Hell no.. I pay out like crazy. I was just making my best liberal flame Mitt Romney attempt.

This. Americans seem to think of War in a completley different way than Easterners do. Their strategy is to sit back and peck away at our Forces. Causing massive spending and time wasted. They will pay foreign farmers to keep us in one AO while actually funding real operations somewhere else to keep us distracted. They do not rate success by numbers in combat. They'll willingly sacrifice 100 fighters to distract us while they send two guys to accomplish the real mission somewhere else. We have fallen for this BS too many times and wasted Billions (Trillions?) fighting a war designed to deplete our funds and provide munitions and supplies for real operations elsewhere in the world. Eventually we leave and they move right back in and continue business as usual. The only way to fight these people is with smaller/specialized Units. We need to stop invading these places and play the game to win.
Because clearly you are far more well informed than the likes of the CIA.
Not in the least, I lean more towards an ancient secret style of learning through "books" and spending a lifetime of fighting the War on Terror for a living. Don't be a smart ass. Our strategy is slowly moving towards what I've stated. There are a few great books by some real heroes who have studied and fought in groups better than mine who have devised this plan years ago, but as you know the military takes a while to change strategem.
Sure I get what you're saying. Even though they have equally as impressive knowledge as you, they specifically brief and train soldiers for the middle east to do all the wrong things. Definitely something the most advanced military in the world would do iyam.
I assure you I'm not knowledgeable compared to most, just opinionated. While I won't state which organization I work for, I can assure you I have reason for my personal opinions and many in the CIA or any organization with "specific" missions and tasks share the same opinion. You will see all SOF Units from any Military branch or Government Agency operate in smaller more elite teams rather that the death by superior numbers strategy of our past. I'm not sure if you disagree with me or if I offended you by coming off "pompous" some how. I assure you it was not meant that way.
As the democrats continue to gain power through their stranglehold over the poor while eroding the middle class, what is a person like myself supposed to do? Is there any last bastion of conservatism left in the world, or am I supposed to suffer along with these idiots?
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
Unfortunately there is nowhere else, this WAS the last bastion of rational thought.
Join the TaliNazis with Nova and I.
Then get the hell out and go to one of your top five
Obamacare may be the best thing to happen to the GOP in 2016. They just need to make sure they don't allow the Dems to amend it and make it workable.
Well, it's guess we'll have to rebuild after their complete and utter meltdown
They need a candidate that isn't so outspoken about their stances on social issues. Regardless of whether or not you or I think they're important in an election, pulling an Akin and saying things like, "If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down," is going to lose you the vote. Period.
lmao top 5 reasons you idiot, not top 5 country

Well yeah that too.
car bomb all the sucks IMO.
You make good points. The style of fighting that we do now is drastically different than we used 10 years ago. I hate to say it but the Iraq and Afghan wars were huge learning and training experiences for our military. We weren't ready to step into urban warfare but did anyway and now we are ready. Just ask anybody that went to basic training before 9/11 and compare it to people that go now. However, I bet Israel has been teaching that style for decades.
I also agree with your theory on smaller, elite units as opposed to large occupations. I think that will be our way of war in the future.
The United States will not win another war until we redo our rules of engagement, and ignore parts of the Geneva Convention. It's as simple as that.
There is no excuse for our abysmal failure in Iraq and Afghanistan. Our military is the greatest the world has ever known, but hasn't won a war in almost 7 decades, because of ridiculous rules of fighting and a government that will not commit to win.
Amen, I get really pissed off when people brag about how great the US military is
The potential is there, but the execution blows in far too many areas these days
Iraq and Afghanistan will be taught to militaries throughout the world on how " not " to invade a country
Its almost a step by step playbook in terms of Iraq
I'd like the Republican Party to be fiscally conservative & socially moderate. Seems like our guys are more focused on whether or not two dudes should get married than this national deficit or ridiculous spending. Worry about what matters, not your spiritual convictions.
I remember an interview with a woman voting for Obama due to his position on abortion. Made it clear that nothing else had any bearing on her decision. I wondered how many times that ugly bitch could get someone to impregnate her anyway.
Same shit the Right! said about Clintons tax reform of 1994.You know loss of jobs,world coming to an end..yadayada! Now Clintons a genius by the Right,go figure.
The brave don't live long but Cowards don't live at All!
The US military has the greatest advantage over its contemporaries than any fighting force has ever had in its time, yet can't win a war. The reason, as stated before, is our politicians tie our soldiers hands behind their back for God only knows why. I guess so war doesn't look so brutal on TV. This is something we can once again blame on liberals.
