    See the wise and wicked ones
    Who feed upon life's sacred fire
    See the soldier with his gun
    Who must be dead to be admired

    •  "no boots on the ground" but boots in the sea, (6+ / 0-)

      boots in the air. 5 destroyers loaded with tomahawk missiles at a cost of 1.3 million dollars each, ready to "shoot across the bow." How quickly will the cost of those weapons of mass destruction run into the mega millions, and how much higher will Raytheon stock price go up?

      All those who keep saying there will be no boots on the "ground" must think all our war ships and planes are run by robots, as if there were no military involved.

      If we could do a war without any boots, just robots, we could just disband the military.

      But I do concede that technically, except for special op forces there, (maybe they don't wear boots ;) that boots in the air and boots in the sea, are not technically boots on the ground.
