This Is Hardly Vietnam

Charles Krauthammer tries to provide a reality check for the hysterical folks out there who see Iraq as the next Vietnam:
The first George Bush once said he thought the Persian Gulf War would cure America of the Vietnam syndrome. He was wrong. There is no cure for the Vietnam syndrome. It will go away only when the baby boom generation does, dying off like the Israelites in the desert, allowing a new generation, cleansed of the memories and the guilt, to look at the world clearly once again.
Unfortunately, the baby boomers will not die for a long time and not until their demands for healthcare, drugs, and every other need they could have provided for by conservatively investing part of their income over time but instead want to steal from their children and grandchildren (under the guise of "compassionate" government) cripple the future of my generation.
