    I'm wrong? Did the enemy surrender to us? Did we accomplish our, "political objective"? Describe our victory to me. Thanks!

    you insisted Obama surrendered to the enemy
    i want to know the terms of surrender you speak of
    or is this just another statement you are unable to back up
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    Obviosuly, the terms of our surrender are that we will unass our position in Afghanistan.

    ... do you even know what surrender is? There are no white flags going up with US troops being taken POW by the Taliban. We are withdrawing troops. Do you think we surrendered to the enemy in Vietnam?

    That's not a surrender. That's withdrawing which is followed by a signed, usually mutual, peace. We didn't surrender after 'Nam. The US military just up and left. South Vietnam surrendered and capitulated however.

    If we're fighting a rear guard action, to support a total withdrawal, then yes.

    Surrender isn't only defined by white flags and surrender documents.
