When  they  put the  frog in  boiled   water  frog   instantly jump  out  of  water  and save his  life.
But when  they  put  the  frog in  normal  water  and get warmed  slowly frog  boil  slowly and  consequently  dies.
 
Europian  Countries  has World war  two  times  .
Before  WW 2  US  was  not  a  super  power .
Destruction of WW 2  at  Eurore and Russia ,Japan help  US become  Super Power.
US dont  have war experience  at home.
Regional  conflict  from Korean  War  to Invasion  to Afganistan forced to US  act  like  World Cop.
This  little bit  help US  develop  skill and  instic with  live  war  experience  ,also look like  has to ride not  to fell down.
But the  problem ; US Defence  &&04;ndustry  in  some  sense depend  on  foreing  contractor  like  Amno.
&&04;f  these small conflic ,especiallly US presence  in Afganistan  gets US  provacated mess with large  scale war  thats  the  trouble.

The QRF existed before Benghazi. The failure was political.

Astute statement of European mindset.

That revealed a complete misunderstanding of American military history. From the Barbary pirate wars to the Native American wars to the banana wars, to the present; this is American military NORMAL. The American army and Marine Corps is used to playing police. That appears to be of what most of their history consists. Major wars are an aberration for them.
