The American Left is howling with outrage. President Bush has used the Vietnam analogy against the Left's demand for immediate withdrawal from Iraq. The President has hit them where it hurts the most. Forcing America's withdrawal from Vietnam was the Left's sacred moment, their equivalent of the French Revolution. They thought they owned the story of the Vietnam War, its termination, and its aftermath. Take their delusions, their deluded history, from them and the Left is deprived of most of its remaining ideology (as their Marxism long ago lost credibility).
