Sometimes Thomas Sowell feels as if he must be one of the few people left in America who is not a military expert

…all sorts of politicians have been talking about all sorts of ways we ought to "redeploy" our troops
writes Thomas Sowell.
The closest I ever came to deploying troops was marching a company of Marines to the mess hall for chow.
He goes on to say that
people who have never even put on a uniform are confident that they know how our troops should be redeployed. Maybe this is one of the fruits of the "self-esteem" that is taught in our schools instead of education.
Sowell ends his column with some observations about comparisons with Vietnam.
