<b>A familiar scenario</b>

EDITOR: I have seen this picture before.

First: Advisers hit the ground.

Second: A coup overthrowing Diem. Oh, excuse me, I think this time it is al-Maliki, or someone like that.

Three: Hit the rewind button.

Mr. and Mrs. North America and all the ships at sea: Get the body bags ready — your sons and daughters will be coming home sooner than expected.

Thank God the American foreign policy of perpetual war for perpetual peace is back on track.
