Peggy Noonan explains our cultural problems and the view of the rest of the world. This paragraph is the best analysis of our "warriors" I have seen.

"I saw it last month, when we met with a tough American general. How is the war [Afghanistan]going? we asked. "Great," he said. "We just opened a new hospital!" This was perhaps different from what George Patton would have said. He was allowed to be a warrior in a warrior army. His answer would have been more like, "Great, we're putting more of them in the hospital!"

That - in a nutshell - is our problem in wars since Vietnam. Read the whole thing commenting on more important cultural matters.
