While Brecher lacks military experience or formal training in war, he has credited himself as self-educated out of a personal, lifelong obsession with warfare. He has also described himself as a fat slob who spends approximately eight hours a day on the internet searching for war news. Brecher describes himself as a "war nerd".
seanmpuckett:"That's the kind of C-in-C I want -- one who is uneasy with the use of force, and does so reluctantly yet competently, and is more than anything else relieved -- not exultative -- when it's over."
Kevtaro:"Speak for yourself. That's the last thing I want in a leader."
Ironmouth:"War is shit, it sucks. It needs zero "cheerleaders." That was the last lot and look what that got us."
leopard:"This makes no sense at all, unless by "Americans" you mean "Republicans." But why would you confuse these two terms?"
Stuff happens and it’s untidy, and freedom’s untidy, and free people are free to make mistakes and commit crimes and do bad things.

Kadin2048:"It's going to be very hard for Obama to take much positive credit for 'liberating' what looks suspiciously like a bunch of frothing Islamist ingrates, which is exactly how they're going to be painted by the Administration's enemies."
And the other tribe, the flyover state white glob I come from, would sooner comp bin Laden a suite in Vegas than give Obama any creds for taking him down. They sulked through it like a confused, hungover Pillsbury doughboy; the way they saw it, Obama got bin Laden on a technicality. There’s always been a lot of Osama/Obama blur in the way they see things, and they might’ve been happier if it’d been Osama zapping that snotty Hawaiian instead of the other way around.
