try saying that to anyone that has spent a year in Iraq kicking in doors... a lot of good tanks, gun ships, helecopters and bombers have done in urban combat environments...
I said turn the tide. I'm not convinced that was ever done in Iraq or Afghanistan, let alone by what. The fact that operations were limited as such in order to fight a political war and the results isn't something I would consider contrary to my point. That's at least another thread and probably another forum though.
