Whoop!

We managed to win 2 of the 3 games. Combined with the 3 out of 3 from last week gives us 5 out of 6. The game we lost was close at least 21 to 25 at the end. Some of our players really got kind of sloppy in the middle, just pushing the ball over and such, not really paying attention to the game. Ah, well, it is the social league. Joe still got kind of snotty with them, of course, he is like that.

So some war college professor finally figured out that we are going to loss the war in Iraq. Like Duh. I've known that for a while. Using a military force like ours against a guerrilla force is just stupid. Your best bet against that is to pull out and wait for the guerrillas to organize so you have something substantiative to fight against.

You'd think we'd have learned that some 35-40 years ago, when we were up against the same thing. However, we did let some of our more ee-lite fighting men use the same guerrilla tactics against them, and progress was made... too little too late, though.

Of course, this is in a much different environment, where a true free-fire zone doesn't exist, and there's a lot more innocent bystanders to hide amongst as they blow holes in bandsmen by remote control.
