    Of course the Taliban and Al-Qaeda also have an end date in sight.
    Do you know the logistical difficulty of moving a standing Army?

    At one time the idea of war was to win.
    Please give me a definition of winning?

    Now it seems that there will be a lot of money spent, many lives lost, and during the killings and the lost treasure an announcement is made to the world when you will pack it in and go home. And all for no particular reason, apart from a fabricated 'timeline'.
    What would be the alternative? Stay in Afghanistan for many, many more years with the same result? You do realize NO foreign power has EVER conquered Afghanistan, right?

    Of course I realize that. End of combat troops means simply that. Not an end to the presence of American troops. But what is your point? Are you an isolationist? (in the purest sense)

It's a concept that has been studied for over 100 years, and quite familiar to the Communists and Nazis, and most likely the Fascists as well.

    Not bad for someone who was soft on terror and was going to "cut and run" as soon as he was elected, according to his political enemies.

    No I am not an Isolationist. Also you asked for a winning Definition to War. Example.....any Country defeated. Becomes the 51st State of the United States. Land and all that is in it!

    In Afganistan?

    I get confused when people suddenly change the subject.
