…………… we choose to learn from it. As I arrive home from the Savery, I can only think of General “Vinegar Joe” Stillwell, following the crushing defeat a much smaller Japenese force inflicted on the Allies in Burma in 1942. "I claim we got a hell of a beating," [said Stillwell] "We got run out of Burma, and it is humiliating as hell. I think we ought to find out what caused it, go back and retake it."
Keep our seats warm, we’ll be back.
