The ain't your father's war

Here's Jonah Goldberg reminding us yet again, as if we needed such a reminder, that the Vietnam war is over, and that the only similarities between this war and Vietnam are (1) that they are both wars and (2) that the liberal media opposed (and opposes) both. With regard to that last point, Goldberg has this funny rumination:

Since the beginning of the second Iraq war, comparisons, insinuations, allusions to Vietnam have been a near-daily occurrence. Literally thousands upon thousands of articles and editorials make the analogy as though it were actually a novel insight. You get the sense that Earth could be invaded by Klingons and some editorialist would hear "echoes of Vietnam" amid their disruptor blasts.
