The difference is , back in 1941 , Americans got angry , and America was out to WIN . Now America gets attacked , Americans get scared , and America has not won a war sense 1945 , we are no longer out to WIN . Anything short of absolute victory …..is a defeat . War is very much like sports , if you suit up and get on the field , you need to be there to win ! …………..if your not there to win , dont show up for the game . Period .
