Liberals don't believe in winning wars. That might hurt the other sides feelings. Then they may not join the one world government.
I'd prefer we run off the indigenes, rename the place to "East Dakota," and start issuing land grants.It is high time to bring them home..
I'm pretty sure the general mindset for those "in the know" is that no one thinks you can ever "win" in Afghanistan. Historically that's been the case through the centuries. So why bother - just go over there to do your thing and get out ASAP. Besides I'd rather it be over THERE instead of over HERE.Top general: It's a draw in Afghanistan - Yahoo! News
what happened to victory? WHY did we send our people in to that rat hole if there is no intention of winning to start with?:grumble:
thinking you can't win is the first step in going down the drain.
no one has ever put out a serious effort there. the soviets just candy ass-ed around and eventually pulled out. we are following right in their footsteps.
i have met the tangos on the battlefield. their chicken shit to the core. the only time they take or hold anything is when we pull out and hand it to them.
they have a hold of the population. how is that? the locals know if they don't go along with tango their children get raped and murdered.
all we have to offer is infrastructure projects. more free handouts to their corrupt officials.
to win we will have to crush the Taliban into dust. if we don't have the guts to do so they win. plain and simple.
it is either put out or pull out for us. none of that middle of the road is going to work.
one thing that hasn't been spoken about much is the results of a pull out.
if we hand that part of the world to our enemy how long is it going to be before their back at our doorstep?
