Just two weeks into the war, it’s almost universally recognized that US-led forces went into Iraq understaffed. Not only did Saddam Hussein’s regime fail to crumble the moment the Third Infantry Division crossed the Kuwaiti border, but the much-vaunted "Shock and Awe" bombing campaign failed to prompt Iraqi military officers to defect.I never read a newspaper article that had so many inaccuracies in one paragraph!
1. Universally recognized by the ill informed press.
2. Would you accept crumbling a few days later?
3. "Shock and Awe" wasn't used. It wasn't needed.
