No I never did. Just a comment on current events. We went there because of the 9--11 attack. We screwed over Russia there so Russia screwed over us. I agree that we will be back - hope its quick next timeDid you really think we were going to change anything? The only way to tame the middle east is to change the culture and the only way to do that is to eliminate it.
We went there to kill a bunch of people because they killed a bunch of ours. Unfortunately we didn't kill enough of them so we will be back there again someday to kill a few more.
Exactly. The days of Ike, Mac, and Patton are long over. Today's generals are more concerned with their personnel file and keeping Washington happy than they are winning a war. They're nothing more than politicians with fancy uniforms.Our military and civilian leaders have forgotten how to win a war. The soldiers win every battle but the wars are lost.
