So we have concluded that we will never be at our "Utopic state" (yes, that is a coin phrase) and so we do what? Go to war? Again?
My friend, The Russian Bear , (Yuri) has put forth some FOOD for thought about Obama's latest decisions on Iraq. Harry Tunnell's, (Col., US Army) letter circa 2010 (linked) is currently posted on Michael Yon's site. This letter was written almost four years ago. I think events today are a result of the policies and leadership, or lack thereof, in foreign affairs.
We shook our impotent fists at these guys when they engaged in genocide in Syria, and scolded them not to cross that "red line". Did our leadership really think they would take seriously a man who did not lift a finger to help his ambassador to Libya?
We failed the negotiate a Status of Forces Agreement with Iraq that would have kept a stronger US presence.
If we, as a nation go to war, it should be to win. Define the enemy, destroy the enemy. Accept nothing but the enemy's unconditional surrender. We have failed to do this in both Afghanistan and Iraq, and I do not expect the American people will want to continue fighting. We've fought two wars in Iraq in the past twenty years. "Do we get to win this time?" - John Rambo".
I encourage you to check out the letter. It is quite interesting, insightful, and chalk full of details. Browse around the net and come back. Answer Yuri's questions and have a shot at mine. Here are my questions posed to all of you? Do you agree or disagree.
Yes, I made this funny Biden meme all by myself
We wait with baited breath for your discussion. Rock it!
