When was the last time our American military won a war?
Ask yourself THAT question. WHEN exactly was it?
I’ll tell you.
THAT was the last time our military won a war.
Did we win in Korea? Nope. Vietnam? Clearly not. Did we win the first Gulf War?
Well, there’s a question. We clearly ran Iraq out of Kuwait didn’t we? Yes, clearly we did that. Saddam had promised the mother of all battles and what we saw was the mother of all retreats. Iraqi Republican Guard units were surrendering to journalists and begging for food. They had heard that journalists carried with them…cookies.
At that point, the Republican Guard would have surrendered to the Girl Scouts.
The Iraqi Air Force fled to Iran and Iran kept the planes. It was a route but…Did we win the war?
No…Not really. We won the battle for Kuwait, but we left Saddam in power and did not invade Iraq.
What about the war in Iraq? Did we win THAT one? No. We got Saddam and his sons and chased al Qaeda around but, upon political timelines and decisions, we bailed out before the job was done and now, al Qaeda and Iranian agitators are moving in leaving Iraq a battleground with no clear direction.
