Hitch on Iraq and Vietnam
By Maimon Schwarzschild

Hitch has it right on Iraq -- and from the point of view of someone (i.e. Hitch) who was vehemently against (the American-South Vietnamese side in) the Vietnam war, and who, to put it as gently as possible, had and perhaps still has a far more sympathetic view of the Communists in Vietnam, and not only in Vietnam, than you or I might think remotely justifiable.
