Unfrozen Caveman Anti-war Philosophy

Senator Kerry, as a possible future Commander in Chief; STOP THIS MADNESS.

Hey, lets all go home and turn it over to NATO and make friends with France and Germany is great, but lets do it after VICTORY. In any event, NATO can barely support Bosnia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan as it is. Nice idea, but the facts on the ground make your proposal a dead letter. These are not the European armies of the first half of the 20th century. Most of them cannot transport themselves off the European continent.

If the enemy knows we will stay in large numbers until they are defeated, they will either quit, or fight and die. Both are good outcomes.

If they know we want out based on a calendar, they will attack to get us to leave earlier, or just sit tight, rest, rearm, and resume the attack when we leave.

This isn’t War College PhD stuff, any Marine Option ROTC type can tell you that. There is plenty or room here to make proposals, but this isn’t it.

Please tell me your foreign policy crew can do better. A lot of us see the pointy end of a dagger pointed in our back, again. Show us is it isn’t true. You may very well win in November. Let us know you have a plan for victory; to do otherwise is to spit on the graves of those who have fallen.
