Have we learned nothing from our experience in Vietnam? The incremental escalation of attacks on the North was a dismal failure as a military strategy- it only gave the enemy time to adapt, improvise, and overcome. The Powell doctrine of overwhelming force should have taught our politicians once, for all that, once you are committed to military action, you make an all out effort to destroy the enemy. If you aren't serious enough for that, then stand down.
