Amy I am afraid that your grandchildren will have to. I see no way of concluding this current conflict in less than 1 to 2 more generations. Our weakness in this kind of war is that we like to go finish the thing in very short order and then bring the boys (and girls) home. What we need to do now is to establish a very long time frame and hope we wind up ahead of schedule. This is nothing new. It just duplicates the dynamics of 1866 through the 1890s concerning the post-war frontier army. Do that and the grandkids will come through in good shape as will the country. God Bless!
