq - Another Vietnam?
The Bush administration is forming a new office whose primary job is to provide false information to the public about their war efforts. This should ring familiar to some of you, at least the ones who know anything about the Vietnam war. For those of you who are too young to remember, the reason that the US got into the war was because the Johnson administration told the American public that a US ship was attacked in neutral waters. The Johnson administration in fact, lied. The ship that was attacked was in Vietnam territory, a distinction that could change public opinion about going to war. Now the current administration wants to lie to you. Would there be as much support for a war in Iraq if we knew, for example, that the strongest weapon Iraq has is a super soaker? I, for one, do not want to lose any fellow Americans without knowing that there is just cause. Haven't enough mothers suffered?
