GOP Senator says Iraq looking like Vietnam

A leading Republican senator and prospective presidential candidate said Sunday that the war in Iraq has destabilized the Middle East and is looking more like the Vietnam conflict from a generation ago.

Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel, who received two Purple Hearts and other military honors for his service in Vietnam, reiterated his position that the United States needs to develop a strategy to leave Iraq.

Where are the Democrats on this? Still too timid to oppose the war for fear of offending someone, that’s where. Pathetic.

Meanwhile, Cindy Sheehan is front page everywhere and Bush’s job approval ratings have dropped to a new low, all of which should give Dems a clue that opposing the war could be a politically savvy thing to do, however this would require a vertebrae or two.
