Abazaid then went on to make one of the lamest history comparisons ever:
Gen. John Abizaid, likened the 21st century battle against extremists to the great ideological and political clashes of the 20th century.
"Think of it as a chance to confront fascism in 1920, if we had only had the guts to do it," Abizaid said.
THIS is the man who is our top commander in the Iraq? OY!
The fact that we were actually confronting the "commies" in Russia in 1920 (giving a noticeable push in support of euro-fascism simultaneously) just blithely gets ignored and history misapplied -- as always.
