    I know very well where I am. Now, would you like to talk about the topic or continue whining about ODS?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I have the greatest respect for men like Captain Newson, but I have to wonder if they have not got into the habit, maybe because of what their superior officers have taught them, of overthinking what they are doing. If this elaborate Petraeus-style finessing of the locals works so well, why is al Anbar the way it is now? What happened to all the elaborate work that gave rise to The Awakening and the turn for the better things took in Iraq in 2007? And what happened to all those divisions of Iraq troops we spent so much time and effort training? It seems the U.S. can't even scrape up a couple brigades of them in the whole country that are willing and able to fight.
    It may also be that the Civil War was a different type of warfare from what we face today.
    Have we entirely discounted that possibility yet?

    We may need more information before we toss aside the advice of people who have actual first hand experience.
    Well, I and other people may. Your mileage may vary on that point.
    I may be wrong.

    Oh, ISIS is screwed now... they have brought the full force of Michelle Obama's Hash Tags down on their heads.
