Here Comes Another Dumb War We’ll Refuse To Win

So it looks like Kim Dum Idiot is aching for war.

Here are my thoughts, FWIW. Anyone able & willing to educate me is welcome to give it a shot. But if all you want to tell me is what we CAN’T do as we sacrifice tens of thousands of our irreplaceable kids, and another few trillion dollars, on a peninsula able to defend itself, in a war 10,000 miles away that we will refuse to win… I’d say you have your work cut out for you.

Given that in conventional war the side with the most artillery tubes wins, […]

Growing Too Fond of Our un-Terrible Wars

American Civil War General Robert E. Lee said at Fredericksburg, “It is well that war is so terrible, or we should grow too fond of it.”

With our all-volunteer force, “surgical” strikes, ever-cooler toys of combat from drones to smart weapons to advanced aircraft, to battlefield videos all over YouTube as entertainment, we have made war no longer terrible for our nation – and have grown “too fond of it.”
