    Here is how I think about a painful event or experience.

    Instead of simply licking my wounds and feeling bad about it, I try to consider it as an expensive tuition payment in advance.

    Now, the challenge is to find the lesson or lessons that I have already paid for.

    My question for you and anyone reading this, "What was or is the lesson(s)?"

    And "What should we do or not do or do differently now that we have paid for this lesson or these lessons?"

    How will that tuition enhance our future decision making?

    And if you can't figure out the lesson then you threw that money away.

    And in this case, money and lives.

If he continued to be uncooperative we should have gathered intelligence (even if it took months) and made a strategic strike by bomb or a small team of commandos directly on him leaving the rest of the country alone. We should never have moved forces into the country.

    Once he was killed and his successor was in place we give the same ultimatum and consequences to them, eventually whomever was in power would comply to UN weapon inspections the way they should.

    That has to be the funniest thing I've read in some time.
    Your sense of humor is bewildering.

    The information in the piece I cited is factual and documented to be true and accurate.

    It provides us a pattern, an outline, a framework which we can better recognize what Muslims are doing and how they are doing it right under our noses.

    If you find that to be humorous, did you also bust a gut when watching, Schindler's List?

    And did you watch it over and over and over on a porn loop.

    So all Muslims are Jihadists, or would side with Jihadists given the opportunity?
    What does the term jihad mean to you?

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.

    LoL yes I know we gave him an ultimatum and then launched Shock and Awe when he did not comply. That statement was more for completing the strategy I believe we should have used instead of the one we did.

    We already paid the tuition and then flunked the class in Vietnam. Will the tuition affect future decision making? It didn't the last time. Perhaps the lesson will stick this time around.

    The American Thinker is not exactly what I'd call a reliable source.

    It's as legit as Daily Kos.
    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.
