11:57 pm - wanna know what I think about Gulf War II?  This pretty much covers it.
Of course, I generally do find the War Nerd pretty much on target.  But this ranty missive is particularly spot-on, even if it is mostly writen because some other armchair general pissed him off.  http://www.exile.ru/2005-July-28/victor_hanson.html

What's the difference between "armchair general" and "General"? Most generals sit and think about things.

"Armchair generals" don't actually have thousands of heavily armed minions that execute their battle plans in real life. It's a fairly significant difference. =)

So you're denigrating people for being powerless.
