    Rumsfeld was all wet with his doctrine.

    Huge overpowering masses of humanity do - like in the Great Patriotic War - when the Soviets drove back the Wehrmacht from the gates of Moscow to the Brandenburg Gate.

    Get thee to a library and read. You keep making some really silly statements. I refuse to believe you are that dumb, so the only alternative is you are ignorant so go educate yourself.

    I guess you never heard of small nimble forces that tired out your "overpowering masses" and the families of those overpowering masses!

    Hint" Viet Cong; Muhajadeen; American patriots (1776)

    The Cong was backed by the Soviet Union and Red China in Vietnam.

    If small and nimble forces are so great - how come US is losing controll of Afghanistan and trying to negotiate with the Taliban?

    Are you saying the Taliban are more powerfull that the Wehrmacht?

    My thoughts on Nam - was 15 in 1968.

    Will it ever end? Country the size of Idaho

    Does anybody have a plan?

    USA takes care of business against the likes of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan in 1942-1945.

    Umm the whole concept of winning a war against terrorism is totally asinine.
