Max Cleland compares Iraq to Vietnam (and hates America)

Former U.S. Senator Max Cleland must hate America. Why else would a highly decorated soldier, who was awarded a Bronze Star and a Silver Star, compare the current Iraq War to Vietnam, of which he was a part? Could Mr. Cleland be suffering delirium as he looks at the empty space where his legs and right arm used to be? Did recent reminiscing about his tenure as head of Veterans Administration, aiding war-scarred veterans, convince him that Saddam Hussein’s iron rule was so magnanimous, that he would rather see him with the reins of Iraq and mistreating his people, rather than send our own troops to depose of such a worthless tyrant who had access to such terrible weapons of mass destruction? How could Cleland, justify not sending our military in to secure the imminent threat of Saddam’s arsenal of weapons and scientists that could have been transferred to Al Qaeda?

Tell us Max Cleland, why do you hate America?!?
