Eagle2009, logic and wisdom sometimes do not point to the same conclusion but wisdom is always right, but logic always find out what was underestimated when it had failed! Human brains will lack a capacity to handle issues with more than 5-6 unknown and computers are clueless about what is the issues and their interactions, specially in human and culture!
Iraq has oil, we occupy it and get rich, was very logical, wasn't it? Are you rich yet? Maybe after you occupy Iran you will get rich? Why do you think Britain washed her hand off from colonialism? I bet you that an average British is at least 20% smarter than average American from IQ point of view and Germans maybe another 10% higher!
How can Afghanistan defeat US and NATO army together, it is impossible and illogical! You and US logic is only good for finding reasons for failures! But wisdom says that when your defending your country, you make impossible possible and when you are on somebody else land you will fight like a chicken!
I am sure you will find a good reason why US had lost half of its navy and Israel lost to Hizbullah after that happens! But wise people on this forum are telling you that is exactly what will happen. Because they have been in Iran and have seen the power of masses and saw how Saddam was defeated by bare hands in the first months of his aggression!
Do not count so much on numbers and weapons, since you do not have a complete picture of the reality. For success everything should work as you plan, for failure it is enough for a few thing to go wrong!
Look at US operation in Tabas! What went wrong? Not so much, it was windy! Could you forecast it? Of course. Did you guys deemed it necessary to check the weather? No of course not, what can bad weather do to the operation?
the answer was, not only it can cancel it, it can kill half of your rescue personal on the ground!
This arrogance attitude even shows in your space programs, with your shuttles explode in the air left and right or with recent disaster in Golf of Mexico when it comes to simple matters of drilling a hole!
Your democracy is winning the price of stupidity! Coming to the ME and saying to people, we know that our democracy does not work in our own country and big money have bought the politicians and not a single law with some benefit for people will pass our congress, but US will promise that it will work just fine in Iraq and Afghanistan.
You know, go and sell these theories to your own populations with its leaders IQ in low 100s and with its politicians IQs at much lower!
