You are *loony*. Have you ever read "From The Jaws Of Victory"? Have you
ever heard of Vietnam? The Gulf War is the first war in American history,
perhaps the first war in the history of the world, where everything went as
planned - and that was due to the overwhelming incompetence of the enemy. But
I'm guessing it's the only war you remember.

You're flat wrong. Just plain wrong. Wildly wrong. I'm not an expert on
military history, but even I can see you're totally wrong. If you want an
even more categorical answer, ask any military historian or any modern
military strategist.
