Mo, this has happened more than once in the history of the army.  From the Kit Carson Scouts to the LRRP's.  Those who shine a chair with their ass and have not been in the field in years always know best.  They always want to rely on the new technology and prove how hi-tech that the military is at the time.  While serving in some of those units we were often questioned and at times we were told that we were not seeing what we were seeing.  Sometimes even told to rewrite our after action report.  Our recon didn't fit into what their intel was saying from a chair jockey who didn't ever have mud on his boots.  You are correct in saying that one day we will need soldiers who will go behind the lines and actually see things that satellites cannot see.

When I was working construction in a power plant years ago the elevators all has NO SOMKING signs painted in them.  I have no idea what somking was but you can bet your ass that I didn't do it.

I was in my twentys and early thirtys during the Cooper years.  I know the hate so much that the bile in your stomach would burn so bad that you had to go puke.  Seeing all of those great OSU teams lose to that team and enduring another year of saying "just wait until next year" made me sick.  I guess that what I am saying is that those who had to live thru that are a little gun shy during "The Game".  Those of us who live that nightmare are starting to gray around the edges and gaining a few pounds here or there however our stomach's still churn with the hate.
