    College education to understand strategy???? When fledgling America fought for independence, the strategy that turned the tide was the strategy that the colonists learned from the indians-and I highly doubt-lol-that they had college educations. It takes a savvy leader with good instincts more than a degree on a piece of paper. I would bet that if the military had been allowed to function as they wanted last summer, the outcome would have been much different. When my family was growing up, my policy was this---1)don't fight-walk away and ignore the taunts-and continue doing so, but 2) if you are trapped and there is no route of escape, let them strike first-and then, "clean their clock"--worked very well, even for my girls--all it ever took was one bloody nose for the bully to back off and leave them alone. israel is hamstrung by bad leadership-change that, and see what happens

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
