With respect Amos,the V.Nam war has shown such wars cannot be won.
If Saddam drums into his people the same type of propaganda Bush is doing to his, it will make a very different war indeed, what will the troops do shoot every one on sight? To do so will bring on side the muslim countries. In that sense it a no winner.
This is not a jibe on the abilities of the American army but if you consider what Black Hawk Down taught us,men women and children had no probs taking on the troops, compound that with military instruction as given in Irag and your in trouble,no reflection on the troops abilities at all. Bush should really think what he is asking his troops to do.
