1992: Al Gore Criticizes Bush 41 for Ignoring Iraq's Ties to Terrorism.



In 1992 Al Gore takes George Bush to task for not taking firm action against Saddam.  He tells the audience that Bush knew about Saddam's weapons of mass destruction (biological and nuclear), but that Bush "looked the other way" [and did nothing].

It just was security above all. And I just wasn't comfortable with the Democrats' response and so while I voted for Gore and Lieberman in 2000, in 2004 was the first time I'd ever voted for a Republican president."   Source: David Zucker interview with John Gibson on Foxnews

Too often the words "tactics and tactical" get thrown out there but are not explained in a clear and concise manner.

Doing something tactically simply means performing a task in a 360 degree environment while maintaining the three attributes of tactics; security, control, and common sense.


1)  Make the best use of available cover.

2)  Be aware of your surroundings

3)  Maintain mobility for security.


1)  Keep control of the situation by communicating with others.

2)  Put yourself in the most advantageous position in relation to the threat(s).

3)  Stay on top of the situation until you are sure the dust has settled.

Common Sense:

1)  Always check your actions or planned actions against the common sense factor.

2)  Is what I'm about to do a good idea? 

3)  Is this worth risking my life for?
