    Re: Afghans Protest Alleged Koran Desecration

    I think the fact that the act was performed by a foreign army made it much more reprehensible, not sure if it was intentional or not I've heard conflicting reports, at this point I don't think the citizens care if it was intentional or not, they just need a target for their aggression.

    How about a demonstration thanking us for saving them from Osama Bin Laden and the Taleban?

    Oh wait, they are the Taleban.

    Never mind.

    And replacing it with an incompetent and corrupt government that is barely capable of exercising its own sovereignty?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    The word on the street is that they were burned because they were annotated with Taliban/fighter/insurgent/enemy instructions.

    I have been thinking .... and you know? every move the marines do ....every single move they make is dissected, analyze, criticize no end .... it annoys me

    We would have never won WWII had our soldiers been scrutinized this way! NEVER!

    yes but in WW2 the marines didnt act as a police force, they were invaders with the sole purpose of destroying Japan and Germany. Can't compare the 2 wars.
