    What a topic eh? By reading some of these responses, I see the freaks are already awake and at their keyboards. Look, there are many reasons why history has not - seemingly - been on our side for the past 40 years. A significant reason is the concept of perception. What is our standard of victory? How many people today know what our government defines as success? Do you? I doubt it. My point is simply that your definition of success as you see the world may be vastly different from our government's definition, as they see the world. And the media, perpetually being on the outside yet always trying to convince people that they are on the inside so that they can pay the bills, has an entirely different definition of success. In the end, it's all about perception. What did we accomplish in Vietnam? Many people would tell you nothing. Others might point out the fact that Thailand was never subsequently invaded by Communists. Neither was Malaysia. Nor any other country in that part of the world. Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos were the last countries to fall to the "Reds". So if you look at Vietnam in the light that our definition of success there was to stop the spread of communism, it sure looks like we achieved our goal. Military victory over North Vietnam was never a reality. The Chinese flooded N Vietnam with troops, money, weapons, and advisors. It was Korea all over again, but our allies in S Vietnam did not have the same resolve that our allies in S Korea had. So they fell. And we left. But Communism stopped spreading. If you look at Central and South America in the 80's, we had a number of military successes. We won in Panama. We won in Greneda. We won in El Salvador. Those aren't insignificant victories, even though many who are not informed like to play them down as if we accomplished nothing. The reality is that we stopped the spread of our enemies' influence in those areas. It was - and continues to be - a significant strategic victory. We continue to win in Columbia. Yes, we are winning there. Again, all about perception. The FARC loses more troops, more supplies, and more money by the day. Their days are numbered. The trick? Convince Columbia to believe that the FARC is bad for everyone and worth fighting against. Then teach Columbia how to fight. We've done it, and it's working. Mogadishu: Mogadishu was a NATO peacekeeping mission called Operation Restore Hope. We were trying to keep millions of people from turning on theirselves and killing each other. We went after a guy named Mohammed Farrah Aidid, who was a militia leader. The mission itself was a failure, in the respect that we did not get Aidid. In terms of loss of life, the American toll was 18, and the Somali militia toll was 1,500-2,000. Again, it was simply a battle. It was not a war. It was one mission among many that were conducted during that time. One failure. Yet, if you ask anyone about Mogadishu, they only know about the one failure, none of the successes. History tends to record the drama, not the boring facts. There are countless conflicts I could include here, but the point is the same. All of these conflicts share one common denominator: an irregular, assymetric enemy. They are all insurgencies. Just so you know, an insurgency is the ugliest and most infinitely complicated war you could possibly fight. Your friend who cooks your lunch at day is your enemy who mortars your base at night. Your ally who helps you fight against one group this week is your enemy who fights with a rival group AGAINST you next week. How do you win? We're still putting the pieces together in that puzzle. I don't think anyone in history has ever cracked the code on winning an insurgent war. So far, Sri Lanka is about as close as anyone has ever come to defeating an insurgent force. You know how they are defeating the LTTE? They are ignoring the media and international communities pleas for peace. They are telling the rest of the world to STFU and let Sri Lanka worry about their own business. And it's working. Maybe the US could take a few notes from this one while we still have the advantage in Afghanistan... Don't believe for a second that the American military is inferior to anyone else out there. It's hard to claim that our military is the best in the world, because you cannot quantify our capabilities and resources as opposed to someone else, like Russia or China. They have their strong points, we have ours. If we had to fight a war, it would most definitely be a war of attrition. Ugly, bloody, and long.

    Vietnam is now more capitalist than the US, and has one of the fastst growing economies in the world. They also appreciate more social freedoms than they did a generation ago that go along with capitalism. Enjoy your day.
