Are Geneva Conventions outdated?
#34
An all or nothing approach to international military actions will inevitably lead to failure. It is better to choose targets carefully and than with precision take them out. I think the US was still developing its military power, changing it over from the failures of previous administrations and the post Vietnam syndrome. US intelligence has also been devestated during the Ford and Carter years leaving little connection and contacts on the ground in the area.

On a larger tableu the US was coming out of a deep recession which would invariably lead to an incredibly long period of prosperity (consider the taxes being cut from 70% + to 26%. The Cold War still raged and had no secure winner.

Based on this view, the attacks on the barracks may indeed have taken second seat to other needs. If there had been an attack similar to the World Trade Center, I do not doubt that those priorities might have shifted.[/quote]
