marcs2 commented on Betrayed by the Zeitgeist she once channeled, Tina Brown invokes it one last timei was a newsweek reader up to the 1st gulf war. i read now every military system did not work. M1 tank used too much fuel to be used in combat due to it's turbine engine. the desert sand would clog its filters. the anti-tank missles would not penetrate russian armor,the all volunteer army could not stand up to the battle hardened hussein troups. the helicopters would not work in the desert due to the fine sand clogging their filters. the war started and everything that i had read in newsweek was the opposite of the truth. all the military systems worked very well and the troops of sadam hussein were refered to as battle weary after the war started. i cancelled my subscription. mark twain " do not believe anything you read in the newspaper" amen!!
