This is coolbert:
ONLY as the shooting has just barely begun American policy and strategy with regard to ISIL less than sanguine?
Thanks to the tip from Ken and the article as written by Gary Anderson.
"If You Liked Vietnam, You’ll Love the War With the Islamic State"
"President Obama is repeating three key strategic mistakes that President Johnson made in Vietnam."
1. "an open ended commitment"
2. "thinking it can be done by airpower alone."
3. "That brings us to President Johnson’s third great mistake; he allowed North Vietnam to become a sanctuary."
"President Obama has emulated Johnson and will create sanctuaries by taking the ground option off the table."
The plan is the base from which all change is made!
Dynamics creating circumstances that warrant change.
Change as a response to dynamics.
NO plan works perfectly from the start. The better the planning and the more correct the assumptions the less change becomes necessary. But start with some plan and go from there.
