  •  US Air Force hasnt suffered in Iraq (2+ / 0-)

       The biggest difference between the two wars is that the US Air Force hasnt had 2,000 planes shot down.  However, the effects of Shock and Awe (Iraq) and Rolling Thunder (Vietnam) were the same; useless in the strategic sense.
       As the AF pushes for the strategic bombing of the rest of the axis of evil- folks have to remember the huge difference between the wars is that the AF has not been bloodied in the GWOT.  It is the only service who approves of military commissions and is the most aligned to the current administration.  Sy Hersh and Ralph Peters are doing a good job portraying how "Dr. Strangelove" the boys in blue have gotten.
