    Kill the enemy, destroy as much of his combat power as possible, with as little collateral damage as possible. Constantly seek out and destroy the enemy on his own turf; an offensive strategy is always the best. The Confederate army employed a defensive strategy and look what happened to them.

    People talk about the, "winning strategy", as if there are an infinite number of strategies to choose from, and there isn't. You can employ an offensive strategy; static, or mobile. Or, you can employ a defensive strategy; static, or mobile.

    Yeah, the political scene in country has to whipped into shaped, but that will never happen before the enemy is beat down and that has to happen, before you can start getting the political scene shaped up. We learned that in Iraq; once conditions on the battlefield improved, the political situation improved almost exponentially.

    Why do ya'll make it so hard?? "Winning", is the Taliban destroyed and a stable government in control of the country.

    It took some of the smartest men in history, 13 years from the day they declared independence, to the day they finally established the government we have now and didn't have nowhere near as many issues to deal with. Now, you folks want all this wrapped up in a couple of years? Git real!

    Ah....But finding THEM & identifying THEM is always the problem when fighting shadows who kill by exploding roadside bombs.

    Large standing armies is not the way to win these type of wars.

    Ultimately, that is the only way to win a war.

    Why??
    Because it is easy to SAY it but we've been fighting over there for 8 years with good troops. If it's so easy....why haven't we won yet?

    None of this invalidates what he said.

    Who said that doing it was going to be easy? The concept isn't as complicated as you all would make it out to be. Actually executing that concept is going to be damn hard. But, you keep confusing things with all the, "what's the winning strategy", whining.
