warpedrazorback, I read all of your post. I think that the problems you had with the higher ups is common. We can’t change these people. They have only respect for absolute power and we have a problem with absolute power.
I have a lot of respect for what you have done and gone though. I thank you for opening up and telling us.
Americans that have not gone to war like you will never understand this. They need to understand what it takes to win a war in the middle east. We go with absolute power or we do not go at all.
