Obama: VA Model for Medical System
Even when he was campaigning for Congress in 2000, President Obama unveiled a sweeping health-care plan that modeled aspects of the Veterans Administration’s medical system.

As WND reported, eight years later, during his transition into the White House, he proposed in his “Obama-Biden” plan to “make the VA a leader of national health care reform so that veterans get the best care possible.”

In his 2000 congressional campaign, Obama proposed health-care legislation on the federal and state level to lower the costs of prescription drugs for seniors. His plan called for the government to buy the medication in bulk and resell it to seniors at lower prices. ...

It wasn't as simple as that, so while perhaps I oversimplified as well, there was still a basic difference in military doctrine, perhaps explained by Britain's long experience in low-budget imperialism:
Malaysia vs. Vietnam
Your ethnic distinctions aren't listed here.

Unnecessary casualties are difficult to avoid, unlike unnecessary battles.

Neil, I'm going to have to disagree with you on several points, the British could handle the Communist situation much easier in Malaysia because it was the simple matter if a person was a Communist, he was also Chinese. No doubt not all Chinese were Communists, but it made the handling of the Communist problem much more easy.

President Johnson started the large scale war in Vietnam because of Gulf of Tonkin incident. Should it had been done? No, and at least not in the way it was done.

As far as battles go, there are always unnecessary causalities, one of the things that make wars so stupid. But for World II stupidity most people would pick General Mark Clark, though one fellow who disagrees with that assessment, Mark W. Clark: A General Reappraisal. Wars should always be something of last resort.

Bullets, mortar shells, & EIDs have more prosaic substances in them, perhaps not a few soldiers have injuries from these.

The US gov't has long treated GI's as expendable; e.g. Omar Bradley wasted 33,000 men in Hürtgen Forest to no good effect & was surprised in the Ardenne, but not a voice was raised against him, whereas Patton slapped two men in hospital & raised a storm of public protest because he was such a meanie. But I'd rather get slapped than shot! Peleliu was another example of a bloody but totally useless operation.

Then there was Vietnam; even the British figured out how to handle commie insurgency in Malaya, but of course our stuffed-shirt generals learned nothing from that, & the public blamed the soldiers instead of the fools in the White House & “Fort Fumble.”

Like the British, we have better soldiers than generals. Best to avoid using them when possible.

when you've got lines of guys exposed to depleted uranium and you have a storyline to protect that we took out the wmds, it can get mighty difficult.

as they say, if you have a poor memory, its just better to tell the truth.

imagine scratching his head, we just don't know what could cause these symptoms "now go home and we'll see you in 6 months".

Well, if you read the other later thread on the VA, you'll find that Republicans cutting spending for the VA is a big part of the problem. q.v., Tie VA's problems to GOP budget cuts. So, tell you GOP Congressman to increase spending on the VA.

Have you read the article about Koch vs. Koch: The Brutal Battle That Tore Apart America's Most Powerful Family? Wow, Will Billy Clinton almost look like a Christian compared to that Catholic family -- the puppet masters of the GOP.

Apparently there is enough guilt to go around, from the article, "Obama was a member of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee. On numerous occasions he publicly chastised President George W. Bush about the wait times, treatment shortages and lack of funding to the Veterans Administration’s medical programs." So again, Baby-Face Bush had the problem on his watch, and didn't fix it.

So what has Obama done to fix the problem in the last 5 years? Besides I thought he had no prior knowledge of it.
