    Why?

    Why aren't we bombing these savages into the ground? With the technology we have, we shouldn't put the lives of our men and women in danger on the ground.Squadron Commander Died in Taliban Attack - WSJ.com
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    You can't win a war without boots on the ground no matter on how great the technology, Keith. War still requires warriors with stout hearts and indomitable spirits to go in harm's way and make the decisions about who is friend or foe , who is an enemy combatant and who is an eleven year innocent. You lessen casualties by fighting total war to win or you don't put the warrior at risk .

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
    -General Omar Bradley, United States Army

    I wil settle for them being TERRIFIED of offending us...and the resulting Tomahawk missle coming through the window. If they like the 7th century so much...I say they can live there....just don't mess with us.
    Totally out of compassion here boys.

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!

    True Captain. We haven't been fighting a war for years. We are sending our men to police when they should only be used the break shit and kill people. Let me run this and in a year it is over. My stipulations are:

    1. Media, you are out.
    2. Kill anything holding a weapon. I don't give two $hits about I picked it up on an accident.
    3. Live in this camp till we are gone. After the first month if you are outside of the camps you are a dead ass. Render unto Caesar, and Caesar is running this whole pile of dirt.
    4. Tired of us breaking your shit and killing everything. Don't let it come to this point again. Cool?
    5. Want to keep any future aid coming your way. Don't even let us start to think it is getting close to this point again.

    In one hand I have carrots. In the other, a stick with nails sticking out of it. The arm with the stick don't ever tire of swinging. That clear as mud?

    The above is plan "A".

    They don't want me moving to plan "B" aka We win you lose. Ronald Reagan



    Arm with the stick still would not be tired after plan B.....follow my meaning Putin.

    Five-O is calling for nuking the world again? Must be Tuesday.

    Meanwhile, in America, two milquetoast candidates battle daily with wet noodles. If I gave a shit I'd look elsewhere too.

    If that doesn't sum it up perfectly I don't know what will.

    That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.
