Kennedy says Iraq is ‘Bush’s Vietnam’. But, if Bush=Hitler, surely it’s his Eastern Front? That can’t be, of course, because Kabul was supposed to be America’s Stalingrad—as was, er, Baghdad. At least we can be sure that Abu Ghraib is Iraq’s My Lai—as long as it’s not true that September 11 2001 was the new September 11 1973 which would make Iraq the new Chile. This would mean that Saddam=Allende and Allawi=Pinochet. In which case, after the elections, we have to arrest Ayad Allawi next time he visits Britain.
