"The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis."
The fact that the Afgans voted for a government that has made extending education to girls a state policy would surgest that public opionion in Afganistan isnt as simple as many make it out to be.
I obviously saw you make a claim;
I obviously asked you to support it;
I obviously saw you try to weasel out of doing so by saying 'look it up';
I obviously took that as you admitting that you could not support your claim.
And so, as you have conceded the point, the dicussion is over.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
So, the Messiah refuses to define victory because that would require him to have a strategy to get there.
Since there is no definition of "victory" applied to this conflict, it's clear that under the Kenyan-in-Chief, all US forces should be withdrawn. If the K-in-C can't articulate the goals, he should not be placing men in harm's way to get shot at for no purpose.
Yet, the Messiah makes no mention of any plans for immediate withdrawal of the troops.
Until a definite "victory" is defined, all US deaths are murdered by the President.
Oh, and btw, Hirohito didn't sign the surrender documents. Duh. We're going to miss Jimmy Carter, the Idiot President, before this doltish Messiah is done hurting us.
Victory can be defined as the establishment of a stable constitutional democratic republic that recognizes and protects the basic human rights of the people in Afghanistan.
Bush managed to have that process almost complet in Iraq before he left office, something that, no doubt, the Messiah is going to try to take credit for.
It may be difficult to achieve that victory, but it wasn't hard to define. Took me all of thirty seconds to type it.
Failing that, victory could be defined as the complete sterilization of the geographical region known as Afghanistan, to the final salting of the croplands with strontium-90 and cobalt-60.
Depends on which way we need to go.
BUT...if the definition of victory is not provided, and since the Boy Wonder Messiah brought the issue up, he is indeed, as Kenyan-in-Chief Messiah, obligated to either define the goals or get the Americans the hell out of there. In either case the failure is not America's, but Kenya's.
How can that goal be said to have been achieved when your Messiah, like the two liberal boobs before him, utterly refuses to close the damn border with Mexico, thus leaving a 1500 mile long back-door wide open to any terrorist thug seeking an opportunity?
