Jim Webb MIA on Iraq
WEBB: Well, the difficulty that we have right now — there are so many people trying to make a direct parallel between Vietnam and Iraq, on both sides of the issue, by the way.
You have the people who are opposed to the Iraq war saying this is just another Vietnam. You have the people who supported the Vietnam war, many of them — I supported the Vietnam war. I still support what we attempted to do in Vietnam — trying to draw direct parallels, and there are no direct parallels.
WALLACE: Let me ask you directly my question.(translation: you didn't answer it yet)
WEBB: Right, I'm getting to your question. But I need to be able to, you know, put my experiences on the table so that people can understand what I'm saying here.
Webb still doesn't answer the question. Chris Wallace asks him directly two more times, but Webb just rambles on droning away...........
(sorry, I nodded off) Then Wallace tries twice more from the other direction, using the confirmation of General Petraeus as an example, but Webb still has no answer. Alas, like all Democrats, Webb hews to the Ingsoc party line, "We have always been at war with Eurasia", and refuses to simply admit he has changed his tune. If it's not the Crusades, it's the cartoons.
