I'm sure you've all heard some of the WWII/Iraq analogy

If you're talking about the defetist, anti-American (Bush) stance, it's a little flawed.

I just had time to look at this article in the American Thinker, and saw the same flaw I'd heard from Rush and others.

Q. “Since there are always root causes for bellicosity, what’s the root cause of Japan’s attack?”

A. Americans have never bothered to learn Japanese language, culture, and history. So we don’t understand Japan’s complaints against us. There would never have been a Pearl Harbor attack if we had been nicer to Japanese immigrants.

Q. “What’s the root cause for Adolf Hitler’s and Nazi Germany’s animosity towards America?”

A. Jews have disproportionate influence in the current American administration. That’s why President Franklin Delano Roosevelt supports Zionism and the idea of a Jewish state in the Middle East. That’s also why Roosevelt is such a lackey of the British, who persist in standing in the way of Germany’s legitimate need for lebensraum in Poland and in other parts of Eastern Europe.

Not only that. We should be sending a team to Switzerland to talk to Hitler’s emissaries and find a way to stop this totally unnecessary war right now.

Q. “But if we continue to fight, how can do so if we don’t know how much the war is is going to cost us?”

A. We’re only now beginning to emerge from the Depression. In fact, our 1941 deficit equals 4.3 percent of our GDP. So how can Congress give Roosevelt a blank check? The government’s first responsibility is to respond not to unimportant foreign threats, but to urgent domestic needs like health care.

Q. “How can we fight without a plan telling us exactly when and how the war will end?”

A. It’s not acceptable for Roosevelt to prattle that the war will be long and hard, and will end only when we’re victorious. That kind of rhetoric may be suitable for an aging imperialist like Prime Minister Winston Churchill, who keeps telling the British people that their aim must be “victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival.” But there’s no room for such talk in liberal America.

Q. “We’re taking very heavy losses. An average of 215 American soldiers and sailors are dying every day in a war we shouldn’t have let ourselves get into. Isn’t it obvious that the Axis powers are going to win this war, and that we’re going to lose it?”

A. Japan and Germany are sinking Allied vessels at a faster rate than they can be replaced. The Philippines, Singapore, the Dutch East Indies, Poland, France, Belgium, the Soviet Union, Norway, Denmark, and the Balkans have all been overrun. And North Africa and the Middle East are next. So the right thing to do — the only thing to do — is for the United States to sue for peace and bring our brave boys home right away.

As an example.

The big difference is- between then and now:
The modern day Libs would have NO problem with what we did in WWII because FDR was a DEMOCRAT!
