The Challenge in Iraq

To The Economist

12 April 2004

Sir

Your leader, the Challenge in Iraq, makes some excellent points about the differences between Iraq and Vietnam. As far as the political consequences for President Bush are concerned, there is another, even more potent factor.

Nearly all the US service personnel who fought and died in Vietnam were conscripts. Those in Iraq are all volunteers.

Yours truly,

Quentin Langley
