I agree with our way of doing business, ie, ?civilian leadership? form of government.
But how many armed conflicts do we need experience, with it?s cost in lives, maiming and injuries, not to mention dollar cost to the taxpayer, or successful conclusion, before we learn that when we have a military job to do, we turn it over to the military professionals, and the politicians and civilian leadership back off. In the planning as well as the execution.
Politicians always have their own agenda, which can, and does, change with the wind.
Political appointees and civil servant bureaucrats, the ones who direct and approve the grand scale of a military operation, seldom if ever, have any hands on experience. They typically are the Pile it High and Deeper?s whose only military ?experience? was gained from the TV set or computer gaming. If the truth be told, for the most part, their experience in the world of academia has ingrained in them a mistrust and disrespect for the military.
Career military professionals, particularly at the three or four star level, understand their place in the food chain, and follow orders. They don?t make Douglas MacArthur?s or George Patton?s any more. Today?s versions know better than to deviate from the political point of view, or to speak out in public. And just like their civilian counter parts, they protect their retirement and build their legacies.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
