Food for thought.

After reading a number of similar comments in chat tonight I feel compelled to say something.

Yes, all of this is taking longer than we’d like. Duh! But do you honestly think our Patriots would choose to have this go on a day longer than it needs to? Of course not. To even assert as much is ludicrous.

So, if for some reason you oddly feel it necessary to proclaim publicly that you alone know how best to manage the larger military operation in play – trust me this one – you don’t. And it’s not even close.

The fact is that you, Mr. or Mrs. Combat Karen, don’t know more about how things need proceed than the people currently running point on effort to save humanity. You know, the people who have been at this for years/decades before you were even aware that there was a problem to begin with. Those guys. Let ’em do their damn job.

The solution obviously involves 1) educating us as to the magnitude of the pickle we’re in (so it never happens again), and 2) safely managing the completion of a resounding and historic victory for all of mankind that forever changes the course of humanity. Oh, and did I mention doing so without destroying the world economy and having things deteriorate to the point where door-to-door type conventional war breaks out in the process thereby putting MILLIONS of lives at risk.

So here’s a thought. If you feel the need to play ‘Chicken Little’ and/or make asinine assertions as to the superiority of your vast experience managing some of the largest and most complex military operations in the history of man – don’t.

Think of it this way. Kids complaining from the back of the car doesn’t do a damn thing to get to the destination sooner. But what it does do is makes the rest of the trip more miserable for everyone else in the vehicle having to suffer through it.

Food for thought.
