Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld calls (the daily killing of U.S. Soldiers in Iraq) the "untidy" aftermath of regime change. If it was his kids or Bush's daughters or Cheny's kids dying would he think it was "untidy"?
Rising U.S. Death Toll In Iraq Spurs Concern
9 Soldiers Killed in Attacks This Month

Portions of article that echo General Westmoreland's "light at the end of the tunnel" and other Vietnam war propaganda:
South Vietnamese propaganda picked up by U.S.: V.C./NVA as "bandits"
'U.S. military commanders attribute the attacks that have killed 16 American troops since May 1 to "rogue" elements and "remnants" of Hussein's forces -- part of what Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld calls the "untidy" aftermath of regime change.'
1964 propaganda: the VC/NVA "unmotivated" and Chinese/Russian "mercenaries" fighting in their place.
'Maj. Gen. Ray Odierno, commander of the Army's 4th Infantry Division, said his troops battle "almost daily" with Baath Party loyalists, militant Islamic fundamentalists and Iraqis "who are poor and are being paid to attack U.S. forces." Interrogations of Iraqis who have tried to kill Americans have revealed payments to anti-American mercenaries, he said.'
Westmoreland (1967) we got them whipped and I can see the "light at the end of the tunnel", Westmoreland replaced 1968, 1975 major combat ends in Viet Nam we didn't win.
'"Aggressive U.S. tactics have forced Iraqis to attack more often, Odierno told reporters by teleconference from Baghdad. Yet he believes the capture of Iraqi suspects and seizure of millions of dollars has weakened the opposition groups, which he called increasingly desperate."'
more "light at the end of the tunnel"
'The attacks so far, Odierno said, are "militarily insignificant." He described them as "very small" and "very random." He said they are having "no impact on the way we conduct business on a day-to-day basis in Iraq" and asserted that the attackers themselves are becoming less organized.'
And finally a quote from Gen. W.Westmoreland himself that is relevant:
"Vietnam was the first war ever fought without any censorship. Without censorship, things can get terribly confused in the public mind."
Yeah wouldn't want the public to be confused with the facts, well Bush has made sure that won't happen for most of the country!
