What the heck does that mean?
If Muslims do not kill Muslims then what was the horrifying Iran/ Iraq war all about?
According to the UN:
"The war cost both sides in lives and economic damage: half a million Iraqi and Iranian soldiers, with an equivalent number of civilians, are believed to have died, with many more injured; however, the war brought neither reparations nor changes in borders. The conflict has been compared to World War I:171 in terms of the tactics used, including large-scale trench warfare with barbed wirestretched across trenches, manned machine-gun posts, bayonet charges,human wave attacks across a no-man's land, and extensive use of chemical weapons such as mustard gas by the Iraqi government against Iranian troops, civilians, and Iraqi Kurds. "
No US boots on the ground?
How about the trainers from our Special Forces?
Someone needs to let the Air Force know that they no longer wear boots if shot down.
What a mess.
On the eve of 9/11, I am not thrilled with anything going on in the Middle East.
Unfortunately, I feel it will, someday, again, bite us in the tush.
I miss the thought of your smile Lt Col Neil Hyland. It has been a long 13 years.
The Risk games until 2 in the morning were the highlight of "Advanced Course".
May your soul and the souls of all of the departed, within this war against the US,
rest in peace.
