"If we quit Vietnam, tomorrow we'll be fighting in Hawaii, and next week we'll have to fight in San Francisco."
"Now, many critics compare the battle in Iraq to the situation we faced in Vietnam. There are many differences between the two conflicts, but one stands out above all: The enemy in Vietnam had neither the intent nor the capability to strike our homeland. The enemy in Iraq does. Nine-eleven taught us that to protect the American people, we must fight the terrorists where they live so that we don't have to fight them where we live."
—President George W. Bush, May 23, 2007
"The Solar Wars have been compared to Iraq and Vietnam. However, there's one key difference: we could leave Vietnam and Iraq and the enemy would not follow us home. But if we do not defeat the Space Ark Colonists on Jupiter, soon we will be fighting them on Mars. Then we shall be fighting them in the upper ionosphere. And then on Gaia herself."
—President Xerxes Poponopolus, January 22, 2041
