A Long Lesson
On a day where there is much conversational buffalo to consume, the US Army released its 1300 page two-volume report on the lessons it has learned in the Iraq War.
Many of them are repeats of lessons long ago learned in other conflicts but then forgotten because that’s what we do. Then we fight another war and release another set of lessons learned that get put on the shelf and covered with dust.
We never learn and we repeat them again. And again. And again.
