  •  Two words: Stinger missiles (4.00)
    Our "permanent" bases in Iraq are going to become Dien Bien Phus as soon as the insurgency starts to acquire shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles.  Once we're isolated enough in the country that IED's are no longer effective weapons -- i.e. when we're confined to these self-constructed prisons -- then the planes and helicopters will start coming down in the kind of numbers that will make our presence rapidly untenable.  

    I wonder if the KoolAid-poisoned military has figured out how to fight their way out of a hostile country when the air is denied to them.  God help our poor troops when that happens.

    -4.50, -5.85 Lies are the new Truth.
