The military is not to be used to save face...

A Famous ancient military strategist explains why

There are Five possible operations for any army, If you can fight, fight, if you cannot fight, defend, if you cannot defend, retreat, it you cannot retreat, surrender, if you cannot surrender, die
– Sima Yi

Which role the US military is left in Iraq since Bush doesn't let them defend themselves effectively, nor allows them to retreat ? You guessed it. They are there to die. -- law


Sima Yi (179 - 251) was a general, military strategist, and politician of Cao Wei during the Three Kingdoms period. He is perhaps best known for defending Cao Wei from Zhuge Liang's northern campaigns. His success and subsequent rise in prominence paved the way for his grandson Sima Yan's foundation of the Jin Dynasty, which would eventually bring an end to the Three Kingdoms period. After the founding of the Jin Dynasty, Sima Yi was posthumously honored as Emperor Xuan of Jin
