Subject: Collapse of Iraq immenient?


South Vietnam fell 763 days after the U.S. withdrew from SVN (29 Mar 1973 - 30 Apr 1975). With the fall of Saigon in 1975, the Vietnam War was been branded a "Defeat".

As of today, it has been 907 days since 18 Dec 2011 when U.S. military withdrew from Iraq, and the country has not yet fallen to Terrorists/fanatic forces. As you probably know, terrorist forces are on the verge of marching on Baghdad Iraq. If Iraq falls, will the Iraq War be considered a "Defeat" for the U.S.?

The United States left the defense of both South Vietnam and Iraq in the hands of those two countries. A country unwilling to fight for its own freedom will not long survive. When will our country understand that point, and not brand a war a Defeat when such a country collapses years after our military have returned home?
