Ken Jones Presents
Is Iraq Another Vietnam -- Or Not?

Quad 360, SJU

Forty years ago a president found himself losing support as the American public grew tired of an unpopular war. Today, many people, including Vietnam veterans like Chuck Hagel and Jim Webb, draw on that prior experience as they assess our current situation in Iraq. Are there meaningful parallels? Does drawing an analogy between Vietnam and Iraq provide beneficial insights or obscure important differences? Join Ken Jones (History) for a discussion of these questions.
