Marine Time Machine | Desert Shield to Desert Storm

Daddy did it so right.  Son did it so wrong.  No.  Son fucked up beyond recognition.

The question we must ask.  If we had a Powell, Schwartzkopf, Boomer, Horner, Yeosock and Arthur today would the fight we're in turn out differently...or is it a case of civilian leadership/think tanks turning sugar into shit?

That is one thing that I can't wrap my head around.

Military leaders take the blame for failed operations (or should) but what happens if civilian leadership doesn't set the conditions for a win?  18 years at war and civilian leadership hasn't taken its lumps for the failed strategy.  Is that right.
