A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Larry Beinhart

George Bush -- and other Iraq War supporters -- have argued that if we withdraw from Iraq, the result will be like the slaughters -- the killing fields in Cambodia.

Here are the facts.

* The killing fields were real. The genocide against their own people was committed by the Khmer Rouge.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE
