Ranger Jim's definition of COIN:
Where cultures meet over rifle sights.
Hmmm. . .and what is it the U.S. is doing in Iraq? Is it not interference and destabilization on a stellar scale? Matters not that the U.S. has packaged it as a humanitarian effort. As Enid Strict, The Church Lady, might say -- how convenient!
First we invade Iraq in a war of aggression, totally destroying its infrastructure, then occupy it. From this mess we are calling democracy in action the U.S. has the temerity to cast aspersions on Iran.
It is illogical and insane for the U.S. to contemplate a military response to Iran when it is obvious the U.S. is strained maintaining its present two war fronts. Yet Admiral Michael Mullen, Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff, says he could call up his reserves and the U.S. could open a third front (CIA Director says Iran wants to kill Americans in Iraq.) And what would that leave to protect the U.S. from an unforseen threat?
An attack upon Iran would be as rational an act as that of a suicide bomber. The average U.S. citizen will not benefit in any manner from an attack on Iran, other than gaining another worrisome distraction to divert their attention from the skyrocketing cost of milk and oil.
Let us hope Congress will clip George Bush and Co.'s wings this time around.
