NOTE: IS A COLLEGE DIPLOMA A MUST TODAY?
The old folks used to always say; the biggest fool of all is an educated fool. And adding my opinion I think anyone that thinks a college diploma is a must to reach the pinnacle of success in today’s world is a fool. 

Sure, it is an advantage to have a college diploma, nobody can deny that. Plus, in certain medical and technical fields especially the S.T.E.M fields (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) its true a college diploma is a must. But, other than that it’s not that big of a deal, and even the technical skills needed can be hired when one has the money and knows what he wants. 

Two of the greatest computer pioneers to ever exist were not engineers, but they knew what they wanted and got it. Enough said.

WESTERN THINKING VERSUS MIDDLE EAST REALITY:
OK, I’m going to make a very brief statement on what I think is military common sense. In every military war or conflict there are going to be people wanting to desert or run away. I think in every army it is a death sentence to desert during time of war. 

Now, that being said, it takes cold harsh brutal discipline in many cases to make the odds of surviving better fighting the enemy than running away. Many armies have used divisions behind the line to shoot on sight anyone running back to safety. 

I believe in certain parts of the world with many tribal and other factions only a strongman can do what it takes to make his army fight instead of running away. And until the west realizes this fact the whole thing is an exercise in futility in my view. 

That is my one man’s opinion; I said the same thing during the Iraq war and haven’t seen noting since to change my mind. However, crying over spilt milk concerning the Iraq war serves no useful purpose and is a sign of irresponsibility and weakness.
