Some people might believe that the Vietnam War was wrong in its entirety. As a result, those people might think that the Veterans are getting what they deserve for being over there. They believe that the soldiers deserved to be scorned when they got back, and not treated as heroes.

A few weeks ago, one of the president's advisors told NPR that Mr. Bush never wanted to burden the public with the war; that, in his mind, he was hired by the American people to do the job on their behalf. Gingrich says the President is placed in an awkward position. "I think the President is torn between reassuring us that he's managing the war and warning us that it's a real war," says Gingrich. "You have organized opponents who want to kill you — they're gathering resources and coordinating to try to kill you — and I think to try to describe it as anything but a war, is remarkably misleading."
