  2. \"A Dangerous plan is better than no plan\"Believe it or not, this stteament is true. If you\'re not willing to take a risk, even a major risk in a military setting, every now and then, then you\'re not going to make it very far in this world.Another thing, this war is nothing like Vietnam. We\'ve only lost 1800+ troops. Yes, every death is horrible. But it could be A LOT worse. Suck it up and keep moving. Losing that many troops in a day was normal for World War 2. Hell losing that many in the first 15 minutes of a battle was normal for our Civil War. When bodies start comming home in the hundreds every day we\'ll have something to talk about. At the rate we\'re going, it\'ll take another 150 years to get us up to Vietnam level casualties.You may be unaware of this, but Americans are not weak fat western cry babies that can\'t stand the heat. That is a mistake that people have made throughout history. One look at our history, and our current situation in Iraq shows that we are tough, and we are able to adapt to changing situations.
