The Army wouldn't fly their Apaches into battle cause they were too afraid of losing them. Who do you think picks up their slack?


The Army lost control of Germany and Japan after WWII. Both countries are still under dictatorship.

And yet more soldiers in the Army have been awarded the Medal Of Honor, have died in all our Wars, have led all major Wars with their Generals. I lost 38 friends and guys i grew up with and knew and served with in my hometown during Vietnam and the Majority of them served in the Army. The Army was afraid to send my friends in combat because of afraid of losing them.

Politicians and an unwilling nation spent the blood of 38 of your friends and were unwilling to let you do what it would take to win. They failed, you didn't. Don't blame or get pissed at me for pointing it out.

It seems that every time we have decisive victories and are then left to occupy a country we slowly let it slip back into the hands of our enemies. Why? Because the political failures we have as leaders will not allow us to do what it takes to win.

Trying to buy some boards for an old alignment machine and of course the guy asks what are you willing to pay. So if I low ball I'm an asshole or i get bent over sans Vaseline and abused.
Unfortunately may be the only place i can get them.
Only took almost 3 years to get service manuals for it. to find out need a special board to calibrate every thing again.
Son of a bitch...

I wasn't commenting on that but these.

The Army takes over after the other services have won. I even include the Airforce in that. The Army usually becomes an occupying force and they slowly lose control once the other services have moved on to the next campaign.

If the Politicians would have listen to Gen. Patton we would wouldn't have had communism in Russia. If the Politician's had listen to Gen. McArthur we wouldn't have had communism in China.

Although we lost 56k plus soldiers and the Viet Song lost over a million soldiers it would have been just like the 6 day war back in the 60's that Israel won if the Politicians got out of the way and let the Military run it.

MacArthur was fired. Patton didn’t get promoted. What does that tell you about the political game. They should have become presidents like Ike, a United States Army five-star general, aka General of the Army.

With very, very few exceptions, all politicians suck. Doesn’t matter where they’re from, what color they are, or what side of the aisle they’re on. Why would anyone pursue a career only to play that game.
