A quick perusal of past wars I think shows no great truth unveiled after any war that wasn't intrinsically understood during armed conflict, and this before internet, CNN, satellite. Lots of books may be written, dissertations accomplished, but the general perception seems to remain the same.

>> I don't think we've had a war that can be compared to the situation in the Middle East. If this was the old days; we'd have nuked whatever country destroyed our skyscrapers, right? Pretty simple stuff.

GW is man enough to take the heat because he's trying to accomplish something that will protect the entire planet-

> read protect oil and line the pockets of his cronies donors friends associates.

>> Of course. You can't talk about global security without protecting oil in an oil-based economy. I'm amazed at people who disdainfully say we are fighting for oil like it's a bad thing. Unless you're riding a horse and burning wood, you have lot of interest in keeping the oil taps flowing. As for lining the pockets of yada, yada, - he certainly didn't invent that. That's how the power works everywhere in the world throughout history.

BTW, my nephew is a Marine, has been there, and is going back-> I hope he stays safe.

>> Thanks, me too.
