The Ghost of Vietnam Haunts the Left and Right Over Iraq

I don’t know about you, but for years, I’ve been secretly longing for that Time Life moment post World War II; the kiss of a returning soldier, the final exhale of an exhausted nation. I can’t say that I pictured a happy America, but I had imagined a unified America. But we aren't going to get that moment, because there was a war in between WWII and Iraq. We're scared. Not only have we’ve been lied to rather recently (WMD), but we're battling with our national scars from our defeat in Vietnam.
