If King Leonidas was the leading General in the war against terrorism in todays time, would the war be going any better? Would things be worse? Is he the kind of leader we're needing? Or would it be disasterous?

If Leonidas was general, he would slaughter everyone he sees! That's why I'll move to Canada.

If Leo were general,the rules of engagement would be the way they should be. If three snipers are pinning down a column of US soldiers, and they're holed up in a mosque, and it's prayer time, the commander shouldn't have to consult HQ before firing one shot at a mosque. NO! Leo would save time, prevent more soldiers from dying, and blow that place up with a 155 mm artiary shell. And if a few worshippeds die in the process,then it's the militants' fault for choosing a mosque as as a military post.

War produces classic remarks by military commanders; on February 26, 1991, the US 1st Armored Division, the famous Big Red One, encountered the allegedly elite Iraqi Republican Guard. The divisional commander, Major General Ronald Griffiths, radioed his deputy, who was riding with the armored spearhead. "I understand we are engaging the Medina Division?" he said, referring to one of the crack Iraqi Guard divisions. "Negative, sir," came the reply. "We are destroying the Medina Division."
Great proof that despite their quantity, the Soviet tanks that NATO planners feared above all else could be shredded by the M1 Abrams, Challenger 2, Leopard 2, LeClerc, Ariete, and Merkava with ease. Patton would be proud.

Right. The warrior spirit, and not being afraid to do what is right.
