Bush: Vietnam holds lesson

Asked what lessons the war in Vietnam offered for the war in Iraq, Bush's response suggested a need for patience and determination—a nod toward the U.S. decision to abandon Vietnam after a protracted and unsuccessful war there.

"We'll succeed unless we quit," Bush said.
The actual lesson to be learned from Vietnam is to not start wars on a lie, whether the lie is about the Tonkin Gulf or Weapons of Mass Destruction.
