Mr Bush accidentally gets it right
[Vietnam] was our unjust war on their soil. The people are at peace because we lost that war. Are these really the truths you want to admit about Iraq?

Huynh Tuyet, 71, a North Vietnamese veteran who had his hand blown off fighting the Americans, recalled his own lesson. "Even though the Americans were more powerful with all their massive weapons, the main factor in war is the people," he said. "The Vietnamese people were very determined. We would not give up. That's why we won."
Guerrilla warfare and 4GW (read William Lind for more on that): lessons for freedom-fighters today.
