Hey, remember the sensitive war we tired in Somalia? You know, where we didn't give the commanders the armor they had requested. If you'll recall we held these back because we didn't want to appear to be overly aggressive when we were there for a humanitarian mission. Bottom line we ended up with Blackhawk Down and dead Army Rangers!
As it turned out we were fighting the forefathers of al Qaeda. Then Osama gave his interview to ABC in which he stated that this is when he knew that America could be defeated because we didn't have the will to defend ourselves.
That is what a sensitive - nuanced war will do for you! BTW, this IS in the context Kerry intended it.
