To the Editor:
     The moment we sent "military advisers" into a warzone, we much contemplate the possibility that one or more of them will be captured by hostile forces. We then have to choose either to write them off as dead, or to plead for their release from a position of weakness or to commit troops to getting them back.
    The first two options would devastate president Obama's credibility with his own armed forces. That means that sending "military advisers" is tantamount to sending in the troops that we'll need to rescue them.
   This is no longer about winding down president Bush's stupid war. This is your stupid war, mr. President. We are not behind you.
