Very few politicians ever see, or appreciate, the realities of the wars and fighting they call for; that's been the case ever since there have been politicians and wars.

President Obama called out for boasting about his proficiency in targeted assassinations, as cited in the book 'Double Down'.Stating "I am really good at killing people" regarding drone strikes.

Interestingly link will not post but his statement appears in several places and is easy to find.

It has been said that wars are decided by old men, but fought by young men.

Too bad we don't fight hard enough to really win. We have pursued the war on terrorism for over 12 years, yet no nation or tribe or organization has surrendered to us. That is zero victories.

Maybe instead of pinpricks from drones, we need to level entire cities, and show them we mean business.

What would national security-conservative Americans think if Putin announced he's kill 10,000 muslims, for every Russian civilian death?
