Interesting choice of words, al-Sadr

Normally, I disregard all Arab pronouncements/declarations/speeches as the overblown dreck they are, but the latest slavering rant by Muqtada al-Sadr caught my eye.

”I call upon the American people to stand beside their brethren, the Iraqi people, who are suffering an injustice by your rulers and the occupying army, to help them in the transfer of power to honest Iraqis,” al-Sadr said in a statement issued by his office in the southern city of Najaf.
”Otherwise, Iraq will be another Vietnam for America and the occupiers,” the statement said.

Now where do you suppose this unlettered savage got the idea to invoke Vietnam? Oh yeah … thanks, Teddy.
