Thank you for the well-chosen excerpts of MacArthur’s work as an explanation for the pickle we are in at this time.
Patton wanted Russia and MacArthur wanted China. Let’s not forget that the American people were tired of war. We may have had nukes but what’s a million Chinese deaths other than millions more available? Didn’t matter to them. We were in a unique position after WWII and we didn’t take advantage. Hindsight will always be 20-20. Even our Rat friends second guessed 41 for not taking out Saddam the first time only AFTER arguing against the mission.
