Unfortunately, we have over a hundred thousand of our soldiers inside Muslim countries with supply lines running through other Muslim countries, who could easily turn from “occupiers” into hostages if this whole situation goes pear-shaped. They’ll have to fight their way out like Xenophon’s Ten Thousand. It’s not a happy prospect any way you slice it.
I know, and perhaps that’s what troubles me the most about all of this. We have our best and brightest, often few in number alone and unafraid confronting pseudo-religious madmen intent on butchering them. With the current Muslim loving administration in charge, I am in favor of just bringing them home to confront the coming dangers here.
