    I guess they don't know how to fight wars they can't win.
    What they should learn is when to fight and more importantly when not to fight

    I think you overestimate, you could win a battle or a great number of battles but after that you get tired and they don't

    And you actually believe the reporter's wrote everything they saw, and that Cronkite didn't censor? What's your current high bid for the Brooklyn Bridge?

    The job of a military is to make things so miserable in a war, for the enemy- he never wants to ever even think of fighting. Ghengis Kahn and Vlad the Terrible did that. The USA never will.

    I didn't say they told us everything, but they did shown us enough to scuttle support at home for the war. Later Cronkite himself announced he thought it was a lost cause. Nixon bitched we lost Cronkite we lost the war.
    When bush was President he didn't allow the cameras to see a coffin returning home.
    Big differance there

    You have to weigh the costs and benefits, the costs of bombing all of Syria to kill a couple thousand scattered ISIS pirates is to great.

    Rightys liked him until he came out against the war. Then as soon as he did that he became the enemy, enemy of Nixon & the enemy of Republicans.

    And who today thinks Vietnam was a good idea?
    (never mind don't answer that)

    Actually, it's the same. The news Drove the antiwar movement in the late 60s. With the internet, news has to react, and not create. Much more open today. Can't hide; even on foreign lands, everyone has a cellphone with a video camera...

    you got that backwards
    the MSM was quick to put the pictures of the coffins on the front page, lead with the story. Many fishwraps had death toll counts (the Courier did) showing Americans killed
    Barry elected, it all went away
    I knew people that had no idea we were still fighting in 2009-2010 because the coverage stopped.

    The Photos Bush Didn't Want You to See

    After 20 years, the White House ban on images of American war dead ended last night. Ralph Begleiter, who fought to lift it, wonders if the photos will change hearts and minds. VIEW OUR GALLERY
    Six years into the war in Iraq—and after nearly eight years of combat in Afghanistan—the U.S. government last night resumed allowing news photographers to take pictures and video of American casualties returning home, in flag-draped caskets, at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware.


    The Bushes managed the war so the people at home didn't see any "unpleasantness"

    http://www.bbc.com/news/business-13940431Sanders will make this come quickly.
    Clinton,Cruz,Rubio,Kasich will slow the process but not long...long enough for Establishment to make more money and leave us with the bill.
    I prefer to go down fighting under Trump.
    The GOP/Clinton Establishment will follow exactlly what brought the big crash..Romney's plan was identical in his speech yesterday...like we have unlimited military money.
    I prefer going down fighting.
    I'm sticking with Trump.

    Here is an example of a Democrat sponsored spending bill. Somewhere in there, there must be something that will help the American people. Take out the pork, and all that the American people will get is some bread and lettuce. Just elect another Commie/Socialist and the sandwich gets taller.

    Based on the local fishwraps, there hasn't been anyone killed since Barry took over.
