"Limited wars, by Mead's reckoning, fatally wounded three presidencies since 1945 — Truman's, Johnson's, and Nixon's."

Jonah Goldberg, who thinks the gloves should come off. I'm not there yet, but if we are being slowed up by orders from commanders who aren't in the field and are tying the hands of the men who are, then this is a serious problem. This quote is almost right, Nixon wasn't taken down by Vietnam, but the point is well taken.
