    Re: Bush's Presidency

    Why do we have to rate Bush relative to other U.S. presidents? When you get mugged on the street, do you rate the mugger compared to other muggers? Hell now, you pull out a .44 Magnum and splatter his brains and skull fragments across four city blocks! Except with Bush you'd want to shoot him in the groin first.

    The best? Only if you're high on a combination of drugs
    The worst? Only if you're high on a combination of drugs

    Good? In some regards.
    Bad? In many.

    I'd put him in the lower 3rd of US presidents, but towards the top.

    We weren't going to lose Vietnam either, but we pulled out anyway. Our bombings were screwing them so bad. The only thing that was helping them was the Cong, their army was a joke. Whenever we take losses, the public gets mad, which makes it harder to keep the effort going. Thats why I compard it to Vietnam.

    The most entertaining commentary on the quality of the Bush Presidency is Bill Maher's take on Dear Leader's Presidency:

    I never thought I'd say this, but he needs to be more like George W. Bush.

    Really? I think there are some really influential conservative speakers who have been waterboarded...Mancow Muller, was a swimmer, and got ready for the waterboarding, got totally prepared. When they started he lasted about 5 seconds before started gasping and calling for it to stop. Afterwards, he said, ".....absolutely torture." Here are some videos. The actual waterboarding starts about 2:30 or so in.

    Here's a link to Mancow. The waterboarding starts about 2:30 again.

    you seem to have some knowledge of historical warfare, i wouldn't expect you to view vietnam and Iraq in any sort of similarities.

    There are always similarities in any war. But of course, there are also differences.

    Similarities: Russian Weapons, Guerilla Tactics,

    Differences: Environment, Enemy, Reasons

    Probably the most important fact is the guerilla tactics. Vietnam was a close match because of those tactics, and we have learned for Iraq, but of course, gureilla tactics always force high casualties for the invading force.

    I could say the same for you ignoring my rebuttal

    And take a good look at those videos. If you really say it isn't torture, try it yourself, and show everyone a video.

    so how many casualties do we have in this war, how many in Vietnam? I think your position misses the mark.
