1. It's naive to think that we wouldn't have covert action in every trouble spot.
Every world power has in place intelligence.

2. Then why bother lying to the people paying the bills?
Unless, of course . . .

4. It's not a lie...
Boots is a term used for troops. This is an intelligence operation, you know, the kind nearly all of us called for instead of boots on the ground in Iraq?

8. 90% of the time when CIA is involved so is Special Forces
Edited on Mon Apr-04-11 05:22 PM by Bandit
And whether we want to believe it or not Special Forces are a part of the Army..Special Forces are the ones they call on when training "rebels" is the job needed doing.

3. It's a bootless, non-combat, non-war, fought for non-purposes, with a no-exit plan.
What could go wrong?

7. Yeah, but it's a "kinetic" bootless, non-combat, non-war,
fought for non-purposes, with a no-exit plan, so that makes it extra special!
