Step back from your "front line troop mentality" and grasp the bigger picture here. None of these "mistakes" would have ever happened if we did not have corrupt politicians sending our military into places we never should have been in the first place.
I get what your saying. Sadly we're in a war and it doesn't look like it's stopping any time soon ) =
