    You have no concept of the enemy and their desires and only judge them by their own propaganda campaigns.
    News flash the Taliban arent targeting the US outside of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

That is why I think some argue that we needed to be more aggressive militarily and loosen up the rules of engagement.
    Then we are back at the original point.....incompetence in the waging of that war. 13 years, an array of allies and drone strikes in the thousands and the enemy is "not beaten down enough"...

    It simply is not working.

    Their goals are to set up the Islamic Emirate again. Not to start global jihad. Hell there are talks about possibly negotiating with them.

    As long as its their choice. But I dont love the idea of a continuous, endless war. I also dont love the idea of the USA being the worlds policeman.
