The Westmoreland mind-set
Interesting parallels between the bigot Westy and the bigot Chimpy;

By Derrick Z. Jackson, Globe Columnist | July 20, 2005

NONE OF THE many newspaper obituaries about General William Westmoreland exhumed one of the most important things he ever said:

''The Oriental doesn't put the same high price on life as does a Westerner. Life is plentiful. Life is cheap in the Orient."

BUSH said:

''We're dealing with an enemy that has no conscience," Bush said on the campaign trail last year. ''Today, if you noticed, there was a car bomb near a school. These people are brutal. They -- they're the exact opposite of Americans. We value life and human dignity. They don't care about life and human dignity. We believe in freedom. They have an ideology of hate. And they're tough, but not as tough as America."

1. Yeah ...
I saw on the Today Show the morning after he died, a clip of him saying something like, "We are making great progress in Vietnam ... We ARE winning".

I thought to myself ... Jesus Christ ... this is the play book that chimpy has been using.

Another thing that makes Iraq more and more like Vietnam.

Cheers
