Short Take

How is it, that afterthe debacle of Vietnam, we make the same mistakes in Iraq and then Afghanistan -- of fighting the war we were prepared to fight rather than preparing for the circumstances of the conflict at hand? Of course, it's not just u,s as evidenced by the French in World War II, or all the generals in World War I who thought that cavalry and trench warfare were effective strategies in an era that introduced the machine gun and poison gas.

The whole sad, wasteful history of feckless military strategies bears witness to the point that a society or civilization is only as advanced as the deployment of its collective intelligence. In every case of failed military strategy, there were military minds that knew better, but who either muted their voices or  were ignored.
