” ‘If in the end war becomes necessary, as it clearly did in Operation Desert Storm, you must do it right,’ he [Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Colin Powell] said in a speech to veterans at the Vietnam War Memorial [on May 27, 1991]. ‘You’ve got to be decisive. You’ve got to go in massively. You’ve got to be wise and fight in a way that keeps casualties to a minimum. And you’ve got to go in to win.’ ”
