    ..and a little early-war UAV action along the Euphrates:

    Yeah. The Republicans were rather less reluctant to kick the shit out of the Taliban (or whomever). Contrast that to current prosecution of the war in Afghanistan

    And my favorite youtube clip for my pilot/trader friends:

    Enjoy.
     
  2. Yeah...then they left to dick off in Iraq. Great strategic move to let the enemy regroup, refinance and rearm. Great job...you should be quite proud.

    Doc I remember them hanging Saddam. He seemed like a pretty bad actor having gassed the Kurds and he was shooting at our folks patrolling the no-fly zone.

    I guess they thought they needed more than that and fabricated the WMD thing. I will never understand that, it was unecessary and totally destructive to their cause. They wanted regime change, they shoulda just said that. It was a good enough reason.

    Huff Post?

    LOL!
     
  5. There are bad actors are over the world. Plus we had such air superiority in Iraq every time they went SAM lock we blew them off the map. And of course all that was fabricated bullshit in Iraq.

    However the point is as you brought up is Bush screwed the pooch in Afghanistan by neglect. And we're not likely to ever gain the initiative again.

     
  6. Having trouble with goat herders and rice farmers, what would happen if North Korea or Iran were an adversary? Curtain is coming down on American exceptionalism save in your own feeble minds. Enter the era of third world mutants ...some of you are already there.
