Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for October 05, 2008
Soldier: You see anything? Soldier: Where? Soldier: Out there - on the time horizon! Soldier: Nah. Soldier: Yo, you think McCain would really keep us here until we win? Soldier: Sounds like it... Soldier: Count on it! Mac sees Iraq as a chance to re-fight Vietnam, to show that we really can win an open-ended war regardless of cost. If we gut it out and eventually win here, it proves we could have won in Nam if we'd wanted to. And if we could have won, it means we didn't really lose, which is the same as winning! Soldier: Wow... how cool would that be, Sarge? Soldier: What? Soldier: To finally win the Vietnam War! That would rock! Soldier: It'd sure mean a lot to my parents. Soldier: Then stay frosty, young dawgs - gotta win this one first!
