    You seem to be ignoring a few things.   Supply lines, terrain, and the size of our military force in Afghanistan are all slightly different than they would be if the military every had to be used domestically.  It's a heck of a lot easier to get tanks to, say Topeka, KS (picked randomly) than it is to Kabul.  

    •  Well, the Big Red One is just about 35 (0+ / 0-)

      miles west of Topeka (give or take a few miles).  They could get there in under an hour if they went full tilt.

      Since you mentioned Topeka, anyway.
