AL QAEDA DOIESN'T GET THE SAME COURTESY DEMOCRATS SHOWED NORTH VIETNAM?:

Bush takes the fight to Democrats on Iraq war (Doyle McManus and Johanna Neuman, April 5, 2007, LA Times)

Denouncing Democrats from coast to coast for trying to limit his freedom of action in Iraq, President Bush is betting -- as he often has -- that when it comes to national security, confrontation works better than conciliation. [...]

In Washington, Republicans and Democrats expect that the president will win this battle in the short run; that after weeks or months of debate, Congress will eventually provide billions of dollars for the war in Iraq with only mild conditions attached.

"Ultimately, politically, we have to give him [the] money," Rep. Charles B. Rangel (D-N.Y.), chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, predicted in an interview on NBC this week.
