Rope-A-Dope
Scott Ritter is a former UN weapons inspector in Iraq during the mid to late '90's. Here, he talks about how, although the never found weapons of mass destruction, they kept stumbling across plans to hide conventional weapons & small arms, how to make improvised explosive devices, and all the other elements of an insurgency campaign. But, since their mandate was just to look for WMDs, they really couldn't do anything about it.

Too bad, because, despite what the talking heads would have you believe, the attacks on coalition troops in Iraq is looking less and less like Al Qaeda & foreign fighters, and more and more like Phase II of Saddam Hussein's Plan to Defeat The Americans - fall back, draw them into the country & cities where their tactical & technological advantages are negated, and just bee-sting them to death.

Why, Oh why can't people learn from Vietnam?
