As a country we have changed they way we fight a war.We no longer fight wars we fight "police actions". We use our military as a world police and it is ridiculous. We need to get back to the way we fought when Teddy Roosevelt was president or the way we fought in WW2. Conventional war may be ugly and it may get men killed but that is what war is. war is ugly and it is bad, but it going to happen. It has happened since the beginning of time and will continue till the end of the time. War has changed it is true, war has gotten more "civilized" by only allowing certain weapons or not allowing certain types of ammunition. All of that only makes modern "war" more not like war. Nowadays we are not allowed to use hollow-points because they cause more damage... why the hell would they do that. The point of war is to kill your enemy as fast as you can, not to have to waste two bullets on one man...I am getting off topic here but the point is that te United States needs to re-learn how to fight a war or we will continue to pussyfoot around the middle east for years. The US has fallen into a hole full of hippie views and people afraid that people die in war....well guess what, people die in war. In order t win a war more people are going to have to die, on both sides. Unfortunately that means that some US soldiers and Marines are going to lose their lives, I sucks, I know. But it is the way war works. In order to start to win the War on Terror we need to use the US war machine the was it was intended. we have already tried to speak softly to the terrorists, now it is time to hit them with the Big Stick (for those of you that don't know that is a Teddy Roosevelt reference, look it up).
