Vietnam vs. Iraq

In his speech regarding to the conflicts in Iraq, Bush made a reference to Vietnam:

“One unmistakable legacy of Vietnam is that the price of America’s withdrawal was paid by millions of innocent citizens whose agonies would add to our vocabulary new terms like ‘boat people,’ ‘re-education camps’ and ‘killing fields’.”

‘Boat people’ was not a mistake. In fact, many Vietnamese-Americans are thankful for it. Life is much better in America for sure.
