I think Michael has done it again

The enemy is physically weak, they appear malnourished, they can’t shoot a rifle with any accuracy nor can they coordinate amongst themselves. These guys suck at fighting so why are we not dominating them like the chumps they are? Why? Because we do not have a clearly defined mission and thus have no understanding of why we are here which results in extreme risk aversion because the only measurement of success is keeping your casualties low as humanly possible. That’s why.
Excellent article, like every Michael Yon one!
....Crossposted on Michael's Blog though so easy mistake to make.

BTW, Yon's recent Tracking and Gurkha Articles are well worth reading if anyone hasn't seen them yet.
