War ... what is it good for? ....
There are many types of "warfare". You have policing actions, interventions, limited warfare, all out warfare and even, so called, peace keeping is
a form of warfare.
The United States "lost" the "war" in Viet Nam not because it was incapable of winning but because they fought the wrong sort of war. The U.S.
was restricted to the type of actions that it could take because of self-imposed, politically restraining rules of engagement. In Viet Nam, the tide
turned very quickly once the U.S., under Nixon, began bombing Hanoi. The North Vietnamese returned to the peace talks with haste when they
experienced a taste of "unrestricted warfare".
Such is the case in Iraq or, as in the case of warfare with Iran, it all depends on what kind of war the U.S. wages. I can clearly state that if the
U.S. declared an all-out, unrestricted war against Iran or Iraq or Afghanistan or anywhere in the world, the U.S. would win. But, as we can all
understand, an unrestricted war would be one that would have an enormous death toll among innocent civilians.
Look at Iraq, yes there are many civilians being killed but one would also have to understand that there would be a great many more innocents killed
in an unrestricted warfare. All out war with the U.S., would be a fearsome thing to behold.
If the U.S. declared an all-out, unrestricted war with Iran, all that I can say is that the U.S. would win. To say otherwise would be ignorant.
