    No way. The insurgents suffered a great loss.

    I don't think so. It was always know that Afghanistan would be a problem. Gotta get the Pashtuns to play ball and when that didn't happen, things have escalated.

    Iraq went badly for awhile, until we got their new Army trained and instituted a counterinsurgency strategy.

Oh, and one more point: the US is in desperate need of additional forces in Afghanistan...
    Got the contracts!

    Hopefully, we will leave Afghanistan.

    America won the Vietnam War by losing it. Deja vu in Iraq.

    The Chamber of Ministers passed a no-confidence vote after which Viktor Yanukovych should have resigned, after which the Supreme Court ruled that due to the massive electoral fraud (proof of which is even found in taped recordings of the Yanukovych's campaign and government officials on how best to rig the election) that the rigged election results were null and void, and after which the Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian Parliament) passed various electoral legislation that allowed for the re-vote.

    In the first round of elections neither candidate had enough of the vote to win, and Yanukovych rigged the second round of voting which prompted governmental procedure including a no-confidence vote, a Supreme Court Ruling, and electoral legal amendments, to allow for a third round of voting. There is nothing unconstitutional about it, except for the part where Yanukovych rigged the election and then ignored the no-confidence vote of the Chamber of Ministers.

    But I guess in your world rigging an election is Constitutional, but holding a re-vote for said election is Unconstitutional. Wow.

    Ever wondered why the burning of your flag is such a popular pastime around the world? In fact, wherever your country puts its "liberating" boot people develop a hobby of flag burning? Maybe they don't want to be "liberated"?

    1. Bush said we won the war in Iraq in May 2003


    2. Of course you will. Eventually. When you will bleed yourselves to death. Isn't it great to defend so loyally the profits and the power craze of the clans in charge of the US?

    Unless of course, in your world rigging the elections (which happened on both sides) is unconstitutional, yet to hold the third round of elections PROHIBITED by the constitution is constitutional...

    We had a 12:1 kill ratio over the insurgents. Going by that, it's obvious that the bad guys were the ones that overloaded their asses.

    Prior to the third round of voting the electoral law was amended by the Ukrainian Parliament.

    Unless of course, in your world rigging the elections (which happened on both sides)
    You have 0 evidence for voter fraud on the part of the Yushchenko campaign, I on the other hand have tape recordings proving that the Yanukovich campaign did indeed rig the elections:

    is unconstitutional, yet to hold the third round of elections PROHIBITED by the constitution is constitutional...
    So in your assbackwards universe the Supreme Court should have ruled to keep the results of the rigged election? Sorry but Viktor Yanukovych rigged the elections, then he ignored the no-confidence vote of the Chamber of Ministers and refused to step down, then the Supreme Court ruled that the election results were rigged and thus null and void, then the Ukrainian Parliament passed legislation and a Constitutional Amendment allowing for a third round of voting. Only on your planet could this possibly be construed as an unconstitutional election.
