    We didn't learn anything from LBJ's debacle in VietNam where 50,000 Americans died to enforce a convoluted left wing dogma. Thanks to LBJ's new concept of modern warfare the US would win every battle in VietNam but lose the war. Democrats seem determined to to do the same thing in Afghanistan. I'll say it, liberal and cowardly politicians have sacrificed American lives in some convoluted plan that forces the greatest Military in the world to fight by rules set by the enemy. Americans can barely fire a shot without a political decision made that could unfairly end the careers of Military lifers in a heartbeat. You can't win a war if Americans can be indicted for murder if a civilian is killed in a crossfire.

    I agree with the basic notion that ROE are politically driven and tend to handicap our troops rather than let them win wars.

    I disagree that this is exclusively a liberal phenomena. I've seen it come from both sides of the aisle. I think it's better to say that politicians tend to chicken out no matter how tough their campaign rhetoric. Once it looks like it's getting too gory, liberals and conservatives alike wimp out and leave our troops hanging.
