    Wars have campagins, battle lines, rules of engagement , uniforms etc....

    Last war was the Korean War ie had all of the above ie Inchon

    Couple of problems - Korea was treated as a "police action" -no dec of war, solved nothing - still technically going on.

    It's cute that you think anyone gives a fuck about your opinion on combat.

    Was close to serving in Nam.

    Went to the local SS office and registered.

    Nam started to peter-out around 1971.

    You're correct, they're occupations. Doesn't really change anything, though.

    So you are like Brave Sir Robin that very nearly battled that Dragon?

    You are un-initiated. Your opinion about combat doesn't mean shit.

    Go fuck yourself.

    Huh? I thought Americans had a right to their opinions under the constitution. After all, they pay for everything, including war, with their hard earned tax dollars. Taxpayers can vote and elect people who don't care what your opinion about combat may be. Come to think of it, why should anyone care about your opinion on the same subject? What makes one person's opinion better than any other opinion? Having been there? Supporting what you support? Believing what you believe? Thinking like you?

    Opinions supported by unspun facts and logic carry weight. Other stuff is just talk.
