Abstract:

Throughout our nations history, there have been many conflicts and wars that should have taught us valuable lessons. In many instances our failure to learn from the past has cost lives. A working knowledge of history will not always give us the answer but it may help us to ask the questions we need to ask. For example O.I.F. what to do once you have taken over and occupied the country How do you police the country Whats the plan for getting electricity back There are many things we should have thought of. The American Revolution and Vietnam are just some examples of wars and conflicts we could have learned from.
