The military aspects, which is what we're talking about here, were all amazingly successful. We didn't lose battles. Our casualty rates were very low by historical standards. To the extent that it took us longer to reduce the insurgency to manageable levels than we would have liked, it wasn't because we under-equipped our soldiers.

I don't understand how you can simultaneously hold the views that we spend too much on our military and that we don't equip our military adequately.
