11/22/19 Danny Sjursen on the Failures of America’s War in Iraq

by | Nov 25, 2019 | Interviews

Danny Sjursen talks about the ways his experience in Iraq convinced him of the futility of that war, allowing him to see things that the generals and the war planners often could not. Sjursen says that not all officers paid attention to the local situation or to the people their units were supposed to be working with. Failure to do so led to far greater casualties, among both American soldiers and Iraqi civilians. Sadly the generals and politicians still seem unable or unwilling to learn the lessons of the past, and thus will be doomed to repeat the same mistakes.
