Sen. Ted Kennedy, Democrat of Massachusetts

E-mail Print PDF

In a recent speech, reported on his website, the Senator made the following statement about Vietnam and our President Bush, "There was no military solution to that war but we kept trying to find one anyway. In the end, 58,000 Americans died in the search for it. Echoes of that disaster are all around us today. Iraq is George Bush's Vietnam." The Gazette wants to know how 3,000+ deaths can be compared logically to 58,000? Do the math, Vietnam was almost 20 times larger than Iraq, when using the Senator's own numbers. Why doesn't the media ever point out these facts? The reason is that they whiping us into another Vietnam like "surrender frenzy." Shame, shame, shame!
