Open Comment Post. Oct 18, 2016
I'm still watching the news but I find little interesting. Mosul? They've been planning that offensive for over a year. What kind of military commander telegraphs an attack and allows an enemy to fortify their positions for a year? Plus its an urban area? The stupidity is astounding but most will wave the flag, shout USA and not question military leadership.
Same applies to a "worldwide conference on ISIS". General Dunford is calling a meeting of over 50 nations to deal with the aftermath of the defeat of ISIS. Seriously? 40K troops and they've been allowed to fight almost the whole world to a standstill for a couple of years? Sorry I don't buy the fight, don't care about the outcome anymore.
US ships were targeted for a third time near Yemen. Independent ship operations, a lack of a plan to kill the missiles and a jacked up alliance with Saudi Arabia has me wondering why I should care.
Maybe I'm in a bad mood but that little snippet of issues happening shows why blogging has been light.
I want to care, but just can't make myself. But enough about me. What's on your mind?
