No chance of that happening these days. Even with a tough conservative in office, with a republican house, theres WAY to much political correctness to just go in like WWII and get **** done.It's about time for leadership to get a REAL plan to get out of Iraq (and that doesn't mean just pull out and leave a vacuum). We need to build back the US military to where everybody knows not to mess with us or it truly will be HE11 to pay and most importantly get morale back up. Quit P-footing around and let's take care of business like we did in WWII. We're using up all our top stuff and have no $$ to replace it. As much as it'd be cool to see a new rifle and handgun, personally I think we need to be spending $$ on research and acquisition of new infrastructure. The left wing wants to give those precious dollars to "social" programs, not defense of the USA. Go read the GAO report...it's SCARY!!! We cannot rest on our laurels militarily or financially.
Funny how you use the term "p-footing," isn't saying that essentially "***** footing" around the very term. And how can we take care of things like we did in WW II. We can't put are foot down like we did in WW II, because this conflict isn't like WW II. We have no clearly defined National entity that opposes us with direct military action (Iran makes noise - and elements within the country likely supply Iraqi militants).I Quit P-footing around and let's take care of business like we did in WWII...

Very true.Call me stupid, but last time I checked we didn't just jump into WW2. We only supplied the Brits and Chinese with both materials and pilots until the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. After that I wouldn't call it "jumping in and kicking ass", there was a lot of time and care put into the planning and overall process (something lacking with the Iraq War).
