Senator Edward Kennedy Says Iraq is Bush's Vietnam

Washington, Jan 17 (Prensa Latina) US Democrat Senator Edward M. Kennedy said the bloody standoff between US occupation troops and Iraqi resistance proves that the occupation of the Arab country is the Vietnam of President George W. Bush, who continues justifying that aggression.

In an interview on CBS news, Kennedy said the situation in Iraq was a disaster and the result of blunder after blunder, another Vietnam. The senator called ridiculous Bush's latest claim that his re-election was a validation of going to war in Iraq.

Kennedy reminded that former Democrat President Lyndon Johnson easily won the 1964 elections during the Vietnam War, but didn"t seek re-election in 1968.

"Look what happened," Kennedy said. "Lyndon Johnson had to basically abdicate the presidency because of Vietnam. This is clearly George Bush"s Vietnam." Johnson is widely believed not to have sought re-election due to the drain on time, resources and his popularity resulting from failures in Vietnam.

Kennedy has been a consistent critic of the Bush administration's policy in Iraq and vocally opposed the resolution that gave the US president the green light to go into war in Iraq. The Democrat senator further added it was absolutely a mistake to go to war with Iraq, instead of following Osama bin Laden.

However, Kennedy stressed that Bush committed other mistakes after ordering the invasion of Iraq, including not having enough troops for post-war operations, disbanding the Iraqi army, having single source contracts to groups like the politically connected Halliburton and the prisoner abuse scandals at Abu Ghraib.

The Democrat Senator believes that the US went into Iraq with no long-term plan, just a day-to-day planning session.
