    of responsibility for dangerous matters and chicken hawks or armchair diplomats. I do wish she'd kept her hands on the table and just nailed the jackasses with a level glare.

    Most of the TP/GOP legislators have never been in anything more serious or dangerous than their own drunk driving folly or some business meeting or campaign event going bad on them. They are absolutely clueless about "fog of war" or its related "fog of emergency" outside war. They are largely the people that people with a level head and experience would have to rescue in a hot spot or shipwreck, not people doing the rescuing or dealing with the emergency.

    My best estimate is that if they had been in that compound or in the duty stations dealing with those events they'd have been whimpering and helpless seeking rescue or fumbling about in confusion. Personally I'd like to drop the lot into some really hot spot so those that survive could learn a thing or two about how things really work in such situations.
