PJM links to a thoughtful article at VARIFRANK, who suggests that:
“People often point to our nations inability to tolerate losses on the battlefield as one of the decisive factors in warfare in the modern age that is defeating the western world; but few take the time to think that we are also being defeated because we have chosen a strategy of not inflicting losses on the enemy.”I'd only add that we have also not inflicted enough loss on the RIGHT TARGETS: Hizballah, Hamas; Syria; and IRAN. Especially Iran. Iran has not paid a penny for their support for their proxies or their illegal nuclear efforts. It's passed time they did. In spades.
