[lit-ideas] Re: Iraqi problems caused by Iran (1)

Not a problem, let's make excuses.  We have this immense military and we invade 
with an army smaller than theirs?  What was the point of that?  Now three years 
later the military says this war cannot be won militarily.  So why bring up 
that their army was the 4th or 5th biggest in the world?

I suppose this is another of LeGault?s example.  If you had a chance to think 
about it you might have seen flaws in your statement, e.g., we fought the 4th 
or 5th largest army in the world with an army smaller than theirs.

"Good grief, to fight what was something like the 4th or 5th largest army in 
the world and stay long enough to get a democratic regime going and the 
infrastructure and economy established and have casualties of under 3,000 is 
amazing.  That there are still people who can look at these facts and see a 
failure is also amazing."

They're the 4th or 5th largest army in the world, but our military is 15 times 
larger than all the militaries of the world combined, a fact conveniently 
overlooked in the spinning process.
