Reader comment on item: Must Counterinsurgency Wars Fail?

Submitted by Miani, Elie (United States), Sep 14, 2008 at 17:45

Brilliant as always. However one ingredient is missing.

Western leaders seem to have grown up on a diet of western movies that have the lawman shooting the gun out of the hand of the badman.
This maybe good for the movies but in REAL life you shoot the badman dead,period.

Destroying Irans nukes may or may set them back abit even IF succesfull-And is akin to shooting the gun out of the badmans hand.
Droping a bomb on the Majlis when they are in full session is the reality .Take the badmen out !

It has been established in countless civil actions that the Iranians have been involved in some degree or another in almost every major attack against our interests, our citizens and our homeland despite our administrations policy to" hear see an speak no evil".

By the way this approach does not require all those aircraft carriers plus who knows what and at the same time minimizes the chances of retaliation.Just one bomb one plane or even hand delivered .Sorry for leaving out the dramatics( Remenber the dramatic shock and awe show of Iraq?)
The last time we faced suicide bombers were the Kamikaze in ww11--our answer was Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

"If you can't take the heat stay out of the kitchen"

In our situation find another planet to move to.
