Obama: 'Victory' Not Necessarily Goal in Afghanistan - Political News - FOXNews.comPresident Obama has put securing Afghanistan near the top of his foreign policy agenda, but "victory" in the war-torn country isn't necessarily the United States' goal, he said Thursday in a TV interview.
"I'm always worried about using the word 'victory,' because, you know, it invokes this notion of Emperor Hirohito coming down and signing a surrender to MacArthur," Obama told ABC News.
The enemy facing U.S. and Afghan forces isn't so clearly defined, he explained.
"We're not dealing with nation states at this point. We're concerned with Al Qaeda and the Taliban, Al Qaeda's allies," he said. "So when you have a non-state actor, a shadowy operation like Al Qaeda, our goal is to make sure they can't attack the United States."
I'm sorry, we're not there for victory, just to.. keep Al-quada from attacking us again...
Our President just admitted he doesn't want Victory, he's ashamed of defeating our enemies... What a freaking moron.
