our allies in the u.k. are apparently none too happy to be working with the u.s. military in iraq. here's the take from a british brigadier general. he claims that the u.s. military in iraq is too "gung-ho," too blindly optimistic, too quick to take offensive action and too institutionally racist to succeed in counter-insurgency in iraq.
this is what happens when the army becomes an all-volunteer force apart from the rest of society. those countries with mandatory military service are onto something.... (note: I never would have supported that when i was 18.)
