3. Let me put it in movie terms
Vietnam was an absolute slaughter, and our men were poorly prepared for it. The VC were extremely skilled guerrilla-style fighters fighting on their own turf, and blew up ambushes on American soldiers like nothing we'd ever seen before or have since. Iraq isn't quite that bad yet, but I'm sure it will get there by summer 2007 if we entrench any deeper, and Iran and Syria get into it.

Iraq = typical cowboys and Indians movie gunfight scene
Vietnam = scene in "Aliens" where Gorman's and Apone's crew first meet the aliens

*Big* difference
The Daily Show as a comic strip
