Quit Running and Fight

I saw at Flopping Aces that a Russian had said the Georgian Army must have been trained by Americans since they ran at the first confrontation. I hate that this is the way the world sees us today but to be honest about it there is some validity to the statement.

I have no idea what caused our politicians to believe that quitting a war is the best way to go but if one considers that starting with Korea all of our conflicts have ended with less than total victory. We had kicked the North Korean's asses all the way up to the Yalu river when the Chinese swarmed across the border and initially kick our asses. That was a relatively short lived setback and we recovered to push them back to whence they came. But what did we do once we had the situation under control and signed a truce that gave North Korea all of it's lost territory back and left Korea a divided nation.

The end result of the Korean War, they called it a Police Action during the war, is that we are now worried that North Korea is developing a nuclear weapon and the means of delivering it to our shores. So much for a negotiated peace. As soon as we turn our back we get stabbed.

Vietnam was much the same as Korea but we went one better and put rules of engagement in place that cost us thousands of lives and allowed North Vietnam to recover from every major defeat we handed them and to infiltrate their Army into South Vietnam through neighboring countries. We didn't lose the war in Vietnam, we gave it away.

In the Gulf War in 1991, we beat hell out of the Iraqis and could have easily taken the entire country but what did we do? We handed Saddam his country back and let him murder thousands of his citizens. We did this because we virtually destroyed his army on the highway of death and we were concerned that the rest of the world would think we were mean for wiping out an army that was running away.

We cut and ran in Somalia and Lebanon because the Somalis dragged our dead troops through the streets and we left Lebanon because a suicide bomber blew up the Marine barracks. Both of these retreats were shameful and should not have happened. But look at what we have now. Somalia is a chaotic mess that harbors terrorists and lets pirates prey on ships that come close. Lebanon is in the hands of Hezbolla and foments terror attacks on Israel fot Iran.

At some point we need to change the way we deal with military situations. I would like to see us return to a philosophy of total victory and accept nothing less than unconditional surrender fro our adversaries. We should make it clear to every country in the world that any attack on a US citizen, military installation, ship or plane will be met with the full force of our military up to and including a nuclear attack.

We need to tell Pakistan that we are going to destroy the safe haven that Bin Laden is enjoying unless Pakistan does it themselves. They should be told that we don't want to violate their borders but we will in necessary and they had best not try to do anything about it.

The US should pull out of the UN and form an organization of democracies. Those democracies should have a full committment to each other much like NATO used to have. We shoul also break away from NATO and align ourselves with countries who still have the guts to fight when necessary. France, Germany and most of the EU countries need not apply. They have depended on the US to do the heavy lifting long enough. Look at the "help" NATO is giving us in Afghanistan. It is a joke.

I am sick of fair weather friends who willingly take our money, let our military protect them and rely on us for technological advances while they stab us in the back in the UN and bad mouth us on everything.

It is time to elect some politicians who have guts and who are not afraid of confrontation. Obama is not one of these and 99% of our Senators and Congresspersos don't fill the bill either.

Men, like women, have several TYPES of orgasms. Ladies, have
7, and men have several, different kinds. Below is the video which should be produced about men's orgasms.

The primary orgasm which men have will be via their male organ. Naturally, every man in the world is aware how preparing.
A good, skilled, and motivated woman can deplete any man rapidly when compared with13623 small amount of time.
Which has never got a concern. Every woman knows this
lady will succeed which is the reason females have power over adult males.
