How is the Vietnam War combat the same as the Iraq War combat?

Dictionary Definition: "Police Action"; "...localized military action by regular armed forces...against guerillas, INSURGENTS, etc. violating international peace and order." Iraq has a "WANTED" list of people. These individuals are to be arrested, or taken, Dead or Alive, by the US and/or Coalition Forces. As Saddam had been arrested, tried in a court of law, then executed. He was NOT protected by any laws of war. Actions such as currently ongoing in Iraq have occurred (by US Forces) in: The Dominican Republic (Santo Domingo) in the 1960's; The Philippine Insurrection in 1900 (which was bloodier than the Spanish-American War of 1898 which spawned it; and lasted longer); and the "Banana Wars" in Central & South America in the 1920's. The US is NOT at war with Iraq. There is NO government to negotiatate with. There is NO flag to capture nor one to surrender. The US is NOT fighting another country. The US is NOT fighting another Air Force. The US is NOT fighting another Navy The US is NOT fighting another (Regular Standing) Army. The mission in Iraq is to restore law & order, and stabilization to the country. WWI, WWII, Korea, & Vietnam were fought AGAINST other country(s) which had governments to communicate with. To seek either peace or surrender. WWI, WWII, Korea & Vietnam had Air To Air Combat involving each nation's AIR FORCE's. Each nation's Army fought each other. Each nation's Navy's fought each other. Each nation's government had communications with each other.
