If some of the "regulars" recall I had posted a couple of blogs as to why did we get involved in Libya to begin with. The contrast between Libya and Syria when it comes down to innocent civilians being killed is close to the same level. The reality about Libya is that the real reason was the oil. The world did not hesitate to "help" when it came to stopping the bloodshed under the guise of what is right.. Syria can gas and kill over 100,000 civilians, displace over 2 million people but alas no oil, no help... The kicker is if you choose to read the article you can see what the help amounted to. The moral to the story is commitment and follow through. If you are going to start something you need to have an exit stratagy, an endstate, and a plan for sustainment. We never seem to get that one right...

Oil has always been the prime - albeit sometimes unspoken - driver of our "national interests" in the Middle East.

Crossroads
October 15, 2014
After pursing the “headlines” for the last couple of days it seems painfully apparent to me that our nation is at a perilous crossroad. We are mired in such discord that your average Dooms Day Prepper is doing jumping jacks saying “I told You So….” I try to do my ...

ISIS Endstate
October 08, 2014
Am I the only one that is concerned with the ineffective air campaign against ISIS? We seem to be going down the same road we did with Libya in regard to airstrikes that destabilize the region and disrupt the “enemy” but bring no semblance of peace and stability. Libya is ...

The ISIL Solution...
September 23, 2014
I am a little distressed with our Commander and Chumps methodology to address the ISIL. He has zero military experience and has already displayed a complete ineptness dealing with foreign policy. My first issue is the month long media blitz essentially describing when, what, and where we plan to strike; ...

9/11
September 11, 2014
My heart is very heavy today; the 13th anniversary of 9/11 still seems like it was yesterday… I remember being in the TOC in Bosnia watching on the screen just like it was yesterday. The same feelings of shock, sadness, and anger are still just as intense as it was ...
