    In my town there is a monument to Gen. Pershing in the middle of a central square named after him. Nowadays he would have been court-martialed, disgraced and possibly sentenced to death for much less than what he had done back then. You're absolutely correct to say that "you have to throw the politically correct handbook out the window." but it's not because "Bush is no Blackjack Pershing". It's because as a nation we have become weak-in-the-knees and guilt-ridden and victims of the belief that the most vicious enemies can be defeated through law enforcement or won over with big doses of tender loving care. As to holding back the hellfire missiles, at different times over the last 10 years we had in our sights not only a bunch of Taliban but also Bin Laden and Mullah Omar. Both of them, of course, are still alive and well.
