Smarmy Army

I was just listening to NPR this morning, on the way to taking the Demon Spawn to school, and there was an interesting segment about the Army, and about how they are working on a new approach to War. They were talking about how we are great at blowing things up and gettting rid of enemies (did someone mention Bin Ladin? No.) They have written a new manual about stabilization for war-torn areas, about how to set up things like the police, resources like food and water, communication systems and...a stabilized economic structure for areas that we, or others, have just torn asunder.



'Zackly HOW are we to establish a stabilized economic structure for ANY other country when we are totally unable to do so for ourselves????

File that manual under Army Code "As IF"
