As far as the American war machine goes, I'm with you 100%. I used to haul troops in and out of the AOR for OEF/OIF. Got to get to know a lot of bad-ass soldiers. Those guys are very efficient, very well-trained, and can be extremely effective at what they do. Those poor guys were so beyond frustrated, because they absolutely knew they could get the job done quickly and effectively, BUT they are very much leashed as you put it. It's like throwing a champion killer pit-bull into a dog fight, but keeping him on a short leash, while some stupid yappy but mean Chihuahua is allowed to just go to town on him with no restraint. Constantly nipping and yapping at him. It's going to be a looooooong, frustrating fight. Let your dog off his chain, and that stupid little Chihuahua's done for with one swift chomp.

^^^AA, so many groups of people and sectors are eating shit in this recovery. Why does the military deserve a pass? I have always felt the US Military was just one big "Jobs" program. So rather than throwing $$$ at this "Job Program" why not tell employers that if they hire a combat vet, the employer doesn't have to pay the 7.5% SS match for the first 12 months and they get a $1k a year Federal tax deduction for up to 5 years for each year the vet is on the companies payroll. That would help the vets that served their country get hired easier and cost nowhere close to what we are spending now.
