Our military has been neutered ever since the ridiculous ROEs were implemented. If we conducted this war in a manner meant on DEVASTATING the enemy and breaking his will to resist, we could actually have WON this war many years ago...

What do you mean by "win?" Proping up Karzai's pro-Iran Islamtic kleptocracy?

Not just that, but we aren’t taking into account the Eastern mentality. We never did in Vietnam and we never did any analyses of how to understand their thinking process. They are more subtle, sadistic, and clever. Instead of breaking the doors down, they figure out to unpick the lock or undo the hinges and go out through the other end of the door. This is what we are dealing with, not this ‘fair fight’ mentality that we are transferring onto an enitrely different battlefield.
