Condemned to repeat it... 

Great stuff from Max Cleland on the eerie and awful parallels between Iraq and VietNam here (via Atrios):

I like the final cheap shot 'cause that's the kind of artist I am:

Welcome to Vietnam, Mr. President. Sorry you didn't go when you had the chance.

But there's much of the wisdom that comes from experience in Cleland's article as well. This, for example:

If you want to know what is really going on in the war, ask the troops on the ground.

The farmer, of course, did exactly this earlier today, posting the letter from Tim Predmore to his hometown paper.

Read the whole thing.
