LISTEN UP!!! The KOREAN WAR was started when President Harry Truman ordered a small number of soldiers into KOREA in what was called a "Police Action." Over three years later, more than 33,000 U.S. military were killed and 107,000 wounded. My U.S. Army Combat Engineer Company of 200 men alone lost 120 men KIA or wounded. The lesson that should be learned as we teeter on the brink of a "limited" attack on SYRIA is history has a way of repeating itself. Things never go as planned hence the term SNAFU (Situation Normal All F**ked Up) was coined. Remember: There is no such thing in war as "surgical strikes." There is always collateral damage even with the most precise planning. The cable news shows are doing America a great disservice with a steady parade of pundits who never served a day of their life in the military and haven't got a clue what takes place in a war zone. History has a way of repeating itself, and we may be watching it unfold right now before our eyes. Picture from my Army album on Facebook shows me with my trusty M1 rifle
