Isn't this Viet Nam all over again...the war of propaganda, the same clumsy operations, the same flimsy results? The same slender interface between Intelligence ops and news?

[The] positive function [of propaganda] is to create confidence that our political authority is strong and durable. J. M. Coetzee, Dusklands

"Isn't this Viet Nam all over again...the war of propaganda, the same clumsy operations, the same flimsy results? The same slender interface between Intelligence ops and news?"

Neocons didn't serve in the military but were, never-the-less, intellectually affected by the then current view that the Viet-Nam war could have been "won" by a different strategy- the strategy we are now using in Iraq!
That is why this quote is so appropriate and correct.

No Preference

Isn't this Viet Nam all over again
