So if Al-Q steps it up a notch and attacks us with a group from say....Africa. Does that mean Afghanistan was a Victory? Does it mean it was a defeat?
Obama is absolutely right in saying that victory in Afghanistan is not necessarily a goal, victory should be when Al-Q can't attack us from anywhere. The goal is to defeat Al-Q, not just defeat them in Afghanistan or Iraq, but everywhere.
If Al-Q moves the majority to Africa and attacks us from there, we should go seek them there.
That depends - can they attack us from Afghanistan?So if Al-Q steps it up a notch and attacks us with a group from say....Africa. Does that mean Afghanistan was a Victory? Does it mean it was a defeat?
What they can do from elsewhere doesn't really have bearing on Afghanistan, does it?
It is -THE- goal, in Afghanistan.Obama is absolutely right in saying that victory in Afghanistan is not necessarily a goal...
It is -A- goal in the broader war against terrorist groups.
There may NEVER be a complete victory in Afghanistan.
But, I'm not sure how you can argue that defining your goal as X and then achieving X is not 'victory', so long as your goal us sound.
The Obama DID, however, place considerable importance on Afghanistan during and since the campaign. I'll look for quotes to that effect...Obama is not wanting this to be the be all end all on the battle against terror.
I know. That was my point.Causing Al-Q to dig deeper in Afghanistan while moving the majority to Africa let's say does mean that America has a victory in Afghanistan nor a defeat.
