Hopefully, they'll try to fly them.
I seen something similar before. I was in Vietnam during the Eastertide Offensive of 1972 and watched the South Vietnamese units that still had American advisors fight like heck and eventually drive the North Vietnamese back. Then with JUSMAGTHAI in Bangkok I watched these same units that had fought so good, An Loc being a prime example basically do what the Iraqi’s did, throw down their weapon and run like heck. Because of this I wonder if we still had an adviser with the Iraqi’s in Mosel, what would have happened. Now it isn't a matter of training, when I left Vietnam in March of 1973, those units were well trained. I am sure when we pulled out of Iraq a couple of years ago, the same was true.
So what makes the same troops fight like heck when our adviser is with them and not without them? Moral perhaps, I don’t know. I do hope this is where the similarities end, but I am fearful that is not the case.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
Give control in America to liberals...and this is what you get.
No surprise here.
Since Obama has no idea what to do in regards to the ME, he should do the only smart thing he CAN do: DIP all American-made equipment he can get access to, evacuate all US Military and any American civilians who want to go from the region, and tell everyone in the ME that they are on their own.
