  • It took 4 years for the U.S. to win WWII

    Is Iraq becoming a quagmire?

    Doesn't this look familar? Say 1960's and early 70's.

    QUOTE
    WASHINGTON - Opponents of the war in Iraq marched by the tens of thousands Saturday in a clamorous day of protest, song and remembrance of the dead, some showing surprisingly diverse political views even as they spoke with one loud voice in wanting U.S. troops home.

    The surging crowd, shouting “Bush out now” and “Peace now,” marched in front of the White House and then toward the Washington Monument in an 11-hour marathon of dissent....

    ....While united against the war, political beliefs varied in the Washington crowd. Paul Rutherford, 60, of Vandalia, Mich., said he is a Republican who supported Bush in the last election and still does — except for the war.

    “President Bush needs to admit he made a mistake in the war and bring the troops home, and let’s move on,” Rutherford said. His wife, Judy, 58, called the removal of Saddam Hussein “a noble mission” but said U.S. troops should have left when claims that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction proved unfounded.

    “We found that there were none and yet we still stay there and innocent people are dying daily,” she said.

    It's not a normal war. It's a new type of war. Comparisons cannot be made.

        Asymmetrical wars against native insurgencies are not new, not in the least. And the track records of the Big Powers that fight such wars are not the greatest.

          They're mostly winning records, though.

                  Does that include Japan and Germany "rebuilding"?

                        It includes the point when the U.S. entered hostilities on December 7th, 1941 and when hostilities ended on August 15th, 1945. Thus the official end of WWII.
