This paper compares the reasons for George Bush's involvement in the Gulf War with Eisenhower's policies regarding Vietnam. It mentions Eisenhower's need to combat communism and Bush's to combat Moslem hordes. Both acted on reports sent by ambassadors to the respective countries. It continues to offer more examples of similarity. The author offers an opinionated account of the situations.

From the Paper:

"Those considerations, however, may simply be ones of style, not substance. In fact, the United States does have a history of stepping in, unilaterally if need be, when larger nations invade smaller ones, beginning with the Spanish actions in 1898. It is likely that George Herbert Walker Bush was acting not only consistently with his own pronouncements (after all, a swift, sure war is kinder and gentler than protracted one), and with the foreign policy that had been in place since at least 1898."
